Time Is on My Side

Let's see, where was I? Oh yeah...My powers failed me and I found myself stuck with the two-legged one. I must confess, however, that I am VERY stubborn, so I continued to refuse to acknowledge her and became very adept at hiding (see picture). Refusing to acknowledge her included turning up my nose at the food and water that she offered me for many days. The two-legged one kept talking to me and I even heard her crying and saying that she was so worried about me because I wouldn't eat or drink. Well, this thing in my chest, I think it's called a heart, it started to get a little bit warm and tingly when the two-legged one talked to me and it really did some weird things when she cried. One night, I decided to get a little closer to her to see if I could pick up any useful information. The room was all dark and the two-legged one was laying on this flat, soft thingy. When I got near her, she reached out her hand to me and to my surprise, I rubbed my head on it and you know what? It really felt good! A rumble thingy in my chest, near my heart maybe, started going and I just couldn't stop myself from rolling on my back and letting her stroke me all over.

Yes Edsel and Mia and Ghost, I realized that I'm a cat and that being a cat in possession of a two-legged one definitely has its advantages.

That two-legged one thinks that she's so smart, finding my blog. Well I don't care. I'll just keep blogging when she's not around. Hissssss!!!! =^.^=

Getting back to my story...I remained motionless for several hours after being deposited in the large room with furniture. I tried teleporting away with my super brain waves, but nothing happened. Resigned to my fate, I left the cage-like device and searched for a place to take refuge. I found a little tent in a dark, soft space and curled up inside. The two-legged one entered the room occasionally and emitted more guttural noises. I tuned her out and began musing on whether I could turn back time and return from whence I had come. I mused for a very long time...(to be continued).

The Two-Legged One

Hi there. I'm the two-legged being that Miss Kitty referred to in her post. Given my fondness for cat related blogs, I quickly discovered her handiwork and now feel compelled to present my side of the story. I'm not saying that Miss Kitty is spreading falsehoods, I'm just saying that each of us has our own version of the events that have transpired over the last few weeks.

She says that she magically appeared in my bedroom in a cat carrier. Welllll.....I first met Miss Kitty at a friend-of-a-friend's house. This kind woman began seeing Miss Kitty in her yard last fall. After trying without success to find Miss Kitty's owners, she caught Miss Kitty in a humane trap and brought her into her home. Miss Kitty wouldn't come in voluntarily, as during her time outside, she had reverted to being a semi-feral cat and was very apprehensive about contact with humans. The kind woman developed a bond with Miss Kitty, but was not able to keep her. It had been about a year since my beloved Gertie succumbed to cancer and I decided that I was ready to open my heart and apartment to another feline companion.

I picked Miss Kitty up on July 9th and that's when my odyssey began....

I Have Arrived

It's taken me some time to assimilate to my new form and my new surroundings but I've finally determined that I am now a cat and that I live with a two-legged being whose activities are frequently a source of bewilderment. She seems to leave the house for long periods of time, several days each week, so I decided to risk using the computer during one of her absences.

About a month ago, I found myself in a small cage-like device in the middle of a room containing several pieces of furniture. The two-legged being opened the door, emitted odd, guttural sounding noises, and left the room, closing the door behind her. I did what any rational being would do, I stayed put and pretended that I wasn't there. So began my odyssey as a large spirit wrapped in the body of a small, furry, unbelievably beautiful cat.
