Isn’t that a lovely word?
Although our intellectual depths are not guessed by most non-felines, and the Egyptian aage of due reverence has long passed, we are still highly respected in some Hindu temples. There is even one holy cat, recognized as such in Myamar
There is a movement to honor us in small ways such as this: http://marykay.typepad.com/gallimaufry/2004/07/friday_cat_blog_1.html
But, all of that is far away and if there is one thing my kind excels at, it is living in the Zen of the moment and this moment has sun and an entracing dance of crows riding the updraughs of wind just outside my perch and I must get back to that.
