Strange Cat-Person Item No. One

One of my favorite blog-writers Eleanor has just commented, on yesterday’s “P-r-r-t-y” post, that she started out feeling like she might have been a “bit strange” for talking to her cats.

See her excellent loveable blog, especially the yoga post:

I replied that I myself was leaning into my strangeness.

So right now I feel the need to do a little more of that.  Even though it’s Martin Luther King Day.  I can’t take too much of this milk-of-human-kindness stuff.  I feel like it’s poisoning my internal rejecting object.

So here’s a Strange Cat-Person Item.  I’ll call this “No. One” because I have a hunch more like this may follow.

This is the Claw-and-Whisker Museum I have set up in my house.

Strange enough for you?

“Ooo.  Strange.  Where’s the exit?”


About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

    Oh wow, thank you so much for the shout out. Your Claw-and-Whisker Museum is…ummmm…quite original. I have to say I always get way too excited when I find a dropped whisker. Maybe I should start collecting them and make a tiny whisker ‘flower arrangement’. Strange cat people unite!

    Hello my favorite person, 🙂 Ive come to admire the aparent ease you have both in leaving comments and receiving them. How you can turn things around with a positive spin and even incorporate them into new posts. I must learn that skill!
    Claw and wisker museum. (pause for contemplation) Grand! Anyhoo.. you can expect to see the likeness of mr. Bugs on Feb 1 Post title Introverted cat extroverted dog. See ya then.

    FAVORITE Sara, WOO HOO!!! What an amazing smackeroo from you to wake up to!

    And Mr. Celebrity Cat Bugs making his debut on your splendid page Feb. 1.

    I CANNOT WAIT. So I may be “seeing” you every day before then.

    Is this what a helicopter-parent or stage-mother is like? Never dreamed I’d turn into either of those things. . . .
