Strange Cat-Person Item No. Three: Stinkbug Phil

I’m seriously worried about where this strange-cat-person thing might lead.  Kim gave me Dena Harris’s book WHO MOVED MY MOUSE? for the holidays.  I tried to read it only in broad daylight (while Bugs was spending the 23.75 hours of the day asleep).  I had a hunch that if he were to catch sight of it, I’d never hear the end of it.  I could just imagine how’d he take to — not — the perfectly sensible and caring advice that Dena generously extends to those of us, humans and cats, who are sorely afflicted with modern-day angst and damaged self-esteem.  And who amongst us can honestly say we’re not.

But Bugs got his paws on it anyway.  Now I hear him guffawing in the other room.  I fear it’s too late.  He’s turned into one of those armored-type guys who mocks anybody who needs caring self-help and who’s honest enough to admit it.

I dropped in on Dena’s blog.  Now I’m even more worried.  Dena writes of sentimental feelings arising out of an incident involving a stinkbug, her fishtank, and a friend who names anything and everything “Phil.”

I’m calling the CDC.  This thing is contagious.


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.
