One book of cat humor I love is The Devious Book for Cats: A Parody. The book contains many chapters offering advice to cats on managing their lives and those of their humans. With summer just around the corner, so I thought it timely to share some advice from The Devious Book for Cats that may be starting their vacation planning. Here are tips your cat should consider:
- Visit a natural wonder. Fortunately, cats don’t have to travel far to observe natural wonders. There’s one as close as the nearest bathroom. Toilets offer a wonderful waterfall effect just by climbing to the edge and using a paw to push the lever. Care should be taken not to fall in while observing the wonder that is the toilet flushing. The beautiful thing about it is that it can be observed thousands of times!
- Go to the beach. If the resident human is into crafts, it’s possible there is a sand garden complete with seashells and/or starfish in it. If so, carefully tip over the sand garden so the sand spreads nicely across the floor. It’s best if the spot is sunny so the sand will get warm.
- Enjoy fancy meals. With the resident humans gone, there will be a guest server providing meals. It’s best to treat the guest server well so they will provide great meals. Often, the guest server will provide super yummy meals that aren’t on the menu when resident humans are around. Make sure to tip generously to keep the great service coming.
- Catch up on reading. Cats and books have been associated for a long time, and vacation is a great time to catch up on reading. If a beach was created as described above, that makes a perfect place to read. Otherwise, pick a comfortable spot, grab a book and relax!
