What can I say about myself? Well, I’m charming, witty, sophisticated and quite a good-looking fellow, as you can tell. I think I’m three years old, but honestly, I look much younger. I’m lazy sometimes—well, more likely bored out of my mind—and I like to sleep all day. I lived on the streets for a little while until I got trapped; I guess humans can’t stand seeing a cat walking around without a collar around his neck. I was put in a cage in a shelter, and I hoped that someone would get me out of there.
The food was horrible, and being around hundreds of cats complaining about the living conditions was quite depressing. One afternoon, a guy came to visit me; he came back a week later and brought me to his home. Finally I was free, out of the metal cage!
He was like me: he slept all day and was up all night. I have to say, it was quite nice to have someone taking care of me. He fed me when I was hungry; he played with me when I felt like it. We became very good friends.
Sadly, he left, and he won’t be back till the end of the summer. I guess he’s going to be an intern for the summer at a company called Google. He’s in Seattle, and I’m here in New Hampshire. So he left me with a middle-aged woman who has no clue how to take care of a cat. You see, she owns two dogs, one who weighs over a hundred pounds and the other one around forty. I had moved with them six months ago, and let me tell you, it was quite an adjustment! The little dog, Deuce, doesn’t leave me alone for a second, and the big one, Daisy, well, she’s okay with me but sometimes she likes to sniff me for hours. It’s quite annoying.
So the middle-aged woman is trying to show me tricks and is treating me like a dog. I can assure you that she was unsuccessful about trying to teach me how to sit. I am sure that she thinks that I’m a little slow, but I refuse to act like a dog. I do whatever whenever. Her job for the summer is to take pictures of ME every day so my friend can see that I’m still in one piece.
If you are a cat lover, before I go mad please send her comments on how to care for a cat. Any good advice would be deeply appreciated.
