My name is Wizard and first of all, I am absolutely gorgeous. I’m not being conceited here, it’s true. I’m sleek and all black, every bit of me, and I weigh a very impressive twenty pounds! I’ve worked very hard at keeping my weight up and staying buff. When people meet me, they stare in awe. Actually, I think I look more like an ocelot (admittedly a first cousin) than an everyday house cat. Every day I am not!
I allowed my mistress, Julia, to adopt me. She’s an astrologer and we live in a comfy little apartment in
San Francisco in the fog out near the ocean. Now, I
have a good life, I admit. I’m well
cared for, Julia makes sure I’m fed the very best of food, I’m brushed and
cuddled. She takes me to all my
vet appointments to keep me healthy.
In turn, I protect the apartment and I guard her when her clients come to visit. Believe me, I make sure they know I’m keeping a close eye on them when they’re in my domain! Julia’s clients are acceptable for the most part, but I worry about her because they tell her all their problems and expect her to have answers to all their dilemmas, no matter how silly and foolish. She worries too much about her clients. In my opinion, her advice is excellent. Maybe if they listened better and took her advice, they be better off.
It’s a hard job. It takes all my concentration, so as soon as our apartment is quiet I head for a treat and a nap. I like to nap. I’d prefer to roam around the neighborhood at night, but Julia won’t let me. She’s very overprotective. She lets me wander during the day though. One of my favorite things is to hop from our back stairs over to our neighbor’s roof. The surface is rough and gravelly and I like to roll around on it to scratch my back. We even have a little back yard with grass and I like to hide among the hedges and flowers.
