an she needs to bee whacked a lot.

meowww for dat kittee grass for rollinin, an they gif me yumyums. Ize so
big now Ize can't squueeez under der bed to swat ze wiggleses on der feet.

still feelz yung. My gurl hoomin, Meoomm, shaves off my fur. Ize do really
look like a geezer!
Cornflake - Me Cornflake was an orphen when on cold howwowen mummy tookd me in.
She hadent kitty food so she feeeeedeed mi corkflacks and iz the same calor, so mez
name is good.

a crr winder. mez mummy nursed mez to health and even thoz mez name iz Tornado Iz
iz callllled Little Boy. Mummy named mez that caus I waz so smaall andz week, now
mez lives up toooo mez name. Ourz mummy woves us lottts too. Can youv come playzz.
Louise - Ize misunderstood. Hoomins run from me. Even new hoomins abandon neerly efurry day!
Louise (cat of few words)
Raz - My owner ( I call her that because it amuses her to think that she owns me
when we all know that it's really the other way around) is the only one who
does appreciate my finer qualities. The human that she is married too, on
the other hand misunderstands me totally. Just because of one little, tiny
mistake I made 13 years ago. He never lets me live that down. But hey, I
was a kitten at the time! Come on, big deal! Alright, so I was feeling a
bit playful. I was gracing him with the very high honor of my attention but
he didn't appreciate it. I bit him in a place that it seems that male
humans don't take to being bitten. I was only playing! So what did he do?
He tells everybody about it. Like it's my fault that he didn't know I was
playing. So now, even though it's been 13 years, when other male humans
come over to visit, they still look at me and say, "Is that the one?" And
they back away from me. In my own house! Can you believe it?
Steviekins - My humans don't understand me. They think that when I do something that
it is funny and they laugh, when I am not trying to be funny at all.
Jason - is thought of as a beggar and a
thief, when he's just plain hungry all the time! (Yes, even though he is a
bit overweight, he still feels hunger pangs.)
Tucker - is misunderstood cause his hoomans think he is a pain in the
butt. He is *always* underfoot. But he is just super-affectionate! He wants
to be, literally, as close to his hoomans as possible. It's not his fault
he weighs nineteen pounds and doesn't fit into their laps anymore!
Smokey - is misunderstood cuz her hoomans think she is aloof and
cold. She is just nervous about being picked up. She knows that she can allow
a little bit of petting, when she's in the mood for it, but unrestrained
petting can soon lead to picking up. And after what she went through as a
kitten, she just doesn't want to be picked up at all, ever again.
So that's that.
Yeti - I am a misunderstood Russian princess. Nobody in my home apart
from the humans, give me the respect i deserve. i am very clean, being
black with white gloves and socks, always spotless, and the other
furry creatures in this house constantly need a reminder that i am Royalty.
La Freyetta - I'm misunderstood by the other kitties too. Merlin Bengal
brought me home an now he iz meen to me all da time. I am silver grey an
pretty my mum sez an Merlin is jelus as he is ginger.
Lily - Thanks for the warm welcome to da club! I'ze soso happy to be a
memfur. Dis pooter bizness is all new to me, cuz I'ze just a baby kitty. But I'm
sure it's all going to be funfunfun! I hisspitted at Jason today, and he runned away!
I'ze training all de kittiez I lifs wif now, efen do dey'ze much bigger dan
me. My eggstra toes are a big help.
josie - Iz wanna join the Misunfurrstood klubb
Iz misunfurrstood becuz my mine own mommie refuses to learn how to
speaks Meowmeownese! Instead, Iz hasta speak the bean's "English"!
Elfin - My humans do not let me outside any more
and there are so many neat lizards and birds to catch ( good kangaroo
rats too)- I used to have so much fun and then they moved and won't let
me out anymore- they say it is because they don't want the coyotes to
Squirt - Pleeeezzzzeeee cin I juin da club....Shadow wunt letta me plud en da
loungi cuz ise nut an memfer....en ise misunderstood reel bod cuz mi
humin wunt letta mi plud wit da clay humins shee mukes. Ise wud nead a
blew buw und Shadow sez cun hes huve und blew buw toos? Tanks fur
luttin mi juin.
Vincent - When I first came here, as a toddler
, the TV show, "Beauty and the Beast" was very popular, and I was
given the elegant name of Vincent. However, in the intervening years,
I am more commonly called "Yo, Vinnie!" on a really bad day, "Rotten
Ralph." I do not deserve this. I am very good with kittens, and it
doesn't matter if I chase the girls; it's been years since I can
remember why I chase them, anyway. I think it has to do with an early
trip to Dr. Y's office. When I snuggle up to the Boss, she calls me
"Sucker." I do not like this. I love the Boss. She loves me, too,
and cuddles me a lot. When I chase the girls, though, the Boss shoots
me in the butt with a water pistol. Dr. Y. told her to do that. I am
not too fond of Dr. Y.
I think that I am sufficiently misunderstood to join your Illustrious

Miss Kitty - None of the other kitties in the house understand me.
I don't want to play or ruff house. I just want to be left alone!
Travesty - I am misunderstood because I try to love all my human
friends. But when I give them love bites and knead my claws into them
they get mad.
