Questions, Answers

Today we answer questions from past comments...  We answer the ones we can answer.  Some we cant.

Going from newest to back as far as we chose, LOL!

Dragonheart, Merlin, and Devi asked:  "Did you open the drawer or take advantage of it being open?"

 I cant open a drawer.  TBT opens it sometimes and "first come first served"!  ~ IZA

Flynn and William both mentioned not getting drawer sleeping opportunities. 

We get the top one sometimes and a lower one less frequently.  Part of the reason we are allowed in the drawers is that TBT found a small bath floor mat that just covers his cloths in the drawer, so he isn't worried about our furs in his undercloths.  So, once a week, he takes it out to collect any whiskers and then vacuums it clean.

Megan said "I can't help but wonder who put those scratches in the side of the drawer, Iza.

Not me.  That dresser and rest of TBTs bedroom furniture goes back to 1978 and we sure arent the first cats to sleep in the drawers.  He is guessing that scratches are from Sport-Sport and Ralph (both girlcats), who were rather destructive in the early 80s.  ~ IZA

Many cats asked about the "milk rings".  Our milk used to come with pull-off rings.  Now they come with screw-off caps.  But TBT, (in his demi-godlike prediction abilities) saved a couple dozen of the old style pull rings.  I love them beyond all toys.  We will take pictures of them someday soon.  ~ AYLA

Colehaus Cats commented:  "Looking pretty comfy there, Marley... Wait! A treat in his pocket??? What is this thing we've been missing out on for our entire lifetimes??"

 Treats are tricky here.  We get regular kibbles only as treats.  TBT tosses them around the room while he eats his own foods.  We LOVE ADORE chasing them bouncing along the floor.  And he keeps some in his pockets daily.  You just never know when he will toss one down the hall, down the stairs, or just pushed of a kitchen counter while he is preparing his own dinner.

It isn't part of our daily food.  Just a surprise to keep us running around.  Sometimes he uses the "EGG" (has a hole in the top for making kibbles fall out when the egg is batted), and sometimes the puzzle box where we have to reach into holes in the side and find kibbles to pull out.  It is a FANTASTIC GAME and we love it.  ~ MARLEY

Hope you enjoyed those...

UPDATE: Ah my most beloved SPITTIKINS has zoomed over and I am going to rest MY weary head on HIS Tum fer a change.  He is so good to me...  ~ IZA

Thank you - I do love it when you provide answers. I had wondered how you were going to squirm out of admitting to damaging TBT's furniture - and you DIDN'T squirm out it, but had a perfectly reasonable and believable explanation. Well done!

Yin loves milk rings too. She carries them around and sings to them.

Ah....I love answers too. No one asks me anything so I don't have the chance to answerer. Darn. I love my puzzle box though. I must make mommy take it out again for me.

Mom is a whisker collector too. She still has Admirals. Mine are hard to find because they are white and the carpet is a pale color. Only if they fall on something with a color =to it can she see them. She has maybe a dozen in all these years of my living here. I have a Gotcha Day coming this month.

Thank you for answering our questions. I think my mum needs to get a small bath mat so I can sleep in one of the drawers.

We enjoyed those answers too and hope you have fun with Sir Spitty!

Esse assunto de gaveta me interessa muito, porque nunca me deixam ficar em uma gaveta, por mais que eu tente.

Actually, our bro was the one who forever ruined the drawer thing for everyone else. He could open drawers himself! The really bad part was his pulling out all the things from inside the drawer, "ruining" (Mom's word) a bunch of her stuff which pretty much made her cross. WMD was a name he totally earned!

I love it when you answer questions. I wish I would have asked one.

Thank you for your Treats answer! Treats tricky. Tossing treats around room. Pushing treats off kitchen counters. Check, check, and check. *taking notes to show Mom later*
