My Conversation With the Cat 

While my wife and I sipped morning tea I told my cat she was beautiful …
she squinted her eyes, flicked one ear … as if to say she understood …

she, dropped to the floor turned and walked across the back of the ottoman,
(her tail looking like a curved round feather suspended in air turned right …
turning right again … she walked past us, and stopped where she pointed the tip of her tail
at the ceiling drew three circles dropped it to the left sashayed it right then straight up again before sitting, faced away from us, her ears pointed back …

since I understand cat language quite well, I decided to tell my wife about the language of cats
“A cat’s thought vibrations connect to their tails the same way our thoughts link with our voice … .’’

pause …

“So, if you focus on their nuances, stop your mind from chattering (cats of course don’t think in terms of words) their thoughts can be understood quite clearly … .”

I looked at my wife and said, “You are aware that the cat and I have conversations all day long
aren’t you … ?”

I looked at the cat …

One ear twitched …

My wife … who had been listening quietly, caught me off guard saying, “ARE YOU MAKING THIS STUFF UP …!?”

For years I had observed my cat’s behavior but had not read a single word to
support my claims …

All I could say was, “Well I guess so but …”

… and that’s when I found myself sitting alone with the cat …..

      i have great relationships with squirrels .. but they’re even more ADD than dogs! forget chipmunks … their voices are too high … do you talk to your plants? i don’t … but, i HATE to step on my moss … i always feel like i’m hurting their feelings … we rent our cottage during the summer (after july) … i cut paths through the moss where i know the renters are going to walk … i transplant the moss, of course .. when i go back in june i’m putting up a sigh … Please Respect the Moss … They’ve Been Here A Lot Longer Than We Have … hope you don’t mind me taking up a lot of your time … i do tend to talk a lot but plants and landscaping are my passion …! in second place behind writing … not counting certain bodily activities .. i’m hoping you have a sense of humor that’s way out of the box so i don’t offend you with this comment … but .. have you ever felt like during high winds, especially in the spring … that you are standing in a huge stream of seminal fluid??

      anyway … i’m going to remove the moss from around my oak trees and cut out the round spots … i’ll do battle agains this fungus just like i do battle against the f____ing torpedo grass and potato vines down here … ! unfortunately you never win … the best you can do is control it … it’s like a cancer … thanks for giving me your knowledge … now have a battle plan … i gotta stop … i’ll send the pictures now …ks

    Very interesting! The only conversation I ever had with a dog was that a friend’s pet was trying to lick my face while I was begging it out loud not to ;) Never cats :p
