I'm Sharing My Home With...Cats!

Dear Olivia.

Thank you for the sweet compliment on my coat. I can assure you it is all smoke and mirrors. My mom
works in the professional hair industry and uses dry shampoo and leave in conditioner on me. I actually have a few dread locks of my own. Especially in my beard and under my chin. I like the rastafarian look and wish that she would just leave it alone. I hate brushings too! Ugh!

The picture of you and Food Dispenser is so beautiful! I love that you are jumping! It looks like it was a beautiful wedding! I would love to hear these accents your parents have. My mom and dad sound different as well. They are Southerners and have a bit of a twang. They speak slow and drag out words. It's endearing but sometimes it just bothers me. I caught myself saying bawk the other day instead of bark. It's a bit catchy.  If you've ever watched Hart of Dixie you will find similar accents to how my mom and dad speak.

It must be wonderful to have some dog friends. I don't have dog friends. I just have family friends. And then there are the fur beasts. I probably need to tell you that I share my home with several...cats. I have not yet figured out what they are here for or what they want. They seem to be very covert though. As if they are planning something. They are pretty useless except for when I play Panda Safari and run through the house pretending to be a rhinoceros. I like to pick them up with my nose and flip them up high into the air. It really ticks them off. I guess it's really a release for me.

Here is a picture of me and the fur beasts.

                                                                      I. Am. In. Hell.

The orange one is especially annoying. She is always yapping. She was yapping when mom took this picture. She never shuts up. The gray one steals my toys. We need to make a plan to keep our toys and treats from being taken. Maybe some courses in agility? I'm not very fast. My head is the fastest thing about me. Mom calls it my Hungry Hippo action. Apparently there was a game that had hippos lunging their mouths at marbles and I have a similar feature. Yeah, yeah. Whatever. Just don't take my stuff. Right?

I hope  you have had a good day. I will send more correspondence soon.



  1. Dear Panda and Boo, I live in the Pacific Northwest. I am 5months old. My adorable sister Gemma is 10months and is a Havanese. I have TWO fabulous kitties in my house. Both are black. Henri is the youngest and has the responsibility of bringing us up to be magnificent kitty-dogs. We LOVE to play with him. Uncle Bilbo is a bit grumpy but still seems to like us. He's still sad because his dog, Socrates the English Springer Spaniel, died of cancer earlier this year. I love my mom-person, especially when we go see her great niece playing soccer. And my dad-person does the bessssssttttt massage...ummmm. I love a good ball and a good laugh. And a good barkkkkk. Mom-person says no. mmmggrrrrr. Oh well, lick, lick, kiss, kiss. I love her. Good to chat. P.S. My mom-person has a sister in Wales! I wish I could visit. It's kind of near where we were originally designed! Cheers, Barkkkkkk. Duncan

  2. Greetings to you Duncan. Thank you for sharing your story with us. I'm relieved to hear that I am not the only one living with cats. I love the name Uncle Bilbo! If you figure out a way to herd them into a box and ship them off to a far away land please share the details. It sounds like you get along well. That is a good thing. Sending you a big hug and butt sniff. -Panda

  3. hi Duncan! This whole internet thingy is so exciting! We can meet new friends and find out lots of interesting things about each other. I'm the only child but I don't mind really. I'm fascinated with cats you both seem to have as your pets. We can't have one as my people Mom says she is allergic? I don't know what that means but she makes funny wheezing noises when there are kitties around so probably I won't be getting one for Christmas! It's really sad about Socrates. I don't know anyone who died but it's because I'm still young. I will be 5 soon and I can't wait to get my birthday liver cake! yumm! We hope you can stay in touch with us! woof x Olivia
