Today I had an intellectual day - Snowball would be
impressed (if we were speaking).
Wrote a poem entitled DesideCata. I am thinking of
becoming a cat laureate!
Stroll placidly amid the noise and haste and remember
what peace there may be in a long tranquil nap. As far
as possible, without being in any way humble, be on good
terms with all creatures - with the obvious exception of
dogs. Meow your desires loudly and clearly and
occasionally listen to others, even your human, for she
may be calling you for dinner. Avoid the company of
fleas, they are vexations to both spirit and body. Enjoy
your achievements - particularly wallpaper lovingly
scratched and pieces of string thoroughly chased. Keep
interest in your career, there will always be a need for
good mousers in the changing fortunes of time. Be
yourself; especially do not feign affection - except
when you need a warm lap to sleep on. Neither be cynical
about the love of cream, for through your charmed and
enchanted existence it is as perennial as the grass it
Take kindly the council of the years and rejoice in the
fact that you have nine lives.
Nurture arrogance of spirit to shield you from sudden
misfortune such as getting stuck up a tree. But do not
distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born
out of getting less than twenty hours sleep in a day.
Beyond a wholesome discipline be gentle with yourself
and groom yourself frequently. You are a cat of the
universe, so much greater than humans and dogs; you have
a right to be served. And even though you may sleep
through most of it, no doubt the universe is unfolding
as it should. With all its snacks, adventures and
peaceful dreams, it is truly a beautiful world. Be
content. Continue to be happy.
Adrian overcome the evil Killer and find love and
I am in love! The most beautiful white Persian
has just walked through my garden. Unfortunately my
inconsiderate humans are out so all I could do was gawk
passionately at her from my bedroom window. As she
slinked through the hedge I’m sure she glanced back and
smiled at me. As soon as I can get out I will search
relentlessly until I find my soul mate.
I met my darling White-Beauty in the park this morning.
Her real name is Snowball – such a pretty name. We went
for a romantic walk along the canal and past the Sewage
Works. She told me everything about herself; the naughty
things she did as a kitten, the human family she has
adopted and all her likes and dislikes. What she forgot
to tell me is that she already has a boyfriend – Killer!
When he spotted us on the canal bridge rubbing heads
he was not amused. It took all day for my fur to dry
Met Snowball on the way home. She wants me to win her
heart by challenging Killer to a duel. Really, how
barbaric. What century does she live in? Modern
etiquette dictates that the way to woo a lady-cat is to
present her with a love token such as a decapitated
mouse or a comatose robin.
