Hear me roar …


I admit I’m not a cat lover but I find my son’s cat, Baelfire (known as Bae), fascinating.  (This picture was taken by my son).  Bae has interesting colouring.  His face is split in dark and white colours of black, white and brown.  I think it is magnificent!

There’s something about cats!  My son had given me a book a while back to loan to parents I worked with called ‘All Cats have Asperger’s’.  I’m not sure if the title of the book is accurate.  People with Asperger’s have a desire to connect with others, they often struggle to work out how this is done.  I feel a title like “All Cats are Royalty” would be more appropriate.

Cats can be aloof and can interact on their terms.  Anyone with a cat will tell you, they rule the house.  They come and go as they please.  They act entitled.  My friend had a cat once who went next door to live permanently because the neighbour gave the cat better quality cat food (or so my friend thought!).  Whatever the reason, the cat acted like everyone should be grateful for its absence or presence.  It would visit both houses, great big meow (read roar) and then step out, tail held high.  Yes, royalty, king of the jungle.

As my son and his wife have three cats, I admit to enjoying their company a little bit more and probably because my son wants to share their antics with me.  I see them differently and find myself smiling at them. Or maybe I’m becoming a softie.

Until next time

As always

  1. I never liked cats. Then, I was away for work, and a cat appeared in our hedge on a stormy night, my husband and then 4 year old took it in against my wishes. It turned me around. I think getting to know the cat and his unique personalities changed me to a cat appreciator! Bae is beautiful! He reminds me of our second cat, she had similar markings.

  2. She’s a chimera! Very distinguished, indeed. I love cats (even though my newest one is quite trying) and find their aloofness part of their allure. While a dog will happily slobber all over you, a cat will take her time deciding whether or not you deserve her attention, but whatever you do, DO NOT be late with her dinner!

    1. I’m starting to see their personalities, Eliza and quite fascinated by their behaviour. My daughter’s Berner will beg for attention, slap your hand to keep stroking her! The cats, nah! They act like they are gracing the moment by their presence alone! lol
