Do you know how late the humans are coming home these days?
Well... late enough to not be able to spend much time with me- when it’s dark black at the outside and the temperature drops to the lowest of the day. Then the humans sleep their long and once-only sleep of the day (that’s the other thing that annoys me, though, to be honest, they are much shorter these days than their usual), only to get out for the daily ‘hunting’ while it’s still dark.
I’ve been a lonely kitten the last few weeks. The humans got me a new and fun ‘cat tree’, too- so I guess I’ve been a lonely kitten on a perky cat tree. It does give the right picture, doesn’t it... sort of like ‘train in the rain’ as Mama quotes some wise human called Neruda sometimes:
“Tell me, is the rose naked
or is that her only dress?
Why do trees conceal
the splendor of their roots?
Is there anything in the world sadder
than a train standing in the rain?”
Why do humans play with words? Is it like their toy mouse? I think it is.
Whatever, back to what I was saying! Well they took many pictures lately but they are still not transferred to the ‘square black flat box’ (insert by Mauzzie for the human readers: laptop) and they did not get the time to help me post them on the blog. Well, that’s what they say.... Excuses, excuses and more excuses! I swear if I hear one more excuse I’ll meow very very loud as my complaint against my humans!
Mama promises that she’d be good from tomorrow. It probably means that Papa’s litter-mates leave for the far away land sometime between now and the next sunrise (as I can smell the family on my humans when they are back at those unacceptable hours and my cat instincts tell me that THAT’s where they have been!), and they can again be ‘claimed’ by me.
I wish the humans were not so busy :(
