Ennui

The marbled cat sat in the hall a baleful eye on a marbled ball. Not even that could lighten his mood so he wandered off to find some food, which he sniffed and licked and sniffed some more, then sloughed his claws on the kitchen door, then arched his back and gave a stretch and coughed and hacked a hair ball wretch, then licked his *** and licked his paws, wiped his ears then a long, still pause, as though an idea had entered his head, then wandered off to find a nice, soft bed to rest his bones for an hour or two, for life is tiresome when there’s nothing to do but lick and eat and stretch and all that, when you’re a pampered, lazy, marmalade cat.

Cats do think they own the place and can wrap their owners round their claws, Emilia : )
