Seeing Eye Cat
by Len Horridge
in Britain have started a programme to use cats
as well as dogs as support to help people with
impaired vision (as we cant call them blind
people). Whilst dogs have proven to be excellent
at this role, there are never enough to meet
demand and cats have proved to have higher IQs
with a more developed sense of danger. They are
highly intelligent and, if trained, will
outperform dogs in many areas. Professor Bright
of Halls End University of Scunthorpe says
that, in years to come, cats will be as valuable
as dogs in this vital area of disabled support.
I never volunteered but I knew this was important.
Personally, Id prefer to be asleep but they
fed me well and, after a few tricks, they fed me
wheres that To Do list they gave me? Oh,
Im sitting on it, silly me.
Watch that chair will you. Too late. Third time
So, what am I
doing here? Theyve shipped me out from that
nice University place with all of those bright
people with cream and little delicacies and
theyve put me here with this dumb person
who keeps shouting some name or other,
Buster, Buster! all day long and is
constantly bumping into stuff in this pokey
little flat. Bump, there she goes again. And she
never turns that television off though she never
looks at it.
Will you stop
the bumping!!! Some people are trying to nap
around here! Blimey OReilly. Hey, and make
with some food soon will you?
Well, it was a
short lived career at University and I liked it
so this is some sort of purgatory, I suppose.
They treated me very well and I liked those tests
Will you STOP
that bumping? I mean, what does a cat need to do
to get some rest around here? Lets get that
To Do List out. No, lets not. Oh, look , a
mucky bit on my fur. Ill just clean that up
and, then, time for a nap
