Saturday Musings - Why My Cat Is a Genius!

Saturday Musings - Why My Cat Is a Genius!

Pepper, my cat, is a living, breathing genius! She’s got the whole world completely worked out, organised and constructed to obey her every whim and desire. If only life could be so wonderful for us two legged creatures.

For Pepper, morning starts with a nap followed by slowly strolling over to her bowl so that she can let the rest of the family eat with her (it’s never the other way around for cats).

Just think about it for a second….Pepper has arranged for her servants (ie. me) to fill her bowl with the very best quality food, clean water and provide regular treats of ham, chicken and the like. She doesn’t lift a paw to get this undivided attention. For thanks I have the privilege of her letting me give her a pat. Wouldn’t it be great if the local supermarket deposited our weekly groceries in the cupboard and thanked us by doing our hair as well!

After breakfast, it’s time for another sleep and so she finds the warmest place in the house and curls up. In the meantime, her servants are working their backsides off so that they can provide her with food and lodging. I’m not sure about you but the last time I checked my servants weren’t anywhere to be seen. Worse than that the bank, electric company and all seem to get quite upset when I decide to take a break, let alone a nap each day.

During the day Pepper wanders into my study to make sure that I’m working hard for her empire. Just to reinforce her control over me and to make sure that I’m not messing around with my time she curls up on the floor and pretends to be asleep. What an overlord!

In the evening Pepper then graciously agrees to climb onto my lap as long as I provide her with a scratch behind the ear….after all, it’s too beneath her to do it herself.

So I’ve finally had a brilliant business idea! I’m wanting to build a device that turns me not into a fly (like the movie) but a cat. They seem to have life completely worked out.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Jeff,
Thank you for your kind comments....I must admit that Pepper provides an incredible amount of entertainment and fodder for writing about! LOL!

Have you ever messaged a person? On Pistachio, my cat, I use my thumb and first and second fingers to gently knead the scapula, which are like the two shoulder blades, which go up and down and you can see them when the cat is stalking something, then do large circles with my fingers on her sides. I message the sides of her head and go into her ears with my thumbs, gently, which she loves. Only near the openings of the ears.

To finish, if I am leaning over from my chair and she is on the floor at the base of my chair, Pistachio turns her rump closest to me, so I message her back near the base of her tail, and rattle it gently between my thumb and fingers, with one hand. Invariably, she breaks wind, which I can't escape since I am slightly leaning down to reach her. That is what Pistachio likes. She doesn't like traditional petting, but the circles on the sides, and rattling her behind from the top between my thumb and fingers of one hand. I never pet her, just message.

Thanks for that Louise.....I presume that you mean massage and not message though. :)
