What Lives Outside

It's really hard to be an indoor cat,
especially when the sun is shining,
and suddenly the critters that live out there
get lively~~

I can watch what's running round in the treetops
from my attic window,
but it's just not the same as chasing it.

I recently learned, too,
that there is a cat outside, who looks alot like me.
Let's call her White Cat.

She won't let anyone touch her,
but she hangs around and watches our human,
perhaps she knows that our BTLO (don't forget that's Big Two Legged One)
is basically kind to cats.

She's really pretty~

~~she's almost as pretty as me!

Hi from Squeak!

You should see
the sun at our house!
Usually it's snowy and gloomy
in March where we live--

It makes me feel SOOOOgood!

Origami Cats, with thanks to Gilad's Origami Page

This blog has been taken over by a human on vacation!

Thinking 'bout origami 
and came upon this fabulous page
with tons of origami cats.
Here is a sample all of few.

These came from Gilad's Origami Page,
and there are many more there to be enjoyed!

This last one is,
the way Pişi has been feeling lately.

If she'll let me,
I'll post new photos of her

Cows are sacred in India, and so are cats

Our Big Two Legged One discovered this information
and thought she'd share it --

She has found, in her travels in India,
that cows are truly allowed free reign in this culture.
Here's one she found
having a zen moment
on top of a rather large pile
of what appears to be garbage:

She was wondering if their were any 
mystical magical attributes 
that were assigned to cats,
and upon searching, she found out
about the mythological figure of Sasti,
who is the goddess of married woman:

She is " the giver of children, assists at childbirth, and is the guardian of young children. She is represented as a golden-complexioned woman with a child in her arms, riding upon a cat; hence no Hindu woman would under any circumstances injure that animal, lest she should offend the goddess and be made to suffer for it."  (found on )

Of course, there are other cats in India
that you wouldn't want to mess with either --

Right now, the BTLO knows one thing for sure,
she can't wait to come home and give us some respect,
because she knows we're missing her a lot!
