Have you ever wondered what your cats were thinking? Just for fun, here’s a dialogue I’m sure took place: In the cat thoughts..
Jasmine: Are you kidding me? Do you have to get up at 5:30 every morning?
Human: Only if you want me to bring home the bacon..Or tuna, whatever.
Jewel: Listen, Karen, or whatever you human call yourself, my hearing is amazing, and I don’t appreciate the noises coming from that hole in your face at this hour. But, since you’ve disturbed my slumber and approached my throne, make yourself useful and put some premium kibble in my dish. And fresh cold water while you’re at it. You know I wont’ drink anything that’s been sitting still for more than 2 hours.
Human: Good morning my pretty, sweet girl! Who’s mommie’s pretty? Are you hunger?? Hmmm? Are you hunger??
Jewel: Sigh. WTF.
Jasmine: Karen, you are officially banished from working from home. I will no longer allow it. I have confiscated your printer. Time to leave. Now let me sleep and dream about the good old days when I only saw you at night.
Human: When did my cats start calling me Karen? Oh well, cat thoughts.
