Quality time with the Princess

Warning: today is National Cat Day in Poland*, so you’ll be subject to even more felid pictures than usual. Here’s one that Malgorzata took after I fell asleep reading Frans de Waal’s The Bonobo and the Atheist (book review soon).

Cyrus the D*g has stayed away, so I had a good hour with the Furry Princess of Poland on my chest.  She even licked my neck for a long time. It is, of course, a great privilege to be licked by a cat.

*That’s a lie, of course; but I have nothing today.

    Just wanted to let you know that the Hili dialogs and photos are such fun! I start each day with them.

    I for one am very much looking forward to the book review! I liked the book a lot, but it could have done without a certain chapter …

      I look forward to the review as well, however I did not like the book.

    I’d like to know how and why a cats weight increases 5x when sleeping on your chest or knees.

      The soul returns to the body temporarily. During wakefulness, in cats, it floats a few inches above the shoulder blades (right behind the halo).

    A cat, a book, a couch, a nap. That’s heaven to me.

    Thank you, same years ago I just wanted to show a kid how to make her FB page interesting. I was talking about continuity, and presentation of continuity was planned for one week. It should be a warnig, I was trapped in my own trap.

    Cats always like me. I must taste like tuna or something.

    I do not believe in supernatural phenomena so I must think the evil of cats is a natural occurrence. My reasoning is based on direct observation.
    Did not the ancient Egyptians worship cats and build religious monuments to cats?
