Cookie: Why does she look so beautiful today? She makes me stare at her.
Fritz: Because today she’s happy. And when she’s happy, everybody can see it.
Cookie: Why can’t she be happy all the time, then?
Fritz (whispering almost to himself): Because she is human…
I’m going through my drafts again and this is the pilot episode of a short series I wanted to write about my cats. My two boys, Cookie and Fritz in their own world, talking about me obviously… Seems fun… cat wisdom.
Cookie got his name after the great Cookie Lyon in Empire and we also thought he was a girl when me and my flatmates first got him. I said he’s a boy but I gave up when my flatmates said he’s not. Not long after he grew the cojones.
Fritz is named afte Fitz in Scandal, the president of the US. I just felt he’s a bit german and I added an “r”. Makes a stronger impact.
One of them is a blessing in the shape of a cat, the other one is the Antichrist. I love them both to death for being so different. Call me cat lady as much as you want but they fill in my days with joy and mostly anger.
Maybe more episodes will pop soon.
It’s all love and cat shenanigans. Peace!
