I know it is not a cat blog, but we love cats. And because today, August 8, 2023, is international cat day, here are eight cringy things cats do – but written like Shakespeare would.
Overly Affectionate Grooming
Upon yonder stage, the feline stars doth perform, with fur as their canvas and tongues as their brush. A spectacle unfolds as they engage in a dance of grooming the divine. Oft excessive, this cleansing endeavour doth seem, as saliva-drenched paws anoint their coats. Messy it may appear, yet ’tis a testament to their regal bearing and pride in their attire.
Awkward Jumping or Falling
Amidst the grand theatre of life, the feline acrobats doth tread with grace, yet even they sometimes falter in their splendid flights. A jump amiss, a stumble on the stage, these moments of graceless artistry reveal their vulnerability, their human-like fallibility, endearing them further to the enraptured audience.
Chasing Their Own Tail
Behold the curious masquerade of the tail-chaser, a dance of merry bewilderment. Like Pucks in the wood, they prance and spin, pursuing that elusive tail, their own reflection in the mirror of nature. Do they jest with themselves, or dost the chase bring mirth to their hearts? ‘Tis a merry scene, a folly that tickles the soul.
Failed Jump Attempts
With nimble limbs and a heart of courage, the feline leaps, aiming for heights sublime. Yet, in moments unforeseen, a miscalculation or a misjudgment doth lead to an ill-fated landing. A spectacle of noble intent, though marked by a fall, revealing their tenacity to rise again and face life’s stages anew.
Getting Stuck in Small Spaces
In their quest for discovery, these inquisitive players explore realms hidden and small. They venture where others dare not tread, often finding themselves trapped in a confined world. A paradoxical sight, both pitiable and admirable, as they stretch and twist to liberate themselves from spaces that confound.
Knocking Things Over
Amidst their playful escapades, the feline tricksters knock objects from their lofty perches. A mischievous ballet of paws and whimsy, these antics remind us that their frolicsome spirits know no bounds. Though chaos may ensue, the art of the fall is woven into their narrative, one that teases and enchants.
Lo, the tempestuous gust of fervour sweeps through the chamber as cats succumb to the wild ecstasy of the “zoomies.” A mad dash, a whirlwind of motion, they traverse the boards with abandon, leaping as if to reach for the stars. Their fervour, infectious, doth leave us marvelling at their ceaseless enthusiasm.
Unusual Sleeping Positions
As the curtain descends on the day’s performance, the feline stars retire to their dreamy realm. Upon cushions and crooks, they recline in poses curious and convoluted. The embodiment of flexibility, their slumbering forms take on shapes defying logic, reminding us of their capacity to find comfort in the most unconventional of poses.
So, in this playfully dramatic story of cat antics and appeal, we come across the cats’ cringe-worthy yet adorable actions imprinted in the records of remembrance. Their whimsical performance on the stage of life encourages us to accept the idiosyncrasies that set them apart as captivating companions. As the last scene comes to an end, let’s give them a round of applause for their peculiarities and commemorate the charming story they create – a masterpiece that showcases the artistic and affectionate nature of felines.
