New Year’s Resolutions for Cats











1. No scratching my human’s favorite leather chair.

2. No scratching the humans, especially the little noisy ones.

3. Leave the goldfish in his bowl.

4. Amass a huge following on Facebook.

5. No hair balls on expensive Persian rugs.


So you see, the cats indeed take the coming of the new year very seriously — that is in between their cat naps, catnip and bowls of cream!

Cassidy and Tabitha, as the oldest and wisest of the tribe here, add their support for more naps but wonder why no one is insisting on second breakfasts.
