Sorry Mom, But That Centipede Was Just Too Tempting To Leave- Alone

I know that you presented a compelling argument (see June 4th entry), and that we agreed (well, you agreed) that I would leave them alone, and I honestly tried to live up to my (only partially coerced) promise, but can I help it if it decided to invade my domain? At least I didn’t try to eat it. Right? Moreover, I’m sorry if I woke you at 5:00 am, but it was getting away and I couldn’t resist trying to whack it with my paw one more time. Is it my fault that I had to jump two feet high to reach it? I also feel bad that in the second that you turned around to get the Black Flag House & Garden Bug Killer (even though I’ve heard you lecture about the sanctity of life for ALL living creatures more than once) the mysterious (and quicker than you can say "Where did it go?") centipede vanished. I understand if it left you in a right tizzy about its whereabouts; because of course, you were concerned that it might crawl into your bed, if it hadn’t already done so. I apologize for all of that, really, but don’t you think that the blame is entirely yours? Isn’t it only fair that you recognize and accept my perfectly natural inclinations? Don’t you try to do that for your fellow human beings as well? Silly mom. I see that I still have much to teach you.

Mom says I am one of today’s featured diaries. How cool is that!? I’m not sure I deserve this honour, but I sure am going to take it! I like writing as much as my mom does (between you and me I’m the better writer in the family, but don’t tell her that as she gets so SENSITIVE at times – thankfully that’s one trait I didn’t inherit), and plan to do much more! Who knows, I might even become famous!

I’m going to take a well-deserved catnap now....

(Hey Scooter, glad you had fun on your trip!)

 

Mom Says I Can't Eat Centipedes

Can you believe it? I thought it was a bit mean of her, but apparently she saw a HUGE one (at least two inches long!) in the bathroom last night, and it brought back unpleasant memories that she thought she had successfully suppressed. It seems that my predecessor, Adrian Mole, had quite the predilection for the many-legged creatures, and would often be caught munching on them. Gross! Well, that’s what mom says. In fact, she says it’s the grossest thing she’s ever seen, and went to a great deal of trouble explaining to me why she thought I should just leave them alone. She also added that if she ever caught me with one dangling from my mouth, she would not let me lick her for a full week! Personally, I think they’re amusing to watch, and probably full of healthy protein too. I’ve never tasted them myself per se, but if that other cat liked them, they can’t be that bad. Still, as she rightfully pointed out, I can play with other things, and I never go hungry, so maybe I should just leave the buggers alone. Okay mom, you win!

My mom just told me that she loves me more than any other cat, and that she always will. She's actually told me this many times before, but I always like to act surprised. She then gave me belly kisses, and I purred as loudly as I could to let her know that I love her too!

Help! Even though my mom has me listed as at least partially Russian Blue, I’m not sure that I am. She’s not either, but someone had told her that I looked as if I could be, so voilà, that’s what she decided I was. But, what if I’m something else? What if I’m a shorthair something-or-other? How would I even know if I were British, European, or American? Mom says it doesn’t matter what breed I am, and that even if I were no breed at all she would still love me because I’m the most loveable kitty in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD. That’s nice, and I appreciate the sentiment, but she knows her nationality, and I would like to know mine. Can anyone tell me by looking at my pictures? If not, how else could I find out?

Oh, and I haven’t told her, but I’m definitely heavier than 12 pounds. I won’t get on the weigh scale for her, and luckily, mom hasn’t figured out that all she has to do is weigh herself on the scale while holding me, and then subtract her weight from the total. Silly mom. And if she ever does clue in, I just won’t let her hold me! Tee hee. Nobody needs to know my real weight—I've been through enough. Don't you think?

 

Thank You

I would just like to thank all you nice Catster cats who have agreed to become friends with me. My mom tried to assure me that I would make some online friends soon, but I wasn’t sure at all. As she will tell you, I’m not the bravest cat in the world, and after she brought that other cat into the house who just ended up terrorizing me (I probably shouldn’t admit this because now you’ll think I’m the wimpiest cat ever, but the cat in question was actually a very brazen and self-assured four-week-old kitten), I didn’t think I would ever make any friends. Thankfully, all of you have proven me wrong, and I feel much better about myself!
