The Ancients


In ancient times


Cats were worshiped


As gods ~


They have not


Forgotten this.

      I know! I try to adapt the same attitude and people just ignore me. Go figure.

  2. Did you write this or did our cat right this? It almost sounds like a threatening promise… Does he still have the sword?

      Our cat is under the impression that it is still ancient times. He has demanded that an idol of himself be erected in the town square- I don’t know how he communicated this to me, but I know that this is what he wants.

      And he still has the sword. He has informed me that it needs polishing.

      • An idol? Wow. And what would he like said idol to be made out of? Hopefully something which doesn’t need polishing.

          It’s the pigeons that concern me. You know how much respect they have for public art.

        • I fear that, too. What if we make the monument in the form of a pigeon? (Of course with our cat’s head and the sword)

          Let’s make it out of popcorn and stale hamburger buns- stuff that pigeons eat. Therefore, we will have fulfilled the cat’s bidding even as the birds devour the results, with no messy pigeon residue.

  3. Ah Moppet your frolic in the feline fanfare is fantasmagorious!

    Meow that 3 times fast!

    And here we see why they ignore you. If you’re going to look at people that way when you write they aren’t going to be amenable to interaction.

      You know, cats can demand to be fed at 4 in the morning, lay across your book when seeking attention, or sit in the sink for no reason whatsoever, and people thinks it’s cute.

      I do the same thing, and people call me a little horror. So not fair.

      • Have you considered you`re associating with the wrong people?

        Then again as we know from one of your previous renditions, you are the girl with the curl and the curl and the curl………

        You know I am the helpful sort. The trunk is empty and I was going to feed my sword anyway so if there is a particular one or seven who were unfair and dared call you a horror!

          What? You mean the ones who are afraid of purple, who trick me into playing golf, and who throw me into the batting cage- without a bat- the wrong people?!

          Never occurred to me.

        • Well you have something wonderfully purple you can freeze them on the spot with.

          That should alleviate being tricked in to a flogging adventure and thrown in to the batting cage.

          Ah uhm, you know I’d never say or even think such a thing of the Majik Moppet! Have you considered that the people that do such to you things to you are of the mind that you may be some kind of winged creature that isn’t simian?

          What winged creature would that be?

          I could hire a Purple Body Guard. I hear that Barney is looking for work…

          Why do I get the feeling that there are currently about a hundred people out there caught in a tangle of brown duct tape?

          Try explaining THAT to the cops!

          Out of curiosity, just why were you looking up bullwhips in the first place? hm?

        • I saw it here on wordpress. It was much more about the use of duct tape than the whip. I seem to recall commenting that dust tape was good for everything but what it was designed for.

          My story and being duct tape, I’m really sticking to it! You believe me right?

          I do recall your comment about duct tape- it’s around here somewhere, I’m sure (the comment, not the duct tape) Thus, for propriety’s sake, I shall say… nothing. Absolutely nothing.

        • Okay I have my sensibility or at least laughter back under a modicum of decorum. Now that winged thing question.

          Maybe the inference was to a winged hamster or something of the sort.

          I hear the Rosanna, The Leprechaun and the Flamingo could use a 4th for bridge so if you got someone in mind. 😉

          Cthulhu has wings. So do B-52’s and Bumble Bees.

          Dodo’s once had wings too.

          None of these are my friends. Perhaps I’m not the person to ask.
