Why My Cat is Sad

Author Tom Cox has five cats and writes about them. He is also the genius behind the Twitter account WHY MY CAT IS SAD. It chronicles the misadventures of his cat The Bear, who is sad for a lot of reasons.

The Bear adopts a pacifist lifestyle and prefers to spend the day following me around, staring at me with his big saucer eyes, which seem to contain all the world's sadness. I did once catch him sitting alone with a dead mouse but I think another cat had killed it, and he just wanted to read some elegiac poetry to it.

Cox also has an account called WHY MY CAT IS SMUG. This account is for Ralph, the cat who is smug most of the time, which is part of the reason The Bear is so sad. And then there’s Shipley, whose Twitter account is MY SWEARY CAT. Shipley is brash and vocal, and his Tweets are often NSFW. There are also two cats who don’t use Twitter. Read about all of them at their blog.
