All about cats

What do cats do at night

Sleep in a bed. No, really: they sleep in a bed. That’s what they do. It’s a habit that’s evolved over millions of years. We’ve been selecting for it. But then we invented the bed in the form of a soft warm blanket. It was a big step up from sleeping on a stone floor. So now we have the cat bed. But do cats sleep in the bed? No, they don’t. They sleep on the bed. I have NEVER seen a cat sleep on a bed. Cats sleep on the bed.

I’ve been thinking about this because I’ve been doing a lot of reading, and listening. I’ve given up on the radio and television in the last few weeks, because I’m being inundated with political messages that never seem to be really challenged. They’re all basically the same, and they all seem to be promoting the same idea. So I’ve been listening to more and more podcasts to pick up my ideas and news.

I got a book on the recommendation of a friend, and it was called “The Dog Who Saw a Ghost.” It was written by the author of “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat,” and it’s about a cat. I was expecting to read about a dog, because that’s what I’m used to. But it’s about a cat, and it’s very different. I’d never heard of the author, and I have no idea why he was recommended to me. I’ll have to do some research on his other books.

Anyway, the cat is called Wellington, and he’s a Siamese, which is a breed of cat. (You can learn about them here.) Wellington lives with his owner, a woman called Jane, in a small apartment in London. She’s a writer, and she’s also a cat person. She loves cats and talks about them all the time. She’s a very intelligent woman, and she’s not at all what I’d expect of someone who loves cats. She’s a little quirky and eccentric, but she’s also very warm and kind, and she’s interested in the fact that they’re more intelligent than we think they are. She’s very interested in the fact that they can be very manipulative and very clever, and that they have powerful communication skills. There’s a lot of “You can’t do that” that goes on, but she’s not at all averse to listening to them. She’s very kind to Wellington, and she loves him very much.
