Welcome to Meowsings of an Opinionated Pussycat!
The last edition appeared in late March, and the events of that month caused me to take an extended vacation.
In late May I thought I was ready to return to the fray...
Not quite. I only did 3 more posts since then. ;-D
Well, I'm truly back, now...Honest Kitty! ;-D
I even contributed 2 of my last 3 to the latest Carnival of the Cats that will come out, later today, over at Victor Tabbycat's, to prove it! ;-D
As part of my return I'm going to do posts about what I've been reading since March, as well as return to the plugging of other Cat related weekly round-ups we all know and love.
So let's get this show on the road!
1. Do any of your humans have lessons or parables they say they have learned from having you in their lives?
Keri, of the blog The Posts of My House, has some, expects more, and wonders if other humans have similar stories to tell.
2. Cats and Disrags.
I think the best defense a cat has when dealing with humans and their ideas is the instant dishrag - to go completely limp.
Read: Cat on a Leash.
3. Did you know there are Cats in Iceland? And that they write songs about them up there?
Everyone knows the first, of course, but how many know the second? ;-D
Carl-Mikael A. Teglund, of the blog Pro libertate nostra, writes about a polular old song about the Yule Cat that will eat those who do not get a new pair of clothes for Yule. ;-D

4. The Human Medical Profession in Great Britain is not as evolved as that in the United States.
They still rely on Witch Doctors there...
As we all know Witch Doctors cast Spells for all sorts of reasons, from the personal and private to the political, and public.
And the Witch Doctors all have Black Cats that are often called upon to cast Spells, too.
As proof of this I present one prominent Witch Doctor's archive of Black Cat Spells. ;-D
5. Firefighters are a Cats best friend!
FIREFIGHTERS and a wildlife rescuer were forced to use jackhammers and boltcutters to save Cobby the kitten who was stuck in a wall cavity for more than seven hours.
The three-month-old's owners, Emily Guy, 25, and her mother, Wendy, found their cat had become trapped between the wall of their Middle Park home and their neighbour's house after going exploring.

6. Little Girls are aces in our book, too!
KITTEN that had a brush with death has been happily returned to its owner after a young girl helped save it.
Lucy Roddins raised the alarm when she found four-month-old Sox slowly sinking in the mud of the River Arun while walking in the Gardens of Remembrance in Horsham on February 21.

7. We Cats know why, and how, we Purr, we just don't feel the need to explain ourselves, or the process.
Humans, being the inquisitive creatures that they are, have all sorts of interesting theories on both subjects. ;-D
8. Some Humans are not Cat People, and many of these people have very legitimate reasons for it. On occasion they feel the need to explain this aversion, often in humorous ways.
Crystal Sue Lindel, of The Only Certainty is Bad Grammar, is a case in point:
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and the reason it doesn't is not completely the fault of the writer, and the way something is written, but in the overprotectiveness of Cat Loving Humans whose overreaction shows they may need to lighten up a bit. ;-D
With that I'm calling it a day! ;-D
***UPDATE - 915PM***
Come one, Come all! Step right up and check out the Big Top!
Carnival of the Cats #224 is up and purring over at Victor Tabbycat's place! ;-D
