We sometimes have trouble understanding what Mom is talking about.
If she would just speak the language of food, I know Shakespeare would understand her all the time!
The other day she looked at us and said we crack her up.
One time when we were running too fast in the house we made the lamp fall down…
I think the lamp jumped ‘cuz it was scared of us!
…anyway, it cracked and Mom said it wasn’t any good.
If we crack her up, does that mean she isn’t any good?
She also loves to call us goofballs.
We aren’t balls…..we’re kitties.
We don’t even know what a goof is.
Maybe it’s some kind of food. Look….there’s two o’s in the middle of goof and there’s two o’s in the middle of food so it must be the same!
Shakespeare, the readers are going to think all you do is eat. Come to think of it, your face is in the food dish an awful lot!
Maybe…..but the doctor man doesn’t tell me I have to lose some weight like he tells you.
Hush! Back to understanding Mom. Sometimes she tells us we’re going to summer camp. We have no idea where this camp is and we’ve never seen Mom pack any of our toys in one of those box things to get us ready. What’s even more strange is that she seems to threaten us with that when we’re being super naughty.
Does that mean that camp is a bad thing?
See….we just don’t understand Mom all the time.
The only time we always understand Mom is when she mentions TREATS!!!

All humans are an enigma but so are we. They’ll never figure us out, and we will never figure them out. As long as you are well fed and get plenty of treats, don’t worry about it. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
We agree completely with you! Purrs and soft paw pats to all of you. 🙂
Humans…they have a strange language, don’t they?
But we love them anyway. Sooner or later we figure Mom will learn to speak meow. 😉
I have a hard time understanding some human behavior too – in fact, that was also my Monday post!
We must be thinking alike! Cool!!! 🙂
Milk, dinner and OUT are the only words we understand x
Those are GREAT words!!!
Our hooman confuses us a lot too. What is all this “don’t” and “stop it” and “leave it” and “don’t chew that”
Nutty, Nacho, Buddy & Basil
We hate “No” and “Get down” and “Stop it”……humans just shouldn’t be saying that to us!

Good to hear that others don’t understand those humans. Why can’t they be easy to understand like us??? Believe us……we don’t want to be going to summer camp. If your human mentions it………RUN!! 🙂
Our humans talk too much about things other than food and when we try to ‘steer’ their conversations, that’s just too tiring. So we just let them blather on and win their attentions with being cute. It works every time! Purrs…
Humans are suckers for our “cute” looks!!!! They have no clue that we all know how to do it. 🙂
