Mayor Rob Ford – my view point – Daisy the cat

Mayor Rob Ford – my view point – Daisy the cat

I have to speak out! I hate TV. Harper, Ford, Cruz and it goes on and on…..

I have been listening to the TV, all they had on was that poor chap Mayor Ford with a big problem. He has an eating disorder, then the big brother of his bullies him, and others put him on a diet.  When I am stressed I go to food. My vet told dad that he cannot put me on a diet or exercise as it is not the best for my health. I take so many insults from family and family friends who are derogatory  and unfeeling. I am healthy but they just see my fat. However, unlike Mayor Ford I know how to deal with others who are unfeeling. I have a great ego and know myself.  I am fat because of my genes. I am fat get off my back or I will scratch you. I saw the Mayor on that video and he sure would loose the fight with me. 2 feet vs 4 feet.

From my rug in front of the fire – I see are two separate problems. One is mental health and the other is the law or governance. Oh my, using a lot of her language. Mum will get me for this.
1) When we see someone not taking care of their health we discuss this but unlike animals humans cannot be dragged to the vet (doctors for them). We have no rights in this area. Poor humans, they have no skills to live on the streets – yet we see them there. They do not get treatment when they are mentally ill or have a substance abuse problem. Many go to jail and the hard line conservatives want to build more private jails ( I heard that from Mum) which get paid lock people up. So beds are cut in hospitals for addiction, untrained people in substance abuse counseling making money. I understand why Mayor Ford won’t go. He knows how much money has been cut from programs as he is cuts public health in Toronto. Perhaps, like rich folk he can go to the USA – Betty Ford and get treated.   Enough about his mental health or lack understanding his feelings.
2) Breaking the law. How did the police not catch him with all the bags getting to his car, the video and all the young black me around him in jail or dead. He is the top dog (oh my, I mean human) in Toronto ( why do they use us to describe them?) and he is an example and makes decision on big stuff. That is not allowed. That can make a lot of people suffer. If you cannot manage your life can you manage mine – or a city??

Why is so many mixing the 2? For a cat that is elementary dear Watson.
Get with it Toronto! Make him quit, no leave of absence. As I cannot vote because I belong to another race and live in Vaughan – no vote on this.
Brother Ford, Go to a clinicmaple leaf images,
run away from brother Doug,
take your medicine and get well.
The other area belongs to the police and the law.

The Vet

I have a great vet but I do not like him. He likes taking my blood. That is rude. I think he is a vampire or he would not take it every time I go to see him. NO, that was a mistake – I am dragged there. They put me in a cage- legs first! can you believe that. So disgusting. How can they do this to me, dehumanizing actions. That is against my rights. The Animal Rights should know about this. Between the vet and my parents they have me taken for granted and think they can do what they like in my best interest.
That place stinks of dog, but do not let my cousin Suki know. Mum was trying to tell his parents to take him there. Wait till the Vampire Vet gets his blood. He will  have move to drink. Nasty man. I think I should report him as well.

Better stop complaining but I was upset that day with no one to talk to. I should have vomited in the cage and given them more work. Mum sits with me in the back, rubbing me and saying nice things  because she does not want me to be afraid.  That is nice.

Bye now, Daisy

Dogs and Cats. Love goes around if you know how.

Dogs and Cats. Love goes around if you know how.

Sukie is my first cousin – posted his picture- so they have informed me. A dog for a cousin and he is mostly white. Me, I am truly biracial. What is the world coming to – Dogs and Cats!
He is cute but jumps a lot, not the way I behave around humans. I really don’t like dog behaviour as they are such sucks, get a backbone doggies. Looking for affection from anyone, not a good idea. I tried to tell him that – act like you don’t care and they will do the tricks to make sure they have your attention. There is no telling him that. He adores his family, I do too but they will never know this. Sometimes when dad talks to me I ignore him. Can’t do that with Mum as she has had cats since she was a wee little girl ( can you see her as a little girl, must have been a bossy brat.) Uncle Richard loves Sukie but he is like me a cat. Pretends he has his love controlled with Sukie. Mum said I send love messages with my eyes, she has my soft spot. Dad just loves me to bits and I have him under my control. I got to give Suk a few lessons to control his family, especially Uncle R. Aunt Odi just smiles. I think she is like Mum and knows the games we little family members play. The guys are easier. Sukie, wake up old chap.

The idea of love is difficult for humans as it has so many conditions in their relationships. For us in the other kingdom, we play we eat and we sleep. Sometimes we fight. Love is always there for us in all that we do. We love to play, we love oh yes we love to eat and don’t ask about sleep. I am told I sleep 65% of my life. That is a lot of love. As for fighting, we love that too. Dogs bark and rarely bite; but we scratch. NO voice just paws with claws and at times a bit of teeth. That is love too. Love of self. You see, I just explained love and it is so easy. I can love you because I know how to love myself. This is the first step. The next one is to teach dogs how to love themselves 100%. That task is a bit more difficult. If you have an idea let me know so I can help poor Sukie. Either he listens to me or I will have to send him to a self help group with the 12 step programme. Oh my goodness, Mum told me to stop stealing lines from her pdf files. The Dog and love stuff is all mine, Chow for now.

PS: I do not like water or swim. Will give them a big bite if they try!!!!

My Aunt Aloma, let me tell you….

My Aunt Aloma, let me tell you….

Aunt Aloma, it is me Daisy.

I have a blog. Ha Ha before you. Well I have been using Mum’s PC and I tell her what to write. she hates being told what to do, you know that.
I know you like to travel, if you find a chap do not let him know about me as you know how men are about cats! Tell them I can give you a reference about how loving you are.  So watch out how you treat me the next time you visit. Remember, I now have the cards and you have to show me more love than before, and you cannot laugh at my being fat anymore.
Dad liked dogs first then he met Molly and Me. Ha ha, I am shaking as I laugh, he thought we were like dogs and we ignored him. Now I am number 1. I own him now and Mum can’t do a rat’s a__! She hated that as well, oh I control the house.

Aunt Aloma, you are so cute. You pretend that I am not as important but you love me. I know. You are not a cat person but you love me.
I hear you have a little one – a girl Ann. I know you love her but do not think that I will let you forget me.
I like to know if she is plump like me or I am a bit fatter? Not size just fat.
Can you make a cake for me? I want to give it to Uncle Richard for Odi. I can’t bake as I have paws. What a mess!
You cook, you sew, you travel – how do you find time? And you are on the phone to Mum! I must say you both talk for hours. What do you have to talk about for such a long time. Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish.

Oh, I have to go to sleep. Love you in hot CA, USA. We are hot too  this July 2013 so I am not in the Sun-room what a pain. I own the sun-room and they don’t know. Humans like to think they own me but I own them. Can’t travel like you – they feel pain in leaving me and I make them feel so guilty. I love guilty. But I have another tacit for you which I will not share with the world. Anyway beautiful lady, I must say good night. Love you and Hugs, Your little Daisy

The Racoons are out front – can I stand my ground

The Racoons are out front – can I stand my ground

The TV is on and everyone is concerned. Why? This talk of justice.
No one cares about how I feel about the racoons. I don’t like that they climb on my roof. I have rights.
They have larger eyes than me. Mum has taught me that we are all part of this community, me part of them?
No way. I am different. I am an indoor cat, white and black. Some call me black and white but why?
That is racism. White racism – I mean I am allowed to use the word white to start with, does not have to be black and white.. Mum said I could not get a gun in Canada so that this idea is just an American idea of bullying.
Humans have real problems and I should not be making fun about the stupid laws they make.

I have no problems with the racoons as I never get to see them. I am locked inside. Poor Racoons have no home, no food and no one to pamper them. So when I stand my ground I am saying I am thankful that someone is there for me and takes care of me. Not that stupid law that kills other people. The justice system is all wrong in the USA and they should not try and teach the world to be more like them.

Canada is multicultural that means it includes me as well. I am staying in Canada and will not move to the USA

My understanding of life

My understanding of life

It is not what you say but what you do. Humans think that dogs with their big voice are much smarter than us cats – I hate calling myself a cat. Not that I am ashamed of being a cat but living with humans I find myself a bit different from ‘cats.’ Forgive me but I am not a snob. Just trying to understand life.
What is in a label? Cat, dogs, humans? It counts when others look at you.

As Daisy – use my name! I am me. I do not communicate much with my voice but when I do they are thrilled to hear it. You see, watching dogs I learned that giving too much of yourself will deplete the respect others have for you. You must know when to give information – oh!!! and to who. There is nothing more disturbing than someone you just saw goes on and on. Too close. I say to Mum can you make them shut up (she is a therapist – and just has that face) but of course she does not do anything. She know who she can trust with information. I hear them talking to each other – Mum and Dad but they keep stuff to themselves. Letting others know or asking questions for information makes for strange bedfellows. I know I sleep with Mum and Dad. They are always talking to me so I know more about them then they know of me – get my point? Of course they trust me as I never talk about other people, let alone myself.

Now about them tricks! No cat who has any pride performs for others. This is because we respect ourselves. We know that we were not born to jump around to make others feel they have power over us. I do not have to perform to be liked – who cares, I love myself. So we have taught humans how to respect us. We know what they are saying and asking but ignoring them creates a certain amount of respect. They can like us but they have to earn our trust.
Trust is there but they know if they go to far that we have claws. Boy, they hate getting scratched. If we get bugged we just ignore the person and distance ourselves from them. No way are we going to have a relationship with someone that is not to our standards. One has to have values. We cats know how to ignore people. Watch me.

What am I saying about life? Is is about respect, trust and boundaries. I have a wonderful life and everyone loves me. What do I give in return? well, they have to work to get my attention, they have to think that I need t hem, they have to get my affection – now you get my drift??  Have fun trying to be me. Can you???? See the rewards. Hugs from Daisy (really?)images[1]
