Quick Peek!

Quite some time ago, I acquired my very first cat, and it has been a roller coaster ride ever since. I've always been fascinated by these mercurial creatures, and I love watching them, so it was only natural that when they started showing up here, I would want to keep them around.  At one point, we had four cats in this house, and thus achieved coveted Crazy Cat Lady status.  These days, the count is down to two very different cats, Pounce and Zena.  These two lovelies share a profound dislike of each other, and that is about it.  These are their thoughts on a routine day.


"Zzzzzzzzz--What is coming up the stairs?  Is that the boy? Run! Hide!" 

"What was that noise? Is that a bird? Run! Hide! Hide!"

"ACK!!  You found me!  Run somewhere else! Hide!"

"Pet me.  No, feed me.  No, pet me--and then feed me."

"Is that a speck of dust on my paw?  It must be cleaned, then cleaned again.  And cleaned once more, for good measure." 

"You must pet me NOW or I will lick all the skin off this side of your face."

"What was that noise? Is that another cat?  Hide--no--Run!"


"I wonder if I can leap from the top of these cabinets to the island where the treats are?  I think I can!"

"This door is closed. I must be on the other side NOW"

"What is that?  Ooooh! I must catch it and throw it about until it no longer moves."

"This door is closed. I must be on the other side NOW."

"What is that noise? Aggghh!  It's another cat!  Run! Hide!"

"What is that? Can I play with it? Can I hit it? Can I eat it? No?  Not interested..."

"The use of the Pythagorean theorem in this regard is--Hey! Shiny!" 

Mamakat's Marvelous prompt: 4.) List 7 things your pet thought about today. 


  1. AWWW! How cute! Silly kitties!

  2. Ah ha! that is so funny... sounds just what they would be saying, even to owners. I enjoyed that one. Best regards to you. Ruby aka Grammy

  3. Mama Kat had some good prompts this week, I had a hard time choosing. Pets are the best.

  4. Very cute! Their different personalities come through. What a riot it must be to watch cats. I have dogs which I love but they aren't as fascinating as kitties, I suspect.

  5. I am totally a cat person so I LOVED this!!!! We are currently cat-less at the moment but going to get some kittens soon. I can't wait.

    Stopped by from Mama Kat's. :)

  6. It sounds like you are describing both of my cats. We adopted two cats when I was in college. My husband started looking for more strays to bring in, so it's a good thing we moved. Of course, then we got two dogs and now two kids. A couple more cats might have been easier.

  7. Very entertaining. I always imagine that our pooch is regarding me with a Roger Moore inspired raised eyebrow. :) xx

  8. My cat is like your Pounce. She adores my daughter but she runs and hides at the first sign of my sons!

  9. Cats crack me up! I'm afraid to think what mine think!
