2.  Why don't the people like to play all the time? 
3.  Why don't the people like it when you stick your hiney in their face? 
4.  What is "day hunting" and why does it make mine mommy go away for a long time? 
5.  Why is Billy wet so much?
6.  Why does mommy laff when I runs around the house wif a soda bottle cap in mine mouf "trilling" and "hollering"?
7.  Why does sunbeams make me so sleepy? 
8.  Why can't I get the mouse out of the round track toy thing? 
9.  Why shouldn't I eat boxes? 
10. Why shouldn't I eat shoes? 
11. Why are belly rubs so wonderful?

Those are all super questions. We do not have the answers to them though. Hope you have a super day.

Rascal said...

Excellent questions! What I want to know though, is why we got new kittens.

Great questions Nicky, but we don't know the answers either, except for the belly rub one! It's because they feel so good!

Cory said...'ll spend the next 15 years or so trying to figure it out!! We're still trying!

William said...

Sadly, Nicky, most of those questions have remained unanswered since the beginning of catdom.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Aren't belly rubs the bestest thing besides ear scritches. We don't know all the answers to all the questions Nicky - we're just 2 cats.

TK said...

I know right? They is a very confused lot those humans. I feels sorry they not plays or get belly scritches.
I hopes you gets lots of belly rubs Nicky, that's what makes you grow up to be a great mancat!

Good questions. If you find the answers, we hope you will share them.

Our question:

Why are yoo so cute that our momma wants to smoochie yoo?

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Those are excellent questions. Sometimes I find that asking Max can be helpful.

1. catnapping is a skill. my mommeh says if she sleeps and wakes a lot, she feels sick. for whatever reason, beans need just one continuous nap.
2. beans can not play all the time because they have to do things called work. then when they get home from the work place they are tired, so i guess they are all out of energy for playing.
3. i do not know why the hiney-to-face is not appreciated. if you ask me it is a verreh good way to get to know someone a little better.
4. that's when they go to the work place to earn the green papers. i do not like it that it keeps my mommeh away all day either, but without it i would not be able to have all the noms and treats and toys and pink princess bowls!
5. maybe he fell into the big bean litterbox like Audrey did.
6. mommehs think it is cute when we do these things. they do not realize we are not just being silly - it is important!
7. i do not know why sunbeams make you sleepy, because they do not make me sleepy. they wake me up a lot and i like to stay alert and see what is happening outside the window.
8. because it is a torture device designed to drive you slowly insane.
9. i looooooooves to chew up boxes too, but my mommeh gets all grumbly and gets the sucky thing out. she complains about the mess. it is not mess, it is confetti!
10. because generally they do not taste good.
11. because your mommeh gives them to you!

Simba said...

Let me know when you find out the answer to #3. Great questions!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

We are very impressed by all of Attie's answers. But, really, Nicky, there are many mysteries to life and sometimes, it's more fun to let them stay mysteries!

Jacqueline said...

Sweet Silly Nicky, those are all good questions, but we think it all boils down to cats are smarter than humans and that's why they don't think like we do about everything...Case in point: why aren't they rolling in the sunbeams napping and asking for belly rubs?...Maybe all humans are aliens=we might need to talk with Sammy about that idea!...kisses adorable friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Dem is some good kweshtuns...we don't know da answers tho...let us know if yoo find out.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Nicky! Being the youngest cat in the house, I have been wondering those things myself - here are my observations:
1. Our mom would love to sleep a long time but she has to go to the stupid day hunting. But we still think she wouldn't sleep as much as us, and I am not sure why.
2. I think the people don't play all the time because they are tired - because of the lack of sleep.
3. I can't figure this one out - but I try not to anyway because in our house at least, hiney biting is a popular thing, and I don't want my hiney bit by my mom (her mouth is so much bigger then a cat mouth - ouch!)
4. Day hunting is when the moms and dads go somewhere and do stuff that makes them angry and tired. I know my mom hates it a lot but says she has to go so she has green papers so we have food and a house. So I say she should keep going. Plus when she is gone that means we can do things we aren't supposed to!
5. Billy is wet so much, ummmm, probably the same reason we are wet sometimes - at our house at least our mom squirts us with water if we are bad. Either that or it is like when I fell in the bathtub and got wet - is your bathtub full a lot? That could be why too (Virgil tells me the toilet can also make you wet so maybe from that).
6. You mommy laffs because when someone is doing super cute that is what moms do. I imagine you look very cute when you carry your cap around. My mom does that when Virgil carries stuff, and she says "how cute". Moms do weird stuff (like they cry when they are happy - weird!)
7. Sunbeams are magical and have the power to make you sleep, and they are warm so that ups the magic factor. But it is mostly magic.
8. I am not sure why you can't get the mouse out, but I am guessing it is the same reason I can't get the white ball out of the track at our house - my guess is, again, probably magic.
9. Well, eating boxes is tricky - if you eat too much you will barf. And if you eat the fancy kind that aren't brown, you could barf. I recommend small amounts of brown box, because then you don't barf, so it is ok.Boxes have fiber - too much fiber makes you barf. Oh, and Virgil said that too much can also bind you up, which is also bad.
10. Shoes aren't really food they are more toys - you should play with them, put stuff in them, maybe even lay on them. When you have an urge for a shoe, go for a box instead (or even better try and get a treat!)
11. Belly rubs are not really my thing - I am guessing it is like when my mom scratches behind my ears and makes me smile huge - it just feels so darn good!

So, Nicky, I hope I helped you out! I am only just a year old now, but these are the observations I have made (along with the notes from my brother Virgil, who will be 2 soon - so he is way more experienced then me.)

Barney (the other HOC cats, Kirzon and Lola, just rolled their eyes - but they are old and that is why!)

Katnip Lounge said...

These are questions that Cats through the ages have asked. We think you've gotten some great answers and we're gonna take notes!
Our question is "why do we have to go to the v-e-t when we're not sick?"

Junior and Orion said...

Here are our answers to your questions. We hope the help a little bit.

1. Why don't the people sleep a LONG time and not take short sleeps like us? ~~Cause they are weird.

2. Why don't the people like to play all the time? ~~Cause they are weird.

3. Why don't the people like it when you stick your hiney in their face? ~~Cause they think our hineys smell.....they obviously can't smell themselves too well!

4. What is "day hunting" and why does it make mine mommy go away for a long time? ~~We have learned that this is how humans feed us. We aren't exactly sure what they do at these place, but they get green papers and those green papers buy us food.

5. Why is Billy wet so much? ~~As we recall, something about the human litterbox.

6. Why does mommy laff when I runs around the house wif a soda bottle cap in mine mouf "trilling" and "hollering"?~~Cause she is weird.

7. Why does sunbeams make me so sleepy? ~~We don't know. Sunbeams are wonderful, it seems we should stay awake to enjoy them!

8. Why can't I get the mouse out of the round track toy thing?~~If you figure this one out, let us know.

9. Why shouldn't I eat boxes?~~Well, we don't eat boxes, we sit in them, so we have no answer for this one.

10. Why shouldn't I eat shoes? ~~These are for sniffing....not eating. We bet that rubbery and leathery stuff they are made of is not good for you.

11. Why are belly rubs so wonderful? ~~Are they wonderful? We don't like them.
