Winter was almost over. The sun was getting warmer and Mergatroid liked to lie on the window sill to soak up the heat. It felt so good on his body! Not only that, he could watch everything going on outside. The snow was melting; people were out walking. Some of them even had dogs with them. Mergatroid was glad that he was inside because he didn’t really care for dogs.
One day the family decided it was time to do some cleaning. Not just regular cleaning, but washing and shampooing everything. The kids were in charge of their rooms while Mom and Dad worked on the living room. It took all day, but they washed the walls and the ceiling, dusted the furniture and were ready to shampoo the carpet when they realized that nobody had seen Mergatroid for a long time. They looked all over the house and in every room, but he was not to be found. Where was he?
When they finally found him, they had learned a very valuable lesson!
It seems that I forget things now more than I used to. I’m assured that it’s all part of aging, but that doesn’t help the frustration. Just this morning, I’m thinking to myself, “I know there were two things to do on the computer today. What was the second one?” Do any of the rest of you find yourself in that situation? Or this?
Let’s look at some cats who forgot things. The cat who forgot he was adopted.
The kitten who forgot to run fast.
The cat who forgot he shouldn’t be on the table.
The cat who forgot he gets stuck in the chair.
The cat who forgot she’s not a chicken.
The cat who forgot he never left!
The cat who forgot his license.
The cat who forgot to look cute.
The cat who forgot to lock the bathroom door.
The cat who forgot he was tired.
The cat who forgot to wear matching socks.
The cat who forgot he wasn’t home.
The cat who forgot who controls the red dot.
The cat who forgot how to get in the house.
The cat who forgot where he was.
I guess the answer to my questions about cats forgetting is yes. Seems like they do forget. Of course, you have to have the one exception! Here’s the cat that COULDN’T forget.
If you have a story about your cat, please share. Always enjoy your comments!
