I Advise You That We Can All Just Get Along

BlutoDear Modern Philosopher,

I wanted to congratulate you on the furry new additions to your family.  I’m a cat person myself, and it warms my heart anytime I hear about someone opening his life to pets who need a home.  Blessings to you and your new kitties.

My kids saw the photo you posted on your blog last night, and ever since it’s been “Mom, can we get another kitten?”  I pretend it bothers me, but it really doesn’t because now I want to add to the feline family in my home.

What I was wondering was how are the kitties adapting to all the Otherworldly Beings that are constant fixtures at The House on the Hill?  By my last count, you had The Devil, an Archangel, a Leprechaun, a Gargoyle on the roof, three Witches, Werewolves, Aliens, an occasional Monster Under The Bed, Ghosts in the attic, Zeus, Mayor McCheese, and a Vampire.  Not to mention a famous Time Travel popping up from time to time in his DeLorean, and creepy members of The Allow Hallows Society lurking in the shadows.

Have the cats been exposed to all those house guests yet?  If so, how did they react?

Wishing you so much joy with your new feline family members!

get alongDear Kitty Mommy,

Thank you for your kind words and warm wishes.  I will make sure to pass them along to Cali and Luna when they decide to emerge from under the bed!

You are right, The House on the Hill is often swarming with Otherworldly Beings of many different background, origins, shapes, and sizes.  I certainly took that into account before adopting my little purr balls, but I had a hunch that this wouldn’t be a problem given how well Banky did with this diverse crowd.

I advise you that we can all just get along.  So far, Cali and Luna have been fine with my visitors and vice versa.  Luna took quite a liking to Seamus, which surprised me since that little Leprechaun can be so loud and annoying.

The bottom line is, ever since I’ve opened The House on the Hill to Maine’s Otherworldly Being population, there have been absolutely no problems.  Even Satan and Rachel the Archangel have called a truce so that they can be here at the same time.  Maybe it’s something magical about this old house, or maybe it’s the idea that even though we are all different on the outside, underneath it all, we just want to be liked, make friends, and have a safe place to go to relax and unwind.

My kitties are going to love it here, and their arrival has made The House on the Hill an even happier place.

Please give your kitties a scratch behind the ears from me.

  1. I love your work. It would mean the world if you checked out my cartoons and to give your opinion? Thank you so much

  2. Excellent question. Why CAN’T we all get along. Sounds simple enough to me. 😮
    We need to RESPECT each other. That’d be a great start.

    Im glad there is an understanding between all parties that visit or reside at the House on the Hill. It took Daryl and Teeny a while to reach a truce. Voodoo forgets it sometimes and goes on wild rampages around the house and we all just have to sit back and wait till she recovers her sanity.
