Cats


Before i entered office this morning, a cat circled my feet. Then it stopped and looked back at me with shiny eyes!

Cats are unpredictable. They can look at you with such disdain that it makes all your self-confidence evaporate. And then suddenly, they’ll look at you with one brief, understanding glance that seems to say

“I recognize, I understand. We know each other”

And then the moment is gone.

Just like some people.

    So true! I almost feel previliged when a cat deigns to rub herself against my feet. And that look of indifference or disdain is smthing only a cat can achieve

    You domesticate dogs. Cats domesticate you.

    Try hearing the purring when they sleep next to you. Thats when you start getting domesticated.

    @ Raccoon: Cats are special…the four-legged as well as the two-legged varieties. 😉

    @ Pragni: Actually I’ve never owned a cat. But what am I saying? No one OWNS a cat.

    @ Anonymous: Yes, will do that.

    @ Stranger: 🙂

    Shes always a woman

    She can kill with a smile
    She can wound with her eyes
    She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
    And she only reveals what she wants you to see
    She hides like a child
    But shes always a woman to me

    She can lead you to love
    She can take you or leave you
    She can ask for the truth
    But shell never believe you
    And shell take what you give her, as long as its free
    She steals like a thief
    But shes always a woman to me

    Oh-she takes care of herself
    She can wait if she wants
    Shes ahead of her time
    Oh-and she never gives out
    And she never gives in
    She just changes her mind

    And shell promise you more
    Than the garden of eden
    Then shell carelessly cut you
    And laugh while youre bleedin
    But shell bring out the best
    And the worst you can be
    Blame it all on yourself
    Cause shes always a woman to me

    She is frequently kind
    And shes suddenly cruel
    She can do as she pleases
    Shes nobodys fool
    But she cant be convicted
    Shes earned her degree
    And the most she will do
    Is throw shadows at you
    But shes always a woman to me

    Now, I wonder why I still love Billy Joel.

    lol, yeah…but the 2-legged cats still need to do a lot of catching up with their 4-legged compatriots.
