IN QUIT CAT’S OPINION
By Juneta Key 2008
My history is long and ancient.
I was once revered as a Egyptian god.
My blood lines are aristocratic.
I am a skilled hunter.
My nature is wild, independent and sensual.
I am a creature of instinct.
Ping Pong Mouse in a cardboard box is my favorite game.
I love to play and pounce from hidden places.
You have my affection, but my attention must be earned.
My mind is curious, nimble, and sensitive.
If you talk to me I will talk back.
I am resourceful, adaptable, and can be self sufficient.
I can problem solve when I choose, or in great boredom.
I dont like to be bored.
I can become very demanding in such circumstances.
I crave cleanliness.
I do not like my feet to get dirty.
I practice good hygiene, so please keep my facilities clean.
You won’t like me if I get miffed about it.
I am ever watchful, and easily amused.
My sarcasm can be observed in my expressions.
I am not above making a social statement, or showing my disdain.
If I am mad at you I will ignore you.
Or I might claw or bite, and then run.
If I am in a mood, I will ignore you.
If you behave outrageous or silly, I will ignore you.
However I will be secretly amused.
If you want something you need to make it worthy of my attention.
I like high places, and dark corners.
Card board boxes, and brown paper sacks.
I crave the sunshine, and warm places to nap.
When over excited I might bite.
Most often it is in play, but occasionally in anger.
I am mischievous, and enjoy pranks that startle.
When stroked, I will stretch and arch my body.
I rumble in appreciation of such affection from those I deem worthy.
When I enjoy something you will know it.
I will demand more of the same.
I like to touch, and be touched.
It can excite me, or sooth me.
I am primal and domestic; both these forces exist within me.
My spirit cannot be tamed.
I allow domestication because of my affection for you.
Gain my respect and affection. Earn my loyalty.
Am I magical?
Do I know things?
Do I have nine lives?
Of course I do, after all I am a cat.
Make me feel safe.
Entertain me, love me.
Give me room to be myself.
Then my heart and loyalty will forever be yours.
