Muggsy’s Mouthpiece (Things My Cat Thinks You Should Know)

Meet Muggsy aka The Muggaphone

Meet Muggsy aka The Muggaphone

Meet Muggsy, our sixteen-year-old sweet, sage cat. He’s not scared to be vocal when he’s got something on his mind. At these times we call him The Muggaphone, our very own feline megaphone. He’s learned a few things over the years, and on occasion he feels the need to pass his wisdom on in a quest to enlighten his human counterparts on the art of living well. Here are the tidbits he’s asked me to pass along to you all today:

Be persistent. If you don’t get what you want the first time ask again. And again. And again. If you want it don’t let anything stand in your way. Walking across someone’s head at 3:45 am is perfectly acceptable if it helps you to achieve your goal.

Be well-groomed. Bathe often, and moisturize (Muggsy recommends Greek yogurt for smooth, shiny fur). It’s a proven fact that people will want to be around you more and touch you more if you smell good and have soft skin.

Be well-rested. Sleep is the great rejuvenator so do it well and do it often. It’s 100% okay to stop in your tracks and plop down for a power nap…anywhere, at any time.

If you want affection then go get affection. Chances are if you rub up against someone you’re going to get petted. Climb into someone’s lap & start purring…I’m willing to bet they’ll put that smartphone down in a hurry. (A word of caution from Muggsy here- for propriety’s sake do not climb into the lap of your boss, your boss’s spouse, or anyone else with the power to have you fired…or arrested).

Always make time for your loved ones, be they friends, family, or stuffed monkeys. Hang out with those who make you happy, and do the things you love to do.

Treat yourself. Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed. If you want that popsicle you should have that popsicle.

So sayeth the Muggaphone. He hopes you find his advice helpful, and he requests that you refer any feedback to me (because while he’s mastered the art of sprawling across the keyboard he still can’t type, what with the lack of opposable thumbs and all).

  1. Hi Muggsy πŸ˜€ I love your post especially walking over someone’s head at 0345 am. I do that all the time to Daddy ! When I want to get into bed I jump on him, pat his face and huff-and-puff 2 inches from his nose until he lifts the bedding to let me in. After 5 minutes I get hot and get out. Love Sonic (Daddy’s black cat) & a purr for your post. πŸ˜€
