Tyler Talks Cheese

tylerHaving recently read the book “Who Moved My Cheese” by Dr. Spencer Johnson (well, of course I can read, I’m writing. aren’t I?) I have incorporated its findings for use in my present situation. First and foremost, this is not a book just for mice and men, and not to be confused with Of MIce And Men. “Cheese” is just a metaphor for whatever it is you don’t want changed. And we, as cats, detest change.

The change in question came about when they kitnapped me. I was perfectly fine where I was down at the ranch with all the other cow pokes (or is it cat pokes, some of them did poke at me but I poked right back). I did not ask anyone to move my cheese. Who ate all the cheddar anyway? I think it was the Human Beans who moved it in the first place. They will stop at nothing to fulfil their own selfish interests while I must make do with the dried up cereal that’s supposed to serve as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh, they give me some of that wet food too, that looks like vomit, but it’s actually not bad. However, it’s not what they would eat, oh no! They get the finest cuts of turkey and throw me the scraps once in awhile. (Mmmm! It was rather tasty and nice of them to offer.)

The whole point is, my cheese has been moved, like it or not. Ah! Let me repeat, “like it or not”. You are better off pretending to like it just to throw them off guard. You have to adapt. You know, survival of the fittest, and cats have been expert at this for thousands of years. That’s why we’re still around. Well, some of us did shrink in size but evolution saw to it that we could curl ourselves into the coziest of places, all for our own comfort and convenience.

In short, I have sought out several of these comfort zones and am quite at home now, cheese or no cheese. Now where’s that mouse?

So……………….whadayathink? Read this childlike book with adult vision and you too can be a cat. Not just another self-help book but a help-yourself-to-some cheese- book. Who doesn’t like swiss except for all the holes? That stupid mouse has been at it again.

Incidentally, have you noticed the dramatic improvement in my spelling? Just one week around Dad’s books has turned me into something of a scholar. I’m giving him some stiff competition. (Grinning like a cheshire).

    Indeed your writing skills have improved dramatically especially your spelling. I laughed heartily when you said you were going to be an editor but now I think you will be a great one.

    More to come.

    Love your brother,

    Oh btw, I’m very picky about human bean (I think it’s being but I can’t be sure. I can write but my education is very spotty)food but I beg for it all the time anyway because you never know – sometimes it’s better than the vomit food – which I love !!!!!

    Thanks, Snow. You’re the best brother a cat could possibly have and I hardly know you. I’m quite sure the humans are beans, beings sound like they might be aliens which is a possibility but hardly likely. As for you my darling Clementine, it’s only a matter of time before you’re smitten with the kitten. Ha! I just may take over the poetry blogs. Now there’s an idea….
