Here I am in my own private territory surveying my possessions. This is all mine, it smells how I want it to smell, and feels like it should feel. Mrs. Human insists on putting human toys in my territory, that is why I have so may strange objects, but they have nothing to do with me. I tried talking to them, but they give no answer. I told her I would prefer a wall, walls always have something to say. I could stare at them for hours, time passes so quickly. She finds a wall would not look so good in her garden (she means my territory of course).
The green things are quite useful. I can use their base as a depot for my recycled matter and I am sure the plants grow stronger afterwards. Mrs. Human agrees, because she says they are getting fertiliser. I made her a suggestion to improve their growth even more, but she muttered something about humans having their own private room. I only wanted to be helpful.
Sometimes it rains and water collects on the leaves. I wait until the rain goes away and then I have my own favourite water. It comes from the sky and tastes fresh and better than the water I usually get in my bowl. Again not according to human taste, humans just do not appreciate the quality of fresh rain, especially when it is a day old. It is comparable to human wine, it matures with time and has its own taste.
And now I must go, I see the neighbour’s feline approaching and he has no business in my territory, because it is all mine. I might have to have a few paw swipes with him to establish my ownership.
