National Answer Your Cat’s Question Day

It’s the day your cat has been waiting for all year… no, not her birthday. January 22nd was National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day! If you’ve ever owned a cat, you know they make no reservations about sharing their opinions in various ways, but have you ever wondered what they might be curious about? We have 5 guesses. These are the questions we think our cats are dying to ask, and the answers we’d give them.

  1. Why do you insist upon taking all of my fun toys away? You know I love hair ties, makeup brushes, empty boxes, toilet paper tubes, dust bunnies, and shredded paper more than I love any of those squeaky mouse toys you bought me. 

We intentionally brought home toys created specifically for cats, thinking you would enjoy them. You can’t play with hair ties because they can be dangerous- especially if you ingest them. Maybe we can relax a little on our toilet paper tube and empty box policy, though, since you really do love them and they’re not harmful to you.

  1. Why do you make that face when I throw up on the rug? You know I have hairballs.

Yes, I do know that you have hairballs. It’s still not my favorite thing to find first thing in the morning, though. Maybe this year we can look into trying one of these to help promote proper digestion.

  1. What is that magical machine in the kitchen that I love so much? Every time I hear its mesmerizing lull, I can’t help but be drawn in.

That, dear cat, is the can opener. We use it to open cans of food, yes, including tuna.

  1. Why do you get so mad when I sit on the table or countertop? This is my home, too, and I demand to have access to all of it.

Well, I don’t want you on the countertops or tables because the food we keep there is human food, and can potentially be dangerous for you to eat. Also, I hate to bring it up, but your feet carry germs from all the places you’ve been, and we really don’t want to ingest those, either.

  1. Do I really have to go to the vet? You know I prefer to stay home where it’s nice and cozy and I make all the rules.

I know, but it’s for your own good. Although some of your vaccines can last up to 3 years, you still need to see the vet regularly to observe any changes in your health.

What do you think your cat would ask if he could? Take some time to answer your cat’s questions on National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day, and let us know how it  goes here.
