My uncle copied the following “diaries” out of book that someone had loaned to him. He got such a kick out of the passages, having a love for both dogs and cats. I would love to find the original author in order to give proper credit. There are several versions of this floating around on the internet and none of them give credit, but I would like to, so if you know who the original author is, please leave a comment below.
The reason I felt the passages are blog-worthy, is because they highlight a very important tenet: To change your life, change your perspective. Enjoy!

Excerpts from the Diary of a Cat
Day 283 of my captivity: My captors continue to taunt me with the bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat while I’m forced to eat dry cereal. I’m sustained by the hope of escape and the mild satisfaction I derive from ruining a few pieces of furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.
Day 284 of my captivity: I attempted to kill my captors this morning by weaving through their walking feet. Nearly succeeded; must try this strategy at the top of the stairs. Seeking to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair; must try this on their bed.
Day 285 of my captivity: To display my diabolical disposition and make sure they know exactly what I am capable of, I decapitated a mouse and deposited the headless body on the kitchen floor. They only cooed and condescended, patting my head and calling me a “good hunter.” Hmmm – not working according to plan.
Day 286 of my captivity: During a gathering of their accomplices, they placed me in solitary confinement. I overheard that my confinement was due to my power of allergies. Must learn what this means and how to use it to my advantage.
Day 287 of my captivity: I am convinced the other household captives are flunkies, perhaps even snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems naively happy to return. He is, no doubt, a half-wit. The bird speaks with the humans regularly; must be an informant. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal cage, his safety is assured. I can wait. It is only a matter of time . . .
