Open Letter to Our Humans

To Whom it May Concern:

I am speaking on behalf of myself and my colleagues, from this point forward referred to as "we," "us," "our," and/or "the Cats."

We would like to submit a formal protest to the use of the upstairs bath tub for human body cleansing. It is most clearly a secondary litter box.

To wit, we would require that Our Humans cease and desist the allowance of any water into the tub as we do not like to get our feet wet.

We would also like to state that filling the tub with litter is not necessary - we graciously acknowledge that there are three or four other litter boxes that our humans keep filled, and in these hard economic times we recognize the burden that filling an entire bath with litter might become. Besides, we are obviously fine to use the tub as is. The tilt of the tub creates a draining system that is quite sufficient; we only request that our humans remove solid waste promptly and keep the tub as clean and welcoming as possible.

For example, when one of our humans spent approximately twenty minutes yesterday scrubing out the tub with a mild bleach abrasive and a scrub pad, that created the perfect environment for those of us with higher standards to use the tub for its intended purpose, i.e. a litter box, at some point during the night or early this morning while our humans were asleep. We would very much like for this standard to be maintained.

We also would like to claim our right to continue to make use of the carpet at whim.


Guess Who Shit in the Tub
