You have certainly given me a lot to think about. For those of you not paying attention... yesterday I admitted I was a bit hard on my Mom, but it was because I didn't want her to think she had me wrapped around her little finger. Megan in Oz, one of my regular readers, left this comment...
PS. Millie - thanks for your note. I feel as if I'm famous - I've had my name included in one of your blog postings!
I understand the whole "cat as aloof goddess-like creature" facade, but to be brutally honest, I don't think it suits you. I think you're a much warmer, loving cat than that.
Another option might be to present yourself to your mom and the world as one of the cleverest cats on the planet: one who was born "in the gutter" (almost literally, I guess), but who had the determination and smarts to elevate themselves to their present very happy circumstances by choosing - from all the possible moms around - your mom. As you might say: "Wowza!"
You have scored yourself a wonderful forever home with a doting mom and every comfort that you could possibly want.
If you went with this approach, then you could acknowledge your mom by boasting to the rest of us about every new wonderful thing she did for you, which, in turn, would add to your cleverness in finding her.
What do you think?
I've learned a lot since I came to live here. Gizzy (my bestest pal, who with my big sis Jasmine is now waiting at the Bridge) told me if I was smart I would continue to learn new things. I am very fortunate to have friends in the blogosphere who help keep me on my toes, (so to speak.)
I've given it a lot of thought, and Megan, you're right.
I did start out in the gutter, I certainly have scored a wonderful forever home, and I do have every comfort a cat could want. My Mom is pretty awesome. She's smart, she's talented, I've got her wrapped around my paw, and she's all mine.
Thank you Megan.
