Dear fellow cats…


Dear Fellow Cats,

What is quarantine?

I guess it could mean more treats, but it could also mean being bothered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Honestly, it’s not too bad. I do have to say that my summer body really isn’t coming in very soon. I’m sure with all of the treats that I’m forcing my owner to give me, I’ve probably gained a good 10 pounds.

I’ve seen how much my owners have also changed. It’s like they’re losing their minds, sitting in the house eating and binge-watching every show they could possibly watch on Netflix. I can’t really complain because those shows really are interesting. I feel like they’ve gained weight too, what do you guys think?

Speaking of losing our minds, I’ve been hearing noises every time I walk. I hear my owners talk about how the floor creaks, whatever that even means. But it’s like every time I step a foot on the floor, there is a noise. I don’t know, maybe I’m going crazy too. I stay home every single day, for 24 hours straight. Being stuck at home is the norm for me, so it’s not much of a change.

Sometimes, I do this funny thing where I tap my owner to see how many taps it takes for her to budge and finally give me my snacks. So far, the least amount of taps is four. This week, I’m aiming for two.

Alright, now all of those things sound great, right? Yeah, but my only problem with this entire situation is that they touch me all the time. I don’t know about you guys, but I hate being touched, and especially hate being held. And that’s exactly what they do. I think maybe if I stare at them with enough hatred, they’ll put me down. But no, no matter what I do, they still hold me and pet me. I’m no animal to be pet, I’m supposed to be enjoyed from a distance.

Well anyways, my owner works from home now, meaning I get treats whenever I want, so I can’t really complain. How are you guys and your mental health, having your owners home with you at all hours of the day?

Simon, your favorite tabby 🙂
