She's rubbish, you know


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, April 12, 2013



This female human we live with. She forgot to start spring this year so we went back into hibernation. She's also useless at remembering to feed us. Just how difficult is it to open a can of Whiskas when asked, hm? No we can't do it ourselves, we haven't got the thumbs. If mice had ringpulls, we'd have evolved with thumbs. Natural selection. As it is, we've trained humans instead.

Her behaviour wants some attention. The week before last, she didn't come in till 11.30 in the evening. Not a word about where she'd been, either. Last summer and again early this year, there was a succession of men making loud noises in her bedroom with their tools. Yes, really. Disgraceful. When we moved in, we're pretty certain she signed a contract saying it was just her and us.

Honestly, it won't do.

Thirteen years we've been putting up with this and she is getting worse not better. It's important to us to mark our territory outdoors. Whose garden is it? Exactly. Stop complaining about the smell, even if it is on your washing.

She's got thinner, recently. Not nearly as comfortable to sit on. We thought we'd soften her up by drooling a bit but she only gets ratty (cat pun). She spends hours on that laptop that she should be spending with us. Once we work out where the 'on' switch is, it's history.

Just watch us.

PS: she wishes us to add that she had damp in the bedroom last year and a malfunctioning boiler in February and these required investigation and remedial work.

Really.

    This blog was a great read the first time, & I had to come back and look at the picture, because I read about Percy on your other blog. This picture is him, right? I am so sorry he can't have the rest of the spring in your garden - that you can't have him in your garden for the rest of the spring.

  GREAT - my children call me "The Crazy Cat Lady" - I talk to my cats (in their language) and they are quite demanding. They do NOT like it when I am late for dinner, nor on the weekends when I sleep late (all the way to 6 am) because breakfast is LATE!!!!!

    I know these rescued felines think they have a rough life. They have more furniture in this house than I do! And does that stop them from sitting in my seat on the couch?

Nope, nope, nope.

And why should they have to tell the human that they need attention and NOW? How dumb can they be?

Sudden scuffle at the keyboard, as hairbag takes over keyboard.....

"I remind them that I'm here and thinking of them by coughing up the occasional "kitty sweater" for them to step on! moohahahaha! "

"Meow for now!" emoticon

    Enjoyed the story - makes me remember my kittys when I had them. We have a dog that does the same sort of things....... always wonder what is she thinking.

    I dont have a cat, but my dog barked at me last night when I came home because she was ready for dinner, she's a tiny little thing. I can't imagine what she must have been thinking. A fun read, thanks for sharing!

    I had to laugh! We translate for our cat all the time. We think she is saying things like, "Stupid human! Can't you see my bowl is empty? You just can't get good help anymore!

    Had me laughing out loud, again! Can't imagine what my cats have to say about me sometimes, though I can guess by the looks I get. Thankfully the dog is always around to make me feel like a good mommy.

    Poor Kittys, perhaps a lap pillow for her next birthday? Then at least you will be comfy.
