Today’s prompt was to write in another persona. I was debating on what to use when my cat intervened. The following poem is based on a true event.
I told you I was hungry
I tried to tell you nicely
I tried to be meek about it
I know I have food already
But I want something else
Don’t let my shape fool you, it’s all fur
I’m not fat. I don’t eat too much
I’m just very very very hungry
Never mind the full plate of dry food, that doesn’t count
Are you ignoring me?
You just keep right on ignoring my pleas
My heartbreaking meows
My pathetic innocent looks
My big sad eyes
Well if you’re that cold
I can play that game
Here, rub my belly, it’s empty
A little closer
So I can shred your hand and make you bleed

Oh, I’ve about had it with my kitty refusing to eat the salmon flavored Fancy Feast that comes in the Costco boxed variety! Fun way to write from a cat’s point of view.
Haha. Yes, cats can be complete brats. I just changed her dry food to an organic, sustainably packaged brand and I think she wants to kill me, lol
I switched to moist because she hadn’t eaten for 3 days or more & I thought she was literally dying (she’s 15)…turns out she was just picky!
Aww … 15 is pretty old for a cat!
She’s loving life now. Be happy with your feline:)
Good for her (and you).
Mine’s rolling around on my desk now 🙂
