Life at Chez Zed is pretty easy-going, but in order to maintain some sense of decorum, there are a couple of rules that must be followed. We don't allow any of them to be broken.
1. Yarn is not a toy.
2. If the toy is brought to you, you throw it immediately. Even if it is not brought directly to you, you still must throw it immediately. If the toy is dropped in your general vicinity, it is considered to be delivered directly to you and you are expected to drop everything to find the toy and throw it. If this rule is broken, you will be scolded.
3. No one is allowed on the kitchen counters or any other surface in the kitchen. We keep all two or four feet on the floor.
I'm a bit concerned we might need a refresher course on staying on the floor in the kitchen. Based on the number of kitty paw prints on the cupboard door, I don't think this is the first time this rule has been broken.
