Dogs Rule Cats Not so Much

Zelda the cat

Zelda looks like she is sitting on Lots’ head. She could if she wanted. Going to have to find me some catnip.

Sheesh, let me tell you if it ain’t one thing it is another. I just heard that Mary said yes to her daughter not same litter as me and Sophie—a people litter. Her daughter asked if she could leave her dogs here while she goes away for two weeks. I’m down with that. I like Lacey and Piglet. Lacey is a bloodhound mastiff cross, and Piglet is a French Bull dog. Piglet is full of himself since he is not neutered he spends a lot of his time acting dominant. I’m so over that. Could you scratch right under my foreleg there? Yeah right there.

The thing is that Zelda is coming back. Zelda is Mary’s other daughter’s cat. She used to live here when Sophie and I were little. Talk about bossy that cat ran the house. Zelda now lives with Lacey and Piglets’ human. Because their human is going away, Zelda is coming to stay right along with the dogs. Don’t mess with her; I’m tellin’ you she will scratch your eyes out if you do.

I don’t get cats at all. She loves this really stinky stuff anyway?  Zelda has been known to flip for it (LITERALLY even), but what could be so thrilling about a piece of plant?  You can’t eat it.  You can’t throw it in the air and catch it. You can’t lay under the table and chew on it for hours and hours. You can’t shred it into itty bitty pieces.  What’s the attraction??

From the Wikipedia (btw, thank Dog for the Wiki) – Catnip and catmints (AKA Nepeta) are known for the behavioral effects they have on cats, not only domestic cats but big cats also (lions, tigers, leopards, etc.).

When cats sense the bruised leaves or stems of catnip, they may roll over it, paw at it, chew it, lick it, leap about and purr, or heavily salivate. Some will growl, meow, scratch, or bite the hand holding it.  Long story short, catnip pleasantly stimulates a cats’ pheromonic receptors, typically resulting in temporary euphoria

I get the same effect from a Milkbone, and the brown truck but whatever.  And they say WE’RE stupid.  I’m going to scout out some of that stuff so that I can keep on Zelda’s good side. She scares me.

I say Dogs rule and CATS drool! But don’t tell Zelda I said that.canine cunundrums
