Cats have many questions. Perhaps that’s why they’re such wonderful companions. Curiosity doesn’t kill anything but boredom. Thankfully, a special day has been set aside to respond to your kitty’s queries: January 22 is National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day! Here are some possible exchanges between you and Boots.

1. Why are you disturbing my nap? Could you please keep it down?
Answer: Excuse me. Of course, I should be more sensitive to your schedule.

2. What is that you’re eating? Can I have some?
Answer: Not everything we eat is good for you. You already had your dinner. You have a nice bowl of cat food. Oh, okay, here try some.

3. Why did God make me so adorable?
Answer: This is to make up for the times when you get into mischief. Like the time you un-decorated the Christmas tree. Or when you went through the screen door to chase that blue jay. Or when you unraveled my favorite sweater.

4. Why do you waste your time talking into that talky-box contraption when you could be paying attention to me?
Answer: Yes, I understand by your yowls and meows that you wish to distract me from my phone conversations. But sometimes they can’t be avoided. Don’t you know that I’ll always snuggle with you when I’m done?

5. What is outside the window/in this box/on the other side of this door? I must know!
Answer: I know you cats are curious, but I have a question for you. Do you have to crawl inside/pounce on/bat at everything you see? Well yes, I admit…that’s what makes you so endearing.

What questions do you think your cats are asking you?
