After spending the day in careful observation, I’ve come to the conclusion that I may in fact be a cat. Two of Trish’s new roommates are of the furry feline variety and since all the humans had to go to work today, I had plenty of time to hangout with them.
First, I noticed that the cats and I are both the most energetic early in the morning. Today, I woke up at 6:30 for no reason and was too awake to go back to bed. However, around 10:30 that energy starts to wear off and we’re ready to settle into the first of many naps. There was a little bit of a power struggle to see who was gonna get the sunny spot on the bed, but we managed to work it out. Around 11:15, we hear a noise on the stairs so we go and investigate. Realizing it’s just another roommate, we quickly say hello, grab a snack and head back to bed. This trend basically continued until the humans came home.
There are lots of other things I noticed we have in common as well. Both the cats enjoy being pet and cuddled, but once they are over that they swat your hand away. This is a strategy that I have definitely used before. Also, we both possess remarkable abilities to be able to fall asleep anywhere and everywhere, regardless of what is going on around us. I appreciate that there is a distinct difference in their personalities when it is playtime versus when it is time to relax, a dichotomy that is also evident in my personality. Similiarly, cats have no qualms about expressing their feelings. When they’re content, the purr. They meow when concerned, and find ways to make it painfully clear when they are displeased. Both these cats and I prefer to be at home where we’re comfortable, but don’t mind an outdoor adventure every once in awhile. And finally, though I could probably think of infinitely more similarities, we both get unnaturally distracted by laser pointers.
As you can plainly see based on the evidence above, there is a very high possibility that my whole life has been a lie and that I am actually a cat. Mum and Pops, if you’re reading this I think it’s time we had a chat…
