A Strange Creature, Indeed
Originally posted on my HSB blog, July 28, 2008 at 4:52 PMHi everyone,
I "helped" my cat Tux post an entry on the blog that he shares with my other cat, Chessie. I thought that this was one of the most creative entries I've done from the perspective of my pet, so I wanted to share with you.
Well, it's Tux. For once, I've been doing something other than sleeping & eating.
We have a new human in the house. Her name is *Muffin*, and she's 7 months old. My owners watch over her while her parents work.
*Muffin* can sometimes get annoying, especially when she chases after me! Chessie, for once, is reassuring me. She says that it is normal, and that I should be patient with "the little thing". Where did Chessie learn that, anyway? Maybe it's true... but I can't handle the thought of her getting her slobber on me. At least she can't pull my tail!
Anyway, *Muffin* has been chasing me a lot lately! It seems like every day she comes, she gets faster. My owners call it "crawling". I guess I'm helping them, because every time she sees me, she tries to scoot over to me. All my owners do is just watch in anticipation, and then cheer when *Muffin* reaches me. I don't know why they don't help me get away from "that little thing".
*Muffin* has other odd habits as well. She makes noises that I've never heard before, and she makes them at the most inopportune moments. She, as well as her stuff, has a strange smell, and sometimes she gets stinky. She doesn't walk, and seems to be lazy because my owners carry her around all the time. She scatters toys where I want to sleep. She eats an unfamiliar white liquid from a strange contraption (Chessie says it's a bottle. Again, where DOES she learn this stuff?)
*Muffin* = A Strange Creature, Indeed.
