Playing with Cats…

“In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.” ― Terry Pratchett

This photo is of my partner’s hand scrungling (what you do to cats’ bellies with your human hand at your own peril, they may accept it and purr approvingly or attack it, sometimes both) our neighbour’s cat. It’s kind of funny that my partner’s ring should have the skeleton of a fish on it (ring by Crazy Pig Designs).

The internet loves cats. Not all humans love cats. Cats are indifferent to this. To us. Love us, hate us, we don’t care, just obey us, they say. Kidding, or am I?

Fascinating beings. Are they as wise as they seem? What do they know that we do not? We can learn a lot about life from cats, but we sometimes are a bit reluctant to learn such things…. especially from animals. Humans are such sensitive creatures prone to doing that judging and hierarchy thing. Yawn, says cat.

Our neighbours love their cat. Their cat loves them too, but it quite likes us too, we’re in its territory. Our cat… thinks this cat needs to back off its humans, it was here first and it is not sharing. Ah… well…

  1. Seeing this photo reminds me of how much I miss cats. I wish I could have some. I live where there are too many coyotes and I do not feel right about keeping my feline friends detained within the house only.

    • I wasn’t too keen on getting a cat, due to this and that, past and present, moving around a lot and stuff, my partner convinced me otherwise… due to a series of weird and wonderful events which led us to the local animal shelter. He fell in love with a wonderful cat who now owns us and gives us so much (although the cat in the pic is our neighbours’ cat and our cat does not approve of his interloping). Our cat is ex-feral so we were advised to keep it housebound for a while. It’s not that interested in going outside, which means less worry about foxes, of which we have plenty in the area, and the busy road close by. Sometimes life just works out a certain way… humans need to stop thinking things through so much, says cat 😉

    • Not sure what your cat would think about your reincarnation theory about her previous life 😉 A dog!?! My cat occasionally yaps. It’s strange.

      Cats are fascinating, with very defined personalities, and they adjust themselves to each human with whom they interact. My cat is very different with me than with my partner, he rarely gets woken up, but then again I am the regular food dispenser. If my cat could figure out a way to open the food packs…

    • And now I have a new word too! ‘Bongling’ also applies to what the brain does inside the skull when you realise you’ve just been outwitted by your cat yet again 😉
