Thus Spoke The Cat

Cats are talking to us via the position they choose to occupy in a room. “I love trumpeters” or “I prefer the sexy violinist”: which of the instrument cases of your guests does your cat occupy? “I’m a tree lover”, “I would like to be as sweet as a Koala”, “do you love me like you love your plates and pots”? “Come on, I’m ready for a space shuttle training” (waiting in a washing machine): Our friend Catou in Brussels sent some pictures of her cat Zaya to us as document of modern global cat language.

  1. I’ve always loved cats. They are just so darned agile. And they ooze with personalitiy for the most part. :) Nice shots. Just for the record, I like the flower pot poise myself.

    • P.S about this cat Zaya in Bruxelles (she had a male companion: SOUL):
      in the middle of the night, 2 a.m. a cat patrol came up to the roof top bureau,
      where I was still working / editing some videos:
      the cat patrol: first: SOUL, second: Zaya, – they made as good inspectors scratch tests of sofa and bed and chairs; they made a body push to my legs and then went down the ladder again …

  6. Meow meow, purrrrr. You are the cat’s meow! Very cool shots Frizz. I have one cat left from a family of 4 and she is just 19. She can curl up and snooze anywhere.

  7. Great photos. I am a “new” cat owner..four years. Wrong phrase…I had a cat move in that allows me to live in her house. It quickly became her house and makes it known. Having never had a cat before my daughter and her daughters gave me Bianca, a rescue cat from the local shelter,
    …they didn’t want me to “be lonely” so a cat was the “cure”. Well, I don’t know about relieving my being “lonely” but my boredom is nil as I have taken to recording her silliness/aloofness, and choices of communication by body position or where she chooses to occupy.

    Great idea for posts…
    Thank you,
    Peace,

  8. Aw, adorable! I don’t have a cat at the moment, as I had to leave my two when I moved from UK to Australia. I miss having cats and their crazy ways around the house though, so I’m hoping to adopt a cat or two later this year.

  9. Perfect captures! My darling is a “HERE I am, adore me” type. He curls up on the computerr keyboard, on top of my crochet wool and pattern, pushes my plate of food aside, plonks on my chest and rubs his head on my chin as I lay sleeping. Very demanding! But I love him!

    • yes, our cat likes sleeping in cardboard boxes (she has some favorite boxes with socks or underwear in our bedroom) – or creeping beyond my duvet during siesta: warm and dark; outside our cat crosses her arms over the eyes:
