The Rules - Revised

I had some good input from my buddies, so I have revised the rules


Rule number one: When in doubt, wash.


Rule number two: If rule one does not apply, nap.

Rule Number Three - if rules 1 and 2 are complete, eat.


Rule Number Four - Meditate as needed.
I think this is enough rules. Don't want life to get too complicated.

Rule #3 - when Rules 1&2 are complete, eat. - Miles

You looks like you is hafing a furry happy dream!

Fat Eric said...

Miles beat me to it - I was going to say, what about the most important rule (for me) - EAT???? But when one has a nice full stomach, your two rules are very important, Derby!

Merlin said...

I like those rules, I think we all should abide by them at all times.

in fact.... I think Rule #2 might need to go into effect right now...

Latte said...

Derby, I love your philosophy in life. I'd like to add #3- eat which can be applied as needed.

You look so comfy (and meowmy says CUTE!)

Catzee said...

Ok. I asked Mom to help me write these down so I could memerize em. This is important kitty stuff! I wonder if that's why Rascal is taking a nap right now.

Patches & Mittens said...

I think Rule #3 is meditate. Works for me.....

Hi Derby. When Jasmine saw Rule #1 she wondered if you had made this up yourself, or if you had already read the book 'Jennie' by Paul Gallico. Check out this note about the book and in the review paragraph you will see this exact line!

Canberra BK said...

Oops. I meant to say '... also read the book...'.

Jasmine read this book many years ago when she was a littler Jasmine. She really really liked it.

Hi Derby!

Sorry we missed your Smiley Boy contest. We sure would have voted for you!

Hope your Mums foot feels better, but of course with Dr. Derby on call 24/7, how can it not be?

Luxor said...

Derby, I love the way you make things seem so simple. We all just need to learn to go with the flow, that's what my Mom always says.

You are wise.

Rascal said...

I agree, too many rules would leave too little time for washing, napping, eating, and meditating.

William said...

I'm embarrassed to tell you that my mom would kiss your footies like a million times, she says they are so cute. I think she needs to pay attention to the rules.

Max said...

#3 would be my #1, but other than that, you got it!

Cecilia said...

I think for Mrs.B rule #1 is "when in doubt eat" and rule #2 is "if rule number #1 does not apply, eat some more"

Gemini said...

don't we always get to eat? that's the best rule!

Chaotic Cat said...

Jumps up and down ... I have a very special rule ... for younger cats ... Play!!! Acutally all the cats in this house play a lot :)

Thanks for the welcome on my blog.

I think these are fantastic rules, Derby! When life is simple, you don't have to worry about so much. I love the photos as well.

Kismet said...

Wow, these are great, Derb! I espeshully like to take baths. I like to clean in between all my toes.

Fat Eric said...

Good revised rules, Derby...though I still think eating should be rule number 1...

Karen Jo said...

George, Tipper, Max & Misty, the smiley cat contest is still going. I just checked and Derby is in second place. Go vote for him now.
