While on a doggy/Bengal outing recently with my puppy friend Sophie her Human told my Papa a old story which goes like this;
A dog thinks. “The people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with food and a nice place to live and take care of me. They must be God’s”…While A cat thinks. “The humans I live with feed me, love me, provide me with food, a house, play with me and take care of me; I must be a God!”
As all Beautiful Fierce Felines know this is a truth that has never been debunked. But it is not all as glamorous as it seems. As with part 1 of this post titled How to Help Your Human this part 2 shows that we still have to take care of our humans and it is not an easy job.
As I was thinking about this Sophie my dog friend was trying to beat me in a race at the farmers market but I came out ahead by a whisker. “Hurry papa!” I meow.
I’ll list some examples below to show some helpful things we can do to help our humans so their time can be freed up to pamper us more.
When our Humans drive and we are not sleeping it is very important to help them with directions. I know we love our humans but we always have to have a watchful eye. Even if you’re not paying attention when you hear the GPS say “recalculating!” It’s time to tell your Human MEOW! We are lost! And we are low on food!!!!!
Sometimes it’s had to look Regal in the many pictures our humans take. But just put up with it for a little bit and you can always reward them later with a nice love kiss with your teeth. “That finger that just took this picture is going to get a nice little bite !” I meow.
I have a Papa that takes me so many places. Another thing I like to do for my human when we are out is to make sure those funny drinks he orders are safe.The best way I like to do this is to either stick my nose in it or if you can’t stick your nose in it then make sure some fur flies into the drink.
We can also help are humans by teaching them new games. Here I’m teaching my papa how to play gin rummy. “I win papa.” I meow. He says “no you didn’t”. I reply with a loud meow/growl “I WON!” And of course I was right I did win!
Always help your human when they shop. “Get the chicken seasoning papa” I meow.
Our humans will always bring us home new toys. Of course as any cat knows all we want are brand-new boxes, bags, or strings. Still we must pretend to show an interest in the toys they bring us so they will feel like their time and energy was spent well. “Yes I love it Papa. Yawn! Don’t you see me playing with it?” I meow.
When putting away items like paper towels or toilet paper organization is the key to fitting in as many items as you can in a small storage area. I like to help my papa out with this as much as I can. “It’s full papa no more room in here!” I meow.
