My cat looks at me with such indiff’rence
I almost can’t abide
Yet turns on the charm and nuzzles my arm
when she wants to go outside
Why oh why do I live at her command
to serve and my pride debase?
When it’s terribly clear when I’m itching her ear
she’s just waiting to scratch off my face?
Cats are the kind of animals who like to order us not vice versa. It’s amusing to read about your cat. We have two they are the same as yours, yet we love them and take care of them. Do they think we are foolish, I wonder?
Generally, I find the nuzzles outweigh the scratchings. And it’s a good thing too.
They do. And most of the time, the scratches are just loving reminders to step off.
Cats are so fickle. Or else master manipulators. This was so fun!

They are both! Lol
They are so manipulative! She looks like a sweetie, though. And worthy of your lovingly exasperated poem.

She totally worships me–she just likes to PRETEND indifference. Deep down, she is a lover.
