Welcome, agents! Thank you for joining me for another Men & Mischief post! Today we have a special public service announcement from the THIRDS provided by Destructive Delta’s own Dexter J. Daley. You may not be aware, but having a felid Therian partner can be just as dangerous as the cases you’re called out on. Have no fear. Agent Daley has put together this infographic to help you on your way to a harmonious felid Therian partnership.

  1. Do allow your mini felid partner to groom your hair, otherwise a paw with claws with be used to hold your head in place.

  2. LOL!!!! I agree completely! I have a mini felid partner and I understand the all-important need to follow these rules. With my partner, the rule about sharing the food is a specially delicate one. You know, she grew in an animal shelter and she is a bit obsessed with food: What with having to share with twenty other half siblings...
    Thank you for make me laugh this early in the morning ;)

  3. As the proud owner of a canine companion: Do allow your canine companion to lick your feet...otherwise socks may mysteriously disappear!

  4. Thanks for the post! I always greatly enjoy your posts and graphics. :-)

    With my felid partner (and I use that term lightly since he does NOT do his share of anything but sleeping), one rule is: Do not touch his belly when his is luring you in by displaying it. Your hand will not come back the same.

  5. As a long time life partner of several mini felids, I loved and agree with your do's and don'ts. One of my current felids insists on drinking out of my water glass. He can have a fresh bowl of water from the same source right next to him, but will hunt down my glass. I used to throw the rest out and get fresh, but figure after 50 years, I'm full of felid cooties. My current felids like tummy rubs and kisses, but like Jen commented, I used to have a female felid who used the tummy trap on me. YEOUCH!

  6. I don't think I have a preference over Felid or Canine partners. I think it mostly depends on their human character not their animal counterpart. But because of Cael, I might be partial to Cheetahs. Or Seb/Ethan and Tigers. Ash and Lions. Sloane and Jaguars. I can't make up my mind. Ahh! Oooh or a Bear. Okay. I can't choose.

  9. mini felid do except the felid to take up over half of the bed even if they are normally only 20 inches long, they can take up an amazing amount of space. and whatever you do DON'T push them off from the bed, unless you want to wake up with the mini felid lounging on your face.

  10. I have a felid and when I pet her and go to move away she grabs my habd with her claws and paws and doesn't let me. She also sleeps on my arm or hip when I'm sleeping on my right or left side.

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  12. Do let him bark at the neighbors "saying she is mine" so the don't try and get involved in what we are doing.

  13. Rub your felid partner's back twice then stop to assess whether further rubbing will be tolerated. If the felid lays down and shows his belly abort petting session and move away quickly! My family learned these rules the hard way! Loved the post. Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. Oh, these comments are wonderful. Sadly I am currently felid partner free. I only have one small room to call my own, and that would be too constraining for the little guy. I often dream of the loving bond my mini felid and I had, before we were separated. We were inseparable...as was right and proper; how could I wait on my spoiled darling if I locked myself in the bathroom for some personal time. Sigh. I replaced so many doors. j dot stonewright at gmail dot com

  15. Well, I have a Canaid partner and one thing I have learned: Don't rouse a sleeping Canaid, even if he is layin on the remote control.

    Thanks for the laugh. Vrundell (at) yahoo (dot) com.

  16. My felid used to sit and stare at my canid until he moved and then promptly sit in the vacated spot. As they got older sharing was permitted though I suspect it had more to do with arthritic impatience than charity!

  17. Mama mini felid decided to get her freak on, so at present I have 5 mini-mini felid.. I've learned that they love any attention. Don't go into their area and pet them if you want to leave any time soon. Their cries are pitiful, lol

    PS. Mama mini felid was a stray that adopted me. To bad when she was pining away trying to get out that my husband did

  18. Do buy extra hair bands (in bright hard to hide colors if possible)
    Do NOT attempt to hide said hair bands (drawers merely require a second mini felid to act as distraction until significant leverage can be obtained to open)

    My Charlie is obsessed with my hair bands. He likes to play fetch, especially if they bounce off a wall. His sister, Lucy, is the more devious one though, I think she does most of the plotting when they want something.

  19. Having two canine companions currently, always remember that scratching their special scratch spot WILL result in momentary loss of higher thought processes AND on some occasions very wet kisses.

  20. I recently acquired 3 two-week old felid partners. Now they're 6 weeks old and they keep me occupied
    just watching them play in, out, and around a large cardboard box. :-)

  22. I've learned from several canines over the year that I shouldn't eat anything in front of them. Otherwise I WILL be subjected to a look that simultaneously tries to imply that she is the most starving canine in all of the universe (despite just leaving her dinner bowl clean) and that if I feed her just the tiniest morsel I will be her favorite human of all time.

  23. I have learned not to wear my long hair loose around my sister's mini felid. He tries to eat it. amaquilante(at)gmail(dot)com

  24. I don't have any animal friends. I use to have a felid partner but she's gone now. If I had to pick I might go for mini this go around since I already know how it is to have a felid partner....are we allowed to pick both? lol

  25. Do give your canine partner the bone after a great steak dinner.

  26. I've always been more of a canine person.

  27. Do forget all intimacy issues and forget any sense of propriety as your mini felid partner will always snuggle in the most unbelievable nooks and crannies of your body, even in public...
    Don't ever believe you're still your own, as obviously your mini felid is the boss of you and has the teeth to make the point sticks (yes, my cat doesn't know how to use his claws!).

    Thanks Charlie for the always entertaining posts, and this wonderful THIRDS series you gave us!

  28. My 5 felid companions share their home with me, my husband and daughter :) They mostly get along but sometimes the fur does fly a bit. Two are maine coons and very large - one of them loves to sleep on my pillow, leaving no room for me. My husband ends up sharing his.

  31. Thank you all so much for your amazing comments. I've had such a great time reading them! I currently have a mini Canid and I could come up with a book of Do's and Don'ts where he's concerned. LOL. He's a doxiepoo mix, which means he doesn't have the usual Doxie tiny legs, so great acrobatics are always being performed, usually to get something he wants. Eating anything in his presence is out of the question because he'll find a way to jump on my lap and put his face in mine with his pleading big puppy eyes. Every day is an adventure. LOL
