Pussy Letter

Dear Hyoomn,
You’ve been mostly kind to us. Caring, feeding, spoiling… Thank you! But I’m not your toy, not your child and not an ornament (even though you’ve bred some of us to be just that). I don’t need your protection or control. I’m a resilient, powerful being just like you. I love to play, bask in the sun, run around with my friends, have babies, chase and hunt at night. I adapt to my environment, just like you, no need to take responsibility for us. We love the feasts you leave us, I believe you call them garbage. It’s plentiful, yummy and my friends and I have a ball digging through the bags you leave us. They are not dirty or disgusting to us. We LOVE them. Stop projecting your values onto us. If we look dirty to you, don’t touch us. We won’t bother you. Don’t automatically assume that we need your help, need to be saved or that we need to look a certain way to be happy. We love hunting other critters. It strengthens their species and prevents overpopulation. We also get hunted by larger critters and that’s good too. While we do feel pain, we don’t suffer like you do. Stop projecting your suffering onto us. We accept injury, pain and death just as we accept health, joy and life. It’s all part of the cycle and we have no value judgement about any of it. Death and pain are unavoidable whether you think you control it or not. Nature, as we, are neutral about life and death. We embrace it all. Keeping us enslaved by your values and projections may give you the illusion of safety and comfort, but it’s creating fear, sickness and is not sustainable. When you control us; control whether we live or die, whether we reproduce or not, whether we go outside or not, when, how and what we eat, you’re creating separation and disharmony in Nature. Sooner or later you’ll pay a very dear price for your shortsightedness. We’ll be pained and you’ll continue suffering. We may look appealing to you; meet your standards of beauty. But let’s face it; have your beauty standards made any of you happy? It doesn’t make us happy either. Imprisoning us may make us fatter, live longer but why do you think a long miserable life in captivity is better than a shorter happier life in freedom? Who are you to make that decision for us? Maybe we prefer to enjoy life to the fullest, without fear and take the chance that it may end earlier than you would like. Who are you to cut my genitals and control my reproduction? Would you do it to your own race? (It’s arguable that some of you need it but I won’t go there). Why don’t you set me and yourself free, let mother Nature, in her wisdom, decide what’s best for her balance and trust that she’ll take care of us all? Yes, some of us will die, some will be injured and all of us will be stronger, smarter and more resilient. If you feel called to help, feel free. But don’t prevent us from living a full life just because you can’t handle all aspects of Nature. Life is indeed sacred, and so is death. If you don’t fear our freedom, we won’t fear you. We add so much beauty and life to your environment. Having us around fills you with joy and relaxation. It reminds you that you’re not alone. Let’s face it: when we’re happy, you’re happy. Why cage us when we can spread joy all over your streets? We do this in many Mediterranean towns. Come visit sometime. You don’t have to “own” us to receive our gifts. You may feed us if you want but don’t feel responsible for our survival or good looks. When we get dirty, we lick ourselves clean. When we get sick, we find a quiet corner and sleep it off. You should try that, it works great! We don’t need your poisons and torture equipment to prolong our lives unnecessarily. No thank you, keep that to yourselves. Quality is more important than quantity. We, unlike you, trust in Nature. We are Nature (and so are you, dumbbell)

With licks and fuzzy rubs,
Paws, your neighborhood pussy 🐾
