A friend emailed me this, and I laughed myself stupid. I thought I'd share it:

EXCERPTS FROM A CAT'S DIARY


DAY 752

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little
dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat,
while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing
that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild
satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of
furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.


DAY 761

Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around
their feet while they were walking almost succeeded,
must try this at the top of the stairs. In an attempt
to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once
again induced myself to vomit on their favourite chair...
must try this on their bed.


DAY 765

Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body in
attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and
to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed
and condescended about what a good little cat I was.
Hmmm..... Not working according to plan.


DAY 768

I am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good
reason I was chosen for the water torture. This time however
it included a burning foamy chemical called "shampoo." What
sick minds could invent such a liquid. My only consolation
is the piece of thumb still stuck between my teeth.


DAY 771

There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was
placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could
hear the noise and smell the foul odour of the glass tubes
they call "beer". More importantly I overheard that my
confinement was due to my power of "allergies." Must learn
what this is and how to use it to my advantage.


DAY 774

I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe
snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than
happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird on the
other hand has got to be an informant, and speaks with them
regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to
his current placement in the metal room his safety is assured.
But I can wait, it is only a matter of time...

That's hysterical.  I can just hear a cat type voice in those diary entries.

I love the cat diary. Like Ebor, I can just hear him saying that.

We used to have a dog.  This is, to a T, what I imagine her thoughts to have been.

5.30pm every day, my dog went "Oh Boy, Dad's home", runs and gets his bowl, sits by my chair 'cause he knows that half the first beer is his!!
