Cats are certainly the great winners of the Covid-19 pandemic. In times of collective anxiety and personal distress, increasingly more people have discovered the pleasures of owning a cat.
Cats fool us by presenting them as innocents, sensible, and vulnerable fluffy creatures. Their tiny, pinky rose noses pick up the finest fragrances. They rotate their ears, like some professional antenna, to pick up the softest sounds. You can see curiosity dilating in their sharp eyes.
Everybody think of cats as being lovely and pretty. In reality, cats are little monsters who get to own our entire life. They are the true masters of the household. They decide when it is time to play, to groom, to eat, and even to disturb their servant-owners.
They are little destroyers of everything around. According to an ancient myth, cats have multiple lives. In Arabic culture – seven; Romanians are more generous and give them two extra lives. Each one of these seven lives describes a particular personality.
The first personality consists of a needy, humbled, and fluffy playmate. The second life gives them an invisible crown of imperial superiority. The third life reveals their evil souls as baby-face killers. The fourth personality feature makes them supremely arrogant and proud.
Fifth, they can be flattering and manipulative creatures. Sixth, they have a “mommy” personality, in that they can feel your pain and know how to take care of your misery. And finally, they are Mr. and Mrs. Clean, who are obsessed with self-hygiene and make us, humans, look dirty by comparison.
