Earlier this year, my daughter Rose and I attended a two week meditation retreat and left our cute Burmese kitten Prince George with my husband Chris who is unused to having to attend to his needs and keep him entertained. During this time, Chris wrote the Cat Dairies and emailed them to us each day. This is the final in the series, and it’s written from George’s perspective.
Second CAT WEDNESDAY
I snuck in at 5am. He was snoring loudly so he didn’t notice me creep down under the doona. I think he realised I was there when I snuggled in behind his knees but he was too asleep to kick me out. We both slept in so I didn’t have to wake him to get my breakfast. He’s always so grumpy when I do that. Lucky I wasn’t really hungry though because he gave me that fishy stuff. I didn’t eat it till much later, and only because I don’t get any bikkies till it’s finished.
We had expected it to rain but luckily it was sunny and warm so I spent all day outside. Got to explore the woodshed and knocked some pieces of wood off the pile which hit the wheelbarrow with a loud thump and got him off his computer to investigate. Good tactic to remember to get attention. Not very good at remembering things though. Went out by the pond, chased a few lizards but all in all it was a pretty uneventful day. Afternoon nap in the shrine room lasted till dark so I missed my walk. Damn!
Wonder what he’s got for me tonight for dinner. Hope it’s not chicken! Guess I’ll just hassle him a bit to get a game later on. It’s easy to do that when he’s on the computer. I just sit on the keyboard and he finds it very hard to ignore me. Hope the girls come home soon, I miss them.
