Advice: Two Cats and Piggie

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Dear Meankitty,

I have two barn cats… and whenever I go to feed them in the barn, there are THREE cats! I usually shoo the stray with a pitchfork… but then she comes back and eats all my cat’s food! I tried feeding my cats MORE, despite the stray cat… but she still eats it all!

What do I do?

Dear Annoyed,

What’s this about you only having two cats? I count three…One, Two and Piggie. Just because she eats more than the others is no reason to disown her. We didn’t disown Elvis, did we? You have three barn cats! Perhaps you need three food bowls. And once Piggie becomes used to the soft touch that is her new person, her eating habits should slow down. When my person first wised up and allowed me in the house, I ate anything that was put in front of me — but now I’ve learned that being a picky eater is MUCH more annoying to the humans.

Either way, you’d better make friends fast or taking Piggie for that rabies shot is going to cost you.

Advice: Birdivore

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Dear Meankitty,

My 11 month old kitten is determined to investigate my parakeet…up close and personal. The cage hangs over an old jukebox whose age and size determine its positioning in my house. Cardboard barriers and water guns have been unsuccessful. Any suggestions?

Dear Feathers,

Birds are the natural prey of nice and meankitties alike. However, a more tasty prey is mice. I suggest you invest in some caged mice or hamsters to distract your kitten. Maybe get one of those balls the rodent can run around in — it will drive your kitten mad with desire.

Advice: Naked Kitty

Dear Meankitty,

My cat likes to pull all the hair from his bottom. This exposes parts of my cat that might offend my visiting friends and neighbors.  What should I do?

What is this place?

While simplicity and spelling errors have their place on the feline internet, if you long for something more substantial… If you know in your heart of hearts that kitties are not sweet or kind or cuddly…

This is the place for an in-depth revelation of kitty antics that are *not* so cute, the place where the real face of kitty is revealed. This is…

Meankitty.com. We’re happy to flea you. I mean, see you. Kitties do like their fresh meat.

Grand Opening

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Today is the first day our new site design has been live at the proper address, www.meankitty.com . We plan to have daily, or even more frequent, updates as we slowly convert current gallery cats to the new framework. We tried to keep the look and feel of the site as streamlined and familiar as possible while adding the ability for visitors to leave comments, get the RSS feed, share pages via social media, and be otherwise modern and savvy. Needless to say we’re probably 3 years behind the modern and savvy curve, but it works for now, right?

Feel free to leave comments on this post or back at the commentary blog, http://meankittybox.blogspot.com that Meankitty shares with Typing Slave. At least, we hope there are still people visiting after the long, dry spell. Please let us know if you stuck with us! We’re going to make it worth your while as old cats you know and new cats you will come to know traipse across the front page of the blog, shedding fur as they go.

Sincerely,

MK & TS
