I can’t understand my humans.

An Op-Ed from A Cat

Sometimes I just sit and watch them.

Documentary evidence of the destructive power of the Red Dot.
The Dog.
Annie, my missing sister

That’s another reason I watch them so closely, and why I feel an intense need to understand their waste of time and energy.

This is really me, threatening a ceramic dog unless I get my way. I didn’t think the humans knew it wasn’t real.
