I have had it up to here with the social media. I don’t want friends in real life. What makes you think I’d want them on a computer?


My humans think they can sleep past 5 a.m. and there will be no consequences. As if I am going to wait for food. That sounds terrible.


Humans love selfies. I know this because they always ask to take them with me. But what is up with those sticks? I hardly see how you need them to take more pictures of me.


I have to look my best around the clock—so humans, please stop covering my windows with that awful fabric. You’re ruining my sunspots…and my 16 hours of beauty rest.


I don’t care that it’s your birthday. I don’t like weddings. And I really can’t stand baby showers. I’ll be home hosting my kind of party—a party of one—and you’re not invited.
