Duties as Assigned

Each day when my parents leave the house they assign me a duty, like these:

  • Be a good kitty
  • Keep Mom safe
  • Watch over your Dad
Well I'm no slacker, so I'm right on them. I take on each assignment with great diligence, but would it kill them to give me something like these to accomplish?

  • Take lots of naps
  • Take a lick bath
  • Enjoy an extra treat

  1. If humans could get on the same pages as us...ALL would be right.

  2. You're right. Humans usually have their priorities mixed up.

  3. Humans are silly...at our house Grete dog is usually instructed to "babysit". Really?

    If Grete goes with mom and dad, presumably to "babysit" them...then my momma Ellie is put "in charge".

  5. Mummy always tells us "no parties". We don't listen to her.

  6. The latter are taken for granted by the humans.

    I don't get assigned duties as SS knows I wouldn't pay any attention to her commands - I just do what I feel like.

  13. Well they can't expect you to take on those duties without you receiving some consideration (ie extra treat) for your efforts, otherwise you don't have a contract and you don't have to do the assigned duties.

  14. We think you should lots of extra treats for all the hard work you have to do.

  15. We agree, Fin! A good worker needs incentive.

  16. Your list is pretty good, Fin, we hope our Mommy takes it into consideration. She usually tells us to have a good day, so we guess that's better than a lot of bad chores...

    Purrs and hugs,

  17. My Dad always tells me to "be good" too. Really, I mean, that's completely unnecessary...I'm always good!

  18. The secret of keeping an employee happy is assigning a fun task along with a more difficult task!

  19. Oh, we do the same thing when we leave - we will tell them "your in charge of watching the couch" or something like that. It usually depends which cat it is and where they are located.

  20. You have a very valid protest dear Fin!
