Chloe: A Wise Cat

Chloe in contemplation. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
A wise cat acquires wisdom through spending long periods motionlessly staring into space considering issues of universal importance - such as, "Where shall I sleep next?". ~ Unknown
Everyone knows that cats spend 85 - 90% of their time sleeping. Cats have small brains about the size of a walnut; they need as much wisdom as they can get. All of our cats spend time sitting looking off into space; at some tiny insect visible only to them perhaps, or maybe this saying is true, these moments in time are used for higher complex thought. Sometimes after one of these long pauses, Chloe will look knowingly into my eyes as if she has discovered a new philosophic concept. Then she walks out of the room slowly, to be found a few minutes later curled up on the bed asleep. Hey! Maybe "unknown" is on the right track.

Be sure to stop by Friday's Ark this week to see pictures of all the cats and other animals. And don't forget Carnival of the Cats, hosted this Sunday by Ginasrantings. (end of post)
