DP Daily Prompt: The Cat Says Meow Post by Ranu
Once I had three cats,their personalities were completely different. J.D was sweet,but she’d show her anger if her sleep was disturbed. Alex was a jealous cat,she disliked sharing her owners with other cats.Thursday the sweetest of all,tried hard to please everyone. J.D got along with her but made sure Thursday did not take advantage . Alex did not like Thursday or J.D.,she kept her distance from them.
After observing the three for a considerable length of time, it helped me to gain some experience. I’d take Thursday’s role but will make some changes. I’ve experienced that in this world of people and animals,one cannot be too nice.It almost always backfires.
My good friend is stuck,he was always too accommodating,but finds himself in a quandary,the more he gives in the more is expected of him,it has come to a point when it is unbearable. My fear is one day he’ll snap and all his good deeds will come to a screeching halt. I foresee that day is not too far. I will not portray the change by taking his role. I’d rather be Thursday. So here it comes!
‘This morning J.D was playing with a ball. She was having fun. I tried to join her.She hissed at me,I was livid,I did the same to her. I moved round and round to take the ball away, I pounced and got the ball in my paw,I kept meowing, I was happy to see J.D disturbed. The ball gave me minutes of enjoyment. I thought, See I had fun and made J.D miserable,this is how I should treat them’.
‘It is my turn to be nasty with Alex, I’ll scratch her,hiss at her,when she tries to be mean,I’ll teach her I’m not the same Thursday any more. I noticed J.D and Alex are friendly with me. Will they continue to do so if I change and become the same old meek cat pushed around by those two,I do not think so!’
The lesson to learn is, “Do not let anyone walk all over you”!
