Mommy has asked me to give you a cat's perspective. So I will do my best.
We cats are pretty sensible creatures. You humans could learn from us. We know what is really important: eating, sleeping, playing, and occasionally hunting.
We can appreciate music; I know my predecessor, Spunky, particularly liked classical. Mommy sometimes asks me if I do as well, usually when watching a program called "On Stage at Curtis." I find it ok, but I haven't really decided on a favorite genre of music yet.
We cats can be pretty amazing. Sometimes I run very fast right past Mommy and she wonders how I did that. I can also bound off of her bed very well when we play with my rope. And I can tell by the sound of the drawer opening when Mommy gets it out. And of course, I know to go to my hoop right away when we're ready for me jump through it and earn kitty treats.
I often watch stray cats pass outside. I'm not sure if I envy their freedom, or feel sorry they don't have a better, more steady home.
I guess that's about it for now. Oh, yes, Mommy said that last night someone named Suze approved a kitty portrait someone wanted to buy. Goes without saying that should have been immediately approved!
