Cats are funny creatures. When they’re not busy raising their noses at humans, scratching furniture, and snarling at their shadows, they exhibit enough sense of humor that would elicit a little chuckle or at special occasions, even a guffaw. I’ve noticed, however, that these feline friends of ours are a hundred times funnier when they’re drawn in ink, printed either on crisp paper or electronically. That’s just me. I don’t know about you. Maybe cats are funnier than I give them credit for. I mean, comic artists do spend a good deal of their lives observing cats and making them stars of those tiny little boxes on a daily or weekly basis. That does account for much, doesn’t it? And then there’s also this facet of cats that borders on philosophical. You know how you sometimes search for answers to life’s questions and then there’s just your cat, handing it to you almost matter-of-factly. There was one time I was so tired and sleepy and terribly hungry, I spent a good 15 minutes trying to figure out what to do. Well, lo and behold, in front of me was a cat falling asleep in the middle of her lunch. Kitty showed me how simple life actually is even if we tend to complicate, especially at times we’re under pressure. Real life advice. From a cat. True story. Humans, pay more attention to cats.
