Anyone interested in Biskit? Is the Pope a Catholic?

When he first came to us, Daisy and I would face him down as you know. As time has gone on, we haven’t felt the need to do so. I still believe in the odd hiss though. Now since Jimmy died, our keepers haven’t seen us play. That’s four months. For the first few years when Daisy and I met, play was what we did most.

Two things have developed. First, ‘Big Lad’ [mark 2 of course] now chases Daisy. And as he is twice her weight, she backs off. My male keeper always puts it down to play, which it seems to be, but my female keeper isn’t convinced. And yes, Daisy and I have begun again to have the odd tussle.

I hope you can see where this is going.

Biskit isn’t bothered by the rain, so the ‘Biskit hour’ remains [see the ‘Vet Within’].

Short of the three of us dancing around or jumping in the pond outside, it is inevitable we shall get closer…

Which, as always, leads me on to this month’s topic, that of awakening.

“Wasn’t that Jimmy’s obsession Hol?” asked Daisy before I decided on it for this month. And it was. Now if I have to remind old and new readers alike of the dangers of sleep walking into a micro-chipped hell, Jimmy will be reconsidering his decision not to reincarnate on to the Earth plane one more time.

My keepers were watching a wonderful [we liked it too] programme called ‘Sacred Rivers.’ The last one in the series written and presented by Simon Reeve was about the Yangtze. His female translator was delightful, and she declared this century in China to be the ‘WAKING OF THE SOUL.’ How wonderful is that? Now, for you left brain geeks, would you like some statistics?

The world’s population is 7.28 billion. The population of China is 1.36 billion [19%]. The population of India is 1.27 billion [17.5%].

Does China get a good press? Are the Chinese an undifferentiated mass of uniform wearing, flag waving zombies? Well, if you knew that there are 250 million [and rising] peace loving Buddhists, 100 million Christians [and rising] and 50 million vegetarians [and rising] in China would you change your mind? And 80% of Indians are Hindus, another religion not known for its addiction to war.

So, leaving aside the dark chapters of all religions, don’t these figures make your heart sing?

The USA and the UK, home of the architects of global tyranny, are just over 5% of the world’s population.

And did you know that Brazil [2.83% of the world’s population] declared a national day of mourning for the state funeral of one of that country’s [and the world’s] greatest mediums Chico Xavier in 2002?

We, cats and humans, are naturally focussed on where we were born and where we live. If Daisy and I [and yes Biskit] lived in Brazil or China we might be coming at this column from a completely different angle.

Jimmy and ourselves are not fans of organised religion. Many, if not all, are about control and power. However, they may well be a bridge [or a buffer] between total awakening and the barbarism that masquerades as the ‘war on terror.’

We felines continue to embody love, compassion, joy and all the other positive emotions you so admire, and are the forces behind planetary awakening.

I would like to think our experience of the loss of Jimmy and the introduction of Biskit is, in some very small way significant as a reflection of bigger changes in the world.

My female keeper’s ‘guide’, Diana has said:

“Nothing is out there. It is all within you. You create it all from within.”

[‘In the Stillness, Everything Happens’, pp 51]

Before we close this uplifting piece, let me tell you that all the rantings of eugenicists like Cattenborough are completer b******s. The ancient Greeks thought the world over-populated at a time when it was 300 million. Today archaeologist Michael Tellinger has estimated if each grouping of four people were allocated ¼ of an acre, the whole of the world’s people could be ‘fitted’ into southern Africa. My keeper has just checked the maths, it is true.

And we cats? Jimmy’s ‘territory’ was about 10 acres!

No more nonsense about over population please.

Love and light from Holly & Daisy.

 

 

 

 

The Very Best Toy for Cats

"Of all the [cat] toys available, none is better designed than the owner himself. A large multipurpose plaything, its parts can be made to move in almost any direction. It comes completely assembled, and it makes a noise when you jump on it."
