I’ve been studying Pedro’s daily activities for a while, and I’ve made the following observations:
1.) Pedro is sleep deprived. He sleeps an average of 16 hours a day, which isn’t enough for optimal feline performance.
2.) Pedro’s schedule is so full that he is currently only able to spend 45 minutes per day pursuing his career goals. At that rate, I believe it will take 6-7 years to complete his first manuscript and Phases 1 & 2 of his business plan.
3.) Pedro spends more time grooming me than I spend grooming me.
A.) Pedro should immediately stop grooming others. Especially elderly feline others.
B.) Pedro should scale back his own grooming to a maximum of 2.5 hours daily.
C.) Pedro should stop hunting. His bowl is full of kibble 24/7. There’s no need to slink around like a fierce predator stalking a wildebeest, wasting precious time.
D.) Cuddling should be reduced to 1 hour per day.
E.) As soon as the grooming of others ends, I will devote an hour of my precious time daily to assist in Pedro’s career pursuits.
These changes will allow him 17 hours per day of sleep, which is still inadequate but more reasonable. This gives him 3 hours per day to work towards his career goals, plus 1 hour of my time. The additional “work” time makes it possible for me to think that I may be able to live my last days in peace and quite while Pedro is a celebrity cat jet setting all over the place.
