Thoughts About Growing Up…

Here's a picture of us when we were little.

When will we be grown up?

I don’t know.  I’ll be two in December.  Maybe that’s grown-up.  Why are you asking about that?

Well, sometimes I hear humans talking about what they want to be when they grow up.


Well, won’t they still be humans?  I mean when I grow up I’m still a cat.

That’s not what they are talking about.  Humans usually get jobs and start earning money when they grow up.  Often that means they have to go to school longer to learn more things about their specific job.

Like the doctor lady?


I think you should be a symphony conductor.


I’ve heard they wear “tails” and they are usually dressed in black and white.  You’re all set for that.  Besides, you like music.

Your tail is bigger.  Maybe you should be a conductor.

But my tail isn’t black and I like it the way it is.  I think I’ll be a chef ‘cuz I like food so much.

Well I’m glad we got that figured out.  How come it sometimes takes humans so long to decide what they want to be when they grow up?

Maybe they just don’t want to grow up.  Have you seen my catnip toy?
