See The World Through My Eyes

Updated on February 7, 2013

My Oh My What A Wonderful World I See

I don't own it and I live so happy and carefree

You take on all the responsibility of all the bills and the mortgage

I give you a leg rub in return

My food is left out for me when I am hungry

I look forward to eating it and I make sure I clean my dish

Sometimes I will eat a little and come back later to finish

You give me a fresh bowl of water every day

I am not a big water drinker and I rather play

You tell me to drink it down

I know it is good for me and you have gone through all this trouble

It is so good when it is cold and quenches my thirst once again.

You let me lay on the bed,chair,floor,couch and even on the bookcase once and awhile

I know I go other places and you tell me to get down

I want to walk across the counter and the table and across the bureau inbetween all the pictures and the lamp

I just need a little more room to move around don't you think?

Then there are some special days where I sleep my day away

You leave me early and come home late and I am still in the same spot

Curled in a ball my paws tucked in under my legs or belly

You leave classical music on every afternoon so I can listen and admire

I find it quite relaxing and so peaceful

I don't have to deal with rush hour traffic or car payments or automotive bills

Even though you could take me for a ride more often than just to the vet once a year

Overall I am really something special

I jump on your lap every night and you welcome me with open arms and a friendly hello

I keep my eye on flying bugs in the summer so you could say I am pest control

Once and awhile you surprise me with a treat

Usually after getting my nails cut or my annual shots

To be quite honest I find it wonderful to sit next to you when your typing or watching t.v.

The rest of the day is mine to do what I please

So if you were smart as me you would be not just a cat but one lucky kitty

That has a grin that everyone can see

      bravewarrior I can listen to cat stories all day.Cats try to push you as far as they can.I tell mine get down from the counters and I get the spray water bottle out.She jumps instantly down before I even do anything.It works for awhile until she wants to press my buttons again.Other times I get so much love you think we were the only two in the world.Five cats now that takes an exceptional person to love all those cats.I am wiped with just one.Heres to many more lovely stories and great times.Have a beautiful day.

      Cats are the best. I have 3 cats of my own who live indoors and 2 outside cats that have adopted me. I guess you could call me the Cat Lady! My cats are my buds but I never let them on the kitchen counters or eating surfaces. Two of them try to sneak, but I bust them every time! My cats have middle names. When I call them my their first and middle, they know they are in trouble!

      Well you just knew that Colin who is owned by Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel would absolutely adore this lovely and oh so charming 'point of view' piece - and yes great minds think alike because I wrote one about a week ago from a dog's point of view .

      Love your wit here as well and you know what they say about great wit - it always speaks the truth.

      I am sending you sincere Valentine's day wishes from lake erie time canada 8:30pm courtesy of Colin and his smart cats

      Picklesandrufus I love the way our pets change the way we think.They are so important and they keep us tied into the animal planet.We all share this world why not both enjoy it together.Dim Flaxenwick I had help from my cat.She said this will have to do.We have to work on some more details later.Get it done and then you will see how your writing grows.Like catnip on a lazy Saturday afternoon.I hope you are healthy and I miss you too.I have been trying to focus and I know with practice I have to improve.Jopy56 Sounds like a good plan.Everyone is enjoying a little give and take.The cat gets the best deal in the house.Pampered all the time.KoffeeKlatch Gals There use to be an old cartoon called top cat.It was something else.Gypsy Rose Lee Once our cats leave their mark it lasts a lifetimes.Got to love our cats!DDE I love hearing stories about all pets but cats our my favorite.MHatter99 I think my cat knows your talking wind.She races and jumps and leaps whenever the wind comes around.I think she has a few secrets up her cat paw.Thanx everyone for taking the time to read and share another day in my life.

      This was so delightful. My Sid is also a lucky cat and "prince" of the house. Too bad there aren't any kitty restaurants we could take them to for a treat on holidays. I've loved animals all my life especially cats but it was only when I came to Latvia that I first got a cat. When I was a teen I got the cat syndrome for lack of a better word and would always excuse myself and say I had to go to the sandbox. lol Passing this on.

      billybuc They let dogs get all the bad publicity.It's a doggy dog world.The dogs have been known to be mans best friend.I know why the other day I heard that guy called a dirty dog.Well for cats they have been worshiped in Egyptian times and have been pampered with their own litter boxes so they don't have to go out in the cold.They don't have to be led around on a leash and chain.Dogs can learn alot from them but I don't think they will ever get out of the dog house.I think cats like people to feel like they are the boss but in the end see who gets their own cat bed and toys and treats.Patted when they want to and left alone when they had enough.Thanx for reading and having another day of fun.

      I am convinced that when civilization comes to an end, cats will rule the world. I do believe they are smarter than we humans. :)
