Humans and Their Machines

I don’t know what it is with humans, but they clearly feel the need to surround themselves with contraptions. Scratch that: I do have a theory as to why that is. We felines are self-sufficient. We have everything we need to hunt our dinner and bathe ourselves. Our bipedal pets have needed tools since time immemorial to survive and finally thrive. But there are inventions that confound me.

Take the vacuum cleaner. It makes a hellish noise and wrecks the olfactory landscape of our houses. Worse, it is dangerous. I have witnessed my bearded human get entangled in the long, thin cord more than once, like a snake trying to trip him. The large tube also got in on the action once, a boa constrictor trying to wrap itself around its hapless prey.

Ahem. Sorry about that. A squirrel ran by. Where was I? Right. Some of the machines are intriguing to a cat’s eyes. I noticed one such gadget during my last trip to the vet; it was an old-fashioned clock, the kind with “hands” to indicate time. Of particular interest was the second hand. It just kept on moving and moving and moving and moving, ticking and ticking and ticking and ticking… I’m losing focus just thinking about it. I couldn’t look away. Digital clocks don’t have that kind of entertainment value. I wanted to reach out and touch it. I’ll be looking forward to watching it again when I inevitably go back.

In short, humans, some of your creations amuse me. Keep making them, but not too loud, alright?

This is also a strange one. Why does it keep turning itself on?
