Letter to Pe'ah binti Su'ud

Dear Pe'ah,
I heard that congratulations are in order. You have self-appointed yourself as the guardian of Madam Pe'ah Sushi Quattro. Below are the initiation rites that you'll have to undertake.

Never leave the door of the wardrobe open. Some people may want to help you with the laundry.

Never ever leave the toilet seat up. Pe'ah may want to have a taste of "flavoured" water. Eeeuwww....how disgusting!

Be prepared to sit on the floor. Your feline may decide to conquer your dining set.

Did we tell you that you MUST buy the tallest cat tree available? Oh, and replace every quarter or so. The rate of wear and tear is just mind boggling.

Don't be lazy. Do your laundry. Don't expect a cat to help you fold the clothes as clothes in laundry baskets are very very comfy indeed.

If you think the largest bed in the house is yours, think again. Sharing is the order of the day.

Coffee table are comfy "lepak" spot too. Glass, wood, any material would do just fine.

The bigger picture. In case you don't get it.

Glass is dangerous for cats. Oh, and humans too if it gets broken....by mistake or by design. Accidents happen, you know...

Sorry. Prime position taken.

This is better than prime position. Don't you dare change the channel.

More of the sharing and caring option. Beds are fun play stations too.

Side tables are for the taking too. No furniture shall be left "un-furred."

Has she been spayed? Let me tell you, she will never ever regain her shape after giving birth.

These rites are just to facilitate you to obtain an "L" license in bringing up a cat. To gain a "P" plate, you'll have to undergo more vigorous tests, mostly practical, outdoors. To gain full license, you'll need to show exemplary performance for 24 months, provided the relevant feline is still alive. If for whatever reason Pe'ah dies while under your care, we'll suspend your license for life and then "tar and feather" you. har har har....purrr....meow!

Sage advice, oh Wise One. And except for the cat tree, I'd say that most of it applies for doggies, too ;)

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Your Highness,

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Sandy said...

Cutenessss !!! I agree ! Cats are the real house owner, everyone else are merely renting a space !

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Meowwmania,
Pe'ah tu bertapa kat satu pulau nun jauh di Barat sana. Tempat tu sejuk sangat.

Yang demok2 tu abang kita Tom dengan anak2 bini dia. Depa tu obese kata Mama. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Nur,
Those are my bro Tom, his wife Nikki, and children Michael, Ralf and Nikki. They live in your country. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

I think she's scared stiff. Tak respond langsung pun. purrr.....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Puteh,
Tak elok tau oouk tak tentu pasal. Kita orang ni semua dah toilet trained. Oouk kat tempat dia je, ada pasir wangi lagi. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,
You are very well trained. You understand my lingo. purrr.....meow!

I amsterdam said...

Err... is that you Brad? Tasting the flavoured water? Or is it Tom? Or Michael?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Mother of Ilham,
That's Nikki! And then she'll puke and of course get scolded by Mama! purrr.....meow!

Naz said...

WAHAHAHAHAAHAH!!!!

What a nice and thoughtful entry :)
Pe'ah has been busy rewriting the documents that Sushi Quattro voluntarily deleted last night as she hopped onto the laptop's keyboard.

Thanks thanks and more thanks for all these reminders. Am trying very hard to be a good mother and will do as much reading and (different sort of)consulting as I can from now on.....wah! Pe'ah is not going to expose herself to the wrath of Angie and Brad's mom ;D

Linking this on my FB page. Loads of cat lovers there too :)

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Naz,
Tell Pe'ah to always have back-up. We just loooove to spread ourselves on laptops too ....so warm and comfy....upon hindsight, me thinks Pe'ah may actually enjoy being "tarred and feathered". har har har.... purrr...meow!

Mama Huptihup said...

hahahaha this is a good one!!! hope kak pe'ah akan tabah mengharunginya!! LOL

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Lyana,
Kak Pe'ah is strong....sure can one. purrr....meow!

Angie, Catladyland/Katt Food said...

Have your cats been talking to my cats?? I think they know who the boss really is -- we humans just need to give it up!

tireless mom said...

Good luck Pe'ah. I belum berani lagi. Setakat tengok gambar je. Who knows with this letter I may re-think.

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Dear Angie,
The felines have their own way of communicating with each other. Thus, the same message gets to each one of them, all over the world. Talk to your cats, they'll enlighten you. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Yatt,
Baru niat je dah dapat pahala tau! We love you. MMMWWWAAHHHHH!!!! purrrr.....meow!

~Covert_Operations'78~ said...

Be prepared for the ride of your life, Pe'ah! Cats bring so much joy in return for not-very-much work. Cats help you exercise and get fit, too. I put mine on my lap and do the "1-2-Hug! 1-2-Hug!" with them.

Au and Target said...

Cats are efurrywhere!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

CO78,
You're pawsome....thanks furrr your vote of confidence. Yes, Pe'ah. You get free personal training too. Return that gym membership. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Au and Target,
You know how it is....you have a full house too over there. purrr.....meow!

lupie said...

Gulp - it reads more like a take-over of human domain by the feline species!!

P:S: Hehehe - I love the pix P'eah getting "flavoured water"! The butt oh-so-cun laa...

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Lupie dear,
Some of my family members are not too discerning. Then they complain coz Mama scolded them. purrr....meow!

Andrea Wh@tever said...

Pe'ah binti Su'ud? wow! what a whimsical romantic P.Ramlee-ish name.

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Andrea dear,
Romantically whimsical? Pe'ah, if you're reading this, purrrlease say thank you to Ms Whatever. purrr....meow!

Hi Lawyer cat,
What's your hourly rate? 20 fancy feast?
I need a "legal remedy"?
Love, Onion

TK said...

If only I can get one of those kittens..
Cats are so cuuutee when they are sleeping because they do it with styles. I mmg suka kacau kucing tido..such bad habit..especially kalau dorang tidur terlentang..

Oskar said...

Very informative, BOL!

Nubbin wiggles,
Oskar

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Hie Keiko! welcome to my super duper crazy world. Glad to be of service to your mummy. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Onion,

Cat-in-Sydney said...

TK Sensei,
Didn't anyone tell you to let sleeping cats lie? What if they have nightmares? Never ever tickle the belly of a sleeping cat. purrr....meow!

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Oskar dear,
You are indeed very handsome. Is this the beginning of something beautiful between a canine and a feline? purrr....meow!
