Toffee Earns Her Entitlement

The old woman has just read this description of a character in a book: "She was swathed in a permanent air of unearned entitlement," and stared straight at me.

I have NO IDEA what she was implying. I admit I'm a smidgeon entitled. But "unearned"? No way. I have earned all my entitlement. For example, I bring lots of food into the house. Admittedly, most of it is still moving - but you can't have everything.

I also keep zombies away and patrol the house every day. The treat cupboard is a zombie-free zone and it's not my fault that the occasional packet of Dreamies may accidentally get torn open. Which leads me to another of my regular tasks, hoovering up stray treats - right into my mouth.

I also keep humans warm at night and regularly wake them at 4am so they can get an early start to the day.

So you see, all my entitlement is EARNED.

  1. No kidding, you earned all of those entitlements every single day!

  2. Well, a good thing you're getting it now, already as it's said by 2035 the coffers will run dry and no entitlement funds for any mousers will remain ...

  3. Entitled: en·ti·tled
    believing oneself to be inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment
    She's got it wrong, are a cat, and cats get everything. Full stop.

  4. You shouldn't work so hard, You should be entitled for being so adorable. XO

  5. I'm exhausted just reading about your endeavors. You do deserve everything. :D
