I posted this several years ago and found it again today. I think you will enjoy this....


The following was found posted very low on a refrigerator door.

Dear Dogs and Cats:

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Racing me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this.. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort, however. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out on the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom! If, by some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge in an attempt to open the door. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years - canine/feline attendance is not required.

The proper order for kissing is: Kiss me first, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

Finally, in fairness, dear pets, I have posted the following message on the front door:



1) They live here. You don't.

2) If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That's why they call it 'fur'-niture.

(3) I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

(4) To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted sons/daughters who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly.

Remember, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

(1) eat less

(2) don't ask for money all the time

(3) are easier to train

(4) normally come when called

(5) never ask to drive the car

(6) don't hang out with drug-using people

(7) don't smoke or drink

(8) don't want to wear your clothes

(9) don't have to buy the latest fashions

(10) don't need a gazillion dollars for college and

(11) if they get pregnant, you can sell their children....


  1. It's so funny because it's all true! :)

  2. Wonder if human kids will become obsolete one of these days... BOL

  3. Hi JackDaddy...M.O.M. was sure laughing when she was posting this! We are glad you enjoyed it!
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya and Maggie

    PS..that is just the way we sleep if we can sneak up on the bed!!

  4. Tank... don't think that will happen any time to soon but I am sure our place in homes is here to stay!!
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya and Maggie

  5. I'm still laughing which makes it a bit hard to type, thanks for all the giggles.

  6. We love them and would never ever tire of reading them and agree
    100%. I especially like the
    'they live here, you don't'!!!
    I've heard folks ask Mom if she puts Madi 'up' when there is company. Her reply is NO this is her house and my reply is 'up' isn't a problem for me I'm a feline.
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  7. Truer words cannot have been written! Now, if only dogs and cats could read; especially about kisses and butt sniffs. I don't see why they just can't get that one?
