Speaking Cat and Existentialism
I've been inspired by KirstenM's brilliant links to Ninja cat clips to show you a recentish pic of our resident feline with 'cattitude.' For blog purposes we'll call him 'Tigercat,' if his fur-flying all claws sharpened virtuoso performance at the vets just after we got him is anything to go by maybe 'Jekyll and Hyde cat' would be a more appropriate moniker. A year later and with vaccs due again, we braced ourselves for an encore and what would you know...he was good as gold. Twelve months co-existing with GP dog must have had a calming effect. Although I doubt he'll ever be a true lap cat, he's a worthy successor to the late great 'Gothcat,' 'Kung-Foo Viking' , and last, but definitely not least, our much-loved little 'Scaredy Cat.'
Of course, all this is just an excuse (thanks, Kirsten for paving the way) for linking to all things cat - two clips sent me recently by Ms and Mstr GP: if you're still struggling to understand the labyrinthine workings of the feline mind, here's a simple guide to How to speak cat. Then if that still fails to make any sense, you might find solace in the musings of good old Henri, philosopher and existentialist. Non, je ne regrette rien....
