This is my first post of fiction, aside from a few short poems a while back. Enjoy!
My name is Jack Tivenbot, and I am a cat.
I am only telling you that so that you understand. It helps to explain my meticulously obsessive mind and my tendency to alternate long periods of forgetfulness regarding my appearance with lazy afternoons where it seems like all I’ve gotten around to doing is licking myself.
“Jack” is not my real name. Neither is “Tivenbot”. Both names were taken by me when it seemed appropriate to do so. For this phase of my life, the one that you and I are sharing as we speak, it is good for you to know me by this name.
I am trying to find home.
