Ivy tagged Bendrix for the 7 Useful Things Meme! He was so happy he stayed up late last night and played with his bell toy...at the foot of the bed...
1. I make sure the couch is nice and tenderized by sinking my claws into it & kneading. I want it to be as soft as possible for the humans. Sure they don't sit on the back...but just in case...
2. I never let the woman be late for work. The man is on his own, but the woman feeds me my stinky goodness breakfast and I can't have that be late.
3. I make sure that the kitchen table is checked for bugs (and stray crumbs that might bring bugs) daily, even if it means I get squirted.
4. I keep the beans from eating to much junk food by sticking my head in the bag or snack bowl and licking the salt of the chips/pretzles and eating any cheezy snacks available.
5. I keep the man company when he works from home by walking across his keybord so the excel spreadsheet adds up funky numbers. hey man, just use ctrl Z. I make sure he always double checks his work.
6. I also make sure the beans gets their daily exercise by chasing me off the piano, entertainment center, kitchen table, mom's dresser and away from the back of the couch when I scratch. They need it.
7. I keep watch to make sure those evil squirrels don't come in the house to get the humans. I got a good thing here, I won't let any furry rat take over my domain.
8. I help Hendrix get stuff he didn't even know he wanted. Since I walked across the woman's craft table so much (to get to the window) he got a new window seat. I demanded so loudly, he got extra stinky yesterday. I ignored the scratching post in its new spot by the window so long, we got a window box next to it to help us jump up.
9. I keep the woman warm at night by laying RIGHT ON HER CHEST. The key to this is to lay just to the right or left so she has to hold me up with one arm. Since she can still breathe won't move and disturb me.
10. I make sure the plants in the house can stand up to anything. I chew them and whap them and dig in the dirt. These sturdy plants (mommy makes sure nothing inside is toxic) can stand up to any visiting sticky little bean if they can stand up to me!
Now you may ask, why did I do 10 instead of 7? Well, I like breaking the rules and I am VERY helpful.
