THURSDAY THIRTEEN




13 Reasons to have a cat (or more)

1. My first cat helped me to filter boyfriends and thus not to commit errors. The once who only faked they love cats to please me were eliminated immediately

2. Mr. Gattino had first to convince my cat and then me but that took only one evening.

3. Cats are very good tissus when you are sad

4. Since I have cats I also host mice once in a while

5. Especially one cat always wakes me up at around 4 just to show me how nice it is that I don't have to get up at 6 !

7. You have always company and can talk to them, which looks far better then talking to a wall

8. They always agree with you

8. Purrs and soft fur is good against stress

9. Your kitchen will always be well ranged if you leave any food on the table it could disappear misteriously

10. If anything gets broken you always can blame the cat. She doesn't bother

11. They force you to wash your windshield on a regular base because they decorate it with paw prints

12. They keep your heart in good shape because you have to learn not to drop dead when you open your wardrobe and something jumpes out on you.

13. You are never alone in a bathroom !

My daughters want a cat so badly. After this list..I may have to rethink my stance..:)

Mar said...

I believe you!! I love paw prints, though, that would be no reason for me to clean my windows!
Our son loves to visit cat owners, he pointed out how relaxing it is to have a purring kitty on your lap...
Happy TT :)

Hi Gattina!

I've put some more photos of Mitzi up today...yes, my computer's fixed so now I can blog again. I was having withdrawal symptoms...you know, boredom, crankiness, eating too much chocolate, etc, etc.

I'm already convinced. We have three!

Hello Gattina!
I'm back at home and on internet. you're right, cats are the best friends of humans! That's why I have 5 now at home! Pedro me réveille en pleine nuit pour sortir! Il faut dire que je n'utilise pas les litières dans la maison et il est très gentil alors il me prévient quant à Ticoune elle se retient jusqu'au matin et refuse de quitter sa Mélissa! Tiens je crois que Tiger s'est caché dans la maison hier soir! J'espère qu'il ne m'a pas laissé un cadeau!

Spoken like a true cat person! Lovely list!

Maribeth said...

Wonderful list and I love the cartoon as well. I did not do a TT but instead I am celebrating de-lurking day! Hope you stop by!

colleen said...

I guess I'm deprived because I have no cat but do have a dog. I wonder how the word cat-astrophic came about?

Melli said...

I knew this one would be good! I don't like using MY cats for tissues though -- Kitty SHED's profusely and I always end up with fur in my nose ... and my mouth... and stuck to my face! LOL! And like Mar - I don't wash the paw prints off my windshield! I like them there!

That was a great list Gattina! Your cats are very fortunate to have you as their caregiver...

Sandy Carlson said...

Great cartoon, as usual, Gattina! This is very funny, even for this dog person. Hosting mice as well cracked me up. God bless.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Ahh, cats are wonderful things. I am considering exploring adopting a few more. I've got to be nuts, but I'm thinking about it!

Lori said...

Great reasons but I still wont get a cat...they just arent for me;) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Gattina,
this is only first edition, ja? Nicht war?

I think it's about 52 times 13 reasons to have a Cat or more.

Great TT.

Mine is postponed to next week due to the %¤#&%¤% fact my pictures on my last post was not visible to my readers - when warned about it, I worked until about 6 am. Damit musst es 24 stunden an top bleiben.

What a fun list. I especially liked number 3, it just made me smile.

Happy TT

Wonderful points all! but just number 8 I would ask about. Your cats always agree with you? Our cat needs lessons then, because he doesn't agree that we feed him the best food, he doesn't agree that we should have a late morning in bed, he doesn't agree he needs to be combed .... :) But I wouldn't be without him.

My cat is also a very good foot warmer. Happy TT.

Those are all so true! I wanted a cat or kitten for Christmas, but my husband says no, and I gotta try to keep the peace around here. I wish I had a little, purring furball!

Starrlight said...

Awesome List! Cats Rule =)

SwordMama said...

I so understand number 7! LOL!!!

Tink said...

I love the Lapis Lazuli and the Malachite Bastet in your next post! As you know I share your love for cats.
Thanks for visiting my expensive cities TT. If I remember correctly, Brussels was in the Top 50! ;-)
