Lesson from Parker





She can't be cajoled or ordered. Not gonna happen. She'll accept your gifts and favor, but no amount of charm will move her to answer your demands or pleas. And when you forget, you get the look. Translation: “Look fool, I don't do tricks. Look at the bright side; I won't sniff your crotch or hump your leg either.” Then she saunters off.

  3. Yes, this has to be a cat! I've decided that naming them is just for our benefit. If I'm lucky, they *might* raise their head and look at me if I call them :)

  10. We had sisters for a few years. One died. The other, Patches cracks us up. She's older now and having health issues. I worry how Mister will take it when she passes.

  13. Hahaha. I don't know how anything can stand those things. I certainly can't. But I am NOT an animal person.

  14. Haha! That's why I'm a dog person. I could do without the crotch sniffing and leg humping, though.

    Very realistic cat POV!

  15. Ivy took the words right out of my mouth! I like cats, but I've always had dogs. On the other hand, I don't necessarily like ALL dogs...I'll never gets used to having canine advances toward my leg or any other part of me;)

    Great piece of writing!

  18. So perfect, and that last line just cements the image! This is what I love about cats - they belong to nobody but themselves. Nicely done.
