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.

Want to live longer? – be owned by a Cat

As I write this for our blog, my 17 year old tuxedo Luna hops up on the desk and promptly walks all over the keyboard which goes berzerk into a frenzied …dghasldkv299u3905790570noasdfekckdddddddd;slkveoinfaldkkkkkkk…..!

Does this ever happen to you?

Of course, it does! In the end, will you erupt angrily and walk out, or will you seize your cat, give her a hug and kiss and tell her in baby talk, “…that’s not nice, sweetie…” Of course, you will opt for the latter!

Whether you realize it or not, your cat has a lot to do with your peace of mind, your reduced stress levels and your general good health and well being.

There have been many research projects undertaken to prove this point. Psychological stress and anxiety are related to cardiovascular events like heart attacks and stroke.

Cats are amazing. They entertain you and can keep you laughing and smiling all day long. They respond to your touch and your voice. They don’t talk back and they don’t disappoint. In other words, cats are stress reducing.

Over thousands of years, entire human cultures have recognized the human-cat bond and appreciate and adore cats for the incredible creatures they are. Just look at the Egyptians – a culture that admired their intelligence, companionship, love and loyalty.

Not only that, cats are easy companions. They are clean, personable and intelligent. They seem to read our minds and they anticipate our moves. When we’re under the weather, they lie down beside us and purr. They do this anyway as a daily routine, since contrary to popular belief, cats are very social creatures.

Kittens – well, that is yet another topic! My daughter recently adopted a calico kitten that literally bounces off the wall at her home in non-stop play. She’s a dynamo who constantly amazes and amuses and — what else —makes us laugh.

Now that you know that cats will help you live longer, happier lives, run like crazy to your neighborhood shelter and take advantage of the quantity discount!
