OK, cats. Now, I’m going to finally tell you more about the secret world outside of my window. Today, I’m going to talk about the cats that I am friends with. Naturally, Mom doesn’t have a clue about this. I have typed about some of them before, but I want to tell you more about them. Here are the names and descriptions of the cats I talk to the most:
Herb: Herb is a good looking cat, and he knows it! He has beautiful ebony fur like I do. And, he knows how to sweet-talk a girl. So, it’s no wonder that I thought of him first! Herb is one of those cats who like it outside. He says he loves his freedom, but I think he likes to be free to flirt with all of the female cats in our neighborhood. He’s funny too. He says things to me like, “Come away with me, Grace. I will show you a new world and love you forever.” When he says that, I just laugh at him. My experience with a smooth-talking tomcat taught me not to believe in promises like that. However, when Herb’s not hitting on me, we have some really nice talks 🙂 And yes, I like to flirt with him. I’m fixed, not dead!
Trixie: Trixie is a beautiful black and white cat, who has a home and gets to go outside. She is my best friend. We gossip about the other cats and humans in the neighborhood. And, we laugh about the silly things that our humans do. Best of all, we figure out how to make our humans do what we want. I love her, but I don’t like it when she flirts with Herb!
Angelina: Angelina is a pretty calico cat, and she’s nice too. She’s another cat who has a home, but is allowed to go outside. Angelina has a way of coming along when I need her the most, including the times when I get into fights with Mom. She always gives me good advice, and talks me out of clawing Mom in the face. Sometimes I think Angelina is a cat angel!
That Hussy: That Hussy is what I call that mean female cat who invades my territory. She thinks she’s all that because she’s beige. She says things to me like, “I’m going to steal your Mom’s heart. Then, I’ll have a home, and you won’t!” Also, she gets me in trouble because when I yowl my responses to her, Mom tells me to shut up. Worst of all, she flirts with Herb. I just wanted to mention her because she is a part of my life. I wish I could call Animal Control and have them take her away—forever.
Callie the Kitten: Callie is a brown tabby kitten whose humans abandoned her. She lives in an empty house down the street. She is cute, so some humans feed her. No one has given her a home though 🙁 She can be naive, so all of us cats in the neighborhood look out for her. I give her advice, and try to let her know that God loves her. She doesn’t always believe me, though, because He hasn’t answered her prayer for a home of her own yet. I understand how she feels, because I was that lost and lonely kitten. I hope and pray that she’ll get a home soon.
Priscilla the Pest (Cilly): Priscilla is a very pretty orange cat. Unfortunately, she is a Drama Cat. So, she whines about everything. She comes over at least ten times a day to tell me about her latest “crisis”. She’s not all bad, so sometimes I talk to her. However, there are times when I have to hide because I can’t stand to listen to her whining anymore!
There are a lot more cats that I talk to, but these are the main cats in my life. I will be telling you more about our adventures in later posts. Now I’d like to hear from you. Do you have secret relationships with the cats outside of your window? If you do, what are they like? Also, could someone please tell me how I can tell Priscilla to “Shut up” without hurting her feelings?!
