It was a jealous male cat if that makes a difference.

I do like bitches...if they heel.

I would not put an animal in an urban environment...especially not a dog.
I believe in utility. I like my dog to serve a purpose.
That's why I would only consider getting one if I owned a farm.

Raising neurotic, fucked-up animals just to please myself, and comfort my loneliness, is not something I can consider doing.
Pets usually sooth our inner isolation...even if one is surrounded by people.
Actually being surrounded by people can accentuate this sense of loneliness.

And here we are...on-line.
No?

Notice that in either case the desire to have a pet, a domesticated, safe animal, to take care of and be noticed by, indicates a social alienation - a disconnection from humanity, as it has become.

I have always felt this way too. My sister keeps a big, fat, neurotic dog and it has always depressed me because I can see her unhealthy lifestyle and alienation from family reflected in him.

About three years ago a friend of mine here in Korea got ahold of some kind of guide to American culture, for Koreans. On the subject of pets, it tried to explain to the reader why so many American families own dogs and treat it as it it were a full-fledged family member. The explanation was something to the effect of: Americans have replaced their extended family members with animals. It fills the void left by absent grandparents. To get the feeling of a whole family, Americans adopt dogs and treat them like humans.

My friend thought this was just another reason to smugly scoff at Korean insensitivity misunderstandings of Westerners. But for me it was a refreshing whiff of truth. Sometimes only a stranger can tell you what you really are.

This association with cats and sexuality goes farther. It has to do with harvest and ale:

"For thousands of years, beer making was the exclusive domain of women, until the age of Industrial Revolution (in the mid-19th century). Before this, women maintained power and status in male dominated societies through their skills as brewsters. In all ancient cultures, beer was believed to be a gift from a goddess - never a male god. Still surviving in the world's most remote places - Mongolia to the Amazon, from Africa to isolated Scandinavian villages - places where the long shadow of Budweiser does not fall.only women brew.
Zeroing in on the occupations of condemned women, I was stunned to discover that some 60 percent of those who had occupations referred to themselves as brewster, alewife, or midwife. Remember that our notion of "witch" came along simultaneously with 1. The rise and spread of the early Church; 2. The birth of commercial male-run breweries; and 3. The creation of guilds for physicians/surgeons.

In both Old Europe and in the New World, a woman with a surplus of beer found ready cash by selling ale to any thirsty passersby. To promote this source of income, women would place a broom in the road in front of their house. As villages turned into cities, women with a reputation for good beer permanently moved their brooms from the road to hang perpendicular over the door to their cottage. In time, houses became so crowded together, some enterprising brewster hung her broom - cantilevered - over the door - thus was born the first of all trade signs. The association of brooms with brewery is still seen from Africa to Peru, a lingering sign that beer making was a trade unique to women. Why the broom? By the 10th century, the ubiquitous broom had become the quintessential symbol of a woman's household.
Consider next the witch's hat, that tall-steepled black headgear every child associates with "witch". Our witch/midwife has her best days selling ales at fairs and festivals. These events - not entirely unlike our own county fairs and carnivals - drew the biggest, longest, free-spending thirsty audiences to the brewsters. Extending even to the weekly rural market days, people crowded into these events from all over the surrounding area. Amidst throngs of customers and vendors - alewives found the best way to sell was to be seen. Looking down an endless line of booths, a brewster was easy to find towering over everyone with her two to three foot high "witch" hat. By the 16th century the brewster's hat, along with her broomstick, became the hallmarks of her trade.

Every witch has a cat. It's an expected prerequisite to witch fashion. Why the cat? Anyone who has had stores of grain in the house will know. Rats! Rural women whose livelihood depended on the reputation of their ale protected their costly ingredients. Unlike today, cats were expected to feed themselves, guarding grain stores in the process. To the early Church, cats became the fabled "familiars": agents of the Devil, nourished on its owner's blood through a witch's teat - a hidden nipple bestowed by the Devil himself. Some historians (myself included) ascribe many European outbreaks of plague and other pandemics to the Church having killed off tens of thousands of cats. Seeing Puss as a diabolical agent of Satan, it's a miracle any of them survived.

"Midwives and nurses mediated the mysteries of birth, procreation, illness and death. They touched the untouchable, handled excrement and vomit as well as milk, swaddled the dead as well as the newborn. They brewed medicines from plants and roots, and presided over neighborhood gatherings of women."
- Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
A Midwife's Tale (1990). ..." [From Ale Street News]

You archive of gems.

My comrade has like 15 cats and I asked her in which ways she relates to them, whereby she characterized as follows:

'The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself.'
This and also a cat only comes to you when she wants to.
Cats are graceful. Sometimes gracious, sometimes incredulous, and very cautious.

Cats as a metaphor for feminine.
