Our cat's responsibilities are to make sure the acoustics of the basement are good by way of going down there a few times a day & hollering for no
apparent reason. He also makes sure the bed is toasty warm for us by getting under the sheets and staying put. Directly where one of us puts our butt
getting in to bed.
On occasion, he'll also follow you in the bathroom & make sure you're going sufficiently by staring creepily. He may also attempt to keep your bare
lap warm on the loo.
And most importantly, he makes sure you get up at whatever hour he deems fit, furry little alarm clock. One of the kids had the misfortune of being
woken before sunrise by being pounced on. Evidently, he was lonely. Sometimes breakfast gets him off your back, other times he just wants company
while he tests the basement acoustics out.
Our cockatiel's responsibilities are to test our sanity daily. He likes to chatter incessantly & loudly to test those limits. He has no off-switch or
mute button, unfortunately. He will also forcibly give you a dental exam if he's anywhere near your mouth, too. Just wants to make sure those
pearlies are in good shape, I guess. Someone needs to get it through his tiny brain that he doesn't need to try to shove his whole body in there,
either, he's just looking for pete's sake. Either that, or he's convinced there's some lost treasure somewhere in there & thinks he's going to
find it for us one of these days.
