I Am Cat……Hear Me Roar

imageedit_6_8427436381Mom was laughing at me tonight.  She and I were sitting in the front room watching a little TV.  No, I have no idea where Steinbeck was.  He was probably running through the house like a mad cat, messing up all the rugs.

Anyway, back to me.  I had been sitting on Mom’s lap and we had been discussing the day.  Then I jumped down so I could roll on the floor and show her my tummy.  (She always likes to give me tummy rubs.)

Suddenly I saw a shadow go by the front window!  I sat up and growled!!

That’s when Mom started laughing.  She told me I had been spending too much time with the dogs who live behind and beside us.  She told me I was a kitty and not a dog.  Duh!  I know that!  Silly human.

I paid no attention to her.  I slowly walked over by the front door so I could look outside and see what made the shadow.  I growled some more and Mom laughed some more.

Then she finally got up and went to look.  Turns out a Boy Scout (not a Cat Scout) had left a flyer on the outside door handle and I could see it flopping around in the wind so even though no humans were at the door, I still had to growl.  You just never know what that piece of paper might do!

So I ask you…………don’t you all think Mom should be ashamed for laughing at her very own black and white alarm system??  How many other humans have such a unique thing in their house????

I rest my case……….and my body!

  1. You deserve an apology and treats for being an exceptional guard cat. Sawyer is a champion growler, and some others of us do it as well. It’s a good sound to have in our arsenal. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  2. True, it might be waiting for some innocent person to walk by, then…, POW! A nasty paper cut! You did the right thing to growl a warning, Hemingway. Paper cuts are nasty and hurt like heck!

  3. I think that your Mom should truly appreciate that she has a GUARD CAT in the house who alerts her to things that aren’t QUITE right! Good for you! That deserves an EXTRA tummy rub.

    Love, Teddy

  5. Hemmy, you did good. Oscar, my old boy, and Peaches, my rescue who has PTSD, are both champion growlers. Not just at introoders though – they growl at ALL of us. So it is good you are a bit more selective.

Purrs, meows, barks, chirps and human comments are greatly appreciated. We love hearing from our readers.
