random mewsings #2

Since I've started this blog, I feel obligated to add to it on occasion. In that spirit of resignation, I'll attempt to add some pithy feline thoughts. I was thinking to myself last night, as one does while awaiting the sweet oblivion of sleep, that:

  • Cats, in general, are so often viciously maligned in cartoons. Why?
  • Cats tend to puke up their hairballs in twos. Why?
  • The ancient civilization of Egypt worshipped cats. Were they wrong?
[oh-oh.....hack... hack.. arghhhhh...arghhhhhhhhhhh (1)] .......... (wait for it) ............... [hack, hack, arghhhh... ahhhhhh]....

Now where is that damn feeder with his puke sponge? All I expect from him is to perform some minor household chores and, of course, to feed me. Is that asking too much? Well, is it?

I'm exhausted, so you'll just have to be satisfied with today's paltry contribution. Remember, dear readers, that I'm about quality, not quantity.

the official cat philosopher seal

This is the official seal of the Cat Philosopher blog.

While I'm here, I might as well educate you humans on the long
and storied history of cats. You'll find it here at Wikpedia. Read
and learn... and be humbled.

on this day ...

On this day in 551 B.C., Confucius was born. Among his many memorable sayings, here are just a few:

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection,
which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and
third, by experience, which is the bitterest.

And remember, no matter where you go, there you are. *

* Actually, this quote was stolen by
..Confucius. In reality, Henry, his
..noble cat, stated this c.512 B.C.
..while on his annual summer retreat.

Brian quotes

"The Family Guy", is one of my favourite TV programs and Brian my favourite character even if he is just a common canine.

: Hey, barkeep, whose leg do you have to hump to get a dry martini around here?

Peter: So did your therapist figure out what the problem was?
Brian: Yeah. He thinks I'm in love.
Peter: Oh my God...you can talk!
Brian: If dogs aren't supposed to eat dental floss out of the trash, why did they make it mint-flavoured?

more feline wisdom...

To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle.

This quote is often erroneously attributed to George Orwell. It was, in fact, first uttered by his cat, Ralph
(see below), who also famously said:

When are you going to change the damn litterbox, genius?
