Tea With the Cat and Me

images-9

While my wife and I

sipped morning tea I told my

cat

she was

beautiful …

…..

the cat

squinted her eyes, flicked her

ear

(telling me she understood)

then,

dropped to the

floor

turned and

walked across the

back of the

ottoman she had been

 lying on …

(her tail moving along the edge like a curved round feather suspended in midair)

turned the corner, walked

past us

stopped …

then …

pointing her tail at the

ceiling

drew three circles,

dropped it to

the

left …

sashayed it

right then

straight up where she

twitched it

two or three times

before

lowering herself to the

floor …

… facing away from us …

with the

tips of her

ears

pointing back

(… toward where we were sitting … )

…..

 since I understand cat

language quite

well …

i decided to tell my

wife about the

language of

cats …

…..

 “ … cat’s thought vibrations link up to their

tails

the same way our

thoughts link with our vocal

chords … ,” i said …

…..

“… if you focus on the

nuances of their

behavior

(watching their tails closely)

and

stop your mind from

chattering

… (cats of course don’t think using words) …

their

thoughts

can be

understood quite

easily …

i have conversations with the

cat

all day

long … !”

…..

i looked over at the

cat …

one ear twitched …

…..

my wife

who had been listening

 quietly …

caught me off guard

blurting …

” … ARE YOU MAKING THIS STUFF UP … ?”

*****

for years I had

observed my cat’s

behavior …

but hadn’t read anything

to

support my

claims …

…..

all I could say was,

“wull I guess so but …”

…..

and that’s when I found myself

sitting alone with the

cat …..
