This Father’s Day, I want to send a very special meow out to Steve, my human “dad” (shown here with me in the photo). Here are just a few of the many reasons why I love him - even though I may not always act like it…

  • He gives me attention whenever I want it
  • He gives me food whenever I want it
  • He pets me and makes me purr
  • He gives me 763 cat treats a day
  • He “lets” me claw the arm of the couch and the screen door with only minor protestations
  • He doesn’t care if I leave my cat toys scattered around the house
  • He leaves his shoes out so I can bury my nose deep inside and enjoy the delightfully-pungent aroma of human feet
  • He always makes himself available for quality lap time or chest time, regardless of what he might be doing
  • He lets me sleep on the bed at night and take up most of the room
  • He rescues me when I get into inextricable kitty jams like being trapped inside a closet or stuck up on the roof
  • He helped me write The World Is Your Litter Box… well, he typed it, anyway
  • He gives me unconditional love, no matter how much I might exasperate him

So, thanks Steve… you’re the best human dad a cat could have! And while I’m at it, I want to extend Happy Father’s Day wishes to all the other human dads out there, and to all our kitty dads, wherever (and whoever) they might be.

Sounds like a dad any kitty would like to have. Happy Father's Day to him too.
