Thoughts on the FUTURE

Hello all you cats who have visited me. I will be sure to pay return visits as soon as I am able. It is too hot to go out today.
Besides I have a lot to think about.


This morning, as Lynettea was running back and forth with the bucket watering all the pot plants she kept muttering about "the anticipated mass movement of people that will be displaced by climate change".
I gathered she had been reading something in the sheets of newspaper that I perch on when I sit on the dining table.


When she moved on to mutter about "the austerities that will be imposed by drought" she made me nervous. I hope this doesn't mean there will be no more soft centred crunchy food treats and a crowd of displaced cats around my food bowl.

These thoughts so alarmed me that I ran in and crouched on top of her jackets in the wardrobe until Lynettea pulled me out and forced me to go for a walk.

She said "You must face the WORLD Diamond! It is no use hiding in a corner".

My thought: humans aren't making the best job of running the world anyway. Does she expect us cats to fix it all now they have made such a mess.
I hope we don't run into Kemiri while we are out. She is very cute, but probably dangerous.

MIAOUW!

I agree, humans haven't done a very good job. You should check out Cheysuli's blog, she is running for president of the US! She has my vote!

Boy, I'd climb a BIG tree to get away from that kitty! Tara

Hi Diamond! You are a very handsome kitty. Great color! I saw you over at Tara's so I wanted to stop and say hi. I used to lead an "interesting" live myself. I'm much happier now in my forever home! Stop and visit when it cools off. It is only 4 degrees out here!!!

Hi Diamond! I'm Pablo, a brown stripecat from Hobart, Tasmania. Yes, another Aussiecat! I was interested in your thoughts on climate change. I don't think it will be good for us cats. Check out my post on climate change from my November blog archives. See you in the blogosphere, Pabs.

Hi Fellow Kitties, we are wondering when the storm will die down and we will get back to our usual somnolent state. Diamond would be a good name for a Prime Minister. Did you know that Sir Isaac Newton had a cat called Diamond? Lynettea heard it on a radio quiz show. He invented the cat flap, which is apparently his chief claim to fame. http://www.pawsonline.info/facts/cat_flap.htm
