Severian's Monologues

I hate being the middle child

You know, it was kind of working out here as my elder sibs, Jasper and Onyx, got longer in the tooth. Or fewer in the tooth, as the case may be. I was never able to dislodge Jasper as alpha cat -- still can't, in fact -- but we sort of worked out a coalition government. I figured I'd outlast him, and Onyx doesn't have much interest in politics, so I'd finally get to be top cat.

But now we have these newbies. Victoria is definitely not a threat. What a girly-girl! But Bear ... now Bear is a real game-changer. I mean, he's only 10 months old and he already outweighs me by five pounds.

So far he doesn't seem to have the fire in the belly to be king of the mountain. When I offer a challenge -- a little right hook, a little up-on-the-hind-legs razzle-dazzle -- he thinks I want to play. He throws himself on his back, puts up his paws and gives me this "Yeh! Let's wrestle!" look. What a dope.

Sigh. Why is my life so complicated?
