Many moons ago Ugga Oggawood was chased by a wild cat. He survived, but instead of passing down to his son, respect for all cats, he passed down his fear of them and his son passed down this fear to his son. But fear turned to hatred in the son of his son and the hatred passed down to his son and his son’s son too. So that down through the generations of Oggawoods, Ugga’s legacy of fear had turned to hatred.
Many more moons after Ugga had his narrow escape from the wild cat, his great great grandson Woody was too busy to make friends, or to marry, because he had discovered computers and spent his days writing angry bitter comments and insulting cat lovers on every cat web site he could find.
He wrote of various ways of killing cats, his favourite being by the shooting of them. He also wrote about the ignorance of those who love cats and he tried to convince everyone that cats are evil and needed to be exterminated, that they had no right to be on this Earth.
But the people reading his comments knew it was all in his mind, that he lived in a fantasy world of what he would like to do with his hatred for all cats. He was poisoned by his own venom inside him, repeating himself over and over in the hopes that people would start
believing him. What a sad and lonely man wasting his life that way.
OK, fun over, I’ve so much enjoyed making those posters and writing fiction, but now let’s be serious…
Does fear of cats lead to the hatred of them?
I think maybe it does, because those people who hate cats know in their hearts that cats are far superior to human beings, that they are intelligent and independent and they will never lower themselves to try to please, because they are far too dignified to do that.
They also have a purpose in life if they are allowed to fulfil it, they keep rodents under control, our world would be over run with rats and mice were it not for cats.
What is the purpose of humans? Animals managed very nicely before we came along! I think inadequate people hate and fear cats. This is different to those people who don’t like cats, we can’t blame them for their indifference to the creatures we love, as long as they never hurt them.
Some people don’t like dogs, some don’t like children and so on, but what a much better world this would be if everyone would live and let live and respect each other without any hatred of what others may love.
COMMENT: The story is not what it looks like in the title. But it is…
A cat is innocently playing with the family dog. Everything is perfect except the cat…
