Just Last Caturday,

the Beauteous Raven from Indulged Furries posed the following question:

"I wonder though, are you supposed to be on the table?"

It has taken me three days to stop laughing long enough to compose my reply, a memorable quote from many years ago, first spoken by a man who is now my idol:

I do what I want
When I want
And nobody tells me NO.  
                    ~J.L. 1957

Catio Tales said...

Yes indeed! There is no control over us. What is this word 'no' ?

Angel Prancer Pie said...

**Falls on back, laughing riotously** Supposed to be on the table. You're killing us here, Spitster.

The Farm cats are not allowed on the table.....

What is this word, "allowed," of which Raven speaks?

Lone Star Cats said...

MOL, I agree wif dat!

Megan said...

I thought that went without saying for cats, Spitty. It makes me a little worried about Raven's situation - perhaps her human does say 'no'? Dearie, dearie, dearie. Should you mount a rescue mission or would finding a re-training camp for her human be the better way forward?

Paws up, Spitty! You know who the boss is around there.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Of course Spitty belongs on the table! And anywhere else his kingly self wants to be! Love you Spitty!

Star says: Even when humans ban us from tables, we still go there, just when they arent looking! I've missed you, Spitty dear! how about a quick cuddle and ear lickies today? Purrrrrrrrr

Katie Isabella said...

I say let's GO to visit Prancer Pie's home and get to know the news family members! Your Ferrari or mine?xxooxx

Katie Isabella said...

Oh and absolutely that was a corker about being on the table. The quote should be on a sign that is hung over every doorway in America that has a cat in charge. What a larf. Should you be on the table. HA! (no offense to Raven...just having fun).

Spitty that's my motto too............we must be soul brothers.........

Hugs, Sam

Brian said...

That works for me too Spitty!

Eastside Cats said...

No truer words were ever spoken by a cat!

Sasha said...

JUst what I think. But I get trouble in the sink, for some reason.

I'm green with envy, I would like to dance on the table too... butt to watch you, doing what you want is cool too :o)

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

You tell her Spitty!!!!! Love, Cody

Pat Hatt said...

haha we agree fully with that quote

meowmeowmans said...

Um, Spitty, we kind of hate to ask, but what is the meaning of "allowed?" We don't know that word here...

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

And quite right too.

Misaki @ misadventuresofMisaki said...

Good to hear it Spitty!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

YES! We second that quote!

CATachresis said...

Buddy, I'm gonna have to look up "supposed to be". This might indicate some kind of acquiescence!!!!

BTW I've put a post about our little weekend jaunt with the cat scouts. I left out the bit about the incident with the ... you know ...... Mississippi mud cake incident!!

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

Really? The table is the only place we can't go. Oh, and the sideboy.

Who's JL? I don't know any cat with those initials.

Kitties Blue said...

Isn't that what all cats do. We think Raven would know that! She must be having her creativity and imagination stifled. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

The Indulged Furries said...

Spitty, I'm happy to have made you laugh. I had no idea my innocent question would incite such a lively discussion. I wish no one ever told me know, but those aren't the rules in my house. I wrote an explanation on my bloggy. Maybe I need help renegotiating my residency contract. Oh, and thanks for saying I'm Beauteous..

The Island Cats said...

MOL! We feel the same way, Spitty. No one stops us from doing what we want to do.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

We are always allowed on tables. Kitchen counters seem to be different things though.

Brian said...

The big day is today Spitty!

Marty the Manx said...

Love the quote Spitty! "Allowed" isn't in our vocabulary either. Mom says you know what you are in for when you sign up for pet ownership. Hair everywhere and kitties in high places!
(That is what clorox wipes are for when I want to use my table and counter for food anyway Spitty :) The Mom)
