My Cat Hates Me

I really think my cat Gamera hates me. He rushes out the room whenever I enter, he makes a point of tossing kitty litter all over the floor when he knows I'm the only one home, and he chewed a big hole in one of my favorite basketball sneakers. You can tell me that he is just exhibiting normal feline behavior, by I think the truth is that he is prejudiced against dead people.

Then again, he wasn't overly fond of me when I was alive, either.

at least you're not allergic ;)

(i actually got up in the middle of book to check for this blog. glad it's here)

Tommy Williams said...

I like you, Lucy. Encouraging a glass-half-full attitude is a very good thing.

In addition to not being allergic to cats, I also don't have to wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, get acne, taste milk that has spoiled, deal with mosquitos, catch a cold, get a papercut (that I can feel, anyhow), or wear gloves and a hat when it is cold out.

I could go on all I night--I really could, because I also don't have to sleep.

see...now because of all those reasons the differently biotic would be awesome teachers...no having to deal with the insane amounts of germs kids put out there...sick days would be a thing of the past! And being obviously unimpressed with tempertantrums or lame excuses. Poker faces are key for teachers...I haven't gotten my down pat yet...I'm working on it.

Tommy Williams said...

And I win every staring contest, even with Gamera, who hates me

Samantha said...

Aw, dont worry too much cats arent the most social animals in the world :]

Tommy Williams said...

true. And we like them anyway. Even though Gamera hates me, I love him. There, I said it.

I also enjoy lolcats.

Samantha said...

yes i am quite fond of my cats as well :]

oOMermaidBubblesOo said...

dont be affended by gamera
my cat does all that stuff too and im alive but i still love him

Tommy Williams said...

But does he love you? That is the question.

Best to assume that he does.

lexi anderson said...

i know what you mean tommy my cat hates me too :[

so your not alone there

Tommy Williams said...

I'm sorry to hear that, Lexi.

I don't know about you, but I've decided to repay his hatred with love. I'll let you know how it works out.

Lizzie said...

cats dont really like me either. i think its because i have five dogs!!! :)

Tommy Williams said...

I get a lot of very confused looks from dogs.

Nykii said...

I'm fairly sure my cat Camper believes he is a dog. He follows me around - doggedly, one might say - and he plays in water. Goofy little fluffball.

lolcats, Tommy?


I need to get me a basement cat.

Anonymous said...

Tommy Williams said...

Fae said...

dude, lolcats are the best! vote for mine if u ever see em. do u visit the political sites from the lolcat page? those are hilarious. =]

kris said...

i dont think you should worry about your cat hating you now if he didnt like you before you died anyway so just love him to death and gamora will deal

FrozenInsomniac said...

Well at least you have a cat. I have a lousy turtle and having a bad experience with a cat, don't think I like 'em much. Don't worry, Gamera will come around...someday

Tommy Williams said...

Frozeninsomniac--you have a turtle, and I have a cat named after a turtle. A giant, nuclear fire spitting turtle that can spin around in outer space. Weird.

Kris--Good advice. I'll try it.

Fae--I don't do much websurfing other than searching out zombie-related news.

And lolcats. I fear Basement Cat.

Anna Banana said...

dont worry tommy, im a living chick and whenever I walk down the hall, my cat attacks my ankles. I swear she's trying to trip me sometimes.

oOMermaidBubblesOo said...

why does every one complain bout their cats so much? i'd much rather have an energetic an kinda annoyin cat than a fat lazy one that sleeps all the time. yes i hate it wen my cat tears up my flip flops but i love it wen he snuggles up to my chin in the mornin an falls asleep. besides u never now wen a trusted pet will unexpectedly fall ill... you should apreciate your pets while you have them, you never know when they'll leave yer life forever.

XXtheXundeadXX said...

;']

Josie said...

Three things that might help solve this mystery:

1 - Cats have an average temperature of 100 to 102 degrees.

2 - They're lazy.

3 - They're not exactly users, but they do tend to... well, use people.

He's probably upset that when he sits on your lap he has to do all the work generating the heat instead of sapping up yours like a lazy sod.

helenamcrheaven said...

I agree with lizzie -who odly has the same amount of dogs as i do and has the same name as i do...very odd- cats despise me too.Even though im not dead and im proudly a blood bag cats dont like me as much as most of my friends lol

Anonymous said...

I have a cat. She hates everybody. I'm sorry about yours. Maybe he or she will get use to you after awhile... or maybe not.

Luna said...

i like cats a lot, but that's cuz most don't hate me. but dogs seem to needy for me.

Anonymous said...

My dog hates me i'm a db but my parents let me stay in the house. I really think my dog hates me. I'll be sitting in my room and she'll come in give me this evil look, jump on my bed, (yes i have bed only for lounging reasons) bare her teeth at me, then steal the closest thing from my room, and then just run away. Like i said my dog hates me. Before i died she luved me

candicevaladez said...

Okay so I have to say as awkward as it may sound I do NOT like cats one bit...but I LOVE lolcatz....does that make me weird? haha

April said...

Most cats seem to like me. Hmm... have you tried feeding him? You probably have, since you live with him, but it seems to work.

Blaine Miaso Inagaki said...

I wish I could help ya out Tommy, but I have 5 cats who barely interact with me whatsoever. So I suppose that you could at least say that he is noticing you, and not 'pretending' that you don't exist. Also what ever he does that is "against" you is done to your face, and not just behind your back like some jerks who can't learn that being around certain people or acting a certain way doesn't automatically change who you "are".

Then again, a jerk will (almost) always be a jerk.

And if someone is a genuinely nice person. It *will* show.

(P.S. you can use **'s around certain words to *help* emphasize them. In case you wish to help better express yourself in future blogs)

Haha, poor Tommy. xD I know how you feel. My cat Ebony was so EVIL. D: But, of course, I loved scaring him, and he always got me back by biting my leg. He'd steal my straws right out of my cup when I wasn't looking (he wouldn't play with cat toys, and I baught him a crap load), and when I would pet him, if I didn't get a certain spot, he'd bite me out of the blue. When he was in a good mood, he'd sleep on my lap (after drooling on me). I was sleeping one night, and I woke up because I couldn't breath, and he was laying on my face sleeping. XD. He also would pick on my dotson, Shakers, who is such a big baby that he ran and hid behind me. All in all, I loved Ebony (sometimes). My mom made me sell poor little Ebony not to long ago, and now I miss him doing all his little evil things. :(

Cats don't discriminate. Living or dead, they just like to annoy humans for the fun of it. It's nothing personal. Mine are particularly capricious, but I love them.

CandyLiesandFools said...

Yah, you cat just doesn't like you b/c your you...hey its better then what must humans do =]

Anonymous said...

Well...we could always kill the cat and see if it comes back as a zombie. I think even Tak would agree with me there.

Anonymous said...

He doesn't hate you, he just doesn't like you. And Tommy its a cat, some don't. Like people in the first place so its not just you.
