Kateri, felis saeva et fera
The line that separates Kateri the Sophisticated Cat, and Kateri
the Savage Beast is very thin! This became clear to me this past
Thursday night while I was sitting at the computer doing some
important work. As often happens, she jumped up onto the desk
and plopped her carcass in front of the monitor. Sometimes I
tolerate this for a while and just adapt myself to the situation.
But this time I was not so patient. I took a book in order to
push her rump off the desk. She lashed out at me! Baring her
fangs and hissing, she scratched the finger on my left hand,
drawing blood. I almost said a naughty word! Oh, how sharper
than a serpents tooth it is to have an ungrateful cat!
