Brief Description: Truffles is no ordinary cat – in fact she would claim that she is very special indeed, and who would dare to argue with her? Her fifteen-plus years of observing human behaviour, often mystifying and comical, have equipped her with all the wisdom and cunning necessary to use the human environment and its two-legged inhabitants to her best advantage and, as is the ambition of all cats, she has learnt how to make her existence as comfortable as possible.
In this short diary Truffles allows us to take a very privileged peek through her discerning eyes, as she describes her day-to-day activities (or lack of them!) and thoughts during one week in the summer of 2004 as she approaches her sixteenth birthday, and recounts an assortment of amusing anecdotes from her past, the last laughs most often being on the hapless humans.
What is quite clear is that twenty-first-century cats are a far superior species in terms of getting what they want, when they want and with the minimum amount of effort, and the very humanised Truffles is certainly no exception. She has her human carers well trained to carry out their expected feline-oriented duties to her exacting standards, is always one step ahead of them and knows exactly which buttons to press to get the desired effect … which only goes to prove that it is a cat’s life after all!
