"Let Me Introduce Myself" by The Cat That Would Be Heard
My name is Theodore (though the family has always called me Teddy) Really now, do I look like a teddy to you? In my experience, teddies are for small children and dogs to carry around. Nevertheless, I am 19 years of age in cat years. In human years that makes me 92.
Why would an old geezer like me want to try his paw at writing, you may ask?
Well aside from eating, taking small walks outside and sleeping more than I used to, and the occasional margarita, I`ve become interested in this blogging thing that`s been keeping my mistress so busy lately. I`ve decided to call my writings "by the cat that would be heard" due to never being heard through these long years. Much to my chagrin, I`ve been blessed with a very soft voice. Most times, unfortunately, my mouth will open and nothing, absolutely nothing comes out. Terribly humiliating. The only way of coping was to tear my way in and out of the house through the screen. Unpleaseant, but how else is one to handle such a situation? It upset the mistress to the point where she put this wonderful flap in the window for self serve. Lovely woman!
Life just hasn`t been what it used to be though. No more romping through the grass and sneaking throught the field to catch mice or the odd bird. What joy that brought to me. But alas, I`m afraid those days are over.
I did fool the master and mistress though, a few weeks ago. They think I caught a baby rabbit and brought it into the house through the cat flap. Ha! It was actually Angus who found that prize, but the little fellow got away from him.
I thought it would be jolly good fun to chase it and make it look like it was mine. One still has some pride you know.
Yes, Angus will be taking over for me one day and I must get after that boy from time to time. He tends to be slightly on the dopey side you know.
Well, I`ve tired myself out getting up in this chair, so I shall say hasta que satisfacemos otra vez, or until we meet again.
If anyone is interested, the below link is where I found my human age.
