He Said

Gizmo and Scratchy on the back of the couchThere’s something not fair around here.

Totally not fair.

Those cats I live with are always allowed on the furniture.

Anytime and anywhere.

But if I try to get on the furniture – the nice, comfy furniture – I get yelled at and told to get down.

Is that unfair, or what?


Sometimes I sneak onto the furniture when my person isn’t looking.

But the problem is that the furniture is so comfy that I don’t always wake up when my person comes near.

It’s really embarrassing when I get kicked off the furniture and the cats get to stay.

I feel like a second class citizen around here.

And we all know that dogs rule over cats.

We all know that, right?

I didn’t hear you.

Well, never mind.

Because I figured out a way to get past the problem.

I found myself an ally.

Person, don’t even try to kick me off.

He said I could.

Don’t Tell Bongo

Gizmo sitting up on the couchThis is Gizmo here.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to sneak on the computer when Bongo wasn’t looking.

And it’s about time I updated you on what’s going on around here.

You see, I’ve been elevated to the same status as the people.

Or maybe even a little higher.




Since I’m allowed on the couch like the people here, I thought maybe I should sit on the couch the same way they do.

Bongo is relegated to the floor, or dog jail, so I know my status here is way above his.

I don’t even know what a floor dog needs a blog for.

I may have to take it over from him permanently.

Oh wait! Here comes Bongo.

I don’t want Bongo to find out what I’m up to.

This is Gizmo signing off now.


Yes, Bongo. I love you too.

Oh, the things a cat has to put up with when he’s trying to pull something over on a dog.

Cat Conspiracy

Bongo and two cats on the couch on the other side of the roomI’m trying to ignore what’s going on behind me, but it doesn’t look good.

Most of the time Gizmo and Scratchy are hanging out in different rooms of the house.

I hardly ever see them together except when my person feeds them.

And then I’m not paying much attention because I’m so busy eating.

But I’m getting really concerned right now.

It looks like a cat conspiracy to me.





Gizmo and Scratchy on the back of the futon

They never hang out on the same couch together.

They must be planning something.

I wonder how I can get them to move without getting any claws in my face.

Never mind.

Hey person, can you throw the ball again?

Bongo behind couches with a tennis ballSometimes I miss when I’m trying to catch the ball. The other day it bounced off my nose and landed right next to Scratchy. And Scratchy wouldn’t throw the ball back to me. I’ve really got to train that cat better.

This time the ball bounced off my nose and landed in the corner. There used to be enough room between the couches for me to squeeze through, but for some reason that space disappeared. I managed to get behind those couches though and retrieve my ball.

But now I have another problem.


Bongo stuck behind the couches

I got my ball out, but now how do I get out?

There must be a way to get from here to there.

That floor looks so close – and yet so far away.

It can’t be that hard. I manage to get over the fence in the backyard. This would be so much easier except I don’t have room to get a running jump.

Oh wait, this will work.

And you thought I’d never make it, didn’t you?

Happy Festival of Sleep Day

Bongo SleepingToday is Festival of Sleep Day. This day happens January 3rd every year and it’s creating quite a dilemma for me.

I want to make sure I do it right, and that means I have to find just the right place to sleep.





Bongo on the bed

The most obvious place would be my person’s bed. But for some reason unknown to me I get kicked off her bed anytime she finds me there. I guess I won’t get much sleep on the bed today.

Bongo on the Couch

The couch would be another great place to sleep, but it seems to have the same problem as the bed. I know some of my friends are allowed on couches. I’d appreciate any helpful hints on how you convinced your people to let you do this.

Living Room Sleeping

I could sleep in the living room – right in the middle of everything, so my people will have to walk around me all the time.

Bongo and Scratchy on the floor

But then Scratchy might come and hang out next to me.

Summer Sleeping Spot

The bathroom is a nice, out of the way place. No one bothers me in there – well, not very often that is. And the tiles are nice and cool. They feel good when it’s hot. Oh, wait. This is January. Cool tiles are not good now..

Bongo in the sunny spot with Scratchy behind him

That settles it. I’m sleeping in the sunny spot.

It’s so Comfy

Bongo on the CouchI’m not allowed on the couches around here and it’s totally not fair. My people get to sit on those nice comfy couches – they can even curl up on them if they want to, and wrap themselves in nice, toasty blankets. What makes it even worse is that Scratchy is allowed to get on the couch any time he wants. As a matter of fact, Scratchy is allowed on all the furniture – the couches, the chairs, and even the beds.

Scratchy is even allowed on the countertops. Well, at least the one where his food is. I don’t know why my people don’t feed him on the floor. They feed me there.

I’m totally relegated to the floors. The hard, cold floors.

Person, you don’t have to ruin my story. I know there’s carpet on the floors and I have a bed I can lay on. I’m trying to make everyone feel sorry for me.

Anyway, I’d like my turn on the couch too but I have to wait until my people leave the house to get my chance. When I hear a car in the driveway I quickly get up and head to the door to greet my people. That way they aren’t suspicious at all.

Today I blew it though. I don’t know what happened. I must have really been sleeping soundly. I didn’t hear a thing – and then, there she was. My person had come in the door.

Oops! — I’m in trouble now!
