Here I am, ready to write my story!
Have you ever noticed humans do weird things?
For instance, one day I strolled through a room and saw the older human with her back paws in a tub of water. She said she was soaking her feet. Why would you want to deliberately keep your back paws in water for awhile?? You know, I’m a cat and I’m smart, but that’s beyond me.
Later, I walked into another room and saw her with her back paws propped up on a stand. She said she was trimming her toenails. Again, I was perplexed. I mean, to trim my claws I scratch something rough (like the couch—ssh, don’t tell the humans I live with!)
Sometimes the younger human calls me “The Big A”. That I don’t mind. But then she adds, “Wild and hairy”. “Hairy?” Well, yes, I am “hairy”, or as I prefer, “furry”. I have a medium-length coat, and I’m proud of it, too! I am NOT wild, though! It’s been a long time since I’ve been wild, and I don’t want to go back to those days. Now, I have shelter out of the rain, the wind, and whatever else. No dogs, raccoons, or coyotes live in the house. No cars come in the house, either. I have food, water, and two litter boxes available. I have toys to play with, two humans to answer my beck and meow, and plenty of places to sleep. (Just don’t mention to the younger human that one of those places is the printer beside the computer. It’ll be our secret, right?)
Oh, I digress. As I said, have you ever noticed humans do weird things? And humans think cats do weird things!
