Frankly Freddie – I need your help

I’m trying to be very supportive, however, I think my human is sniffing catnip.

I was really glad she and her friend Peggy Arndt got together because Peggy gives me treats.  I was glad when they told me they were collaborating on a new blog where they were going to share the materials and techniques they used to help clients when they were psychotherapists because as a retired Certified Canine Therapist I want everyone to know how to make themselves feel good.

Now I’m upset.  They are calling the blog CATNIP because they think catnip makes you feel mellow.  If that isn’t bad enough they are dedicating CATNIP to Peggy’s cat Maui.

Personally, I think catnip makes you crazy and the blog should be dedicated to me.

Now that they are both retired they seem to not be doing much of anything except wandering around*.   So they don’t go too far astray, I created a survey for them to help them be successful bloggers, like me.

Please fill out my survey for their CATNIblog!

    1. Dear Ferret!
      First of all, my human was very glad to hear from you.
      Secondly, I appreciate your admiring my “cuteness” I prefer to think I’m handsome but humans tend to see the world (and me) through a slightly distorted lens.
      Thirdly, Cats only rule in certain dominions. Canines are a bit more socially adept at knowing how to, dare I say, manipulate.
      Fourthly, I would like a ferret pet but they are not allowed in California.

          If you have trained your human to get up at 5:30 am to feed you you are now an Honorary Dog. Very impressive.

      Thanks for completing my survey. It probably took you so long to notice it because you were so enthralled and fixated on my picture. Don’t worry, that happens to all my fans.

  1. I’m pretty excited about this new blog from your human, Freddie, and I hope you will like it too. I do agree that the title is a bit strange. I would have called it Brownies or Cotton Candy, but what do I know? Maybe you and I will both try catnip and see what it does for us.

      I’m not too excited about this new blog called CATNIP because I’m still licking my wounds that it’s not called Doggie Treats . . . Brownies won’t work for me because my human says chocolate will KILL me (she tends to exaggerate at times but on this one I won’t take my chances), maybe blondies?

      I’d try catnip if you buy it as I’m on an allowance and prefer to spend my earnings on the tried & true.

      1. Aww, Freddie. You already have a blog. Talk to your human about renaming hers. Or adding your name to it. Don’t you have human- mind control? They respond very well to training if you know how to do it. Or is this an ability only cats have?

        Sammi the Ferret. We do it too. It’s more about distracting and making the human laugh. My boo boo eyes and tricks makes me get treats. Maybe work more on that?

        1. Dear Brighid, Feline Cat and Sammi the Ferret,
          You should both get a blog. You could name it FerretCat or FelineFerret because I’m sure neither of those names have been taken.

          Now to your questions Brighid:
          I can’t say IN PRINT if I have human-mind control because some things are classified.
          If cats had human-mind control humans would be more appreciative when you brought rats,lizards and birds home . . . .

          I agree with you Sammi the Ferret. Humans are easily distractible. I will work on boo boo eyes more. Thanks you for your suggestion

            My human doesn’t like mice, lizards, and the like to eat. She compliments me on my superior hunting skills.
            I rarely have to hunt. My human is trained to feed me twice a day. I wish I had larger portions. But human mind control sometimes fails when it comes down to certain things. Like “overfeeding” me.

            My human was most appreciative that I hunted and ate that spider today. A rare treat! I couldn’t care less if my human was impressed. I impress myself when I manage to catch a fly. Then my human should be impressed!

            1. Dear Brighid Feline Cat,
              Did you fry, broil or bake the spider? Flies are filthy- throw them away after you catch them and make sure you wash your paws but not with your tongue. Hygiene is not to be neglected . . . as all Feline Cats know.

              Thank you for writing me Brighid,

                  I prefer roast beef, chicken and fish, all cooked in a savory broth. I’m not sure if you are an epicurean or starved for protein.

                  I gather we shall have to agree to differ since your culinary “tastes” are different than mine. As I prefer not to hunt but be served!

    1. Dear Anne Hartley, Human-being,

      Thank you for taking your time to comment – I have many fans and admirers but most do not take time to write me so it is with great pleasure I read your comment. I am lots of fun, very even tempered, don’t bark and don’t shed. My human, unfortunately is not even tempered, barks occasionally and sheds.

    1. Dear Jacqui Murray, Human-being,
      I can’t wait for you to subscribe either. However, these humans are holding things up. They are well intentioned but they can’t figure out some of the technology. I think it’s because they are old and still lament the demise of the dial phone and yearn for the Pony Express . . and that’s old.

          We canines HAVE been patiently waiting around for eons. We’ll continue to be patient as long as we getting doggie treats and you human-beings keep figuring.

      Please don’t tell my human I’m replying to you. She always deletes messages from an “Anonymous” commenter cuz she’s afraid of spam. But you are so nice and recognize my cuteness and love me so I love you too.
