I am in at home, after witnessing a cat fight, going on in full swing between one of my last summer’s kittens'( now cat) and one of this year’s kittens. The two were on top of the bougainvillea plant that grows outside my house and making all the shrieking noises cats make when they get into disagreements. I was surprised to take a little one take on a full grown adult male and the full grown cat seemed to be getting the worst of the argument.
But this fight got me thinking.
In my office, there are women and more women. And we have some who like to move around offices, spreading news and evil tidings about others’. They are silent and like to keep their voices quiet. While on the phone, which they constantly are, they hush their voices up but if one needs them for work, one knows they are on the phone because they are not available to do the work at that time. They also like to barge into your office and even when they see you are busy, like to take a chair, make space for themselves and spread their vile. Aren’t these people also like cats- but silent cats ? My thinking is that since they don’t want others to know what they are talking about, they want to hush their voices up.
But this tendency is not restricted to women. In my previous workplace- the vile was spread by men and very successfully at that. It used to make me think how men are as good as passing around evil as women.
I think people or animals who have too much time on their hands, like to indulge in idle hour pastimes like cat fights, or cat arguments or even cat gossip. So there isn’t much difference between cats and humans, you see.
