Today is the start of the school year here in Israel and all the two-legged kittens are going back to school.
We kitties are still enjoying our summer vacation, until September 1st, and then it's back to our studies. I (Trixie) will be teaching my (not so little) Brofur Caspurr (he's bigger than Me already!) the Basic Principles of Transcendental Meditation. As you know, the Most Impawtant subject of study for a kitty is the Art (some call it a Science) of Meditating upon his or her Own Name. Not his or her regular, everyday name, by which he or she is known to his/her Humans, and not even the name by which s/he is known to other cats. No. I am speaking of the cat's secret "ineffable. effable, effanineffable, deep and inscrutable singular Name", which is known only to the Cat. If your Humans have read "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" by a Human called Mr. T.S. Eliot, or seen the mewsical "Cats" by Mr. Andrew Lloyd Webber, they will know what We are talking about.
Of course, I can only teach Caspurr the Basic Principles and give him a few pointers. The rest, he will have to learn by himself - as will I. Meditation is a Lifetime Study and cannot really be taught. It has to be experienced to be understood. But, once mastered, its Benefits are incalculable. Not the least among them is that a better way to totally baffle Human observers has yet to be devised (mol).
Meanwhile, We are off to enjoy what's left of the Summer...
