Fiction on Odyssey: Letters from the Cats

Disclaimer: This is a very loose translation of "Meow Meow HISSSS"

Calico kitten

To the inferior humans on the internet reading this:

Of course you'd want to hear from me of all cats in the world. Obviously I am the best cat, a good cat, as the human foolishly trying to transcribe keeps telling me... But I should have known. I'd been around the shelter for a while, and I knew humans were dumb, but I didn't think these ones were. They did adopt me, after all. Once I established a structure around my new house, everything was fine. The male humans both liked to brush me and made sure I took care of my kitty business in peace. The females, however.... One of them is all right. She provided a place for me to sleep between her two legs and gave good pets, although her definition of personal space seemed off. The other female didn't try to pet me, but seems like one to be respected, as she shows catlike qualities. She respected me, I respected her. I thought it was enough. Then one of the humans brought the new... thing into MY home.

A baby. Not a baby human, but a baby peasant cat. I shouldn't have had to deal with this, I got spayed! And nobody let me have any input! That little brat took away the upstairs light room and climbs everywhere like she owns the place! I own the place! Not her! I've tried and tried to show her who's the boss around here. I've hissed, I've shouted when she tries to come near me or my things, but she just doesn't get it! She may as well be a dog. I've even tried to... eliminate any sustenance. The weak do not survive. She must learn, even if she may as well be with the dogs. At least the respectable human still sides with me. She seems to do the same when the little one tries to so much as bap her. More later.

Hewwo hoomans!

Life in the new place has been so much fun! It was hard leaving my brothers and sisters at first, but these hoomans are sooo nice!!! There's two big ones and two small ones! The small boy one likes pets a lot! But the big lady human is so soft! She likes for me to sleep on her and it's soooo comfy! The other big boy human has a special room with a huge light box he sits at all day, but it's comfy there too! And the last hooman.... I think she's sad. She needs cuddlies, but she always makes these weird noises. They sound like "No," and she uses big words I don't get. There's another kitty here too but she's not good at making friends. You don't hiss and roar if I come near you, silly! We gotta play! Maybe she can know soon. The can all know soon, even that hooman who likes to call me "destruct-oh-kitty."

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
