Cat etiquette

Dear Ms. Kitty Manners -

I am writing to you today to ask your opinion about a couple of cat etiquette issues. My two cat family members, Onyx 12 and Maggie 11, and I have recently moved into a spacious two-bedroom apartment. Because everything in our home is new and/or fresh from relocation, I have become more aware of some possible rude behavior from my recently relocated cat companions.

First, do you believe it is a bit cheeky for one or more cats to use their commode and immediately return to bed, thereby depositing numerous grains of litter on our sleeping space?

And second, do you think it is necessary for Maggie to revisit her luncheon on our new/old livingroom couch instead of in an easier-to-clean or less public area? I especially find this infraction heinous as it may well have been done on purpose and with malice!

Believe me Ms. Kitty I did raise my pre-teens to have more couth than these examples would suggest. Please advise if the above behavior is in fact worthy of demerits and/or reduction of kitty treats?

Thank you for your time, and may your cats refrain from grooming their intimate areas in your front picture window just as company arrives at your genteel home.
