My sister-in-law also sent me a series of look-alike photos of kittens and puppies with bunnies - these are great!

Job Duties for Cats

| No Comments


My sister-in-law sent this to me last month! Hysterical!

Job Duties For Cats

BATHROOMS - Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything. Just sit & stare.

DOORS - Do not allow any closed doors...in any room. To get the door opened, stand on hind legs and hammer with forepaws. Once door is opened, it's not necessary to use it. After you have ordered an outside door opened, stand half way in & out & think about several things. This is particularly important during very cold weather, rain, snow or mosquito season.

CHAIRS AND RUGS - If you have to throw up, get to a chair quickly. If you cannot manage in time, get to an Oriental rug. If there is no Oriental rug, shag is good. When throwing up on the carpet, make sure you back up so it's as long as a human's bare foot.

HAMPERING - If one of your humans is engaged in any activity and the other is idle, stay with the busy one. This is called helping, also known as hampering. Following are the rules for hampering:

  1. When supervising cooking, sit just behind the left heel of the cook. You cannot be seen and thereby stand a better chance of being stepped on and then picked up and comforted.
  2. For book readers, get in close under the chin, between eyes and book--unless you can lie across the book itself.
  3. When human is working at computer, jump up on desk, walk across keyboard, bat at mouse pointer on screen, and then lay in human's lap across arms, hampering typing in progress.

WALKING - As often as possible, dart quickly & as close as possible in front of the human...especially on stairs, when they have something in their arms, in the dark, & when they first get up in the morning. This will help their coordination skills.

BEDTIME - Always sleep on the human at night so he/she cannot move around

LITTERBOX - When using the litter box, be sure to kick as much litter out of the box as possible. Humans love the feel of kitty litter between their toes.

HIDING - Every now and then, hide in a place where the humans cannot find you and DO NOT come out for three or four hours under any circumstances. This will cause the humans to panic (which they love) thinking that you have run away or are lost. Once you do come out, be nonchalant. The humans will cover you with love and kisses...and you probably will get a treat.

How Will You Die? quiz

ripgravestone.gif
You scored as Natural Causes. Your death will be by natural causes, though not by any disease, because that is another option on this test. You will probably just silently pass away in the night from old age, and people you love won't realize until the next morning, when you are all purple and cold and icky. So be happy, you won't be murdered.

Talent, Lifer, or Mandarin?

| 1 Comment


For the most part, I agree with this summary. Hmmm, now if I only knew what "Mandarin" referred to... Ah, dictionary.com includes this definition: "A member of an elite group, especially a person having influence or high status in intellectual or cultural circles."

I'm a Mandarin!

You're an intellectual, and you've worked hard to get where you are now. You're a strong believer in education, and you think many of the world's problems could be solved if people were more informed and more rational. You have no tolerance for sloppy or lazy thinking. It frustrates you when people who are ignorant or dishonest rise to positions of power. You believe that people can make a difference in the world, and you're determined to try.

Talent: 36%
Lifer: 59%
Mandarin: 62%

Take the Talent, Lifer, or Mandarin quiz.

16819 people have taken the Are You a Talent, a Lifer, or a Mandarin? (Version 2.0) personality test. Here are the results so far:

Talents: 8516 (51%)
Lifers: 5704 (34%)
Mandarins: 2599 (15%)

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

| No Comments


This surprises me... While I do consider myself independent, "dominant" and "alpha dog" aren't usually how I describe myself.

Your Birthdate: October 10

Independent and dominant, you tend to be the alpha dog in most situations. You're very confident, and hardly anything ever shakes you. Mundane tasks tend to drain you - you prefer to be making great plans. You are quite original. When people don't "get" you, it bothers you a lot.

Your strength: Your ability to gain respect.
Your weakness: Caring too much what others think.
Your power color: Orange-red.
Your power symbol: Letter X.
Your power month: October.

What Kind of Coffee Are You?

Wouldn't you know it! Mocha Frappuccinos are my favorite!

You Are a Frappaccino

youareafrappaccino.jpg
At your best, you are: fun loving, sweet, and modern.

At your worst, you are: childish and over indulgent.

You drink coffee when: you're craving something sweet.

Your caffeine addiction level: low.
