Prompted by a snippet of conversation between me and DH on our way to the ferry the other week...

At Ferry toll booth:

Him: Why is there cat hair in my wallet?
Me: Why should your wallet be different from every other part of your life?

How many times do you find yourself chuckling about some comment or exchange, because you're thinking at the same time, "Only in a house run by cats!
" ?

What are yours?

Me: No, no, we can't put the bed over there. Then Zissou won't be able to get down from the window!

No, the cat wasn't in your food. She was sitting on the table & your food was in her way, so she put her bum on it.

Daughter: Why are you sitting on the floor?
Me: Because Bijou is asleep in my chair and I don't want to disturb him.

Still Hittin' 'Em Right Between The Eyes
Living with cats, I declare that I will never have a normal phone conversation ever again. Case in point:

On a recent phone call to a customer service representative, I was asked to "hold while my account was accessed", which I agreed to do. So, while I thought I was on hold, I noticed that George was walking down my Ranch-O-Rama Bowling Alley-style hardwood hallway with his big blue nose shoved way too far up Lex's patootie. So, I said loudly, "GEORGE! Get your nose out of your mother's butt this instant!!".

On the other end of the phone, I hear a shocked gasp and then gales of laughter. I proceeded to try to explain that I was talking to my CATS and that I knew how absolutely horrible that must have sounded ... all to no avail. This woman was cracking up, had lost all control and wasn't gonna recover from it. She quickly put me on REAL hold whereupon a different customer service rep took over my call, ostensibly to allow the first one to get a grip on herself before she took another call.

Knowing friends and family members who work at call centers, I know that all of you folks have that one "special" call of the day ... the memorable ones who for some reason stick in your mind over all the others. My guess is that for that woman, I was her "special" call of that day. *smile*

No, you cannot sleep with your butt in my face.
or my personal favorite
Which one of you little hairballs crapped in the tub? You can still use the litterbox, even if if it raining and you can't go in the bushes.

Ever since we started the supervised outside visits, they think they have to "go" outside. Cuts down on litter use, but it is kind of a pain in the neck sometimes. 1 or 2 of them have started using the tub sometimes, and somebody can hit the toilet occasionally. I wish I knew who was doing what.

Maybe its because I'm a...
Dad: Why haven't you finished your toast?
Me: Tilly stole it when I got up to get a drink and she's licked all the marmite off.

(And if that wasn't bad enough she'd started to play with (shred) it. I had to distract her with a ping pong ball before she'd let it go.)

Me: Yes but only for a few hours and in the same position
Girl Friend: Why didn't you move
Me: Tom took up the rest of the bed
Girl Friend: Why...how...I don't want to know
Me: *laughs*

"No Tom that bag of chips is not a toy"...he really needs to learn this one, I am so tired of finding shredded bags of chips.

to where a piece of clothing has fallen, or a book, or a shoe, in order to puke in it!

I've had that conversation with both my boyfriend and my mom.
