* When I say move, it means go someplace else, not switch positions with each other so there are still two of you in the way.

* The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note: Placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

* The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me does not help, because I fall faster than you can run.

* I cannot buy anything larger than a king size bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue to sleep on the couch to ensure your comfort. Look at videos of dogs and cats sleeping, they can actually curl up in a ball. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space used is nothing but sarcasm.

* For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If, by some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob, or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. In addition, I have been using bathrooms for years - canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.

* My compact discs are not miniature Frisbees.

* The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's rear (I cannot stress this enough).

Great stuff. Much of it applies to both dogs and cats. Perhaps even rabbits.

I love the "move" part. One of my dogs is expert at standing in front of the TV set, especially during "must see" moments, and the word, "MOVE", said at high volume and emotion, invariably casues him to turn and look at me without unblocking the view in any way. Only when the scene in question has dissovled to commercial does he deign to actaully move. He doesn't like commercials either.

Which makes me think, having the superpower to turn someone esle invisible might be handy.
