Cat’s Bill of Rights

Remember fidgeting at your sixth grade desk, while your teacher earnestly attempted to teach you about our country’s forefathers and how they created the Bill of Rights?

Now it’s your time to help create the first ever MyThreeCats.com’s version of the “Cat’s Bill of Rights”!
You and MyThreeCats.com will together author this marvelous document, combining our wisdom and experience with cats and creating a veritable Cat Manifesto!

The purpose of this document is to set forth ways in which our cats can attain “life, love, and the pursuit of happiness” in their brief, but meaningful lives. Your suggestions can be serious or humorous, but must ring true about cats and their nature. (Note: all comments will be screened for appropriateness by MyThreeCats.com staff before posting to this website.
By adding your comments and submitting your “Cat’s Bill of Rights” contribution to this blog site, you acknowledge that MyThreeCats.com reserves the right to publish your contribution as part of the MyThreeCats.com “Cat’s Bill of Rights” on any website or print publication owned or not owned by MyThreeCats.com.
Let’s get started.

Listed here are the first five tenets of the MyThreeCats.com’s Cat’s Bill of Rights:

I, cat extraordinaire, have certain unalienable rights:
#1  I have the right to assume my normal position on your lap and stay there for an indefinite period of time, until nature calls, someone opens a can of cat food, or a bug crawls across the floor.
#2  I have the right to walk all over your computer keyboard, !@#$$%^&*(()!! causing you to lose forever that hour long document you’ve been carefully typing and not saving.
#3  I have the right to tear through your bedroom at 3:00AM, knocking over who knows what and scaring the living daylights out of you.
#4  I have the right to decide if, when and where I allow you to pick me up, hug me and fuss over me. The optimal time is usually right before dinner. I will readily accept bribes, I am shameless.
#5  I have the right to send projectiles of litter and other assorted contents out of the litter box when using it, and scratch all the way to China if I so desire.
Now, it’s your turn! Add your comment, and together, we’ll create one of the cat world’s greatest achievements.

Cats are Natural Yin Yang Creatures

 

Did you ever see cats looking like this?   Cats love living in an ordered world, including how they arrange themselves spacially as they eat, sleep, meditate, and play.   Oftentimes, two of my cats will perch themselves on the same living room window sill, facing each other in an identical pose, looking perfectly content with their arrangement and with the world in general.

We found a purrfect catnip toy for you that reflects your cats’ natural yin yang.  Click here to view and enjoy some savings if you order 3 or more.  Put some yin yang into your cats’ playtime!   01347_yinyangtoyMO

Best Pet Friendly Cities – do you and your cat live in one?

We thought you might be interested in seeing how your city stacks up to the top 100 pet friendly cities.  WalletHub (August 8, 2017) provides this useful data.

“Since we live in a pet friendly city, does that mean we need to be friendly with one another?”

Years ago, pet owners had access to only a handful of businesses offering animal services and supplies.  But new pet businesses are cropping up every day to fill the demand of this growing breed of consumers. Today, we spoil our pets with all kinds of luxuries, such as gourmet pet cuisine, upscale hotel accommodations and even pet “dating” services.

With pet parents in mind, the 100 largest U.S. cities were analyzed across 21 key metrics. The data set ranges from minimum pet-care provider rate per visit to pet businesses per capita to walkability.

Here they are:
