Daily Prompt: The Cat Says Meow
Write a story about yourself from the perspective of an object, thing, animal, or another person.
There are times I think about the two felines, Raphael and Gabriel. We first brought Gabriel to our home, he was a tiny baby scared and insecure, after a week we had a change of heart why not we get his brother from the same family.
After we brought Raphael Gabriel’s change was unbelievable, he was sure of himself and was not scared at all.
We watched the two of them esp.Gabriel who showed his brother how to climb the stairs. They are a little over a year now. Their personalities are completely different. Gabriel is calm behaves well around us and Raphael is the exact opposite. His temperament is sweet but beneath that is one naughty feline.
I’m wondering what Raphael thinks day after day when I spray him with water for a number of things he does wrong. He chews my books, I spray him with water, he knocks down our pictures he gets sprayed. This morning he is in a sour mood, I found him lying on one of the dining chairs, he did not attempt to come to my room.
He could not help but to come in to my room when the door was open and took possession of my chair where I sit to use my computer.He could not resist the temptation. I stood there looking at him hoping he’d vacate my chair. But he was unconcerned about me. So I sat on the edge of the chair, he moved a bit hoping I’d leave but when I didn’t, he jumped down and went to the dining room I could tell he was disgusted.
I went twice to see where he was, he is comfortably sitting in front of my sewing machine, perhaps anticipating me coming to drive him out of there. As long as he does not chew the box I’ll let him stay where he is.
Raphael must be sick of not having his way, he I’m sure does not have good thoughts about me. Every time he hears my footsteps he must think, “here she comes again with her bottle, one of these days I’ll chew that bottle, so she cannot use it against me, you’ll see that day is not too far.”
I can sense what he is thinking I smile and say, “really Raphael you think you can do that, let me see you try!”
