The furry spawn of satan

Dear Fur,

I understand that my pill box looks like a cute cat toy to you but it is not. As such, please discontinue from knocking it off my desk. I did not appreciate returning from a day of snowboarding yesterday and finding the pill box knocked to the floor, open, with one pill remaining. I had no idea where the other eight happy pills had gone to, and initially worried that you had eaten them. Then I looked around the floor.

Appreciate that although it may be a fun game for you to bat the little white pills all over the hardwood floor, it is not fun for me to have to crawl around picking them up. This was made even more unpleasant due to the fact that both knees were bruised, scratched, and swollen from falling on icy hills. It was especially not fun hunting for the pills given that I hadn't swept that floor in ages, and might I just mention that although it is a highlight of yours to dig so violently in your litter box that piles of cat litter scatter in the vicinity, having to rescue one of the pills from one such pile was not appealing to me?

I now have all the pills back in the box and please leave them there. Content yourself to playing with your scratching post, walking on my head in the morning, and terrorizing Tasha. And never forget, as the human in this house, I'm the one who is able to work the can opener.

You need me. I need my happy pills.

Much love.

Thank God my cats like the plastic piece from the milk carton and not that. I bet you got to the one near the cat near the box and debated and debated. I would have done the same thing (kept it).

I hope you tossed the pill amongst the litter. Shudder.

LOL Are our cats related?!

Mine likes to dig in the garbage and he is particularly fond of pulling out Atkins Bar Wrappers and then playing floor hockey with them all night.

Torn - You obviously under-estimate the power of happy pills.

Maybe you can put the pill box in a drawer out of the cat's reach, or just buy like those boxes to store CDs and put your pill box in that. The cat won't be able to see it.

Maybe the cat thought you would like a little scavenger/hunt workout, as a change of pace from the snowboarding.

I need happy pills. I'll even take the ones that may have touched cat liter.

My friend Tara's cat is obsessed with hair elastics. When I cat-sat her over the summer and over the holidays she would find every one of my hair elastics and then play with them all night. Then I would find them piled in her food dish in the morning.

OK---my word verification is "refur." Really!!!
