Sgt Stripes here. My sisters and I are not happy cats. The two small humans are visiting, and we are not impressed.
Kommando: They arrived Thursday. And they have got so much stuff. It’s everywhere.
Snoops: Yeah. And there isn’t anything good this time. Apparently they’re too big for carriers and special chairs.
Kommando: But they are really loud.
Snoops: They smell kinda weird. And the stuff they drink smells kinda weird too.
Sgt Stripes: They sleep upstairs with me. It takes a long time for them to go to sleep. And they make a LOT of noise.
Kommando: They tried to eat our food. Mom forgot to take our kibble off the floor, and they ate it when she wasn’t looking.
Sgt Stripes: At least you got food. Mom was so tired last night that she forgot to feed me. It was horrible.
Snoops: You should have told her.
Sgt Stripes: I tried. I couldn’t get her or my human brother to wake up. I even tried nibbling on her arm. I thought I was going to starve.
Kommando: Did she finally remember?
Sgt Stripes: Not really. After she fed you guys Friday morning and came back upstairs, I cried and led her to my room. She finally got the message. I think it’s my worst night since I’ve been here.
Snoops: That is awful. She came down early to feed us so the little humans couldn’t get into our food.
Sgt Stripes: It’s a good thing she did. By the time she got back upstairs, the little one was crying. She put him on her bed. In my place!!
Snoops: You lost your spot?
Sgt Stripes: I jumped up on the bed after I ate like I always do when Mom’s home, and he was there! I had to get back down. I think he wanted to touch me.
Kommando: Yep. That’s exactly the same thing that happened to me later. I went to jump up in Mom’s lap, and the other one was there. It’s terrible!
Snoops: They have cats at their house, so they think they can touch us. We need to stay out of the way. No sticky fingers in my beautiful fur.
Kommando: I hope they’re not moving in.
Sgt Stripes: I heard Mom say it’s for three nights.
Kommando: Hmm. Nobody asked us.
Snoops: We better be getting lots of treats at the end of this.
