My Dad is Reading Cat Fancy and Now I am Worried!

Gracey watching her dad from the Cat Power TowerMy dad doesn’t realize that I can see him from on top of my Cat Power Tower in the sunroom.  He is sitting in the kitchen, drinking his tea and reading a magazine. But not just any magazine, he is reading the August issue of Cat Fancy that arrived at our habitat yesterday.

Now you might not think that reading Cat Fancy is a peculiar activity and it is certainly not unusual for one of my parents to be looking through this magazine, but it isn’t just that he is reading the magazine, it is the particular article that has his interest, that has me worried.

As you know, Dad and I often share a middle of the night cup of tea and chow chomping time.  I look forward to spending this quiet time with him in the wee hours of the morning when it is still dark and not even the birds are singing.

But now this morning, I see him reading this article and I wonder why he is so interested in this topic.  This has me a bit concerned and I am not certain what to do.    Here is a photo I snapped catching him in the act.

Now, as you can see, my dad appears to be super interested in this article.  The name of the article is

Simple Tips to End Nighttime Antics.

Now why do you think my dad would want to stop drinking tea?   Tea is full of antioxidants, that are beneficial toI Heart Tea his health. I want my dad to stay healthy just as much as he wants me to stay healthy.

Since tomorrow is Father’s Day, I am thinking of getting him a shirt with this logo on the front.

What do you think?

  1. Gracey, maybe he is trying to get a bit more sleep so he has more time to play with you? Not to worry, as a mom to two cats, I can tell you that you are the apple of his eye 🙂
