Looking after someone else’s cats can be fun, but it also can be a little overwhelming if you’re not familiar with each cat’s individual sensibilities. A Tumblr user named Amanda was tasked with watching her friend’s cats, and she was thankfully left with a helpful note to guide her through the experience.
Cat-sitting is important to remember a lot of things than just how the cat looks. According to international cat-sitting expert Maria Atkins, acting calm around new cats and giving them as much time as they need to feel comfortable around you is crucial. Cats rely heavily on scent, so it may take them a short while to get used to yours if it’s your first time in their home. When in doubt, however, play time goes a long way – with the occasional treat thrown in to sweeten the deal.
Now let’s take a look at the hilarious note.
The Cats :
Here is your key for the cats :
Samson – All gray. The most handsome cat you have ever seen. Looks like a cat that was drawn by a Disney animator.
Dobby – All black. No tail. Looks like a cat that was drawn by a person who has a vague idea of what cats look like but in reality has never seen one.
Dixie – Calico. Looks like she would speak with a squeaky voice. Very short. Will use her nails to love you.
Wilson – Gray and white. Obese. Still adorable. Looks like Tony Sopranco. Probably the mob boss.
Let us know which one you think is Samson, Dobby, Dixie and Wilson.
