Me and kitty had a fight.
I was in a foul mood. Kitty started clawing the sofa I was sitting on. I told Kitty firmly, “Stop it!”.
Kitty kept scratching. I told him again. But he was defiant. So I gave kitty a nudge. Kitty tried to scratch me. So I nudged kitty again, and he tried to bite me. I told him to stop it, but he tried clawing me again, so I poked him (gently, but enough to provoke him) with my finger.
Kitty’s friend, “other kitty” realized that Kitty was being a bad kitty, and that we were about to fight. So “other kitty” quickly attacked kitty and ran away.
At this point, Kitty’s owner came and took him back to his room as he was still trying to scratch the sofa.
For the next few days, kitty was pretty morose. I was angry too, but after sometime I tried to make up and pet kitty. Kitty was still angry and tried a few scratches, but I let it go. I still tried making up with kitty, but kitty seemed sad.
Finally, a couple of days before kitty had to go home, we made up and he seemed like he was my friend again.
Now kitty has gone back to his home town. I feel bad. I should have kept my cool and not fought with kitty. After all, he is only a kitty, and I am human.
Can’t change the past. I just feel bad, and wish I had better control of my temper. Sometimes it just explodes.
People say I have valid reasons, but I think I should have more control. I read a lot of self help books, and try to be more conscious of my thoughts / feelings, but sometimes I still explode.
Costs me a lot of time being angry. I don’t need anyone to tell me its a waste, or at least I am aware of it or whatever, or that I am human.
I’m just saying I wish I was better.
