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.

    i am a small kitten, but already have started hunting butterflies,today I danced in the small lawn of the neighbor dog who was fast asleep under the mango tree shade But the dog's companion ,the fat human lady,became so excited and started taking snaps that I had to quit just after hunting a few insects!. emoticon

    This is great! I was picturing my cat saying the same things about me. Especially about the laptop. When I spend hours on Spark People, she is so determined that she will have my attention that she lays on my chest right under my chin.

    What a beautiful blue.

Smudge and I agree that our human spends too much time on the laptop & not enough time napping on the bed. Worse yet is that she brings her school books onto our bed and takes up our napping space with all the books and the book bag. Smudge likes to sleep on our human and can't do that the lap is full of books.

    Hmm...your cat sounds suspiciously like MY cat. Very haughty. And queen of the castle. Indeed.

    I totally understand what you are saying! My girl princess thinks she is just that a princess. When I am busy with my laptop she noses her way onto my lap as well! If I am not accessible she will wheedle her way onto my brother in laws lap. So demanding and deserving of our attention!

    My little dog used to complain about me as well! Mean fur-children - after all we do for them. They could have been raised by gypsies. Oh wait, they'd probably like that. New places, new smells, new people.... hmmmmmm..
