“Philosophy? Philosophy? I don’t even know what philosophy means. I don’t know anything about ships, I shouldn’t even be here. I’m supposed to be the ship’s cat but I don’t wanna be the ship’s cat, I wanna live in some nice place back in England, somewhere with a big hot fireside and soft fur rugs with food that doesn’t have things in it, someplace where I don’t have to always work this hard for my keep. That’s what I want, but nobody ever listens, no one even cares because I’m only a little cat, I’m only a cuddly bundle of cute fur that hardly anyone cares about. If you’re a nice old lady reading this then PLEASE help meeeeow…” Nellie
Experience? I don’t have any experience. I’m supposed to be in charge of vermin and crap like that but all I want in life is to be loved and fussed, all the time if I can and to sleep when I want. Somewhere where the floor’s not heaving and moving all the time.
I don’t even like vermin, I don’t even know what vermin looks like coz I never found any. I know I hate cockroaches though because I saw one when I was only a little kitten, the thought of those rats and mice makes me shiver, even though I don’t know what they look like. Every night I have to wake up to go to work searching for things I’m frightened of, other cats don’t have to do that, I bet my sisters who I saw a long time ago don’t have to do that.
Please help meeeow. Please write letters and emails and things, you could even start freedom campaigns and things like that. I’ll come and live with you, I’ll sleep on your knee all day and purrrrr whenever you stroke me, I’ll be your special cat who loves and adores you, there’s nothing I won’t do for you, all you have to do is get meeeow outta here…
