In the beginning
I know I was a beautiful baby. Look at me now-I MUST have been adorable. Can't prove it though, there's no pictures of me before I arrived here.
Not only was I a beautiful baby, I was pretty smart too! Smart enough to find these people to look after me, that's for sure. Now I'm old and grumpy but back in the day, I tell you, I was the lad, doing that thing that tom cats do. Following my nose, following the delicious scent of pussy! Wandering around the streets, over the fields, through the gardens, just losing myself in the thrill of the chase and making sure I was the winner. Ah so, after all the fun, time to get back home. Home-where is home? Back over the gardens-are these the gardens I crossed before? I don't remember that shed. I don't think this is the right way. Go back, over the field. Wait, there are cows in this field, the field I came through on the way here had sheep. Where is my home?
I was lost. And cold. And hungry. Where were my people? Where was I? So hungry. I raid a garbage can, mmmmmmmm barbeque chicken wings. This isn't so bad, just have to find a warm place to sleep and I'm all set.
So cold, so hungry. I don't feel too well. It's tough living rough. My beautiful fur all matted and sticky. I'm pretty sure I have an abcess on my tooth. Can't eat much. The pain is awful.
Just across the road from my little hideaway, a house with cat lovers. I know they must love cats, they have a little hole with a flap in their back door, just big enough for a cat to leave the house and get back in. I watch, I wait. Oh, there's that ginger one, I have to watch out for him, he doesn't want me here. I'll show him…Ha, kicked his ass, now for the food and warmth I know is just through that flap in the door. Must watch out for the people, I'll just have a peep through the window first.
They are both sitting down, now's my chance. Softly softly, through the hole .
Oh bliss, it's so warm in here. And the food!! Nice soft food that I can eat even with my broken teeth.
RUN RUN RUN, they've heard me,they're coming after me!! Got to get out of here.
Through the hole in the door, straight into that Ginger thing again. Kick his ass again and teach him who's boss.
Ginger cat a big problem for me, but the people are a pushover! If I play my cards right I could be well in here.I'm so ill and getting worse but still have my kitty smarts. I let them catch me.
Off to the kitty doctor, OMG the things they did! I'll tell you all about it after my nap.
