I have tried to get my human to get me a phone. I tell him, look. I am a diabetic cat. There may be times where I need to get a hold of you right away. So you need to get me a phone. Well, even though this is logical, he told me that I do not need a phone. Besides, he told me, you can’t give yourself an ear stick to test for your blood, so how could you know when to call me?
I told him I wanted a phone anyway, but he still said no. Well, I tried.
But there is one cat who succeeded in getting a phone, and he uses it quite a bit to text his human. They are very funny. At first, his human shared just a few conversations via text. But people wanted more, so Catster has now turned this column into one that comes out every few weeks.
In the latest edition of Texts from Mittens, our feline hero confronts the challenge of autocorrect. You humans have a site called Damn You Auto Correct. Well, we felines face the same challenges. And some of the results are very amusing. For example, check out what happened when Phil the dog was bothering Mittens. Mittens complained to his human, and hilarity resulted.
It’s not just auto correct that trips up our feline text messenger. He also sometimes gets overanxious about things like food.
And sometimes, it’s not food that we want. Sometimes, if we don’t get our water, it’s a bad situation. Especially if we are used to getting it right from the sink.
These are just a few of the texts that Mittens sends. I do not think my argument that being a diabetic cat means I need to get a phone will work anymore. Thanks for ruining that argument, Mittens!
