I was feeling a bit down yesterday because I was beginning to lose hope that I would ever be able to effect any change in the way people think about cat safety. I decided that maybe if I got more assertive and really tried to make Myself heard people would have no choice but to listen. I felt a mighty roar welling up inside Me, and I rushed outside to My Outdoor Domain so I could let the roar out without breaking any windows in My Indoor Domain. I took a deep breath and then let the world have it!
I opened My mouth and braced Myself for what was sure to be the most deafening, blood-curdling roar that had ever been roared. Strangely, what I heard come out of My mouth was “MEEEEEOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!” Not exactly a roar, but it was still a fairly mighty meow. I’m hoping that My mighty meow reverberated throughout the city, and that all who heard it trembled in fear and immediately safely contained their cats. I’m not sure that anything like that actually did happen, but I’m going to continue to imagine that it did. Sometimes you need a little wishful thinking to make sure you don’t lose hope and stop fighting for your wish.
