It’s Jiminy’s first Christmas and my second with the humans. I’ve been working extensively with Jiminy on his issue Human Social Anxiety Disorder (HSAD). He’s gotten very comfortable in his new home. He really enjoys steak and chicken. We spend a lot of time by the windows, our favorite is the one in the bedroom, a lot of birds hang out on the fire escape. It can be a little exhausting because he needs constant attention. He always wants to sleep near me, rubs on my face and body. I let him know when I need my time. I’m a busy cat, right now I’m reading The Price of Inequality by Joseph Stiglitz, I saw it sitting in the shelf and was curious, he’s Subject B’s favorite economist. While I thought I had my paws full with Jiminy, after reading, humans, you baffle me.
Subject B gets home the other day and it’s the first time she sees me and Jiminy in bed together. She starts whining as she looks at us, “I want in on some of that. You guys don’t cuddle me.”
From economic policies that promote inequality to always needing our constant attention. You can’t see me right now, I’m shaking my head.
Jiminy on the other hand is coming along. He likes being pet and licks Subject B and C’s hands. He’s still skittish but less so. Cats, we’re simpler creatures. Nature may be brutal but we don’t create weapons of mass destruction like people do, we pee on stuff.
Since it’s Christmas Eve, I hugged the humans so hard till they hummed appreciation in my ear. Then I wrapped my paws around their neck tight and they they couldn’t help but “awe” out loud.
We may be simple creatures but we can get cat people to do anything we want. We control a good portion of the population, look at all those cat videos online.
