Shrimp’s rules fur the discerning kat 

Published April 15, 2015 by hairballexpress

Greetings Furiends and fellow felines! 

  Well it’s already that time of year again; 

You know – spring – when litter after litter of cute, fuzzy kittens are born and immediately look to me (the expurrt) – fur advice in how to be a respectable kat.

So I’m going to share ten of the most important rules that any serious kitten must remember if it wants to grow up to be a gorgeous, loveable, respectable kat like me. 

1.) Always remember dogs are idiots. 


2.) Deny everything!

3.) Never judge a meal by is cover. 


 4.) NEVER bite the fireman – (unless he’s saving the dog). 


5.) Show the humans how yoga’s done.


6.)  Never wait fur those moron humans to do fur you what you can do fur yourself.


7.)  DON’T imitate the humans- (dude –  you could freeze that way)!


8.) ALWAYS remember to shed on the fresh laundry. This is especially important if you have long fur, or if the laundry is dark.

⭐ (Bonus points if it’s a work uniform or something just purrchased). ⭐


9.) NEVER let the Creatures “play doctor” with you! 


10.) Be sure your diet includes lots of fish.


Now that’s not nearly all the rules of respectable kathood, but that’s a good start fur all you cute little Fuzzballs.

Fur now, go pounce on some nip, take a nap, and stay tuned fur part two of Shrimp’s kat rules fur the discerning kat!

The Kat Behavior Manual (“Kat Rule Book”)

Published January 19, 2014 by hairballexpress


Recently a few of my readers have written in with different questions about kat behavior. Tonight I’ll answer some of those questions.

Fur example:


★ “Why does (my) kat curl up in the bathroom sink and make me have to go to the other bathroom to wash my hands”?

→ (the short answer): because he’s smart.

→ In other words, he’s studied (and mastered) the techniques outlined in the Kat Behavior Manual (“Kat Rule Book”)….

Rule # 2 – watch your human carefully and learn his habits so you can know what he will do next;  then firmly plant yourself in a spot where he can’t possibly miss you. Once there, do not move until he opens a can of food, or gives you another acceptable offering.


★ “Why is it that when I spend money buying expensive toys and Gifts fur my kat, he will always ignore the gift, and play with the boxes, wrappings, and bows? ”

Rule # 143 – NEVER readily accept your humans’ gifts. This makes you appear to be easily pleased (you are NOT A DOG)! 

INSTEAD, act as unimpressed as possible with your Gifts, deliberately choosing to play with the package and wrappings it came in. This will lead to the human spending more and more money on you in an effort to win your approval.


One of the best demonstrations of executing Rule# 4

★ “Why does my kat always have to take over my computer when I need to use it?”

Rule # 4 – Similar to Rule # 2, this rule also requires anticipating what your human will do next, and being 4 paws ahead of him.

When you see your human about to use the computer, or read a book, sew, draw, or anything that requires the use of a surface you can lay on, ALWAYS lay on the offending object immediately.

This serves the purpose of reminding the idiot that YOU are his first and ONLY priority!


★ “Why are kats always so jealous?”

Rule # 1 – the MOST IMPORTANT RULE OF ALL: its all about the kat and ONLY the kat!

NEVER tolerate any competition fur your humans’  time and affection! As the ruler of the house, you are the boss! Anything that steals time and affection from you has to go!

■ See, humans? Your kats are just following the rules!

I hadn’t been able to post about it till now, because the human has been sick, and I’ve had my paws full trying to take care of the spoiled brat.

Meanwhile, another great furiend & blogger over at Purrfect Kitties
Also presented the award to me the next day! (SUPER TRILLS)!!!!  This is another Pawsome blog about all things kat!
