Time For A Nap

When you can't figure out what to do, it's time for a nap.

Hiding

Last time I saw her,
she was peeking out from one of the bookcases
next to the fireplace.
She's the first cat I've ever seen
trying to pretend she's a condensed version
of War and Peace

Woof Wednesday


POODLE: My life is a mess. My owner is mean, my girlfriend is leaving me for a German shepherd, and I’m nervous as a cat.

COLLIE: Why don’t you go see a psychiatrist?

POODLE: I can’t. I’m not allowed on the couch.

Freud N Cats - to set the record straight


TIME SPENT WITH CATS IS NEVER WASTED – SIGMUND FREUD




Contrary to popular belief, Sigmund Freud (the father of psychiatry) did NOT coin this quote. 

It has been attributed to him erroneously. 

In a letter to his friend Arnold Zweig he wrote: "I, as is well known, do not like cats". 

As a matter of fact, Freud was an avid dog fancier and had many throughout his life and even in his psychiatric practice. 

One of his dogs, Jofi (pictured below) would know when the session was up, rise from his resting position on the floor and leave the room. When she did that, Freud told his patient that the session has ended.

However, COLLETTE (pictured above) DID say: “Time spent with a cat is never wasted” a slightly different version of the Freud attributed quote.

Walk The Line

Purring Parcel Of Paradox

A cat is a purring parcel of paradox, 
a cunning collection of contradictions. 
A cat is lazy and busy, dainty and savage, 
affectionate and aloof, greedy and finicky, 
sound asleep in one instant, 
and awake and stalking in the next. 
A cat is a limp puddle of softness, 
surrounding a steel-hard 
and ever-alert set of muscles. ... 
A cat has the face of a pansy flower, 
and is just as velvety. 
A cat holds infinity in her eyes, 
and your heart in her front paws. 
- Leonore Fleischer
