Hiyu: We want to talk about our resolutions for the new year.
Me: Really? You guys have changes in lifestyle you want to implement?
Loki: No, silly. We have resolutions for everyone else.
Kuri: Yeah, we have a good long list.
Loki: We have a plan.
Me cautiously: Are you going to tell me the details of your plan?
Kuri: Last year we started our Cat Emergency Response Team. We’re going to talk a lot about emergency preparedness. We want all of our readers to be safe and prepared.
Loki: Even dogs and birds and hippopotami.
Hiyu: That’s the plural of hippopotamus. We like to educate people.
Loki: We’re also going to help you lose weight.
Me: You could lose a couple of pounds too.
Loki: You have a lot more to lose than I do. Hiyu’s going to inspect your food and keep track of your exercise.
Me: Anything else?
Loki: You need to take more pictures of us. My coat is perfect.
Kuri: We’re going to help around the house more.
Hiyu: We have a lot of surprises for you this year. It’s going to be fun.
Me suspiciously: Surprises?
Kuri flicks his ear. Hiyu gives me an evil grin and Loki gives me a tummy to pet.
Now I’m really looking forward to 2018.
