Tabby Tuesday with Simon the Advisor

tabby tuesday simon 03072023

Howdy gang, I think the kittens, Maxwell and Macy, are in serious need of some advice from an older and wiser kitty.  No Brian, quit laughing, of course I meant me, I am older than they are and I am wiser too.  Quit laughing Brian, it’s not really funny.  Anyways, I will offer them some tips, maybe just two, hopefully they will listen.

First, you really shouldn’t eat the cardboard scratchers. They are there to scratch on, not to eat.  We have all kind of yummy food here so you don’t need to be eating the cardboard.  It might look like a good source of fiber but it really isn’t.

Second, it’s quite okay to walk up and down the stairs and to walk down the hall.  You really don’t have to run everywhere, there is no need to be in a hurry.  Running can be a bit noisy, especially when other kitties are trying to nap.  Take a chill, walk and enjoy the view.   What do you mean Brian? I never did that, did I?

Oh, and we’re all very proud of you Maxwell and Macy for learning to sleep through the night like the rest of us do.  When the Dad calls Lights Out Maxwell goes in the Cat Tree cubby for the night and Macy goes to her Cat Tree Cup.  Y’all caught on to that really quick like.

Okay, that’s it for now, I’ll be seeing you soon.  Y’all have a fun Tabby Tuesday.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Being closer in age to them, Simon, you are more like a big brother so they might actually listen to you! They sound like great kittens, though!

That is good of you to give them the tips you learned from experience, Simon. Glad to hear they are sleeping through the night too.

maybe your example will help calm them down 🙂

The young ones can do some silly things at times. Nelson is still in the crazy stages too, but he is getting better most of the time.

LOL…kitties do that…sometimes I really wonder why they ate the scratchers…

Nicki would “eat” any cardboard that came into the house. Chew, spit out, chew, spit out, repeat.

As for walking instead of running…nonsense! When you’re young and full of beans, of course you have to run everywhere. Their turn will come in time, Simon, when they start saying the same as you with whoever the newest/youngest kitties in your household are (in the future). 🙂

Simon, mom here is glad I pretty much sleep through the night. The first two hours after lights out are still a bit noisy as I am settling my little family into my room or mom’s and my room…that needs announcements. Mom loves announcements. (she does, actually).

Thank you Simon for this new information! I am totally shocked that Cats understood her stand the words lights out and go to bed I had no idea they would do that from everything I’ve heard about cats they never do what they’re told.

It is quite clear that they need advice from someone who is older and responsible

OMCs Simon I think the advice was quite good…in the not too distant past you were receiving advice from Brian about stranger danger etc.
I hope you don’t have to assign a hall monitor for double M’s.
But all in all the running is aOKAY as long as the know what lights out means

“cardboard being a good source of fiber” I’m DYING!! Oh Simon! That is one PAWESOME tip!! As for the running up and down the stairs, I have to agree with Brian. I distinctly remember some kitty who shall remain nameless doing the same! And didn’t said kitty also knock all of the toys out of the basket? Just think had there been TWO kitties the same age as you, you both would have been running up and down the stairs too!!! Love you Simon!!

You made me smile. Great advice though even though you didn’t follow it in your youth. Usually the way it goes.

Way to go Maxwell and Macy. Getting into the program is appreciated by your siblings and especially your peeps.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

Good advice is always welcome and the scratcher doesn’t sound like a great chew choice to me either.

Good tips! We wish a certain kid on this floor would learn she doesn’t have to run down the hall screaming every time she goes out. We’re by the elevator and it’s really annoying. Those are the same humans who were complaining when the elevator was out that humans were slamming the door to the stairs near their door.

Excellent advice. We always need to remind Reesie that the scratcher is not for eating.

They are fortunate to have such good big brother to give them advice. Won’t be long and they will no longer be kittens but cats that don’t run but stroll along with the rest of you.

Excellent advice. My Rusty and Rudy run everywhere too- including over me. 🙂

Simon, I think you found your calling, or perhaps your next career. Mixing advice with compliments is always a winner!

Eating cardboard? It might be they are just little and want to chew things, babies and children seem to love to test their choppers.

As for the running, good luck slowing down kittens. It’s one reason i was not in a big hurry for my children to walk, once they walk, they dart!

TBT has never called Lights Out to get us ta sleep. But he does sometimes turn out all the houselights and says HE is going to bed. And we tend to follow him there. Marley curls up on a corner. Lori curls up in the crook of his knees. Laz comes and goes sometimes next to Lori or opposite her at the knees. Ayla has her special places but wanders around him for attention near dawn when all is quiet and calm.

That is probably about the same thing actually…
