The First Step is Admitting You Have a Problem
Bless his heart, our cat, Mr. B, has had his life upended in the past few months. Last fall we sold the house that he hadn’t left for 14 years since the day we moved in and moved into a basement apartment of a house. Now he hears the neighbors upstairs, Jasmine and Jeromy, walking around and thinks they are coming to get him, then last Saturday, Twyla gave Jasmine’s two preschool nieces magic wands and they were tapping him with them trying to turn him purple. Fortunately the wands were defective and he is still grey.
The only thing that makes his life worth living is treats. He had never had kitty treats, but, when we moved here, we gave them to him to try to comfort him. Now he’s an addict. He wants treats first thing in the morning, the last thing at night, and numerous times during the day. He has the same attitude my cousin Brian has about food, if it tastes good it has to be good for you.
So if any of you know a good twelve step program for cat’s treat addiction, please let us know. Of course the first step is admitting you have a problem and the only problem Mr B thinks he has is he needs to grow a thumb so he can get his own kitty treats.
Always remember kitty treats and laughter matter.
