So what is this whole bumper sticker thing about, anyway? Does every cat loving human want every other human to know about his or her addiction to us felines? I understand that being associated with a cat like me is something to be very proud of, but a bit of discretion is called for when it comes to these matters. After all, I don’t go around telling all the other cats I know that I am the owner of a couple of humans, and saying cute things about them. Really, there’s not much about them I would call cute, or lovable or even vaguely amusing. On the other hand, it is very hard to imagine a bumper sticker with enough space to talk about ME (or any other cat) and do me justice – I am a quite complex, beautiful, and intelligent creature, one that can’t be reduced to a clever proverb or silly saying.
Just as an example, let’s say you put a bumper sticker on your car or truck or RV (that’s where I live with my humans, as you know), and it basically sends the message to all other humans reading it (when they are close enough of course – their eyesight is very poor), that the inhabitants LOVE their cat or cats. First of all, this is an entirely unnecessary message – of course we are loved, and there is no cat-keeping human who would be able to live with a cat and not love it – that’s impossible.
Second, we cats do NOT need everyone in the human world knowing about our human’s addiction to us – it just seems like the wrong thing to do. We have enough to do what with training, maintaining and managing our humans without others interfering. I have had far too many people walking by and tapping on the windshield while I am trying to sleep after a hard night of teaching my humans to awaken at my call, thinking that they are being amusing or entertaining. A cat bumper sticker for the motorhome of any kind simply makes it more permissible, for some reason, for these displays of misbehavior to happen. The bottom line is that I don’t allow my humans to put cute cat bumper stickers on any vehicle I may be living in, either temporarily or permanently. I certainly hope that all other proud felines will keep a close eye on their humans, and stop this degrading and embarrassing practice.
