the cat who writes

Write, take naps, and take another nap

Cats and humans should nap and watch football on Sunday afternoon



Today is Sunday and I am not writing today. I know I signed up for the 31 Day Blogging Challenge, but I don’t want to write today. And because I don’t want to write, I won’t.

I want to take a nap. Cats and humans should nap on Sunday afternoon. So I will.

No one is making me write. Not one is telling me I have to write every day. I hate it when someone tells me I “have to” do something.

I am so much like my typist. She hates it when someone tells her, “You should do this.” I hate it too. You should catch more mice. You should always wipe your feet after you get out of the litter box. You should not spray on the potted plants in the house.

So. Today I am not writing. I will take a nap. And after I wake up I will watch some football.

“Pooh! Really? You like football? How could I have been typing for you this long and never realize you like football?”

“There are many things you don’t know about me Mrs. Hodges. I love a good football game.”

“Pooh, you are a cat with many stories.  And, for a cat who didn’t want to write today. You did write.”

It is time for my nap now. Oh, I don’t like being told what I should do. But. I like to tell you what you should do. If you are a human or a cat, take a nap and watch football. 

“And, Mrs. Hodges, you “should” take a nap too. You are a little grumpy today.”


“Yes, Grumpy. Please finish typing the ending to my story as I dictated earlier.  I do love you Mrs. Hodges. But would you get that crabby look off of your face and take a nap.”

All my best,
Love Pooh
