My name’s Francis but most people, if they have a working brain cell, call me Frank, or Blue Eyes. And yeah, I was named after the Crooner in the Rat Pack, which is appropriate on several counts, I guess. My human said I sing like an angel and with my blue eyes, well, I suppose it was inevitable.
I’m a pretty cat, ya got a problem with that? A lot of Tom Cats are pretty. ALL cats are pretty, so if you want to start something, just let me know, cuz I’m never one to back down from a fight. So, like I said, I was names after the Crooner and believe me, I know what the guy sounds like cuz she plays his music EVERY DAY, ALL DAY AND SOMETIMES INTO THE NIGHT. I mean, the guy’s good but come on, he’s not the ONLY guy, ya know what I mean?
And there’s a nice looking Persian living next door. I see her in the window. She acts like she doesn’t see me but I know she does. I think she’s an Indoor, which means she’s probably pampered. Her name’s Polly. I was living hard when a human picked me up and brought me home. I stay in a lot, just to keep her company. I feel like I owe her. I tried bringing her presents, but she always screamed, so I don’t do that anymore. I was just trying to be NICE but did she appreciate it? NO, she did not. We had several funeral and everything, I mean, COME ON. So, no more gifts. I told her she can give anything she wants, to me, so she put a CATNIP mouse down in front of me. As if…right? Like that thing has ANYTHING to do with a real mouse. I’m pretty cool, so I won’t roll on it until she looks away, because I don’t want her to think I’m easy. The mouse is laying there, looking at me. It’s plaid. WhoEVER saw a plaid mouse? I know cats aren’t good with colors but PLAID? If my friends saw me I’d be a laughing stock. I know she’s trying to be nice but the thing doesn’t even move, unless I toss it into the air. I should probably throw it around and then lay on it, just to make her feel good. I’ll probably be busy for a while, so nice talking to you. Meow and, by the way, Chicago really IS my kind of town.
