I was thinking about the cat today and how she’s really rather unappreciated in my blogging world. I double checked and discovered that there are five tags on posts with “cats” and 41 for “dogs”. It just so happens that I took this picture of her the other day so I thought it would be a great opportunity to share a little Fiona story.
She’s just boring.
In addition to boring she is also frighteningly outperformed in her cat duties by one large Great Dane.
Cat duty: Spend the day sleeping in the sun in an inconvenient place.
Fiona – check
Piper -Sleeps in an inconvenient place but takes up 20 times more room and when you oust her from that place sighs loudly and often farts in your general direction as she moves off.
Cat duty: Kills rodents or other small animals.
Fiona – Doesn’t know what to do with a mouse when given to her on a silver platter.
I know I’ve tried.
Piper- Kills rats with relish. Also death on possum, skunk and other small creatures that invade her kingdom.
Cat duty: Being a general cuddly animal.
Fiona – Waits until you are almost settled in your chair/bed/what have you and then sits on you. If you attempt to remove her she will somehow sink her freakishly sharp back claws into you on her way off.
Piper – Such a good cuddler that I actually kicked John out of bed late in pregnancy with Ivy in favor of Pipers back warming skills.
Fiona also is worse about stealing food off the table and pukes in the house more than Piper does.
To top it off I prefer blogging with pictures, while Fiona is a beautiful cat her coloring makes taking a good picture of her very difficult. This is exacerbated by the fact that she is a cat so immediately looks annoyed and haughty while turning her head away from me while I try.
I’m no longer confused about why the dog posts have outnumbered the cats.
