That darn cat

-A A +A
By Kay Kerbyson

  The cat is killing me. I’ve had my ‘Tommy,’ as I call him, for about 3 years now and the darn thing is driving me crazy. Tommy used to be quiet, and kept a distance most of the time, but for the past 18 months he’s been driving me up the wall. I know some people love ’um, give them a feeling of contentment, but I just can’t jump up and down about mine, even when the darn thing is being good.

  You see, mine has a split personality. When Tommy is being good he’s just lulling me into a false sense of security so that, when he decides to be bad, I don’t see it coming. And then all hell breaks loose. I’m sure others have had the same experience.

  They always look so harmless don’t they? They have those big eyes, scanning you with a piercing radiance. It’s mesmerizing. You don’t want to look, but you just can’t help yourself. And then there’s the loud purring noise, like they’re happy to see you. You lay there thinking, nice cat, good cat, having you in my life isn’t so bad, when really it’s plotting to turn around and bite you. And when it does, it’s like a sharp needle in your arm.
