Smile Pet owners

Owners? Not sure who owns whom, but here are some interesting points I think that they should be made aware of:

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - pet nose height.Dear Dogs and Cats:
The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The
other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw
print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it
becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing
in the slightest.
The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating
me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I
fall faster than you can run.
I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry
about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure
your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they
sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other
stretched out to the fullest extent possible I also know that sticking
tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to
maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.


For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom. If by some
miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not
necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw
under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the
same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years
--canine or feline attendance is not required.


The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt.
I cannot stress this enough!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our
front door:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:
1. They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture.
That's why they call it "fur"niture.
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, they are an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter
who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly

Beautiful! NUMBER 3 is the MOST important one to me. The others of course all apply too. Thanks for sharing. Have to have something in writing in order to make people understand how we feel! Perfect.
