the cat who writes

Write, take naps, and take another nap

Cats are not foolish

Reading the Bible in the morning with Mrs. Hodges

When I woke up today Mrs. Hodges and I sat by the fireplace at 4:50:53 a.m. and read Chapter 27 in the book of Proverbs in the Bible. The book of Proverbs talks a lot about foolish people and how to be wise.

Cats are not foolish. We know when to hold our tongue and not complain. It is silly to be annoyed. We are able to discipline ourself and we are very prudent.

A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.
Proverbs 12-16

When my staff forget to feed me, I do not get annoyed. They are not insulting me, they are just humans and are forgetful.

I always send Nepeta, one of the kittens, upstairs to scratch on Mrs. Hodges door at 4:00 in the morning, and she always comes down and feeds us.

Today in Proverbs Chapter 27, I read about birds that leave their nest, and men that stray from their home.

Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home.
Proverbs 27:8

If I found a bird that strayed from its nest I would eat it.

If I met the man who stayed from his home, I would tell him to go home. Who knows there might just be a giant cat that will eat him.

Are you easily annoyed?  Please tell me in the comments. I would love to sit in your lap and talk.

(If you are easily annoyed, maybe you need to think like a cat, relax and take a nap.)

    I love to read what cats write. A whole new perspective. I started writing a post form a kitty view, but didn’t finish. I am truly inspired. And what annoys me, Pooh, people who answer “No, thank you,” when you asked how they are doing. Let’s connect, people. Life is short. : )

    Me-ow Pooh,

    I stole Greg’s laptop to take this pic for you:

    I also eat birdz. Bye

    • Good Morning my dear friend,
      I would love to meet you one day. I think we would have a lot of fun playing together and eating birds.

      Your typist, Greg Narayan, forgot to tell me your name.
      Please, what is your name? I hope your name is more dignified than Pooh. When I introduce myself to women they often laugh. Sometimes I say my name is William.
      All the best,
      Love Pooh

        Hi Pooh,
        My name is Sultan and I is a former street cat from Istanbul. I would love to meet you and share some of my salmon. Pooh sounds like a wise name to me.

        I am 6 months old. My selfies are improving.

  • Tink Caron

    Dear Mr. Pooh, I don’t think cats are foolish. I think they are very smart. But cats don’t like me. So in that way, they are not so smart. Why don’t cats like me? love Tink.

    • Amindele

      Cats are not foolish. But even then, it is pretty foolish not to like Tink, who is, by all means, a very nice dog.

    Dear Pooh,
    I agree. There is no reason to get annoyed. Yet sometimes i do.
    I get annoyed at neighbors that walk by my house and do not come play with me.
    I get annoyed with chirping birds and squirrels that tease me and don’t play.
    When I am annoyed I bark and then mom and dad get annoyed.
    So I am going to take your advice and take a nap.
    Mom will have to finish this because i am asleep.
