From Typewriters to Broadband. Our Cats and Us — 11 Comments

  1. lol oh my curly perm, how old fashioned it looks now.
    Bryan was my little shadow, I still miss him even after 14 years. We are so lucky to have shared/share our lives with so many beautiful cats, each and every one with us in our hearts always.

    • In a way it is quite nice to republish because it brings back a memory and we can take a fresh look at things. Although I had intended to republish it quietly and to restore it to the way it was and not give the impression it was written yesterday.

      • It was nice to see it again, a lot of wonderful old articles get lost in the mists of time, there are so many on PoC, I like rereading old ones anyone has written.

        • That is true Ruth. I’d like a software program which brings the old articles forward and stirs up the site. I am looking for one. There are many good articles that are lost somewhat. Although, the big pages are viewed a lot, and found by the search engines such as “wild cat species” and “hair loss in cats” including also some of the essays.

  2. Very well written article… uuppps! not written actually types for internet 😉

    Yes you are right. I have still my type writer which is in order and I look at this classic type writer which is German and is about 50 years old. This is my dad’s. I still have COMMODORE 64 and all its essentials. I have more and more antique items for which I care very well because these are my past friends.

    I used to be alone in my life, specially a regular library freak. 😉
    Never had many friends but loved research. Still now the cats are my main subject of study and I always keep myself updated towards the issues related to cats.

    It is my experience that I have 96% western friends on facebook, and personally I have in my real life many a many western friends. I avoid east. I know it but am unable to type here. It does not mean that I hate EAST. Nup! but there is a great gap between my inner culture (orthodox ISLAMIC culture) and the modern (Self defined/ selfish inhumane ISLAM). Western love humanity and welfare (towards human beings and animals) and it recall me the welfare aspects of my inner spirit which is directly connected with all prophets.

    Waaooo! cats are wonderful and if internet can help us to share the different new or old ideas about cat welfare, The internet is the BEST opportunity of the present time. The basic sense is to avoid being selfish or rude and become stand with hand to hand about the main issue of welfare of CATS and KITTENS.

    Humanity and welfare both must be as blind as COURT OF LAW (Justice). And why not? No color, no religion, no creed may stop us to do the humanity works or welfare to human beings and cats. This is what I often think when I am totally sad and alone.

    God bless you Barbara and your family, ameen. And thousand thanks for the article <3

    • Ahsan you are Western in your thinking. When I communicate with you it is like communicating with a friend here (almost). But you have a very spiritual approach to life through the Islamic faith. I think you have achieved a lot where you are. You have done very well.

      • HAHAHAHA Ahhhaaaaa nup My friend! I think that Westerns are orthodox moslims in their thinking and and it is vise versa now to both 😉

        well thank you, jazaka Allah (means, May Allah bless you and reward you, ameen).

        Actually, I always think positive, even about cat killers. I pray for them that one day they will get the merciful heart and spirit towards the innocents. I have never shown my hate to them. Hate can never rectify anyone, but LOVE can conquer the HEARTS.

        This is my approach which I have received through out the prophets, saints of Islam, Christianity and Judah. Three brothers standing as they are a Bermuda Triangle while the light is the same but the acts are far away different in our time.

        If we make boundaries between Cat lovers and Cat haters. We are both in WAR. And I now that what Winston Churchill said about war.

        “The first causality of war is innocence.”

        And in this case, its the cats and kittens. So, be patient and keep a control over the tolerate level is the best to avoid such circumstances that these innocent creatures suffer much and more.

        This is my straight opinion. God guide us all, ameen. Thank you Michael <3

  3. Babz, I had intended to sneak your article back onto the website without notifying people (the most recent posts list) but I failed to get that right. So it is as if it is a new article 😉 Sorry.
