U is for Understanding

I FEAR I do not sufficiently understand the human race. In an effort to get into the head of the old woman in order to more fully understand the human brain, I sat on her chest while she was asleep in bed and stared. She awoke and pushed me off. 

When she fell back asleep I sat on her chest again and resumed my staring. This happened five or six times until the alarm went off.

‘I’ve hardly slept a wink,’ she told the old man in the morning. ‘That cat’s been creeping me out.’

‘The staring?’ he asked. She nodded.

‘I know,’ he replied. ‘Sometimes She’s like a character out of Nightmare On Elm Street.’

Nightmare On Elm Street? I don't remember seeing a stunning babe of a ginger cat in that. I thought I was more like the cat in the old Disney film The Three Lives of Thomasina, based on the Paul Gallico book Thomasina: The Cat Who Thought She Was God

Oh, that's a good idea for a film. Toffee: The Cat Who WAS a God.

Take note, Disney.

My blog That's Purrfect is also in the A to Z Challenge. Read it here

Well, I've finally done it. I have written my no-holds-barred exposé of my life. Prepare to be AMAZED, prepare to be SHOCKED, prepare to be ENTHRALLED blah, blah, blah. Left is the paperback, right is the Kindle version.


You can follow me on Facebook,  talk to me on Twitter, and idolise me on Instagram.


  1. A little bit creepy! So, does staring helps for getting into the hoomans head?

    U is for Unique Style

  2. hahahah Lucy likes to sleep on me in the early's like a pre-breakfasts wake up call which I studiously ignore and promptly go back to snore. 90 minutes or so I will get up and feed her majesty! Cheers and have a happy healthy day!

    1. Ha, good tactics! You're quite clever for a hooman.

  3. Oh, I LOVED Thomasina when I was little! Your people should take a tip from me, lock cats out of the bedroom at night!

    1. Gasps in horror... locked out of the bedroom? I would never allow it!

  4. Yes, Disney should make a film about you. :)

  5. I will show this to my partner who has been corresponded with by her friend's puppy...
