 What Hoomans Want by Missy the Cat 

Funny stories as related to Missy by her feline friends. Learn about Catapedia and Feline Einstein. 




    Meow, and welcome. I’m Missy the Cat. I’m what is known as a tabby cat. According to Catapedia, tabby coats have swirls or stripes in either gray or orange, and we bear an ‘M’

 on our forehead.      
      I’m a Polydactyl type of cat, otherwise known as a Hemingway cat. We Polys are gifted with five or six toes on each paw, compared to the standard four. I have twenty toes and my front paws, or I like to call them ‘my hands’, have four toes and a THUMB. I’m sure I could hold a pen and write this book, but why bother when I know, if I use my feline wiles, my hooman will do it for me. What gives me such an idea? Who do you think is writing this book for me?  
     These 'cat tails' are true stories as told by Scroggins, a dumpee who lives in Rocky Mountain National Park and is befriended by a mountain man. Katzie is a petite feral stray who is loved by an elderly German lady. Daisy Mae is Himilayan and a princess, until her hoomans bring home an oaf of a dog who constantly tries to catch her. Diggory's hooman sets sail aboard a large vessel and assigns Dig the post of First Mate. Together they explore the waters off Mexico and the Pacific. Tank is adopted by Ethan, a handicapped boy in a wheelchair. They love to fish together until the unthinkable happens. Black Kitty lives in a semi-wild area in the Sierra's where one of her adventures finds her trapped. This is what they learned about What Hoomans Want.
