It’s not easy being me….I have a LOT of responsibilities in this house believe me. Keeping everything operating the way I want it to operate is pretty much a full-time job.
I have to keep one eye on the clock at all times. At precisely 5AM I wake up Mom every day and supervise the selection of my breakfast preparation…..the minute I’ve checked out what’s in the dish, I tell her it’s time to take me out on my leash for our first cruise through the yard – I know that breakfast dish will be waiting for me when we get back inside! I have specific spots in the yard I have to check – the two cats next door need to be reminded constantly whose yard THIS is so I “mark” the trees along the property line every morning. The rest of the day I circulate around the house to my various perches and make sure things are as they should be outside in my yard. If I spy something that doesn’t belong there (like those darn cats) I run to get Mom and tell her in no uncertain terms that something is amiss. Later in the day I sit at the front door and watch for the mailman. As soon as he puts mail in our box I run and tell Dad since he likes to get the mail.
I also tell Mom every single time I use my litter box. Yep….I’m all for flushing as soon as I’ve used it. Cleanliness is next to Catliness you know! I make sure she takes care of “it” immediately or I’ll pester her to death. Hey – I’d clean it myself if I could!
Anyway, you can see that living here is a very busy life. Still I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Mom and Dad love me and I love them and we look out for each other. That’s why I don’t mind one bit being House Guardian and Household Manager.
It’s a tough job…….but SOMEONE has to do it!
