Allegra and Ruby’s New Year’s Resolutions

New-Years-Eve-cats

I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. I set intentions for the year instead. I’ve found that it’s a more powerful way to go about making permanent changes in your life, and intentions tend to “stick” better than resolutions, at least for me. However, Allegra and Ruby have been discussing their New Year’s resolutions these last few days, and they’d like me to share their top 3 resolutions with you.

Allegra’s New Year’s Resolutions

  1. I will help Mom with her daily exercises.
  2. I will try to get to Mom’s lap before Ruby, since Ruby doesn’t let me on Mom’s lap if she gets there first.
  3. I will try not to hover over Ruby and stare at her until she wakes up when she’s sleeping in her bed in Mom’s office.

Ruby’s New Year’s Resolutions

  1. I will try to let Allegra share Mom’s lap and not get all huffy about it.
  2. I will help Mom work so she can spend less time at the computer and more time with us. You can read my full job description here.
  3. I will figure out how to get more tuna!

    Lando:

    Get dinner early by fighting with Hoagie
    Find all the puff balls he’s hidden in the house (just yesterday he pulled out an old purple one that I swore was in our old house)
    Get the seat on mom’s lap while she’s on the toilet

    Hoagie:

    Get dinner early by fighting with Lando
    Learn to stay IN the house when people come over (this is more of a mom-hope than a Hoagie resolution)
    Get the window seat in the bathroom when mom is in there

    My three cats worked together on their resolutions;
    * Share the bay window and other comfortable places instead of one of us hoarding it
    * Play each other without biting or otherwise being mean
    * Coax Mom together for playtime so she takes more breaks from work to be with us

    Happy 2019! We kitties here don’t do resolutions, especially Binga! She has resolutions for everyone else!
