Some human misbehavior has come to my attention. Since humans are fond of the saying, “ignorance of the law is no excuse,” they should know that the same goes for Cat Rules. But just to make things perfectly clear, I will post some of the rules that have recently been broken. I hope this clarifies any misunderstanding.
Rule #32: Humans rub feline bellies at their own discretion; cats are not responsible for the results.
Rule #47: Anything left on the kitchen counter unattended automatically belongs to any and all resident cats.
Rule #75: Cats must always test the laundry before it is put away; they are the only ones who are qualified to judge whether it has been properly washed and dried.
Rule #158: If a cat has deemed a particular box to be a suitable toy, the box must not be discarded under any circumstances unless replaced by a box of equal or greater value.
Rule #377: If a human makes a tuna melt sandwich before feeding the cats, said cats are entitled to the tuna melt sandwich.
Rule #394: Cats are allowed to gnaw on human ears, but it is never permissible for a human to gnaw on a cat’s ears.
Rule #1561: It is permissible for a cat to accept a bribe. It is not permissible for the human to expect any results from said bribe.

Pawsome rules Sparkle! =^..^= mew!

Fui, Suey and Ronny says
Sparkle, can you sit your mum down for a talk? There is a lot she could learn from you!
Margaret (Nanny Goats) says
Rule 1561??? Jeez, how many rules do you cats have?
Also – I was surprised the other day when a friend’s cat let me rub his belly because every cat I grew up with hated it. And would chomp on your arm to let you know it.
Those are pawsome rules and furry true! We especially like #75 when the laundry is nice and warm!
Man, so true!! Daddy is always forgetting Rule #47 and then gets surprised when the ham/chicken/prawns are not there when he gets back…
Cat Lady Diary says

Thank you for clearing that up.
Roni The Brat says
Dear Sparkle Cat, great Rules! It’s amazing, isn’t it the things you have to spell out for humans?!!?!
Catline Crew says

Glogirly & Katie says
Great rules to live by… Glogirly, my girl, could stand to review a number of them! Particularly #1561. I’d really love to post these and the 1554 other rules somewhere in the house, but I don’t like tape.
Those are great rules. We certainly like them all and we are going to print them up and post them where our humans can be sure to read them everyday. Thanks for drawing up that list.
Melvin and Zoey at Mouchois says
I think my human needs to work on listening to rule #32, rule #47 doesn’t apply in our house because Zoey doesn’t quite realize that she can jump and I’m too squatty to jump up, and rule #377 is my life motto.
