Diary of an Apartment Cat

A glimpse into my little corner of the world.

The Black Window

I figured out a long time ago that the humans and animals in the black window aren’t real. When I was a younger cat I made a fool out of myself when my humans were watching Tiny Kittens on Livestream and I could hear the kittens mewing. I tried looking all around the black window, front and back, to find them, but they weren’t really there. I had kittens...

It’s Christmas Time Again!

Of course we all know what this means. It means I’m expected to participate in a humiliating photo shoot. I made an effort to be as uncooperative as possible but the female human still managed to get a couple of shots. You’ll notice, however, that the only one where I’m looking in the general direction of the camera is a bit out of focus. This pleases...

Boxes, Glorious Boxes!

I thought all my dreams were coming true when my humans started filling the apartment with boxes! I was so excited! I dove into them, hid in them, slept in them. One of them became my new office. It’s great when humans really get something right! But then they had to go and ruin everything by filling the boxes with stuff. There’s no room for me in...

Intruder!

It was an ordinary day. There was little warning of what was about to happen, other than an incessant, faint, sad mewing. The male human went outside in the rain to investigate and discovered a wet, hungry young cat huddled below our balcony. She was barely more than a kitten, really. He then had the nerve to bring her into my apartment! I got along...

On the ‘Nip

I consider myself a pretty sensible cat. I like to keep a level head. Therefore, I’ve never had any time for recreational drugs. They are for simpletons. Shortly after my humans first brought me home, they offered me some catnip, but I refused it. I was completely disinterested. Since then my humans have been telling people that catnip has no effect...

At the Vet

I used to wonder where my humans go when they leave the apartment. They never tell me. What activities could they possibly wish to engage in that don’t include me? But then I realized that almost every time they put me in my carrier and take me out with them, we go to the vet. So I realized, oh, okay, that’s where they go. I’m aware that most cats...

Din-Din Woes

There is a feline rights violation of ridiculous proportions occurring in this apartment. While I like all kinds of dry din-din, I am very particular about my wet din-din. I like one kind. Only one! My humans are well aware of this, and yet they have stopped giving it to me. Meanwhile, their own diet has not changed. Pardon my language, but sometimes...

The Water Room

There’s something that’s been bothering me, but I haven’t wanted to say anything until I’ve had more time to observe and study it. Humans have a very weird relationship with water. Water is for drinking. Period. But humans do utterly disgusting things with it. They can actually be quite disgusting creatures, I’m sorry to say. Nowhere near as disgusting...

Meowy Christmas!

I love Christmas! I always get loads of treats and new toys to play with! It’s great! I’m not sure about this hat the male human put on my head though. As a cat, I am not a fan of hats and do not see the appeal. I wish all cats and humans alike a very happy day. Not dogs though.

Compromise

When you live with other creatures, regardless of species, it’s important to make compromises so that everyone gets along and has a happy life. I know cats aren’t known for being selfless, and I’ll admit there are some things I won’t bend on, but I do small things every day for the sake of my humans. For example, when I need to vomit, I make sure to...
