My mum doesn’t like cats

December 9, 2018

My mum doesn’t like cats. When her broken daughter moved in with her, the cat came too.

My mum doesn’t like cats and she doesn’t like clutter. When the cat moved in, she came with a food bowl, water bowls, countless toys, a litter tray and a scratching post over 4ft high. My mum allocated a special drawer for the toys.

My mum doesn’t like cats. She bought the cat a new toy to chase and was dismayed when the cat ran away from it.

My mum doesn’t like cats. She booked a man to fit a cat-flap in the back door so the cat could explore the world outside. She was overheard telling the cat: “Guess what’s happening Friday?”

My mum doesn’t like cats. When the cat ignores her cat-flap and mews at us to let her in through a different door, we all laugh at her dramatic face through the glass…then we open it for her.

My mum doesn’t like cats. Every now and then the cat sits on her lap, or cuddled up next to her, and it’s the only time my mum actually sits still.

My mum doesn’t like cats. She’s given the cat a taste for delicacies like tinned tuna, but is pretty firm about it: no second treat unless she “does the look”.

My mum doesn’t like cats and she doesn’t like clutter. She left a Christmas gift bag on the living room floor to see if the cat would hide in it.
