Today my journey to celebrity hit a minor speed bump. In my research, I saw that Maru’s (the famous Scottish/Japanese feline) human had superior photography equipment. Immediately I understood the importance of this fact, and I quickly developed a plan to convince my human that she needs a serious electronics upgrade.
For several weeks I’ve put my manipulation skills to the test – I’ve strived to be as cute as possible, so that my human would repeatedly have the urge to snap photos of me. I have frolicked and lept and purred and kneaded and groomed and played and looked into her eyes soulfully. And tonight the hard work paid off – she came home with a new camera!
Unfortunately, it appears that a new camera isn’t enough. My human appears to have no concept of how to compose a beautiful photo. How is it that she managed to make ME look bad?
I regret to inform you that I will not be able to write another scintillating blog entry tonight. My human has insisted on replacing my Soft Claws today. While I honestly don’t mind having the claw covers on, I’ll still find a cozy place to hide for a few hours. Eventually she’ll feel guilty and try to coax me out with tasty treats. Last time I got tuna, which is a much higher priority than my new career as a public figure!
Just like any good businesscat, I’ve spent some time online researching my competition. I’m amazed by the number of mediocre felines with seemingly large followings. Every cat’s blog I see makes me more confident that some day I will be a star.
Look at Maru the famous Scottish/Japanese cat, for example. One of his major claims to fame seems to be his human’s large bathroom sink. As a connoisseur of sinks, I will admit that his sink really is fantastic. But the cat, not so much…
(As you can see from my photo, my human’s sink isn’t quite big enough to contain all of my splendor.)
My name is Pedro, and I am a cat. Welcome to my blog.
