Thursday Thirteen

Tybalt tagged Captain Jack and Bendrix tagged Dante and Fagin for the 7 Useful Things Meme. Since we were all tagged, we decided to modify it to a 13 Useful Things Meme and answer it together!

1. Captain Jack - I keep an eye on the birds that live outside to make sure that they do not suddenly go insane and start attacking the house and my beans like the birds in that Hitchcock movie did. I stare at the birds and even chitter at them to threaten them everytime I see them.

2. Dante - I guard the kitchen against all invaders by lying across the entrance to the room. No one will get past me and steal food without my knowing about it!

3. Fagin - I am Mommy and Daddy's alarm clock. When I was a little kitten and was locked into my room at night, I meowed and meowed every morning when it was time for Mommy to get up so she did not oversleep. Now that I am bigger and am not locked up at night, I curl up under Mommy's chin and purr loudly to make sure she does not oversleep. I even attack her hair if she does not pay attention to me! I start this at 3am so that there is no way that she will be late!!

4. Captain Jack - When Mommy comes downstairs in the morning, and while she is making her coffee, I make sure to jump up on the counter and meow loudly at her over and over again. She thinks I do this because I want Temptations (and I do) but I really do it to make sure she stays awake and does not fall back asleep. I would not want her to be late to day hunting!

5. Dante - I keep the dogs in line and make sure that they behave. I do this by growling, hissing and whapping them lots. The dogs need lots of discipline and I take care of this for my beans.

6. Fagin - I make Mommy and Daddy laugh lots. I do not know why. All I am doing to playing and attacking but they seem to find it funny!

7. Captain Jack - I keep the kitten in line by growling, hissing, and whapping him. Someone needs too - Fagin is a menance!

8. Dante - I help Daddy take his medicine at night. I jump up on the counter and watch him. When he is done, to reward him I climb up in his arms and let him carry me to bed.

9. Fagin - I help Dante to get his exercise by attacking him and making him play with me. Its fun!!

10. Captain Jack - I keep Mommy's fet warm by lying on them! This way she will not catch a cold!

11. Dante - I keep Mommy's head warm by wrapping around it like a scarf and purring. This way she will not catch a cold either!!

12. Fagin - I am cute.

13. Captain Jack, Dante, and Fagin - We make Mommy and Daddy happy and love them as they love us. It's been proven that people with animals live longer and are healthier. We love and we are loved. Not a bad deal at all!

That's a terrific list! :) You are all wonderful kitties, and you are all very helpful! :) Fagin, we are our dad's alarm clock, but we don't start quite as early as you. ;)

Those ARE very useful things! I hope our beans realize just how useful we are!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You are very useful. I know how important it is to keep those dogs in line!

Daisy said...

I think number 13 is the most important one of all!

The Crew said...

Guys, you're so helpful! I find a good way to make Mom get up is to hook a claw in her nose. Try works every time!


Tybalt said...

Great job, guys! You are all very useful, indeed!

My Sweet Sir Dante,
I would love to come cuddle with you and watch the rain come down - I'll be right over. And maybe later we'll head over to the M-Cats for Mr. Tigger's party?!

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

Such useful kitties you are! Momma doesn't even need her alarm clock any more. I repeatedly tap her on the shoulder, Empress start singing and Renna jumps up and down on her and pulls her hair at 6 am.

How does your mommy sleep? My mommy complains about just me!
I think you are all very helpful. Your beans certainly couldn't function without you all!!
