Woman vs. Cat

I have a cat, named Cally. She is a "tortie" with an attitude, and it seems that as she gets older, she gets more and more brazen and weird. I love her, and she's been a part of my life for about 15 years, but lately the battle of Woman vs. Cat has escalated.

The most recent offenses:
-barfing on the bed
-no longer making the effort to bury poops in litterbox
-stealing half of my sandwich off the coffee table
-passing a hairball on the brand-new loveseat
-begging for food constantly

Everyone who has a cat knows that this kind of behavior just comes with the territory. From the moment you open your eyes, you're fair game.

My friend JM sent me a bunch of haikus (written from a cat's perspective) that had me rolling with laughter. If you're a cat owner, I'm pretty sure these will hit close to home for you too!

You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
That will sure show you.

You must scratch me there!
Yes, above my tail!
Behold, elevator butt.

In deep sleep hear sound
cat vomit hairball somewhere
will find in morning.

You're always typing.
Well, let's see you ignore my
sitting on your hands.

Small brave carnivores
Kill pine cones and mosquitoes,
Fear vacuum cleaner

I want to be close
to you. Can I fit my head
inside your armpit?

Wanna go outside.
Oh, poop! Help! I got outside!
Let me back inside!


  1. BAHAHA! Those are great! I haven't had a cat for a long time, but I'm really thinking of getting one again... I just want to make sure I spend enough time with her and that someone can take care of her if I go home.

  2. Cats are so much easier than dogs, and they are great companions! Cally has been my buddy forever. That being said, older cats require a little extra care/attention. When Cally was younger, I could leave her with food/water/a clean box for an ENTIRE WEEK while I went on a trip. Now I only leave her for a 4-day weekend.
