My Pretend Cat

Last night while staying up late to do some work, I noticed this cute little face staring in my kitchen window:

(S)he’s much cuter without the glowing demon eyes, btw.

And, if you can believe it, this kitty stayed outside my kitchen window, meowing, for several hours.  Until I went to bed, in fact, and I have no idea how long (s)he stayed there after I’d turned out the lights and crawled under the covers (I could still hear him/her meowing, but I was exhausted and fell asleep pretty much instantly.

I totally wanted to let her in and pretend she was *my* very own kitty, but the screen on my window doesn’t open. I mean, I suppose I could have gone around to the door to let her in, but (a) is it wise to let stray cats into one’s apartment? and (b) I didn’t think (s)he’d understand me when I told her/him to go around to the other side of the house.

Such a cute kitty.  This isn’t the first time (s)he’s appeared at my window to meow at me (the other time I did go outside, but she’d run away before I got around to where she’d been).  I need to give him/her a name.

  • I remember when you first met the kitty. Or I guess that was the first time since you said “the other time.”

    But cats, unlike the canines of the world, are smart, and so s/he might have understood what you were getting at if you’d said to go around to the side of the house.

    “But cats, unlike the canines of the world, are smart…”

    Them’s fightin’ words, man! I’ll have you know my dog is pretty dang smart and I don’t mean “trick” smart. Do cats know the names of rooms in their houses? Will they turn corners just by seeing you nod your head in that direction? I think not. Do they kiss your ankle when your making them breakfast? Huh? Oh wait, that’s cute, not smart. Oh, well, you get the point.

    ok, rant over.

    PS. Cats give me the willies.


  • @AOM: oh no, another person brainwashed by the disturbing drool of dogs!


    Dogs are obedient and eager to please. Just because cats likely won’t do those things (although to be honest I’m not sure if that’s the case) doesn’t mean they can’t. Perhaps they just don’t like performing for their overlords?

    I hate how cats always get a bad rap because they’re not mindlessly devoted to humans. Dogs are so lauded simply because they satisfy many people’s need to be loved with unthinking loyalty.
