A tail!

For The Sunday Muse




Katte’s quite the mistress. Get this, come here, find that, go there! She doesn’t need to say anything, her eyes and the tilt of her head say it for her!

She lost something the other day. I looked everywhere without success. Fortunately Dawg, my dog came to the rescue having located it and placed it at her feet. 

As they say, cats have servants and dogs have masteresses (not sure that’s a word but I’m trying not to be gender specific!)

I inadvertently trod on Katte’s tail the other day. ‘MeOWWW!’ she screeched. A tiger would have envied the menacing state she gave me! Dawg just dawdled off to his safe place behind the sofa! 

I once found her sitting here on my keyboard. She was keeping an eye on the mouse! Guess what her favourite song is. Three blind mice! Her fave movie? The Sound of Mew-sic! I’ve got loads more cat jokes for you … only kitten! Where was I? Oh yes.

Someone once said for a person to truly understand rejection they must first be ignored by a cat. No danger of that here, eh Dawg?.




ghostThanks to Carrie for hosting The Sunday Muse.

    Such a cute character comparison between cats and dogs and the unfortunate human caught between them. Good to see you here at The Sunday Muse, Keith!

    Very amusing! I can’t abide pets, myself…so there’s a tiny wooden parrot stuck in among the potted ivy, and my stuffed menagerie: koala, hedgehog, and very old bear of no distinct breed. They all have names and enjoy the imaginary life in which we reside together…at least I think they enjoy it, I’ve not overheard any complaints😉

        Absolutely! I’ll try to gather them for a group photo…they’re a bit shy, very loyal😊

    If you ever wonder who’s the master and who’s the slave, a cat can soon clarify that. 🙂 I get a 4am wake-up call when the cats hear something interesting outside. Angus has that Siamese wail you just can’t sleep through!

        I’d shut the door, but his fav. bed is a soft chair in our room — and of course gets his way. 🙂

    Cats have a mind of their own. And they attach best to only one person,
    the other she just “likes”. Nice comparison you ran here, dogs v. cats.
