Have you always wondered what it would be like to live as
a cat for a day? What's it like to live la vida Mocha?
Lucky for you, I keep a diary! Here's what yesterday was
6:30am Sat next to my
owner's head as she slept. Stared at her in the hope of
waking her up. All she did was flop over. Walked over to
the window and tapped the mini blinds with my paw several
times. Dodged flying stuffed animal. I think it was a
Pooh Bear. Banged on the mini blind some more.
6:45am My owner's alarm
clock went off. Finally! I was starving! Ran over to
the side of her bed and meowed loudly. Followed her to
the bathroom hoping she would
feed me. Waited patiently while she used the big water
bowl. Followed her down the stairs weaving in and out of
her legs as a warning not to keep me waiting again like
breakfast. Licked whiskers and bathed.
7:05am I didn't feel very
clean. So, I bathed again.
7:10am Went back up the
stairs to watch my owner prepare for work. She goes
through such long rituals. I am still not sure why she
likes standing in that box with water squirting on her.
But I like to watch her through the glass doors.
8:00am Jumped up onto the
kitty perch in the window sill for my morning nap. There
is a nice view from that window...but..it was hard..to
11:30am My nap was
refreshing, but I was hungry again. Went downstairs for a
light snack. Munched on some crunchy food. I love the
kind with the seafood middles! MMMMMMMMMM
11:35am Licked whiskers
11:40am Caught glipse of a
mouse. Stalked it and pounced! MMMMMMMMM cat nip odor!
Flipped it around the room a little. Sister cat saw the
mouse and stalked it too. Well, my fun is over. She
- 1:00 pm Took nap on couch.
1:05pm Used litter box.
Scratched 50 gillion times until everything was properly
buried. Sister cat watched. I felt so violated.
- 4:00pm Took a nap on top of the Kitty condo.
4:05pm Got hungry. Kept a
lookout in window sill on the kitty perch looking for
owner to come home and feed me.
4:10pm Sneak attack
launched by sister cat. Wrestled her to the ground until
she meowed uncle. Bit her again just out of spite.
4:30pm Back in the window
to wait. Fell asleep waiting.
5:00pm Heard car in
driveway. Oh it's not her. It's my other owner. He
doesn't feed me using my favorite bowl. I will wait until
SHE comes home.
5:30pm Heard another car
in the driveway. It's her! It's her! Rushed to door and
waited for her entrance.
5:31pm Greeted my owner
with a heart felt meow. Followed her to kitchen and
begged for dinner. I was starving.
5:35pm Ate dinner
5:45pm Licked whiskers
5:55pm Got lucky, owner
let me outside onto the balcony to catch a breeze. Stuck
my nose in the air and sniffffffffffed. It was lovely.
6:00pm Came back inside
and took a nap on the kitty condo.
9:00pm Sat at back door
and looked outside. I wondered what it would be like to
be outside. To be a jungle cat. To be fierce. To be.....
<<ear perk>> what was THAT noise???? Ran
upstairs and hid under the bed.
9:30pm Owner went to bed.
Jumped up and layed at her feet. Tried to watch TV with
her...but it was...too ....hard... to ... stay
