infinite patience and compassion

It's funny how, lying in bed and being stared at by a cat, sometimes the cat's eyes look like the eyes in one of those old paintings of Jesus Christ, beholding you with what appears like infinite patience and compassion.

You aren't the first weirdo to experience a quasi-spiritual moment while dangling a catnip mouse in front of Muffin. Go to some crazy lady's website about Jesus, and you'll find a tribute to her fifty cats placed alongside her praise of the King of Kings. The connection between a cat's unblinking glare and religious ecstasy continues to escape me, but if your tabby is Jesus, then give me that old time religion.

It was probably just wondering when you were going to feed it.

And yes, I am well aware that a domesticated predator is not an avatar of boundless mercy and compassion. I was just commenting on the odd impression I got (whilst abed with the flu).

And the cat's gone; he's staying somewhere else now.
