Kitty Sayings #5

My Disciples,

It’s time to let you in on another common kitty saying.  Again, humans use a saying that is pretty much the same as this one, but they always leave off the end.  The saying is:

“Don’t cry over spilt milk, because you will be in the way when I go to lap it up.”

Otis drinking spilt milk.

When milk spills, please don't cry over it. Instead, get out of My way as quickly as possible so I can lap it up.

So please defer to this bit of kitty wisdom if you should happen to have a dairy spill in your general vicinity.  Oh, and please warn us if the milk you have spilled is of the soy or rice variety.  Bleah!  I don’t ever want to make that mistake again…

Kitty Sayings #4

My Disciples,

It’s time to let you all in on another common kitty saying.  Truth be told, humans made up the first part of this saying, we cats just finished it.  Kitty Saying #4 is:

While the cat’s away, the mouse will play …<CRUNCH>… Surprise little mouse!  I wasn’t really away.”

Otis with a mouse toy.

He he he...foolish little mouse.

See?  I think the saying is much more satisfying now that kitties have given it a proper ending.  And if you are a little mouse reading this, I think I will go away for awhile now so feel free to play!  <CRUNCH!>…works every time…

Kitty Sayings #3

My Disciples,

It’s time for another crunchy little bite of kitty wisdom.  Again, I believe there is a human counterpart to this kitty saying, but humans inevitably leave one crucial word out.  Kitty Saying # 3 is:

There is more than one way to skin a cat abuser.

Animal abuse is pure evil. Fortunately, there is more than one way to skin a cat abuser.

As you can tell by the serious look on My face in the photo above, animal abuse is no laughing matter.  In fact, it’s one of the Cult of Otis Nine Deadly Sins.  In all seriousness though, the Cult of Otis would never advocate violence.  Fortunately, there is more than one way to skin a cat abuser, including locking them up so they can’t continue to abuse.

Kitty Sayings #2

My Disciples,

Today I bring you another kibble of feline wisdom.  It may sound familiar, but I think humans typically leave off the last part.  The saying is

Curiosity killed the cat, but only because the cat’s guardians weren’t doing their job.”

 

Curiosity

Yes, we are curious creatures, but it is up to our guardians to give us a safe environment in which to explore our curiosity.

So you should embrace and encourage your kitty’s curious nature, but it is up to you to ensure that kitty’s curiosity does not lead him or her into danger.  Be a true kitty Guardian, and ensure that curiosity never kills the cat.

My Disciples,

You may not be aware of this, but we cats have common sayings just like humans do.  Actually, many of them are even very similar to the human sayings but, in My opinion, they are far wiser.  I have decided to enlighten all of you by sharing some of the most common kitty sayings with you.  Today, I bring you the first of many. It is:

Fool Me once, shame on you.  Fool Me twice, still shame on you.  Stop trying to fool Me and go fix My dinner!

Otis looking serious

Seriously. Go fix My dinner.

So there you have it.  Your first glimpse at the secret wisdom of kitty sayings.  I will be enlightening you with additional sayings periodically, so please do your mental exercises so your minds will be well prepared for these “knowledge bombs”.
