A Round Mound of Meow

Cats seem to come in three basic shapes: long and narrow, square, and round.img_0250

 

My first encounter with a square cat was Lilu M. Lilu is a mixed-breed shorthair. She reminds me of a fur-covered cinderblock – rectangular and firm. She has a relatively short tail that is quite muscular. You know when she’s tapped you with her tail, because it leaves a mark.

The Siamese cats seem to all be long and narrow. Siamese, Burmese, and their various descendants all share the “lean and hungry” look.

Athena . . . is not square.

Her Royal Lowness, Mistress of all she sheds upon, gazes down from her preferred afternoon throne.

Yes? Who dares approach us without proper obsiquiousness?

From behind, Athena resembles a bowling pin. From above? Nothing so much as a round mound of meow.

Whatever it is, it is NOT funny. What part of Not Funny do you fail to understand?

  1. The kitten is very adaptable. When curled in a laundry basket, he is round. When stretched out on the couch, he is long and thin. When pouncing on my feet at half past midnight, he’s a bloody nuisance… wait, that’s not a shape.

Opine away!
