Dear Tabby:

Ollie is an orange tabby and I am a tabby tabby. Sometimes mommy leaves stuff on the counter that is perfect for mouseball. Ollie knocks it to the floor and we roll it around the kitchen and living room. We have so much fun. Usually mommy gives us a nasty look and puts the mouseball in a cupboard where we can't play anymore.

But yesterday Mommy came home and found our mouseball had broken and screamed something about priceless crystal sculpture. What happened? Did we do something bad?

Fluffy

Dear Fluffy:

You did nothing wrong. Cats can't be blamed if they find mouseballs to play with. Anything on the floor or that we can knock on the floor is ours to play with. Just like bacon left on the stove is ours to eat. If your mommy didn't want you to play mouseball she shouldn't have left you one.

Don’t understand your people? Email Jenny with any people questions. If I can’t answer there are plenty of fosters here who can help me. For example:

  • How do I get them away from their plates so I can eat the good stuff?
  • How can I get my people to use that little bed they gave me so I can have the good one all to myself?
  • How do I drive away that pesky dog?

Dear Tabby will officially kickoff during the Super Bowl because cats need something to distract them from all that people noise. My mommy and daddy have learned to keep the volume down and never cheer because we startle easily and sink our claws into their toes.

Dear Tabby is a blog for cats to help them understand strange people behavior. For instance, why do we understand people calls but they don’t understand ours?

From kickoff till the end off the game we will follow the Dear Tabby official mouseball game and keep you updated.

Rules of Mouseball

  1. Drop ball onto floor and leave it
  2. Cats may or may not choose to play
  3. Cats who do play may bat the ball wherever
  4. Game ends when cat gets bored
  5. Any cat may resume the game
  6. Players may switch balls at anytime for any reason
  7. If human steps on ball and trips and hurts themselves they still have to feed us and change our litter
  8. (European rules only: cats may not use rear paws or make contact with other cats as if anyone could enforce this)
  9. To score is human. To ignore is cat.
  10. Where’s dinner?

I would like to thank daddy, who translates and types this for me.
