The Cat and The ConservatoryPosted: April 9, 2014
Her name is Jazz, and she came to live with us some years ago when she decided that she did not want to share the home where she was then living with other cats. She is the fifth cat that has owned us … and is by far the most temperamental. (Some unkind souls might just say that she was mental … but we could not agree with that!).
You will note that I wrote that she ‘ is the fifth cat that has owned us’. Those of you who are cat people will already know what I mean, but for those of you who are not and never have been, here are a few quotes that might explain my comment:
- ‘Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as Gods. Cats have never forgotten this.‘ – Anonymous
- ‘Dogs believe they are human. Cats believe they are God.‘ – Anonymous
- ‘In a cat’s eye, all things belong to cats.‘ – English proverb
- ‘As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.‘ – Ellen Perry Berkeley
As proof that the conservatory is now finished, here are some photographs of it in all its completed glory:
