Unrequited Love

It’s hard when the stripey, gray object of your affection is out of reach. 

She’s not physically out of reach, of course, as you could easily stretch out an enormous paw to caress her whiskers or, if you’re feeling bold, sit up on your hind paws and sink your great muzzle into her velvety flank to breath in a draught of kitten perfume.

“NO Cosmo! DOWN!” the Humans will cry.

“HISSSSSS!” your beloved will screech, while somehow simultaneously reminding you of the restraining order she has taken out against you in the most intimidatingly legalistic terms she can muster.

Who knows? You may even get a bloody nose. You’ll probably get a bloody nose. Kitten claws are sharp and you saw your dearest filing hers assiduously on the remains of the living room furniture just prior to claiming her current spot.

Sometimes it is best to love from afar.

  1. makes me think of my heart-cat, Zorro. He will use those claws of his at surprising times, just to keep all off guard, even with me, his only tolerated human. Hence the name “Zorro” for the scratched “Z” on the back of my hand fro, 4 week old claws!!!
