Cat Personalities

i will eat you, mouse

Cats have character, have a personality. They ain’t simple dogs. They are gurus. They have magic. They are yoga teachers. Do you need a good coach, because you want to practice effective meditation? Hire a sophisticated cat Sphinx! Everytime, when I need some hypnosis to feel better, I upload the portrait, large sized, of the black devil cat MAKI, who lives in the same house as my flickr friend Wolfgang Hermann, Graz, Austria. Every midnight, struck 0:00, following my good old BIG BEN surrogate counting to twelve I stare in the eyes of cat MAKI. Perfect, effective hypnosis! After a while my wife comes in, silently closing my laptop. I’m sleeping. No drugs needed. The companion of cat Prof. Dr. Sigmund Maki, my flickr friend Wolfgang told me, that the black portrait does not show how Maki actually is looking. Something has changed: 5 cats lived there in the house in Graz, Austria. But one morning a neighbour brought one of them, killed by a fast driving automobile, back home and gave the frozen body into the hands of Wolfgang. Cat Maki watched this – and all the hairs turned grey! Cats are fighters, gurus, heroes – but sometimes very sensible too!!!

Below some more cat personalities: some are guarding the sink in the bath, others are saying hello to the goldfishes (my cat Emily), others have their challenge by testing various methods of fighting vs. dogs, others even learned how to play a piano (Norah at youtube)!

    über MAKI

    wir suchten eine nachfolgerin für die verstorbene lieblingskatze ( SUSHI) meiner frau und fanden auf einem bauernhof eine völlig verwahrloste junge katze mit verklebtem fell, voll von ungeziefer und die gehörgänge der ohren durch versteienerten schmutz verschlossen.
    Wir nahmen sie mit und reinigten fell und ohren
    .nach der entfernung dieser stöpsel aus den gehörgängen hörte maki plötzlich und geriet bereits bei jedem leisen geräusch über den ungewohnten lärm in panik
    nun ist sie ein schönheit geworden, aber auch eine launische diva:
    wenn ihre augen funkeln und der schwanz unruhig peitscht ist es besser jede weitere störung zu unterlassen
    wenn sie etwas möchte kann sie sehr lieb und zärtlich sein
    wenn sie damit nichts erreicht beginnt sie laut zu schreien und behindert einen solange bei der tätigkeit bis man genervt ihren wunsch erfüllt


  8. another portrait of cat MAKI as a baby, something like Dalai Lama as a baby …

    I have a very sad story to tell Dietmar. My little cat — Kitty, got lost since last night. My fear is that this family in the building, not very nice people, who had a grudge against me because they dirtied the building and made a lot of noise, kidnapped her and went and either killed her or went and put her far away in some other part of the city. I feel so heart-broken. She loved to roam the garden but always came up every few hours. I have been looking all over, and I know she cannot fend for herself. She cannot hunt, and she was very sweet tempered. She never even hissed or spat. I fear for her, and I feel so helpless. Here she is:


    • even if she never comes back (because human beings are cruel / or because cats like to be free):
      you’ve written a wonderful tribute essay for her! for example:
      She loves smoked cheese, pizza, chicken, ice-cream and scramble eggs. She has learned to eat vegetables (by force and negotiations). She hates the t.v. – rushes at it when it’s turned on and smacks the screen silly. But loves the air-conditioning, and prefers the room where we keep it on. She knows her food comes out from the fridge, so when she’s hungry she rubs herself affectionately against it.
      of course I am not surprised about the fragment:
      in the villages in India people regularly kill their baby girls. They watch their own flesh and blood grow to full term in the womb, watch her take her first breath, suckle her, watch her smile, grow, reach out with her two hands, and then — feed her poison, strangle her, or drown her. I wonder what kind of psychological numbness that kind of task takes? I fear for the numbers of adults in India, in the thousands, that have killed their infant girls, and are walking around psychologically anesthetized. Are they normal people I wonder? Has this psychosomatic aberration become the normal state for us?

  29. That is very interesting, You’re an overly professional blogger. I’ve joined your feed and look forward to in quest of extra of your wonderful post. Additionally, I have shared your site in my social networks


  30. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
