The Cat in the Hat is NOTHING!


We've had a cat on the can, a cat clearing a printer paper jam and now, courtesy of Stacey, a cat that forces his owners to decorate with old paint ladders.

In case you missed it, we were talking about Peanut's fancy pet bed, and many of you told us what your dog or cat likes to relax in. Stacy said they had a ladder in their living room for a paint job, and Casper took a liking to the platform designed for the paint can. So they added a pillow and left the ladder in the living room permanently. Stacey, I must say, after seeing the picture of the ladder, that you really should paint it up, maybe hang some cat treats from it and then you'd have a real conversation piece! But what's great is that you always have a ladder ready for high jobs in that room without having to drag the ladder in! Look what the cat dragged in? Heck, Casper's owners are the ones doing the dragging in for the cat!

If you all have any more crazy pictures of things your cat or dog has taken claim of, send them to PetsSpeak@aol.com. Also, don't forget the online "Me and My Pet" slide show The Leaf-Chronicle is starting. Send as many pictures as you want, one per e-mail to: community@theleafchronicle.com. Put "community pet photo" in the subject line, identify those in photo and include a contact number in case we have to reach you.

If I didn't know better, I might think you are making fun of me!!!! But, since I know how crazy you are, Sandy, I KNOW that can't be the case.

This is NO WORSE than one of those 10 feet tall cat tree things! And, it's functional for purposes other than cat slumber. And, it isn't in the living room, it's in the puppies' room!! Geez, give me a break. I would have had to draw the line with the living room.

And, since it IS functional, we can't decorate it. We really do take it and use it when we need it for something, but, yes, we do always put it right back. As you can see from the superior look on Casper's face in the picture, he would allow nothing less.

And believe it or not, IF I can remember correctly, it was the hubby's idea to put a cushion on it for the cat! So there!

You're right Stacey,Casper's ladder is no owrse than the tall cat tree or perch or whatever you want to call them We have one and have moved it to different rooms trying to find the best spot for it but it doesn't matter where we put it, they get bored with it after awhile so it goes back to the basement. It's about time to drag it back up again.
As far as where we put things, you shuld see what we ahve to do for now. We have to monitor the cat food to keeping Courtney (our fat cat ) and Brittany out of Penelope's low residue food and vise versa. So we now have thier food dishes on each side of the fireplace in our family room. I ahve to explain when someone comes in ha. The things we do for our animal kids huh?

Stacey, do not, repeat, do not decorate, paint or hang little fuzzy mice for it. If King Feline likes his stepladder, leave it as it is.

For my cat I went through the trouble to make a large Kitty Palace for my ungrateful cat. Yes, a Kitty Palace. Six feet tall, Four feet wide, Four floors, Carpet, lookout windows, Dangly fuzzy mouse, balls with bells, and other junk. The perfect Palace for cats to run, hide, chase, and do whatever cats like to do.

The cat wouldn’t have anything to do with it. Nothing. That ungrateful cat. I even tried to bribe the little monster. I tied to give the devil cat treats in the Kitty Palace and he would just look at me and walk off.

After about a year of the Kitty Palace that the ungrateful monster devil cat never used, I dragged it outside (Kitty Palace, not the cat,) and with a sledgehammer smashed it up in to small pieces for kindling. At last, The Kitty Palace was used for something.

Stacey, don't worry, the ladder is no worse than taking the bed off its frame so the dogs wouldn't have to jump so far. (Well, and to prove a point to the hubby) As long as Casper is happy, that's all that matters. I think it's cute.

See everyone. Dragons do have hearts. And we thought they were just all scaly and cold.

Exactly. After all that The Feline King Ungrateful Evil Monster Devil Cat likes cardboard boxes. I bought new something or another a while back. Unpacked it and left the cardboard box on the floor and the cat played in it. For days The Feline King Evil Demon Monster Devil Cat played in the box for days.

Alice, Yes I will keep you in mind. The next time I have any thing like Kitty Palace or cat paraphernalia that my Ungrateful Evil Demon Monster Devil cat don't want, you can have.

Oh my gosh! I think hubby would draw the line on this one!

Dragon, I would have taken your beautifully sounding cat condo for my girls. My motto is…“Free is my friend” My girls love their ‘monkey tree’ as we call it. After all Cheetah was named after Tarzans monkey because of her climbing skills. She is just like a monkey! We call her monkey more then Cheetah! We put their monkey tree in the sun room in a corner by the windows. They love the thing and some times fight over a platform. They will sit or lay and look out the windows for hours at a time gazing at the wildlife in our yard. We like to think they are watching TV.

Pam and Sandy, I gave you a reply on the Road Warrior column about volunteering and the Humane Society and Animal Control. Sorry it is so long. I did not realize just how long it was until I posted it. My mom does call me the Mouth of the South!

Dragon, I'm with the other girls on wishing you hadn't destroyed that fantastic cat palace! Cats Are Us would have loved that! Gerta the assistant directors husband has made them cages. You sound like my husband again with getting so mad at the cat over not using the palace then destroying it. Temper, Temper! You know it sounded so great that you might ahve been able to do something with that idea and make some money selling them It's a thought. It is nice to know in spite of all your spouting about the "Devil Cat" and how you make fun of our obsessions that you really do care that much. You really are one of the "good" guys!
And I told you guys how our cats get bored with thier kitty tree but they will climb on top of the kitchen cabinets and peer down on us lowly humans from up there. They have tons of toys and yet yesterday Penelope was playing with a drink coaster. Sometimes when I toss one of thier toys in the floor for them they look at me like "what do you want me to do with that piece of crap?" Then when it's thier idea it can be a favorite thing to play with. They boggle the mind.
While I'm on here I want to bering this up. We talked about the newspaper comic "Poncho" on one of ouor blogs and how some of us read it. Did anyone see the sad one about the pigeon a couple of weeks ago? Here's the story. Poncho and his owner are taking a walk and Poncho barks at some kids, his owner says Poncho don't bark at the children, he barks at some squirels, owner says don't bark at the poor squirels, he barks at the ppigeons and owner says nothing, Poncho asks you don't care if I bark at the pigeons? Owner says Nah, nobody cares about ppigeons. Next it shows one little pigeon with a big tear on it's face and it say "I didn't ask to be bor". It made me want to cry! I know you guys all probably think I'm nuts but they are little inocent birds after all. I know they poop everywhere and make messes but they are Gods vreatures too ans feel sorry for them.

I can't type for Sh-t today, I hope you could all figure out that the pigeon in the cartoon said "I didn't ask to be born" Please excuse all of my typo's. As I mentioned to Sandy before, I start typing fast trying to type as fast as I think and that doesn't work too well. Bear with me guys!

I just got a e-mail from Amy at the Humane Society about a lost dog. The dog's name is Gutter and he is a brindle boxer and is brown. He has been missing since December 1. I know his family is so worried! In case any of you don't get the updates from the Humane Society here is thier address so you can sign up for thier updates and photos of missing animals. www.humanesociety.com
It's great they post the photos so we can all be on the look out for any of the missing animals.

Pam, remember it is a cartoon after all! Being an avid animal lover, I do understand your emotions.

One day a pigeon landed on the metal awning outside my sunroom. I have documented over 70 birds in my yard but this was the first and only pigeon to ever be in the yard. I have doves which are similar to pigeons. I live a bit in the county and I assumed this fellow was off track and maybe taking a little rest before moving on. The pigeon stayed for a while and gave me a great viewing opportunity. My conclusion; they are a beautiful bird filled with vibrant colors!

WOW! "The Feline King Ungrateful Evil Monster Devil Cat". THAT is a mouthful of a name for a poor wittle kitty cat. Yes, Dragon, barf.

I'm with Pam though. There are enough of us "crazy pet people" that would pay good money for a Kitty Palace like you described. Have you seen the prices they charge for those kitty tree things?? Holy cow! This could be that big money maker everyone looks for in life. Creater of the KITTY PALACE. Think about it.

Dragon, I'm not kidding about that being a good idea to make the Kitty Palaces and put them on the market. Ther is a market for that and you really could become rich from this. If you got it on QVC you become a millionaire in one day or less. Things sell out in minutes there. And think about what you just said about the trademark- what goes better with a palace than a dragon? Perfect! Only don't make the trademark just a head do the whole dragon! Some people ( me included )don't care for just heads of things. Kind of looks like something has been beheaded,ha. Besides the whole dragon would be cute. I think we may have really come up with something here. Of course you will have to find a manufacturer and etc. but the other girls and I can help come up with good PR and advertizing ideas. I love doing that and have always been pretty good at it too. Hey I might even be able to come up with your logo ( dragon )too since I dabble with art and I made a the logo for a docotors business card here in town. Anyway think about it. Once you got it on the market and it is a big hit you can just go to the mailbox and ppick up checks! I ahve a friend who has a family member who has been doing that for yers and hasn't worked a day since!

Yea skeeter, I know it really is just a cartoon but being emotional as I am it makes me think of real situations when I see things like that. I really have to make myself not dwell on things like that since I can't change the whole world and the way other people think. Than k God there are a lot of good people who love animals and want to help.
Sounds like you like to watch the birds too. I have a bird feeder on the deck so the girls and I can watch the birds and the squirels. We have the most beautiful birds here. The red ones are so deep red and the Bluejays really blue. We also have smaller bluebirds ans don't know what they are but man they are so deep blue, gorgus! We ahve all kinds of other birds too, yellow, Finches I think and doves and several others that I have no idea what they are but we love to watch them Jon gets all pissed off becasue sometimes they poop on the deck. He made me take the food off and put it where we couldn't see it for a month. The cats and I missed them so much he let us put it all back. They do make messes but they are worth it. Sometimes they will eat together ( the different kinds ) and sometimes they run each other off but they are fun to watch. The suuirels are fun too and they get really aggressive. We have this huge window in our morning room in front of the bird feeder and they will actually jump onto the window trying to get to the cats. It's funny. It sounds like they are going to break the window they hit it so hard. I worry about the birds hitting it because sometimes they hit hard too. I don't want one to get hurt and so far not happened.

Pam,
Remember the license plate game that we played as kids while in the car on the interstate with our parents? How many different states can you spot on the drive? Well, bird watching at our feeders is sort of the same kind of game. I have never had a sun room before so when we moved into this house, I really got obsessed with all the animal activity outside those windows!

We once had a bird feeder attached to the windows with suctions cups. We could really see our feathered friends up close then. We had to remove it when the girls came into our home. They would try to get the birds and I was afraid they were going to give themselves brain damage from hitting their heads on the glass windows! They really bumped those noggins hard at times!

It is so relaxing to sit on my swing in the yard and listen to the songs of the many birds we have in our yard. It is fascinating to observe them in their little bird worlds. It broke my heart the day I saw the resident hawk get a cardinal (red bird) from a bush in the woods. But I must admit it was fascinating to watch him eat his meal high up top a tree. He must eat too! It was as if I was watching a National Geographic program on TV viewing that scene…

Yea skeeter, I know what you mean about watching the birds and squirels like that. We (me & my girls ) love watching them. I haven't had any problems with them jumping and hurting themselves. They just scratch on the window and get excited sometimes. Mostly they are so lazy they just watch the show. It's the squrils that jump on the window trying to get to them, so funny. We have very agressive squirels. We live in the suburbs but are in a cul de sac and it's almost like the sountry in back of our house with lots of big trees and the animals think they arein the country I think,ha. Like I said we ahve a big window with a great view so we really get into it.
One time it hurt my heart because we were watching the squirels and a big big ole Hawk flew down and grabbed a squirel, flew back in the air with it ripping it apart as it flew. It was so awful! Jon said the same thing as you when it happend, Halks gotta eat too. I'm jsut so glad it was so fast so hopefullly the squirel didn't have time to know what happened and didn't suffer. The wild life is facinating to watch.

Hi Pam. I'm right here. I like your suggestions. Thanks for your positive comments and enthusiasm. But, realistically, I probably won't go anywhere with it. At least not until the wife says I can retire from my real job so that I could devote all my time to the Kitty Palaces.

I've been weighed down by vicious rumors and untruths that have just devestated me and made my scales turn gray again. The rumor is that I'm a big teddy bear and...oh the horror....kindhearted! It has bewildered me. What have I done to provoke such blasphemy???? I try so hard to be a bad dragon.

I feel the need to rectify the situation and convince these rumor spreaders that I am not these terrible things they accuse me of being. I must go hurl a cat and watch him fly. It always gives me great enjoyment, and that warm and fuzzy feeling will return to me. I hope to fully recover soon.

You are a terrible terrible fire breathing dragon! Actually it really wasn't good you tore up the kitty palace but you've been repriminded and we've got your number. Like Skeeter said you can't pull one over on us. We may be soft when it comes to the animals but we are very bright and intelligent women and so far we still outnumber you in here so be careful!

No, my dear, we do not loose our tail when someone pulls on it. It will provoke a tingley sensation in our other tail though. I think someone is on the road to recovery when you talk of pulling tails and other mischievous antics to large, mean fire breathing dragon. Soon, yes soon, I say, I have the confindence that they will graduate to pulling tails on small dumb animals.

I must say I may recall my comments on the Kitty Palace. We were out and about yesterday, or should I say, I was forced to go so I could carry the 50lb. bag of dog food. At the pet store there was an apparatus that was about five feet tall for cat to hide, climb, and other things cats do. The price tag on it was $249.99. I about fell out in the floor. Materials to build this contraption was no more than thirty dollars. Pam, now I understand why you think I could make my fortune selling Kitty Palaces! I had a hard time sleeping last night from all the dollar signs floating through my head.

Okay girls, this is your big chance to get in on the ground floor of this goldmine. I may require a small capital investment to get off the ground. Pam has already volunteered to handle my advertising and graphic design. I will also need an executive assistant, a technical engineer, a technical advisor, someone to fix my cup of coffee, a gopher (this requires picking up my tools after I hurl them across the room in frustration), and someone to clean up my mess when I'm done. I will be accepting applications.

Pam, as far as the logo for your graphic design, I really like the dragon on the SOBE drink logo. It could be tweaked a little (so that I don't get sued), or I would be willing to consider an original design. When can I expect to see your first draft?

I will check out the Sobe bottle just so I know what it looks like and where your head is at this point. We want something that will win over people something scary but cute and catchy.

P.S. I meant copywrite not copyright,and Dragon, you can'tbe worrying about the gopher just yet. I'm afraid you'll have to get your own coffee and thrown tools for the beginning of this project. When you uh I mean "WE" start raking in the big bucks on this you'll be able to aford a gopher for each single trival thing you want.

Hey Pam, quit trying to hog all the positions in this fledgling company!!! You can't be the advertising dept and the graphic designer and the Executive Assistant!! You've got to leave something important for the rest of us to do. I want to be the Executive Asst. I could probably be the gopher part time, at least until we can afford to get a regular one.

And Stacey, you know we really could make a real business and make it a successful if everyone did thier part. Especially Dragon. I'd love to see a prototype wouldn't you? Get busy Dragon!

Oh, I must get in on this venture! Hubby and I have renovated our house mostly by ourselves. So I am mighty handy with tools plus my dad worked on an assembly line for many years, so I know a bit about them as well! I can help you Dragon when you get to the point of mass production of this Kitty Kastle Kingdom! In the beginning I could help by getting you your coffee but I do not think you would like my services in that department! Everyone says I make coffee so weak, why bother making it?! They call it colored water! I have a boat and can put the Dragon Logo on it and advertise for you at the big bass tourneys here in GA, well, as long as I can get a tax write off of course! My brother has a boat that regularly cruises the Cumberland in Clarksville and I am sure he would give great exposure as well. I am so excited just thinking of all the moo-la this venture will bring the animal kingdom and I like the idea of no kill clinics! Did I mention one of my cats is the Queen of Sheba? Being a queen, she could help out by testing each Kingdom as they come off the assembly line! You can say they are Queen approved! Oh my, how the brainstorming is coming today…

Now changing the subject back to Dragon tails, I asked this question because I was planting some bushes last week and I dug up a little lizard. He was a type I had never seen before so I was examining him before I put him back into the ground in a safe place for the remainder of the winter. I assumed he was in such a state of hibernation that I could get a good look at him. I decided he was most interesting and pointed to hubby as to how they look like little dinosaurs and dragons. That is about the time where his little tail just popped off and into my hands! I felt so bad for the little thing. Hubby assured me that loosing his tail was painless but I felt bad just the same. I quickly dug a nice bed under the leaves and soft dirt and carefully placed the little cutie in his new bed of warmth. Just made me wonder about dragon tails…

I admire your abilities for buikding. I'm afraind I'm one of those women who rely on others for anything requiring a hammer or such. I make up for that by being a good cook, not bragging just confident,ha.
You do realize you can get a tax break if you advertize on your boat like that don't you? You know we really may be on to something here. We might be able to start or own little enterprise and watch it go shy high! I have another idea to pitch that I thought of a couple of years ago but didn't know anyone who could build it for me to market. Will tell you and Dragon about it later, it really is a good idea.

If you’re going to follow the castle and dragon idea, you could call them the "Kitty Kingdom" Following the lines of having different models at different price ranges. The Castle, The Carriage House, The Castle Tower (like the kitty condo) and so on. You could make the smaller ones that are less expensive part of the village.(the baker, the candle stick maker, etc.) OH and you could hire a seamstress to make a dragon snuggler, you know like the Garfield’s where the cats sleep in his mouth except make it the dragons belly.

Attachable “Kompartments” sold separately! Ah, all Kitty Kondos can attach with a simple latch to make really large Kitty Kastle Kingdoms! And the Kitty Kingdom Klothes is a great idea well, maybe not for the cats but for the doggies like Aimee that like to accompany their pals like Trouble in the Kitty Kingdom!
You better run with all these ideas Dragon before a Dragon Slayer steals these thoughts!

Guys, Guys! This is too much! I am loving every idea you guys are sending!!!!!!! See what we can do? We need to get together and do a brainstorming session! We really have got onto something here! I think we can cover every position too and we may have to intermingle a bit with the positions but we can do this!
Ok, my idea and it has to stay among us till I get the copywrite on it so mum's the word people, here it is. I want to make covers for cat boxes that look like regular pieces of furniture so no one knows what it is but your cats. It will be made in all kinds designs ans styles in all kinds of materials, like cherry, oak, etc. Probably other materials too.
Calling the whole line Kitty Kingdom is fantastic too and the spelling of Kitty Kastle is great too! I am telling you we do have a idea that will make it is we go at the right way. We have to get together and make a plan! Sandy you'll be great in PP/marketing since you already have a foot in advertizing.
Stacey I know you probably aren't thrilled with the idea but the Kitty Klothes lines is going to go over great! Oh and Adrienne, the Kitty dragon snuggler if fab!!!!!!!!!! Dragon your opinion of us women should be with new respect now. We are gonna make you rich and all of us along side of you too!i have to get for now but we will pick this back up later!

Pam, I love your idea of covered cat boxes that look like furniture. Covered boxes are just plain plastic, why not dress them up? You can make a line that would look good in a bathroom (where lots of people keep them), like one designed to look like a fish tank or something water-related. And for the kitchen, something food related like an old-fashioned vegetable bin or something.

Sandy, those were exactly like waht I was thinking of, hey great minds think alike right? I think it would be great to do this. There are so many ideas of how to make them besides what we have talked about and i just think they would go over well. People with small spaces especially would go for them.
