You Might Be...

I think cats, and humans, have many aspects to their personalities. Back when we first started blogging I posted this little game and asked our new friends to play a game and finish this sentence “You might be an alley cat if…”

Thinking of it as the feline equivalent of a “You might be a redneck if…” joke. No offense to our alley cat friends of course, as Fin's own feline mother was an alley cat too. Here is an example of ours:

“You might be an alley cat if you think of the whole kitchen floor as your food dish.” or "You might be an alley cat if you only know of Pedigree as a dog food."

I thought about a way to poke fun at our purebred counterparts too. I thought it might be fun to think of that side of our kitties as the feline equivalent of a blond joke, or to indicate how spoiled your kitties might be. Again no offense to our purebred friends, as I think Fin is descended from feline royalty, and honestly who hasn't had a purebred moment. Here is my example:

“How many purebreds does it take to find a patch of sun?”

Answer:  “None, they just require their "people" to buy them a sun lamp.”

Go on, give it a try and leave your versions in the comments section

  14. You might be an alley cat if you eat your food as fast as you can, so that you can "help" your brofur eat his, too. This can be a problem if your brofur is also an alley cat.
