feed me!

feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me feed me !!!!!!!!

man, i'm hungry. meow! the people have taken to only feeding us at certain times of the day. that does not suit my aloof, carefree nature. so i think i will run around like a maniac until something is done about this.

it's funny, because even as i type this, i know what'll happen: i'll start to bother them, i'll try and get attention, they'll just want to pet me incessantly, then i'll go sit in my chair and fall asleep. so i will last another few hours until i'll really need food again.

maybe i could do police work

so, now that i'm three, i think it's time for me to get a job. and i've been putting some thought into the kind of jobs i could do. one thing that came to mind is a couch and mattress tester. i would imagine that the people who make this furniture would want to make sure they're comfortable for sleeping, and i could certainly do that.

then again, i only weigh something like 12 pounds, so maybe they need something heavier. ok, i'll put that on my "B" list. what about a chef? i've always loved to cook. well, i've never done it before, but i imagine that could be fun. a little poached salmon, a side of creamed mouse ears, that could be delightful.

i've also considered being a police cat. i know there are police dogs, so why not cats? i bet we could be as helpful in tracking down criminals, if not more so. i offer many services - in case the siren doesn't work, i could meow loudly out the window of the cruiser. or if we're trying to sneak up on a bad guy, i know my paw pads wouldn't be heard, and then i could pounce at the last second! and if we were trying to catch a fish thief, i could track down the scent, and share in the spoils when we got him. i think that's how it works, right?

i'll keep considering other job options - for now, i guess i'll just stick around here and be a house cat.

reflections on turning three

so, my birthday was the other day. i think it was pretty normal - long periods of rest interrupted by intermissions of eating, and a boisterous catfight with my brother in the evening. and it occurred to me, what does it mean to be three years old? i've been through so much in my life, but at the same time, i know there's so much i have yet to experience.

i would like to spend some time outdoors in the coming year, during which time i would like to make my first kill of a live mouse or bird or something. and i'd like to get a kitten of my own, you know? i'm tired of being the youngest around here.

anyway, hope you celebrated my birthday this year - and if anyone out there is my age, or even older, then i'd be happy to hear any advice about what to expect in my fourth year of being a cat.

morning vignettes

i look out my window onto a grey morning. a bird flits by. a light breeze blows a branch around, and it catches my attention. but i am not interested in the branch, and turn back toward the spot where i saw that bird. but in the process of doing so, the top of the curtain brushes against my fur, and it startles me.

and so i decide to attack the curtain, and see what happens. i claw and bite at it, and find this fairly amusing. but it's a little too much activity for this early in the morning, especially since i have been play fighting with my brother punch this morning. oh, and speaking of him, he has wandered back into the bedroom, and has found a spot to rest on the pillow next to melissa's head. he looks so peaceful there, with his paws on her hair. if i were the type of cat that liked the closeness of people, i would surely sleep there sometimes.

but i'm not, so it's back to the curtain i was in the process of destroying. after this, punch and i will see about getting our food bowls replenished, and nap on our respective couches.
