My Literary Return
Finally! My chance to stretch my literary paws once again. My human secretary has been very lax lately and lost enthusiasm for supporting my literary endeavours online. I have chastised her many times on her lack of motivation – in between naps that is.
The weather here in New Zealand has started to cool a little bit, so I have once again taken up my favorite cool season passtime of chasing sunbeams around the house. My human complains that she knows where I have been based on the piles of fur caught in the carpet. Surely she knows that I am just fortifying the fibres in the carpet by graciously donating my excess fur to the cause. People pay a lot of money for the shagpile effect.
The grumpy male human is away for the weekend, so I have been sleeping with my main human uninterrupted. It's wonderful to have the whole bed to myself....er I mean... just for us. The male human insists on taking up so much space in our bed. For some reason he insists that I should move to make room for him to stretch his legs! What about mine? I so love stretching out full length on my human and purring in her face. She spends an acceptable amount of time scratching my head until I almost drool with pleasure. I don't see why she can't keep it up all day, but I suppose she does have to get up sometime to feed me.
The male human insists that I am noisy and that I'm keeping him awake. Does he not understand and appreciate the soothing lullaby of a full body feline purr? He also does not appreciate my attempts to wake a servant gently for an early morning snack. He keeps saying that it is still the middle of the night and then he has the nerve to throw a pillow at me! Last week I had to judicously retreat downstairs and wait until my human came down to soothe my ruffled fur and coax me into the kitchen for a snack. Does he not appreciate my discretion? After all I could have just sat downstairs and yelled at them – but I am too polite for that.
Sigh – I don't know how long it is going to take to train him properly in feline etiquette, but I still have a lot of work to do with that one. Time to find a quiet sunny spot to meditate on my next step.
