What can the knowledge of ... cats give people?

431

A still from the film "Samurai and the Cat". Cats have always had a special relationship in Japan. They were revered and ... feared. It was scary to kill a cat for a commoner. And for this they had to hire a samurai. But when the samurai looked the cat in the eyes, he could not kill her, and then they became friends!


Through what channels does information come to us, people? Smell, touch, hearing, sight ... Do we use only these channels, and are there any others? And the domestic animals around us, for example, the same cats ... Are they as simple as it seems to us at first glance?

While you live - run, play
Trample the furry tail.
You know, cats go to heaven
Through the black holes of stars
Snow will fall on the edge of the sky -
From here until the morning.
You yourself will find the path, my friend,
When the time comes.
Nika Batchen. "A song for a little friend."

Information field of people and animals. How often in our VO people start arguments about the generation of the Unified State Exam, they are surprised that children do not read books, although the question always arises: are they not their children? Why is it they, “the most reading citizens of the most reading country in the world”, have not inspired them to read? In Dagestan, they say: "There are no good youth, where there were no good old people." This, by the way, is just about our "critics", although people in the same Ancient Egypt wrote such things many millennia ago. But there is a certain mitigating circumstance here. Although psychology and pedagogy are taught in our pedagogical universities in all forms, we do not know a lot about the work of our brain. We write that culture is not passed on to children at birth, that the child's brain is "tabula rasa" - "blank slate". But ... there are many examples when children copy the behavior of their parents, with whom they have never lived together. And the cats? Yes, yes, those same familiar domestic cats ... I have been living with them since childhood and noticed that their behavior has changed a lot over time. Moreover, even in those cats that practically do not communicate with their fellow tribesmen at all. Or do they still communicate, but in such a way that we do not notice it.


A still from the film "Samurai and the Cat". Almost the same cat has lived in my family for 19,5 years!

By the way, the same cats have lived next to people for thousands of years and are quite accessible for study. Do we know them? We don’t know, just as we don’t know ourselves. But maybe just today some moments associated with the same cats and other animals will help us, people, to solve the problems of the same upbringing of our children, even if not even now, but in the future? In the meantime, as a "preface", let's get acquainted with the fascinating history feline, which, by the way, many readers of VO asked me to talk about. How does this relate to the subject of HE? Yes, the most direct ... although, perhaps, not quite direct.


Surprisingly, in my childhood and adolescence, cats did not lie on their backs, their paws spread in all directions. Didn't even think about it. And now, judging by the photos, they do it. Why? Have you agreed among themselves that you can do this?

Legend says that when the very first kingdoms-states were just emerging on the lands of Egypt, a boat floated along the Nile River, and there were powerful people in it who managed to escape during a catastrophe that destroyed a great and ancient unknown civilization. And there was a small cat among them. And when the boat swam along the coast, overgrown with papyrus and palm trees, the cat jumped to the ground and wished to stay here forever. A beautiful goddess immediately descended to the cat from the sky (probably it was Bast herself - a goddess with a cat's head) and promised her honor and patronage in this new homeland, but only on condition that the cat would take the people living here under its protection ( !) who will need her help.


Again, no cat would have allowed a human to stroke their belly at that time. All four paws would immediately grab onto his hand (and grab!), And then teeth would be added to them. And now - what you want, master, then do with me!

Then the goddess said that both the cat and her offspring would not be in danger here, that for her these were blessed lands, but if she left them, then she would be in trouble!

Judging by what happened next, the cat goddess liked the offer, and she remained in Egypt. Moreover, exactly where her cat's paw set foot on the land of Egypt, people built the large city of Bubastis, in the middle of which there was a beautiful temple dedicated to the cat goddess Bast and all her descendants.

For several millennia, there was no better life for cats than life in ancient Egypt. Cats reigned sovereign in the minds and even more so in the homes of the Egyptians. Indeed, in addition to the most cat-headed goddess Bast, several Egyptian gods, including the supreme god of the Sun Ra, provided their protection to cats at once. In every, even the poorest, house for graceful hunting cats, the best food was always ready, and the death of a cat was a real tragedy for the Egyptians. Each Egyptian mourned the deceased cat even more than his deceased relative, shaved off his eyebrows as a sign of grief, arranged for her a truly royal funeral, embalmed her carcass and took her to the city of Bubastis, where there was a vast cemetery specially arranged for cats. When archaeologists found it, it turned out that there were at least 180 mummies of cats buried in graceful sarcophagi.


And cats, it happens, forget to remove their tongue. And then they look silly in the photographs!

The laws of Egypt severely punished anyone who offended the furry purr. A person, even if he injured or killed a cat by negligence, was subjected to a painful execution for this, while the one who killed a slave only reimbursed the owner for its cost. In every house there was to be a basket with a lid, where the cat should certainly be placed in the event of a fire. Otherwise, the Egyptians believed, she would certainly throw herself into the fire and burn. The only way to extinguish the fire was ... by locking the cat in a basket!

And grateful cats honestly fulfilled their part of the contract concluded with the Goddess. People turned to them for health, many sick people made pilgrimages to Bubastis every year, and after worshiping the cat goddess, they were healed of ailments. Cats protected numerous barns from rodents, which turned Egypt into the richest power in the Ancient World.


"My name is from a walk!"

It was believed, and not without reason, that cats have a rare ability to "negotiate" with almost all spirits from other worlds. By its mere presence, the cat made the house of its owner impenetrable for any dark forces. That is why the Egyptians so often depicted cats on the doors of their temples and the palaces of the pharaohs. And how could it be otherwise, if the god Ra himself did not hesitate to borrow her fighting skills from the cat when he fought with his enemy - the insidious snake Apop?


J.R. Vegelin. The cat's funeral rite (1886)

It is clear that other peoples also appreciated the contribution of cats to the prosperity of Ancient Egypt and made a lot of efforts to get them. Egyptian law prohibited the sale of cats to foreigners, and the kara was very harsh for theft and export of a cat abroad, but despite this, the smuggling of cats was a very profitable business, except that robbing royal tombs was even more profitable.

What can the knowledge of ... cats give people?
Mummy cat from Egypt (Louvre)

And although the Egyptians even created special teams looking for stolen cats and returning them back, they could not do anything, since cats multiplied quickly and soon filled the entire Mediterranean coast, and then began to move deeper into Europe.

When snakes literally flooded the island of Cyprus, it was Saint Helena who brought cats there from Egypt, and they cleared the island of this creeping evil. A special monastery was built there for cats, which, when the bell rang, went hunting in the morning, and when the bell rang twice in the evening, they came back to feed. Then these trained cats were distributed to the peasants, and they continued to destroy the snakes throughout the island. It is interesting that this monastery exists in Cyprus to this day ...

The then Europeans also greeted the cat in the most enthusiastic way. Some kings even issued orders that in each village there should be at least one cat, so that there was someone to destroy rodents. And people also noticed the magical properties of cats. For example, in the early Middle Ages in Scotland, a legend appeared about the magical kingdom of cats lost among the hills, in which exclusively black kitties with a white shirt front live. Wielding magic, these purrs helped worthy people, and punished the unworthy. In order to fulfill this destiny, they left their wonderful kingdom and lived in the house of a person they had chosen, whom they protected from evil forces and shared with him their wisdom. According to legend, King Charles I had a cat from this magical kingdom. For many years she protected her master from all troubles, but then she died, and a month after that, the king was dethroned from his throne and executed on the scaffold.


Cat in the coat of arms of the commune of Sobrio (Leventina District, Switzerland)

The cat has become a heraldic animal - you cannot imagine a more honorable fate, although it cannot be said that it was depicted on the coats of arms so often. Figures of cats also appeared on knightly helmets, that is, they became kleinods. The following qualities were valued in cats: fearlessness, vigilance, love of freedom and independence, as well as ... amazing vitality. Everyone knew that a cat can fearlessly rush at an enemy, even if he is larger than her. It is not for nothing that cats have found themselves in many coats of arms, including, for example, the coats of arms of such French communes as Chaurs (Champagne-Ardenne region), the coat of arms of the commune Saint-Rémy-aux-Bois (Meurthe and Moselle region) and the Wust commune (Saxony-Anhalt in Germany ).


On the Burke coat of arms, a cat in a gold collar is a helmet-mounted decoration!

But then the second part of Bast's prophecy began to come true, according to which cats should not leave Egypt. Rumors about the magical abilities of pussies frightened Christian priests, and they, out of ignorance, declared the cat a "devil's offspring", accused of helping witches to do their black deeds, and the witches themselves, it turns out, can turn into cats. It was argued that "the breath that passes through the skin of a cat is a plague, and if she drinks water and a tear falls from her eyes, then the source will be poisoned: everyone who drinks from it will inevitably die." Cats, especially black ones, were caught by the inquisition all over Europe in order to burn them alive at the stake after cruel torture, while whites were thrown from the bell towers on church holidays! The healing and protective powers of cats were so misunderstood that poor animals were killed in order to add their blood and fat to various medicinal drugs. The crushed bones of cats were added to a love potion, and noblewomen and commoners tried to treat their beloved with their meat, in order to thereby kindle the "fire of love" in their hearts. And in order for the cats to constantly “protect” the houses of their inhabitants, they were immured alive in the walls of newly built mansions. Well, in the countries of Eastern Europe, sowing in villages began with the fact that they caught the most prolific cat and buried it alive at the edge of the field in order to collect a good harvest from this field in the fall. No, by God, our ancestors were such savages that it cannot be said. Worse than the Papuans, for nothing that in pants ...


Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861). The spirit of the cat takes revenge on its abuser

But cats, even with their death, managed to take revenge on their offenders. Taking advantage of the fact that cats stopped catching them, rats and mice multiplied in an incredible way, and with them plague came to Europe - a terrible "black death". Only in the first half of the XIV century from the plague epidemic in European countries, almost three quarters of their population died, which became the payment for the unreasonable torturers and executioners of the cat tribe.


Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892). Cat with a golden bell. The price of a cat in Japan was very high, so their owners hung a collar with a bell around their neck. Rich people used the flowers of the red Japanese camellia Hichirimen, also a rare and expensive plant at that time, as a collar. Well, a bell or bell was required to make it easier to find a cat by its sound. Those poorer were limited to a strip of bright red silk

Moreover, there are legends that cats can punish those who have offended them even after their death. The Japanese, for example, believe that a cat tortured by a man will definitely return to his tormentor and will pursue him in his sleep and in reality until he repays him in full for all the suffering he has endured. There are many legends that tell that a killed cat can appear as if from nowhere, jump on its executioner and push it out of an open window, or throw it under the wheels of a speeding train. The ghost of a cat or cat can easily enter the abuser's house at night and strangle him right in bed.


Sawaki Sushi (1707-1772). The nekomata cat takes revenge on its abuser

Well, about our days, we can say that cats have found a worthy place next to people. Today it is our most popular pet living in our home. If you treat a cat well, then it will certainly repay its owners for it. After all, the dwelling in which the kitty happy with everything lives can not be touched by any evil, and a person with evil intentions simply cannot cross the threshold of such a house. There are cases when in England cats rescued their owners during the bombing during the war years, not letting them into the house or driving them out of the house, on which the bomb then fell! That is, cats can somehow foresee the future, in other words, they live in the information field not only "behind", but also "ahead" of themselves. It's no secret that a cat can cure its owner of any disease, even sacrificing its life, and there are examples of this. So, one fluffy beautiful cat watched for a long time the torment of its owner, who was bedridden with a serious illness, and then rushed down from the eleventh floor to pay for his health with her death. And here's what is surprising: as soon as the cat crashed, its owner immediately felt much easier, and he himself was able to go downstairs to pick up his deceased savior. Such stories are enough to think about the fact that "there is something here" and ... there were people who thought about it to the extent that they quite seriously consider them "agents of aliens"! And the strange custom is to launch a cat into a new house or a new apartment? It is believed that if the cat entered the house, then everything is fine. You can live. But if not ... What does a cat see there that a person does not see? In a word, cats receive some information about the world around them ... in an unknown way. But is all this inherent in cats alone?

        The wealth of the Russian language was always surprising - what cat does not like to sit on the windowsill and philosophize about being, forgetting about the daily bread (mouse)! The etymology "about a cat and a cat" can be left outside the scope of fabrications.
        Just dryly add to the agreement between a man and a cat, the first point was the presence of a "window" in the hut!

              Pelargonium had not yet been brought from South Africa.

                I didn't want to touch on the etymology, but let's invent it.
                Cat (cat, kitty) has the same sound in the overwhelming majority of Indo-European languages. Thus, the "cat" as an animal was known to our ancestors for as long as possible. I would say even much wider than fire (agni). It follows from this that our ancestors were constantly in contact with the mustachioed-striped.
                But the word cat is directly tied to the detail of a person's home. A window, and not a simple dugout, but huts or huts. Thus, the process of domestication of cats is tied to the window, and that in turn to the eye (s). So the Slavs got a cat as a pet rather late. With the advent of high-quality and fairly comfortable housing. But whether the Slavs had the first imported kitties or the aborigines, I don't know. The first is simpler, the second why not. Given the sufficient number of native breeds in Russia. For example, Siberian.

                  Probably all the same alien cats are imported.
                  This means that the distribution from ports began.

                  In the Asian part, it could be from Central Asia.

                  Although, of course, this is only a guess. I didn't seriously think.

        Thank you very much. It is very interesting, for almost six years now, as a cat lover, he did not even imagine that cats are so smart, they understand everything, as his wife says, it even becomes scary. My cat and I play hide and seek throughout the house. And he begins, he even came up with his own rules.

        unexpectedly ... I remember my favorite, the Persian, I lived with us for 14 years, a family member was a full-fledged one, I left the rainbow six years ago, I don’t dare to have a cat anymore, I probably won’t live so much, but I don’t want to leave it to someone else. , thanks for the topic.

          For another reason, we don’t start anymore. You get used to them so that as a family member it becomes a cat, and when Fedka, our common favorite (he came from the factory across the road), is gone, we can’t stand such too strong experiences for the whole family.

They sleep nearby, make friends, lick the dog's ear. He took him under his protection. Doesn't allow to offend ... The cat has a concrete roof !!!
            The cat goes to the neighbors to catch mice and rats. This morning at the entrance to the house there was a rat of a decent size ... A symbiosis of cats, people, dogs.

                Yes, the whole story. RFT (Russ. Black. Terrier) started purposefully. Once there was the Airedale Terrier, then the Doberman Pinscher. The house is private. The times were dashing. Wife, two daughters. I wanted a bigger, more reliable dog. Cynologist - the police captain advised the RFT. He motivated this by the fact that why do you need a shepherd (Caucasian, Central Asian) you are not a shepherd. Chernysh was bred for the Soviet Army, reliable and not whimsical, endlessly devoted to the family, loves everyone whom the owner loves. Mouse, cat, rabbit. They believed. Took the first RFT and fell in love with this breed. They are smart, intelligent, silent, calm, beautiful. Now the second Black Russian is nine years old. We do not close the door to the house, not during the day, not at night. Handsome black giant!
                That's how we live . Three cats, Gosha the dog and us. We help each other live!

I went fishing at four in the morning, he followed me, the tail is a pipe and not so obtrusively trailing behind .. He came to the place, he threw a fishing rod .. the sunrise .. the cat squints one eye, others look at the float .. as soon as the float begins to twitch, the cat in the rack .. I pull the crucian carp out, he takes it off the hook .. the fish will eat and the trail is gone .. and so regularly .. his neighbor killed him, he strangled the chicken .. still since then I can’t forgive my neighbor for that .. I shot him with a gun ..

          "What can the knowledge of ... cats give people?"

          Let me express my humble opinion.
          Not cognition of cats, but against the background of the relationship between a cat and a person - cognition of a person. The further, the more the community of people is divided. True friendship, when a person is ready to give his life for a friend, becomes a rarity, if such still exists, at least as an exception. In the so-called "civilized" society, non-binding friendships have become widespread, when you seem to be surrounded by understanding people, and in case of trouble you are left alone, and each of your friends will always have an important reason to refuse you help. And if there is one who is ready to help and really helps, while carrying his victims, then many of those around him consider him a sucker.
          And against this background, the only friend who will not betray, in addition to the dog, is the cat. Zen is full of videos of how cats visit the graves of their beloved owners and lie on the graves for a long time, cry, yearn. There are videos that show how small cats throw themselves at hefty dogs, protecting children.
          For the most part, we have become worse than our pets. And perhaps this is a sentence. If we don't change our mind.

            Lyudmila Yakovlevna, I don’t agree with everything .. "Zen is full of videos of how cats visit the graves of their beloved owners and lie on the graves for a long time, cry, yearn. There are videos showing how small cats rush to hefty dogs, protecting children."
            These examples are primarily true for dogs, cats in such cases are a big exception .. no matter how cat lovers would like to think differently .. Parallel from felines with Hachiko, etc. is there? No .. and that's okay ...
            Because just with the bulk of cats - "friendly" relationships .. and with dogs .. but with dogs - for a dog, the owner is "god", and for a cat, just a maximum of "friend", and more often a servant ... this is not I came up with, read the literature on animal psychology ... for cats the norm is to live at 2-3 houses, go to where it is nourishing, etc.-which a normal dog in life will not do ... Still, you should not equate cats with dogs - they are absolutely different in psychology and behavior model animals .. the dog serves the person, the cat is the maximum friend .. while the dogs are an order of magnitude more loyal ..
            But the fact that there are exceptions, about which you wrote, of course I agree .. lucky those people who have pets - an exception to the norm .. And cats can caress much better)

              Eh, colleague ... I agree with you. My Kandey still lived in two houses, periodically living with the Greek neighbors. The owner had a boat, fished in the sea, traded, Kandey always had fresh meat. And then I found my cat in a junkyard not far from my house. No, the neighbors did not kill him, both cried, like our entire family. I suspect the cat died due to worms, there are a lot of them in the sea fish, I saw with my own eyes a tapeworm in a neighbor's fish. But she did not notice in time that the cat was sick, she decided, since he is not there, it means that the neighbors have it. And the dog - yes, devoted friend, that's right.

    A cat has more instincts than a dog. For example, if a cat licks your hands - be careful, it tastes like that. And having determined that this is meat - it bites, begins to eat. I myself have seen this more than once.

      I don’t know, according to my observations, if a cat licks your hands, this is a high degree of trust. In cats, each other is licked only by members of the pride (family). In cats, in 7 cases out of 10, they are blood relatives. In the rest - if they live together for a very long time. Human only on a special occasion. Possibly related to reflexology - the relationship between the kitten and the mother. The kittens just grow up and do not measure their strength.
      The rest? Sometimes I doubt that felines live by reflexes.
      For example, my Sonya gave her daughter two years ago to live in a wardrobe. It itself opens and closes it. Two cats steal sausage from the refrigerator from a neighbor. The funny thing is that it is not being devoured, so "protest demonstration"! About the universal signal of dissatisfaction “I’m silent about sneakers” !!!

Doesn't wake up in the morning !! Waiting. Unless he likes pens. And capricious to feed. Apparently she was brought up at the Institute for Noble Maidens. Almost perfect cat love

            Ivan. Mine too. It's all the same. One to one! Moreover, she walks into the tray without filler and calls me to clean up after her. Only does not tolerate injections. The three of us (!) Are wrapped in a quilted jacket. And also very benevolent. I am sure that this is no accident. It's just that cats have their own information field and through it they agreed on how to behave with people!

            My wife also believed that our Sonya was a well-bred kitty and did not walk around tables. I set it as an example for my daughter. I just always wondered why her favorite flower in the kitchen above the table grows poorly. All the time she sinned on the midge, but it was necessary on the cat.
            The main thing is not to get caught !!!
            True, we have one more sin. Derem vinyl wallpaper in the bedroom. Sometimes you wonder how it is necessary to stretch out in order to take the height at your double height !!!

            We don't give a damn about comfort, can fall asleep on the table, under the table, anywhere. The only table in the house. on which he does not sleep is mine with a monitor and other things, he does not enter the kitchen at all. And this is only in winter, in summer at an open window in front of the net.

              We do not allow to sit on the table, but creeps in there demonstratively. For the last New Year's holidays in Pskov, we bought a tray - wooden, with sides, a la "author's work". On weekends I go into the kitchen - in the middle of the table in this very tray. request I wanted to!

      And I like the bandit cat T.S. Eliot.

      "Macavity is a magic cat. We call him
      With an invisible paw because he is a great rogue.
      He baffles Scotland Yard, any patrol, picket.
      Where he was a moment ago - even his spirit is gone!

      Makaviti, Makaviti, the mysterious Makaviti!
      You will not force our laws to comply with it.
      He despised the gravity of the universal law.
      He was never at the scene of the crime!
      Follow on his heels, run across the path
      Search on rooftops, attics - Macavity is gone!

      He is bright red, tall and thin, a gloomy cat bandit.
      His eyes fell into him, but he looked at both of them.
      The wrinkles of thoughts and worries on his forehead lay down,
      The whiskers are unkempt for a long time, and the collar is dusty.
      He curls on the move as a snake among the bushes.
      It seems to you that he fell asleep, and he is ready to jump! ..

      Makaviti, Makaviti, the mysterious Makaviti!
      He is the devil in the form of a cat, you will not correct him ... "(c)

          Hello, Vlad hi thanks to Eliot. If you liked it, then here is the ending:


          "Macavity, Macavity, mysterious Macavity,
          He is a devil in the form of a cat, you cannot correct him.
          On your roof, in the yard he meets the dawn,
          But there is never a villain at a crime scene!

          He looks like a venerable cat from paws to sideburns,
          And Scotland Yard did not print his claws.
          But if at night there is a raid on the ham,
          Glass is broken in the greenhouse, chickens are missing
          The safe was robbed, or the songbird died in the prime of life, -
          There it was not without him ... But he is no longer there!

          And if the contract disappears in the ministry
          Or in the Admiralty the drawing will be stolen by a thief,
          And you will find someone's footprint at the entrance to the office, -
          Searching for him is a vain labor: the villain is not there!

          The secret department will probably tell you:
          "Yes, it's not without Macavity ... But where is he now? .."
          He rests in silence and licks a red tail
          Or the mortality of mice and rats takes into account growth.

          Makaviti, Makaviti, the only Makaviti!
          You do not poison him, you do not strangle him!
          He will present twenty alibis in a row in court,
          As proof that he was not anywhere.

          I know many other cat robbers
          But I'm sure, convinced and ready to swear
          That all the cats that Scotland Yard awaits and catches
          He's running errands, and he is their Bonaparte! "(C)

        We still have to grow up to dogs
        To become on a par with their nobility,
        And they will never crawl
        Before human bestiality.
        *****
        The more I get to know people
        The more dogs are liked.
        They are more honest, they are kinder
        They don't get into fights over trifles.
        They don't lie, they don't drink, they don't betray,
        Do not offend so carelessly
        And they don't spit poison into the soul,
        And they understand everything, of course.
        The more I get to know people
        The more dogs are liked.
        They are like a friend with you everywhere
        They will walk without backing up, like crayfish.
        Legible eyes
        They won't run after the first comer
        And even if "against" - "for",
        And they understand everything, of course.
        The more I get to know people
        The more tenderness for dogs
        Various types and colors,
        Tailless, cropped, shaggy,
        What is paid for good with good
        And they believe in friendship endlessly,
        Do not use a long tongue
        And they understand everything, of course.
        I don't know in the end
        Why in a swearing attack
        We poke each other in the face
        They say, they say, angry like dogs.
        We still grow up to such,
        To become on a par with their nobility,
        And they will never crawl
        Before human bestiality.

                Greetings Anton! The tails are cut off by the Alabai. And the Caucasians are quite tailed.
                According to the breed standard:
                ............................ Chest: Long, broad, with well sprung ribs, deep generally as well as in front; in cross section it has the shape of a wide oval. Ribs well sprung, false ribs long. The forechest is visible.

                Underline and belly: The belly is tucked moderately towards the hindquarters.

                Tail: Set on high, sickle-shaped or curled. Hangs down at rest and reaches the hock; when the dog is alert, the tail may be higher than the back line.

    Bakeneko exists in Japanese folklore. Any cat that has lived for more than thirteen years, either weighing 1 can (3,75 kg), or has a long tail. Bakeneko can create ghostly fireballs, walk on its hind legs; she can eat her master and take on his form.


    Cats, dogs and horses have lived next to humans for thousands of years. While humans, alas, found military use for horses and dogs, it did not work with cats (only occasionally). Cats are a piece of home in the war ...

        ... Cats feel us, but humans also feel cats very well. That is why there are practically no people who are indifferent to them.
        Either sympathy or dislike. With sympathy, everything is clear, but dislike ...
        According to various observations, ninety percent of hard-core alcoholics could not stand cats, most of the women they knew, whose personal life was not well-being, regularly, and to the point and not to the point, categorically declared: “I hate cats!”, Children who were subjected to domestic violence or school transfer their resentment to stray cats or neighbors.
        And there are many such examples. It is safe to say that cats cause negative emotions in a person whose karma is not perfect. Such people should seriously think about how to change their life, make it brighter and happier. And then these little fluffy guys will not cause anything but a smile in them.

    What can the knowledge of ... cats give people?

    Personally, I am firmly convinced that there are brownies. An ordinary gray striped nobleman (or rather a shop-owner - they took from the shop, one might say, a proletarian) treated the village house exactly, no problems. Black - goes into the house extremely reluctantly, all the time trying to climb higher and sits there like a sentry, constantly looking around the room. Either he fights with someone invisible in the corner, then he looks after someone invisible - clearly he sees someone.
    We made an extension to the house. While the construction was going on, I walked around the construction site, climbed in all corners. As soon as the construction was completed, they wanted, according to custom, to bring it there first. He threw a wild hysterics, yelled, bit, scratched, but categorically did not go to the extension.
    In general, it is not for nothing that I attribute special properties to black cats.

          Come on. Baba Yaga also always has a black cat with companions, but our Orthodox Church did not slip into the obscurantism of "Western colleagues", who were noted in the mass destruction of the cat tribe and the human one by indirect signs of pets (for example, the color of a cat).
          Believing and believing are two different things, you also need to be able to explain the inexplicable. Someone does it on a professional level, and some only on a household level.
          From my own experience, I know that priests also remember the devil and not always tripping over a domestic kitten. One in my presence baptized my mother's Barsik and called him "unclean." But we must respect that he didn't kick the tail. I came five years ago to illuminate the apartment of the neighbors, and here cats with rats in their teeth are running around the entrance. We got used to it then. Father, with grateful neighbors, began to go down to the exit, and then through the railing at the level of the face, a cat's mug with a rat in its teeth from the upper flight is looking at you and grinning.

        There was a great article here about how cats defended Leningrad during the blockade!

        There is information (although some doubt its reliability) that in 1943 several carriages of cats were brought to Leningrad to fight rats. In Tyumen, the Siberian Cats Square is dedicated to this event - with a monument. soldier

        And here is what "Arguments and Facts" writes:
        It is known for certain that one cat managed to survive during the blockade. This is the cat Maxim, he lived in the family of Vera Vologdina. During the blockade, she lived with her mother and uncle. Of their pets, they had Maxim and the parrot Zhakonya. In the pre-war time, Jaco sang and talked, but during the blockade, like everyone else, he starved, so he immediately calmed down, and the feathers of the bird crawled out. In order to somehow feed the parrot, the family had to exchange their father's gun for a few sunflower seeds.
        The cat Maxim was also barely alive. He didn't even meow when asking for food. The cat's fur came out in clumps. Uncle almost with fists demanded that the cat went to be eaten, but Vera and her mother protected the animal. When the women left the house, they locked Maxim in the room with a key. Once, during the absence of the owners, the cat was able to climb into the cage to the parrot. In peacetime, there will be trouble: the cat would certainly eat its prey.
        What did Vera see when she returned home? Maxim and Zhakonya slept, huddled tightly to each other in a cage to save themselves from the cold. From then on, my uncle stopped talking about eating a cat. Unfortunately, a few days after this incident, Jaco died of hunger. Maxim survived. Perhaps he became the only Leningrad cat to survive the blockade. After 1943, excursions were taken to the Vologdins' apartment to look at the cat. Maxim turned out to be a long-liver and died only in 1957 at the age of twenty.

            Sergey, good to see you! drinks "Vika" in the Tyumen square refers to the same article in the AIF:
            Then, shortly after the blockade was broken, in April 1943, four carriages of smoky cats were brought to Leningrad from Yaroslavl. It was the smoky cats that were considered the best rat catchers. A queue of many kilometers immediately lined up for the cats. A kitten in the besieged city cost 500 rubles. About the same it could have cost at the North Pole in the pre-war period. For comparison, a kilogram of bread was sold from hands for 50 rubles. Yaroslavl cats saved the city from rats, but they could not solve the problem completely.
            At the end of the war, the second echelon of cats was brought to Leningrad. This time they were recruited in Siberia. Many owners personally brought their cats to the collection point in order to contribute to helping the Leningraders. Five thousand cats came to Leningrad from Omsk, Tyumen and Irkutsk. This time, all the rats were destroyed. Among the modern Petersburg cats, there are no native inhabitants of the city. They all have Siberian roots.

    As one comment says, "surprisingly warm article." Love for cats is over the edge! Let's look at this love from a medical point of view. 
    Toxoplasmosis. An infectious disease that a person gets from a cat (). The causative agent of toxoplasmosis has a very peculiar effect on the psyche of its owner. Mice infected with toxoplasmosis are not afraid of cats and become easy prey for the latter, thereby spreading the infection more strongly. Cats become more "sociable", which also contributes to the spread of infection among humans. Toxoplasmosis is not a fatal disease in humans, but it is little studied and studied. The causative agent tries to subdue and subdues the host organism.
    People affected by the parasite have a special affection for cats to the point that they begin to relate much better to the smell of cat urine and even sometimes "collect" cats, thereby contributing to cross-infection with the parasite. This is what Louis Wayne, a British artist, did. Love for cats was clearly reflected in his work: he painted almost exclusively his own pets. And towards the end of his life he developed schizophrenia. Given that Toxoplasma has the strongest effect on the nervous system, it is likely that it was she who ruined Wayne's mental health. Look at the artist's work. They are on the internet. 
    Ailurophilia.
    This is ailurophilia - a pathological attachment to cats. Ailurophilia is a recognized mental personality disorder. The most typical picture of ailurophilia: a person lives in a two-room apartment with 20 cats. There is total unsanitary conditions, all neighbors suffer from the terrible smell. Animals suffer from overcrowding and hunger - the owner is often unable to feed them to his own detriment. A person either does not react to any complaints and claims, or takes them with hostility, fiercely protecting his animals. 
    Toxoplasmosis and schizophrenia go almost hand in hand. 
    There is a lot of research on this topic, but they are very scattered. 
    "a cat has more instincts than a dog"! Another utopia. The cat tries to subjugate the owner, and the dog wants to be his friend!
    Like an old joke. If the dog became huge, it would protect the owner from everyone, and if the cat became huge, it would first of all gobble up its owner. 
    Have a nice day EVERYONE

    And how is taxoplasmosis related to used lingerie collectors? Shiz, by the way, is very common. One in Japan has such a ceiling collapsed to the neighbors, collected so much ... There are people who drag home all kinds of garbage - "useful". And there is also a medical term ... There are terms for everything.

      Toxoplasmosis has nothing to do with this.

    Well, the cats got here too. Some kind of internet invasion. smile
    It became interesting - where did such universal "love" come from? I speculated a little.
    Modern "cat" culture is purely urban. In the villages, cats are still kept for catching mice. And if the cat "does not catch mice", he is taken somewhere in the woods far away and released (this is at best), and they take another one for themselves. Without any sentimentality. In the village, cats are a tool for fighting rodents and the attitude towards them is appropriate. They feed you - you work. Who does not work shall not eat.
    Everything is completely different in the city. People in the city clearly lack communication with wildlife. Which pet to choose from?
    Dogs and horses are much smarter, but they are larger and more difficult to keep them in city apartments. There are, however, small dogs, quite a competitive option for some, but this is still not for everybody.
    Ferrets, and generally mustelids, are comparable in size, but too much fuss with them. Although by the degree of cuteness, they could well compete with cats. Like raccoons, if they were not so "active" in terms of creating a mess.
    Who is left? Rodents? Reptiles? Insects? Poultry like parrot canaries? Fish? All this also occurs, but it seems to me that there are still more cat-lovers than all the others put together. And judging by the publications on the Internet, then more by an order of magnitude.
    I think that the majority chose cats because:
    - they are readily available. You can get it at any time in any quantity for free.
    - they do not require a lot of work to care for them and mandatory additional costs, such as a cage, an aquarium.
    - they are clean, wash themselves and therefore do not smell on their own.
    - they are not disgusting outwardly, with the exception of a few ugly breeds, bred by people, probably to scare people.
    - they can eat anything, that is, they are undemanding to food.
    In short, no mysticism. And the "miracles" associated with cats, or rather, their number, is simply explained by the fact that people communicate with them more often than with any other animals.

Yes, and taken out, too, a couple of times, probably. Apparently, natural selection worked and all the cats in the village were rat catchers.

      Let me disagree with you. It's like being taught from childhood. The villagers - yes, they eat everything. City ones - something that is not on them, will not even fit. At the stage of smell, they will turn away.
      By the way, this also applies to the toilet. Not every toilet suits (in the city). My cats, taken to the village, despite the presence of heaps of sand in the yard, run to the toilet in the house to the tray with their favorite filler.

        Keywords. There are a lot of stories when cats spoiled by attention, finding themselves in a different situation, changed their habits and ate what they gave. And they did it with great gratitude, which the previous owners had never seen from them. smile
        I had a cat for several years. I got it by accident. I then lived in disorder, I did not spend the night at home for several days, I left him food, a drinking bowl in the form of a bottle overturned over a saucer, put a stack of newspapers next to the tray and forward. He will eat, drink, spoil, cover with a newspaper and normally. Then I took him to my granny in the village, and when she died, I had to take him back to myself. Then I already had a family. After a couple of years, the winter was snowy and he could not escape the pack of dogs through the deep snow. The neighbor said the fight was terrible.

        In short, he died in battle.
        So, at first he ate everything that was given with me, and shit only in the right place. I learned from my grandmother to be picky about food - he had a fresh fish, give him a liver, and only shit on the street. When he returned to me, he again began to eat what they give, and also purred. Well, I got used to the tray again instantly.

          Not necessary. We do not have a farm, but we have a cat, which is only engaged in catching mice, rats and birds. The neighbors have a "farm", chickens, an apiary, but there is no cat, but there is a dog that watches over the yard. In addition, the sale is full of all sorts of things, which, not like rats, wolves, can be poisoned.

            All kinds of poisons, ultrasounds and other achievements of civilization, of course, have a place to be and are used, but cats that "do not catch mice" continue to be driven out of the house, however, such farms, and, accordingly, the number of owners is getting smaller. The closer the village is to the city, the more there are those whom we have always called "summer residents", these - yes, these keep cats, mainly for pleasure, because they buy everything they need in stores as needed, and do not grow them on the site and stored all winter.

        You are partly right. Probably, a significant part of pets get turned on precisely from the loneliness that their owners experience.

          Greetings Mikhail. The utilitarian attitude towards animals is becoming a thing of the past. The owner, who, instead of spaying his cat, drowns her kittens every year, with a calm soul shoots at his dog that has been guarding his house for ten years. This is human bone and limitation.
          My mother more than once or twice picked up the thrown cats. The last Barsik, brought from the forest in a sack. For a warm corner, a substring and a bowl of food, he tore everyone and everything in the whole neighborhood. Trimming all the undergrounds and the adjacent store. Two to three rats or mice per night. For more than four years, until he died of old age, count. Personal cemetery of mice and rats by the porch. Even one toy terrier counts! Including, almost a "walk on the article" for this terrier !!! From mom's pitchfork.
          Today Stesha is engaged in a similar practice.

                  At least from my practice, I know two cases when cats let thieves into apartments, but no back!
                  In the first case, a wild manul, in the second - a Bengal. Bengal is precisely conscious as a result of training. The thief accidentally released the manul. He marked the corridor and the front door and three times repulsed the burglar's attempt to leave. True, he did not let the owner home. They invited a specialist, gave me a piece of meat with a tranquilizer.
                  With cattle, yes, objectively they do not have enough growth to graze, but they teach chickens to guard cats. The temptation is not great for cats. Cats with droppings, yes. A box with kittens is placed next to the aviary and they are hooked. Then the next one is even closer, and then inside. The cat beats off rats and habitual weasels and ermines at the cost of its life.
                  Although I wanted to see not a specialty, but actions that can be attributed to reasonable.

                    Our Dzhulenka (American cocker) very professionally knew how to steal sweets (the whole process, once, quite by accident, was spotted by her daughter). It happened like this: He puts his paw on a chair, freezes, looks around, sniffs, if there is anyone. Jumps on a chair, freezes, etc. .. Puts his paw on the table, freezes, etc. Jumps onto the table, freezes, etc. He walks over to the bowl of sweets, examines it, then takes one and throws it down on the floor. Then another and another ... And the dog did not try to steal all the contents of the candy bowl, she was not greedy, she took just as much as, in her mind, would be imperceptible. Further, she pulled the prey under the sofa and carefully unwrapping the wrapper, ate it. Then she took a few wrappers and stuffed our daughter under the pillow.

    - they are clean, wash themselves and therefore do not smell on their own.
    - they are not disgusting in appearance, except for a few ugly breeds,
    - they save you money by replacing such household appliances as a vacuum cleaner, floor polisher, electric broom, dishwasher and washing machine.
    - they save you time preparing food for you.
    - they perform the functions of a childbearing apparatus, allowing you to continue your race with the least effort.
    - and, finally, they provide you with services of a purely sexual nature, which, in principle, in itself, is very pleasant.

      Misha, come on, with all your scrupulousness, try to break down your attitude towards a woman point by point.

      A woman, whatever one may say, is a man, and a cat is an animal. For me it is a huge distance. In my understanding, in order to compare them, you need to bring women down to the level of animals in your own mind, or raise cats to your own level. For me personally, neither one nor the other is impossible.
      It is simply impossible to break down the "woman-man" relationship as one of the forms of the "man-man" relationship, as these relationships can be diverse, diverse and differ in structure and content in various specific cases. In other words, you can endlessly add new ones to those points, Uncle Kostya, that you wrote. smile
      I already wrote to Vlad: for me cats are just animals, nothing more, and not the smartest. I cannot endow them with any human qualities, all the more, I cannot recognize them as some kind of human rights, even in relation to the most outstanding representatives of this biological species. In the USA, fortunes are already bequeathed to their pets, thank God we haven’t gotten to that and, I hope, we won’t.
      Rabbit, pig, cat, dog - I don't see much difference between them. Unless, the last two people, due to tradition or some other reason, use less often for food. smile
      Any person! - stands at an immeasurably higher stage of development than any animal, including the most advanced primates, not to mention cats.

    Surprisingly, in my childhood and adolescence, cats did not lie on their backs, their paws spread in all directions. Didn't even think about it. And now, judging by the photos, they do it. Why? Have you agreed among themselves that you can do this?
    Cats lay on their backs whenever their feline life allowed them. The position, opening the belly, speaks of the maximum comfort of the cat. This means that nothing bothers him, he feels like a full-fledged owner and completely trusts all the people who are nearby.
    Our Khotabych, after a stormy night spent, dying in passing a neighbor's pigeon, was lying upside down under the stove until evening. Never spent the night in the house, neither in summer nor in winter.

    Again, no cat would have allowed a human to stroke their belly at that time. All four paws would immediately grab onto his hand (and grab!), And then teeth would be added to them. And now - what you want, master, then do with me!

    Vyacheslav Olegovich, letting a belly be stroked is both for cats and dogs, and "at that time" and now - a gesture that means the highest degree of trust. Apparently, earlier, as a child, you simply made cats much less willing to trust you. )))

      The bottom picture (portrait of a cat) is very curious. The fur is masterfully depicted, but with the proportions something is wrong, especially the distance between the eyes, closer to human. Hmmm. A lot of conclusions can be drawn ...
      I have three versions so far:
      1. Features of the art school of that time
      2. The cat did not want his real image and role in the history of Russia to be fixed and therefore influenced the artist and introduced distortions.

            The animals shared my wife and me, each has its own owner. My cat is very smart and self-sufficient, and my cat is an eternal kitten. What captivates Orykas is that they are very attached to people and they constantly need attention. They are real companions and family members!

      ... The horse had a more significant impact on humans ...

      The dog is even bigger! In principle, at the level of pagan beliefs, a cut can be made by the number of divine manifestations, although a more accurate picture will be shown by a civilizational approach to faith.
      The first stage of pagan belief is the deification of elements and events (our Perun and Moksha).
      The second is the endowment of the supreme being with an animal essence (the Egyptians with Bon Apis and nomadic tribes with different beliefs in the Horse God).
      The third is the endowment of a person with divine qualities (and a “social lift” is required, the god “pounded to the left, sent a dove, etc.) these are the Greek and Roman gods.
      In the first stages, "a wolf, a dog, an owl are totem animals." Man recognizes the superiority of the world around him, the pet is an ally in this struggle). Sometimes an object of worship.
      In the third - an instrument, a means of production! In Greek mythology, horses pull chariots rather than speak. By the way, a marker of the appearance of a myth!
      In the real world - urbanization, many cows have only seen in the movies and in pictures! The spirit and life of a peasant, a Cossack, a nomad, a cavalryman - when you lay down and trust your "fighting friend - breadwinner" your belly (I mean in a broad sense), alas, has sunk into the past.
      For you, it’s relevant, for me (we didn’t keep a horse) it’s only partly important (I would put it on a cow-nurse), for my daughter our experience and tools for communicating with a pet is a dark forest! Level - cat, dog.
      The degradation of society in this vein is terrible. Best regards, Vlad!

        I meant that our present (culture, mentality, etc.) is the consequences of the past. In the past, horses helped with the resettlement of the Indo-Europeans, in the development of the economy of each state (from the East to Europe). There would be no resettlement, wars, trade relations with the exchange of experience, goods, inventions, maybe the development of the West "went differently."
        Otherwise, as of 1500 in Europe, the level of development, perhaps, would not have been much higher than the states of the Aztecs or Incas ...
        And what beliefs ... is a feature of Homo sapiens - abstract thinking. Due to the impossibility of explaining physical processes, it was concluded that inexplicable phenomena began to endow (fantasize) with mystical properties (spirits).
        It is the same with animals, the physical properties of which (strength, agility, speed, etc.) exceeded human ones. Therefore, the first gods were more bestial.
        In Greek mythology, the horse says, for this, a talking head (with hands) was attached to it. wink

        May I add?
        Here are statistics on suicides per 100 thousand inhabitants.
        In 2000, Russia accounted for 55,6. -- third place.
        In 2020 - second place. The number of suicides has decreased, "only" 31 per 100 thousand, in the first place Lithuania - 31,9 But we are in second place in the world in the number of suicides!
        We began to commit suicide less, but only because we are catastrophically decreasing in numbers and we have found ways to avoid taking the situation to the extreme: leaving for permanent residence in another country, refusing to have children, refusing to participate in political activities, limiting needs, etc. .d. This leads to the disunity of people, the spread of the ideology, according to which loneliness, social self-isolation is a blessing, not friendship, but only light friendships are blessings, not love, and non-burdening random meetings are blessings ...
        But! .. In every person, to one degree or another, there is a need to love and be loved. Russia is the champion country in the number of domestic cats. This speaks of the total mental loneliness of the Russian person.
        And how to strengthen the country's defense in such a situation? When a spiritual connection is established not in a community of people and not between people, but between a person and a cat. At best, this translates into non-binding online communication for cats.

                I see that the heartache due to the loss of your darling won't let you go, Vyacheslav Olegovich. You want to share it with other people so that they share your pain, and it will become easier for you. But you are an academic person, and therefore you wrote a book. Now society is somewhat different. Zen has a lot of cat apps. In them, people share similar stories, sympathize with them, tell their own. This is how the world we live in has become, and it is unlikely that it will be different in the coming years.

                  You see, Lyudmila Yakovlevna, it was a long time ago in 2005. And then, of course, it was very sorry for her, 19,5 years - not a joke. And of course, I wanted to somehow "dissolve" it. But in the end we got an excellent novel "Three from Ensk", which is recognized by all who read it. So I don't understand a little of those who ... don't follow my advice to read it. At least one book. Another thing is that they don't like the topic, which can be understood from reading the preface and advertising material, but they don't even do that. Books on paper are expensive now. And electronic ones are worth a penny. But it comes out and so I can not, and so I do not want. What do they do? They watch TV and scribble on VO "Russia is lost." I don't understand this ...

    I have a kit. Alabai 80cm and under 90kg and the kitty is beautiful. The dog is smarter. The cat is more cunning. A dog lives by a man; a cat by itself.
    I took the cat for practical reasons, the moles tortured and plowed the lawn, the currants and raspberries were inflated by the roots, trouble. in an hour 6m can dig. Hack from despair, does not take anything. Everything that is described at least somewhere-tried-the dog's tail. except for traps, it is expensive, it is to dig in a gluyuinu..the same as digging in 3L cans. I decided to take the cat, considered everything that is. I took the kitten from someone and that's it. Without looking or thinking. The cat turned out to be a dead bandit. Catches mice. There are no moles, I all the same drove out with crotofet (see YouTube) -effectively homemade smoke exhaust from available non-poisonous substances - sand sugar and potassium nitrate and that's it. But the cat is working. They found a way of communicating with a dog. She is not afraid of a dog, if the dog lies dozing, then this infection can simply pass through it without hesitation. The dog is raising her - the territory of her patrimony - no one will fly, hedgehogs, snakes, frogs - all this is blocked and until I throw them out with a bucket over the fence the dog will cut service. A cat cannot move in the presence of a dog - he immediately takes it back, the cat takes a bullet into the shelter, walks when the dog is busy and does not pay attention. But if one of us came out, jealousy and the cat is chasing. Otherwise, this impudent girl (sterilized) has grown into a huge cat, she can steal food from a bowl from a soaki - try it !! besides me, few people take the risk, I am free, but I am a dad. God is for him. The dog actually does not bite her - he plays, as a carcass can play for a long time for 80 kg and the speed of a rocket. Once he stepped on the edge - did not have time to brake, he crushed her paw, stretched out. But nothing recovered. Hides on our shoulders or head. And that's what was unusual for me. The cat went somewhere, a searchlight with a motion sensor gives it out, she goes to the village at night, well, she’s not there in the morning, we’re having fun, we’re making noise. In five minutes we see a cat staggering nearby. All the same, she is with us. social. Pressing to the family when everyone is together. I do not know how it is difficult to insert a photo here, it would show.

        Not the fact that your cat does not pay attention to the toy terrier. Several years ago I had a trial, because the cat finished a toy terrier, I confused the Crimean one. They dragged me around the courts for two months. I also carried his parasite around the courts in a string bag. So the hostess of the medal, portraits and certificates of the innocently murdered Tay Terrier, and I whose cat was picked up in the trash heap and brought from the forest in a sack, were judged.

    Not every cat will allow you to stroke its belly - a stray cat will not.

    My home brit does not allow itself to be turned over and is not given to hands - it requires freedom.
    And the cat allows you to turn it over and hold it in its arms upside down and stroke it, but only me - no one from my family anymore trusts to do this - will scratch it.

    Each cat has its own character.

    In 2008, I walked into the entrance, returning from the store, while a tiny kitten was waiting for an elevator, a tiny kitten appeared, grabbed onto jeans and climbed on them, so I came home with bags in my hands and a kitten on my pants. To establish whose it did not work, well, since it was so small, and so savvy, then it was not an option to expel, well, it is not clear whose it is, there was no wild cat-mother either. It was not possible to leave in mind the presence of already 2 cats, too, so the kitten was attached somewhere. Unfortunately, what became of him later was unknown, maybe he still lives, only because at the right moment he realized to climb a man's jeans, otherwise he would have simply died of hunger.

        I don't know, I think a more sensitive ear. I noticed when a wife or daughter returned home. Three minutes before the doorbell rings or the key is turned in the lock. First, one ear is understood, then the second, stands on its paws, yawns, stretches and slowly plops to the front door. I haven't missed anyone yet. If someone comes a stranger, he sleeps like a felt boot.

    According to knowledgeable people, cats do not sleep on their backs because of a good life: the food structure has changed, and they, like people, have problems with the gallbladder. And if the stagnation of bile is eliminated, then the cats again begin to sleep on their stomachs.

    "- I always wanted to know," Ipslor said bitterly,

    - what is there in this world that is worth living for?

    Death considered his question and finally answered:

    - CATS. CATS ARE GOOD. "

    *****************************************

    - ALL CATS ARE MORTAL. YOUR HOUR IS COMING.
    YOU REMEMBER, I SAVED YOU SOMETHING:
    FROM A TANK WITH REDY RYE WATER
    I HAS BEEN KOMOCHEK ALIVE.

    NOW IT'S TIME TO DIE.
    And, FOR GOD'S Sake, STOP BURNING!

    - Your knees are firm as a board.
    Let me purr at them for now.

    *******************************

    - TRUST ME, MY SORROW IS GREAT.
    OF ALL CREATURES I ONLY Pity the cats.
    BUT YOU CAN SEE MY SEAL.
    And, FOR GOD'S Sake, STOP BURNING!

    - You are not getting warmer.
    Let me purr to you harder!

    ********************************

    - LISTEN, BEAST! OTHERS ARE WAITING FOR ME.
    I BEG. DO NOT INTERRUPT MY MORNING WORK.
    I AM DEATH. I MUST STOP LIFE.
    And, FOR GOD'S Sake, STOP BURNING!

    - Do not rush to complete your sorrowful work.
    I will purr. Tell me: "Kis-kis-kis"!

    **************************************

    No one died anywhere that night.
    Death gently scratched the cat behind the ear.
    And this soft wool motor
    Humming in his dwelling from now on:

    Who understands and regrets Death,
    Can't die irrevocably.

    ******************************

    - And, FOR GOD'S Sake, STOP purring!
    - Purring, Master, is better than being silent ...
