The Visible Soul

“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”

― Jean CocteauGypsy in window

That seemed like such a nice quote – until I thought about it.

Now, having thought about it, I’m concerned that the soul of our house, while cuddly on the outside, has a dark, blood thirsty, thieving, conniving side. And, to be perfectly honest, I’m totally fine that the cats have those attributes but if that is part of my home’s, soul I’d really rather it not be visible.

So forget Cocteau, let’s go with Wesley Bates, “There’s no need for a piece of sculpture in a home that has a cat.”

Thank goodness for that, the cats would just knock it to the floor anyway…

    My parent’s house would’ve had a very dribbly soul….

    Our cat looked a lot like the one in your picture, except for the nose.
