It's with great sadness that I move this from my HubPages account to my personal blog. Why? This is one of the first pieces that I wrote and it is one of my favorites. HubPages is mainly for informative pieces and How-To's so this piece of writing was getting mixed reviews. Today, while re-vamping my account, I decided it was time to move this article to my personal blog so it will still get enjoyed but not interfere with my online article writing. So, I present to you, "The Annoyances of a Cat".
Don't get me wrong...
I love cats!
I have four cats and I plan on getting more in my future. Although I love cats,
I sometimes wonder why! Is it their cute face? Or the way they keep us warm
when we're feeling cold? Whatever it is, I must stand up in protest! We cat
owners put up a lot for these cats!!
The number one
annoyance I have, those showdowns in the hall. When you're walking down the
hall and your cat is laying there right smack dab in the middle. It's a
showdown between human and cat. Just staring at each other. Sometimes I can
hear the epic western music playing in the back of my head. Now, most of the
time, you get lucky. You can just walk right by. Wait, it's not really walking.
It's a half skip, half run for your life as you play Russian Roulette where the
the hall is the gun and the cat is the bullet. But sometimes, you can just tell
that your cat is in a mood. For you cat owners, you know what I'm talking
about. You have to find the nearest object to act as a shield as you shrink
against the wall in hopes that you won't get attacked. Other times, you have to
scream for someone else in the house to come rescue you like you're a damsel in
distress. Sometimes even, you just turn around and wait until the cat has
moved. The cat rules the roost, and we know it.
This brings me to my
next point. You'll be sitting and enjoying watching TV or, like me, writing on
HubPages and then suddenly, like a ninja, the cat appears. On your lap he goes
and he has no sign of moving. Just great. Sometimes you get lucky and can
continue on with what you were doing but whenever you're doing something
important no matter which way you move, the cat moves too. All hopes of doing
what you were doing are lost. Gone. If you move your cat, you have a chance to
get attacked or even worse, a showdown in the hall. Your only hope is to just
sit there and let your cat enjoy a nice lap.
We just sit there and
take it! Why? Cause we have to! We have no choice! We love our cats dearly to
the point where we just take it. Whoever said love hurts was right. Cats can be
sweet sometimes. They can nicely sit on your lap and let you love him. My cat
even hugs people. He'll put his head to your head and nuzzle your face. But
you've got to be careful. He has a nose fetish. You'll be scratching his face
and he'll be kissing your nose and he'll give you a love bite. They really
hurt! They draw blood. It sucks. If you're ever in my house and he jumps on
your lap, my best advice is just don't let him anywhere near your face.
So again, I ask, why
do we take it? Maybe it's because they are a good ear to listen to you when you
need someone to talk to. Or, maybe it's those moments when you don't want to be
alone; they are always there for you. Whatever it is, as annoying as these cats
can be, they really are worth it.
So below, tell me your cat stories. :) Give us
a good chuckle.
