I'm a CEO—Cat Extra-Ordinaire

I'm a CEO—Cat Extra-Ordinaire

It's time once again for me and Mr. Mouse to check out the pamphlet Happy Cat Happy You. These quick tips for building a bond with your feline friend are suggested by the authors at the Catnip Newsletter and compiled for Tufts Institute. This is a series that I'm running which is not sponsored by anyone. I'm just offering my stunning opinions.

I know I've poo-pooed many of these tips but I like Tip #8 a lot and wish TW would implement it. It just may strengthen our bond. Treat your cat like a CEO: cat extra-ordinaire. It states that since I've been loyal (koff koff) to TW for so long, she owes me a daily dose of pampering. They suggest warming a small blankie in the clothes dryer for 5 to 10 minutes and then draping it over me during chilly nights like tonight to help me fall asleep. This can also be used for arthritic cats to improve blood flow and ease muscle aches.

I'm a CEO—Cat Extra-Ordinaire
I wouldn't call this a blanket, Woman. Try again.
I would like to be pampered with a warm blankie so much. Yeah, I know if TW accidentally covers me during the night I will attack her but I think it's worth a try. Heh heh. Our condo is cold and I'm a cat going into her teen years. She can use the one Dragonheart and company gave me in my Secret Paws package. Mmmmm, I can feel it now. I think I'm getting sleepy just thinking about it.

How about it, TW? I know you're still blaming me for putting the hit on you the other morning. I honestly thought the "bed mouse" was attacking you and wanted to protect you. [Ed note: Any other cats out there dive bomb your shoulder when they see a hand move under the cover? CK does. All the cats before her would attack the hand.] That was uncalled for, Woman! Erase that comment! As my furrends know, I'm a brilliantly smart cat. I know where that hand is coming from and believe in getting to the source.

You can read my comments regarding the other tips too. Tip 1. Tip 2. Tip 3. Tip 4. Tip 5. Tip 6. Tip 7.

Any other cats lining up for those heated blankets? What other ways does your human pamper you like a CEO?

I love that heated blanket idea! My human needs to use that one.

Clooney said...

I join you in being a CEO-Cat-Extra-Ordinaire, CK...and I like that warm blankie idea too. Wishing you and your Peeps a Happy New Year and a 2017 filled with peace, joy, health, love & light!

Heated blankets are wonderful, especially in winter. I wouldn't mind being covered by a blanket but I'd also like to have one underneath me and let the heat radiate up.

I'd luv a heated blanket!

Angel, Kirby and Max said...

We like to sleep on Dad's side of the bed cause he turns on his heating blanket. We do not usually like to be covered up

Three Chatty Cats said...

A heated blanket sounds like a great idea. Even though we're in California, I think the kitties would still like it.

Brian said...

You are indeed a most amazing CEO CK!

Dragonheart, Merlin, and Devi said...

We have a heated bed that we LOVE! Devi tends to attack feet when they move under the covers. You definitely deserve pampering, CK.

Patty Woodland said...

The Farm cats have a heated cat pad. That's as good as gets here. Unless you count the WOODSTOVE. They can lie in front of a fire to get warm.

Our only extra heat is lying close to Mom at night!

Kitties Blue said...

C.K., you may not want to be covered, but I bet you would like to lie atop a nice warm blanket. We just lie atop our nice warm humans. MOL! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Flynn said...

A heated blanket sounds good to me. I snuggle into my mum's big furry dressing gown to keep warm.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Why go for the little fry of the hand when you can get a big juicy shoulder? Not to mention that hand was gently used by a cat's fangs the night before. We like fresh, blank space. Oh. And you EXPECT us to go for the hand. PHHT. Every cat worth his fangs will do what you least expect! ~Bear Cat

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Whoa Mudpie would totally go for that! My childhood cat Patch would always lay on top the clean clothes when they'd come out of the dryer especially as he got older.

You are indeed a brilliantly smart cat!

CK.....we are CEO's EVERY DAY!!!! You rule there and you know it! Love, Cody catchatwithcarenandcody

Jean Neilson said...

Aww...my cat warmer is out in the house for the hotel guests. Mom says when it warms up, I'll get it back. Ok...meanwhile I snuggle like crazy in this super cold weather.

Linda Rodgers said...

hmmm...I think TKS would like that heated blankie. For me, Dad has started making me my tent again on the guest bed. And I am totally rocking that tent!

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

You definitely deserve a heated blankie.

The Island Cats said...

All of us here would love a warm blanket but the mom is too lazy to do it for us.

Nellie Kowalik said...

Mes has a heating pad!
And Bed Mice...mes used to really really bites them hard! Mes wanted to dead them!
Kisses

meowmeowmans said...

That heated blanket idea is da bomb, CK! We'll have to try that one out! And TW should do that for you, too, oh Stunning One!

Robin Mudge said...

Ooooh! I warmed blanket sounds like a wonderful way to pamper a kitty. You have great taste, CK. With these low winter temperatures, I know my kitties would love that. Since my kitties will sit in my lap, I might just warm a blanket and sit it across my lap for one of the cats to sit in. :)

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Well, I amnot find of being covered up, but my Human did earn extra points tonight by putting my soft new red blankie on top of my scratcher that is positioned ever so conveniently right in front of the radiator. So that was pretty good. Later, I will go read up up on Tips 1 -7 and see if I can edumacate the Old Bat. I loved your in-furson New Year's greetings XOXOXOXO

Tommie didn't like being under the covers until he was 15 or so. Maybe he felt the cold more as he got older. Only our female cats over the years figured out that the hand was connected to the arm which was the real source of troubles... Now we have Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red - innocent boys who only go after the mysterious bed mouse under the covers. You can't generalize about cats! But that warm blanket sounds very nice!

The Swiss Cats said...

We can say we are pampered almost every day here, we are lucky kitties ! You totally deserve a warmed blanket, CK. Purrs

The Menagerie Mom said...

We love warm blankies around here. They're so cozy and delightfully toasty. You certainly deserve yourself a toasty blankie, CK! (Oh, and tell TW that she's not alone. Around here, Eddy can scrape skin off this mom of hers through even three layers of blanket.)

Brando and Bogart said...

With three kitties reading this post over my shoulder how can I not go and throw their little blankets in the dryer for them...I don't think they'd ever forgive me if I didn't!!!
