This cat thinks he owns our garden.
He suns on the basil,
rolls around with the potted lavender,
and tries to use the tomato plot as a litter box.
We were talking about cats and dogs and birds on New Years Eve. Of course, Me-ology and Theology came with it. I’ve always liked cats as animals but only once have I liked a cat as a pet.
Mrs. M was saying something about cats and dogs and mentioned the me-ology of how cats think they’re god. How they think they’re above us humans and rule the world.
(oh, he also crushes the garlic)
And then it hit me why I don’t like cats.
Man is meant to be above the animals, not below them.
Cats mess that up. Dogs do a little. They put us up with God. Sorry dogs. Not you either.
I do like birds, though… especially ducklings.
Cats, you’re not god. God is God. YOU. are. an animal.
Stop acting like God and I’ll like you.
