Dear Tabby,

How many of you grew up wanting to write an advice column?  Okay, okay, Randy, you can put your hand down now. We all know you’re dying to be the next Dr. Phil, but this is my blog so save your gems of wisdom for the comments section.

In my lower-middle-management supervisor position, people invade my office from time to time to tell me about a “friend” who’s knee deep in kitty litter and just discovered the little treasures they’re turning over aren’t Chicken McNuggets. That’s when I refer them to  authority on the subject, Tabby.

Dear Tabby,

          My caregivers, Mistress Anne and Servant Bob, act like I don’t exist when Christmas comes. They run from one event to another like gravy through a goose, all the while ignoring the center of their universe—ME. How can I get them back in line? – Felix in Phoenix

 Dear Felix,

          It’s time to slam down your paw and extend the claws. A little spray in Bob’s truck or golf bag would send the message that you own him—for life. Shred a curtain and drop Anne a few unexpected gifts in hard to reach places. After all, it is the season for giving. – Tabby

  1. My husband is the reluctant cat poop scooper at our house. All cats belong to our daughter who is away at college. She gave him a priceless birthday card from the cats – “We left you a gift. We’re all about presentation”


  2. Russell,
    This is a great take on the prompt. I love the idea of cats having an advice column. Thanks for the laugh. I get the feeling my cat has been writing to Tabby. REALLY well done. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you and yours.



I'd love to hear from you
