I Am A Cat You Expect Way To Much From Me

Updated on April 26, 2012

I Am Not All Bad

Yes I have my creative side

Then I am curious about everything

I do get in more trouble than most cats my age

That is because I have an owner that watches me like a hawk

My every move is recorded by video or that damn camera

I would break it if I could

I try to sleep and all I see is a flash in my eyes

Wow if that isn't an eye opener

How would you like to dangle upside down ?

Holding on for dear life

Your lovely owner says get the camera

He won't fall

Yes I will

I have been holding on for two hours strong

You finally came home late I might add

Then you run right by me to go pee

Yes I have done some stuff that I am not proud of

By if you watch t.v. I am close to harmless

I don't carry guns or say nasty words against other people

No threatning letters

I don't drive

I don't drink

I can never drink and drive

I sit home all alone

Playing games with all my make believe friends

The shadow on the walls or a bug you let in

When something breaks I get blamed

Alright I am not completely innocent

The lamp was old and the shade was crooked

Yes I scratched at it more than once

But you never seen me break it

It just fell on its own

I think it committed suicide

It has seen two much t.v.

All the bad shows and the violence that you watch

It couldn't take any more

So now we have the plant in he middle of the kitchen floor

Now that is a little harder to explain

It was lonely in the corner

It asked to be moved

So I helped it so gently

A little dirt did have to come with the mess

But to me the plant looked happier with its roots free

Then there is the toilet paper roll in the bathroom torn to shreds

I confess

I did that

But if you heard all the dirty jobs the roll complained about constantly

You would of did the same as me

It had it coming

It said some not nice things about you

Like it always has to clean up the mess that you left

You hardly ever spray

The smells are stinky and ooh it really is aweful

You walk away while I am here left all alone

Well it is time for your cat to sleep

You and your wife to go to sleep

But at any time during the night you expect me to roll right out of bed

Help you when you need me the most

A cats life is one that very few people see

If you were only ten inches tall

See how much you would be bullied and picked on

Now you know what I go through

I have a few hang ups that I am working them out

But no matter what I do

I will be yours till the end of time

      I never did think of the cat perspective, back when I had cats as pets! They seemed to communicate their feelings quite successfully, but I never really got it clear until I read this Hub! Great work! Voted up, funny and awesome. Be happy!

      Nat Amarai I hope I made you laugh.Cats are full of life and surprises.Each day is a day trip.Special in one way or another.My cat is staring me down.I wonder what my cat is thinking now.Have a beautiful day.joanveronica I had other cats and like you they were nice and sometimes wild.Now I think I understand them a little better.It only took twenty years.I am such a fast learner.Even if I get them all wrong they will make you laugh and help wipe away the tears and sadness in life.They bring out the joy of being alive and just want to be loved.Thanx for reading and sharing bits and pieces of my life.

      I really enjoyed hearing your cat doing some venting. He must be feeling much better now that he got some issues off his chest. I hit every button on this sweet hub. Hope all is well my friend :-)

      katyzzz The comment was there and disappeared.Now it is back marked not spam.I had to click a few times then it went through.I love cats and I think they are mans best friend.Unlike a dog they don't have to be walked,can go in a litter box and are independent.They are fast and can catch a fly and a mouse.They see the littlest thing and are tuned in to hear the softest sound.I love them so much.Have a great day.

      Dim Flaxenwick From a cats view people are all like Donald Trump the more we own the more we want.Where my poor little cat gets less and less.Lucky to get clean litter and some crummy cat food.Keep smiling and have a fun day.
