Thirteen Reasons My Human Pet Needs A Break

1. A research paper due on Monday, with another one due in two weeks.

2. It's either been fast food or no food for the past few days.

3. She's had a nasty sinus infection for the past four days.

4. Somehow, even though she was sick, she managed to go to work.

5. She's behind on her TiVO.

6. She doesn't remember the last time she's seen some of her friends.

7. She recently bought three books from Amazon. Ask me if she's read any of them.

8. She forgets what a mall looks like.

9. If she hears the terms cultural capital, socioeconomic status, or the name, Bourdieu, she might crack.

10. She's moved Juan Valdez up a few notches on the list, The Top 100 Richest Men in the World.

11. It's news to her that her friends have blogs.

12. Had it not been for my headbutts in the morning, I don't know that she would have woken up.

13. Because 'burning a candle at both ends' just sounds gross.

Zeus, just between you and me, that's kind of a lame list. shhhh, don't tell anyone i saided that. - Miles

Carmen said...

Zeus, maybe you could write one of your human pet's papers for her? :) She'd get an "A" for sure!

Sonja Foust said...

It does sound kinda gross, come to think of it.

Jen said...

Zeus, you really should convince your human to take a break man! At this rate she might just crack! *grins*

Happy TT!

Radioactive Jam said...

No doubt Mr. Valdez appreciates yoru support. He's all like, "Cool beans!"

Okay no he's more like, "-". But still.

Cheysuli said...

burning the candle at both ends just sounds painful and dangerous.

Carmen! Stop trying to promote the feline sweatshop thing with making Zeus work! Don't you think he does enough already?!

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

If TiVo makes things easier why do we have 11 of certain shows?

The Crew said...

Why can't humans learn to take life easy like we do? I rarely get stressed out about anything except my sister's dogs.

Bob-kat said...

Two words for your human pet Zeus, 'burn out'.

Good luck with those papers. I feel a little kinship with you as I have an exam in two weeks and so much to do! Remember to breathe, and by that I mena take a moment to for yourself :-)

Mitchypoo said...

Zeus, what a understanding sweetie you are. Your human is way busy.

My TT is up, have your human visit if she has 2 minutes.

she said...

Zeus, you'll need to keep a careful eye on your human to make sure she doesn't crack. Perhaps a nice session of lap cuddling could be arranged?

Haley-O said...

Oh know! You're poor pet! She's behind on her TIVO -- suckage!

My pet's a tired-out nutball, too -- she's preggers with #2, 'nuff said....

Be good to your pet, kay! I LOVE YOU, ZEUS -- reowwwwprrrrr!

yao-lin said...

Oh I think your pet definitely needs a break.

Darling Millie said...

Oh dear, we had no idea. You take care of Marina.

Kuanyin said...

You're one tough cat Zeus! Happy TT!

K T Cat said...

Yuck! Fast food, fasting and studying don't mix. Go get some fruit, at least!

Lexa Roséan said...

hey Zeus, take care of your stressed out human:)

Parker said...

You need to slow her down, just get up in her face and purr. That always works for us!

The Meezers said...

zeus, i didn't mean that YOU was lame, i meanted that the 'skuses from your pet was lame. i hope i didn't upset you - Miles

kailani said...

Human pet needs to get her butt out of the house for some serious shopping therapy. LOL!

Icon Baxter Bentley said...

Zeus, maybe you could help her owt... you could eat some yummy food for her and watch the TiVO...
purrs,
Icon

Mert said...

Aww, I hope the pet feels better soon! Snurgles to both of you.

Kelly Cat said...

That brings back some vivid memories for my human. He says to hang in there, that this too shall pass. (Big deal, you can say the same thing about kidney stones, and they're no fun either)

Anyhow, give your mom lots of purrs and make her relax a little...

The Meezer Gang said...

Zeus! You need to take care of your Mommy...She sounds like she needs some love!

Mattingly said...

Your poor pet. Our Mom has been like that several times. I think that's why today it's 4pm and she's still in her pajamas and has only eaten a bowl of cereal. It's definitely way harder to be a human than a cat.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Oh, Zeus ... Your human pet needs more than just a few headbutts.

Karen Jo said...

Poor human pet. I really hope she gets a break soon.

scribbit said...

Okay that Juan Valdez thing had me rolling on the floor. Very funny!

NOLADawn said...

#6 would be enough for me to start to panic!

Ayatollah Mugsy said...

I need a break, too, Zeus. It's hard out here for a pug.

Ariel said...

"Oh My" your human needs a break quick.

Kukka-Maria said...

Um...Zeus? I don't get it. No matter if your Human Pet needs a break or not, YOU should be able to blog!

Are you telling us you don't do your own writing or typing?

I'm calling US Weekly and scooping this story!

caspersmom said...

Sure hope your Mom don't get to sick getting all stressed out. That's good that you are still giving her head butts. She sounds like she needs comforting. So keep up the good work Zeus.

LOL Good work, Zeus. I hope her sinus infection gets better very soon.
