    Any ideas how I can 'sound' like a cat?

    Well... To write a monolgue for humans to read, you ought to personify the cat, giving it human traits that it doesn't necessarily posess.

    Write it as a human but slip in some thoughts a cat mighty typically have... Like being side tracked by a bird or 'cleaning' itself, so the reader knows it is a cat.

    How many words have you got to write? 1000?

    That sounds really good!

    Just personify it. Discuss the 16+ hours a day in which you sleep, how little you actually care about your owners, etc. You could look at Garfield or Simon's Cat for ideas, maybe.

    I would probably go along the evil cat line;

    Others ask me, 'when did you first begin to have homicidal thoughts about your owners?'. In response I have to say it was the night they smacked me for eating all the chicken and threw me out into the rainy night. No normal, sane person would do that to their most beloved, I told myself. Thus, I began to plot my revenge...

    Off-topic for a minute, but who is that in yor sig? I've seen him and his face looks annoyingly familiar...

    And OP, to sound like a cat, you need to think about what makes a cat different from a human, and just include those characteristics in your monologue, as well as what kind of things a cat would be talking about or worrying about etc.

    Only because it's never happened. :rolleyes:

    I quite like the portrayal of cats being the owners of humans in a way, or being held captive, rather than being pets. :yep:

    The Cat's Diary

    Day 983 of My Captivity

    My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

    The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a "good little hunter" I am. *******s!

    There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of "allergies." I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

    Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

    I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously retarded. The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an elevated cell, so he is safe. For now ...

    Just dip your cat's paw in ink, prod it onto paper and hand it in. Cats can't write, they chase string.

    Why?
    They have had their claws on the human race since the dynasties of Ancient Egypt. In fact, the pyramids have been shown to be the ears of giant cat statues, the heads of which remain to be excavated?

    Haha that's actually quite likely :P

    That sonuds liek a really interesting thing to write about but I'd basically probably go with what most other people have said and go with the garfield kind of character there's a lot you could write about with that, but maybe not much storyline wise. Maybe the family it lives with could get a dog? Or a baby or something that would upset the cat in some way.
