In the cat heaven
The cat who frightens the mice away is as good as the cat who eats them'
'A cat bitten once by a snake dreads even rope'
'A cat may go to a monastery, but she still remains a cat'
'Ye shall not possess any beast, my dear sisters, except only a cat.'
The Ancren Riewle (Nun's Rule)
Peter: `Hey, Paul, here you are, at last, have you been longing for me?´
Paul: ‘I don't want to hear about it, I really would have stayed with my master more longer.’
Peter: ‘ Sure, I do know it, it was only a joke. When I left in those days, I didn't want it too, but it was high time for me.’
Paul: ‘But I had just accustomed myself in my new home with my old master when suddenly I felt sicker than ever before. Say, do you actually know how I got here and how did you come here my friend ?’
Peter: ‘No, I don't know. I only got asleep sometime and I awoke here again among many other cats. But you and our master were not with me. Even so, I could always see what you do.’
Paul: ‘Are you able to see what our master is doing now?’
Paul: ‘It's a pity, that she couldn't come with me. I find it really interesting here, actually. There is only missing cat grass.’
Peter: ‘Thats right and also no meatballs. I had to do without them on earth already.’
Paul: ‘Do you remember how we lay in our bed-box telling us some stories?’
Peter: ‘Yes and how we quarreld, because each of us wanted to bei with mum first.’
Paul: ‘And because you wanted to steal my ped food.’
Peter: ‘Here I don't need any ped food and feel good inspite of it.’
Paul: `Can I lay in the sun here at least?´
Peter: ‘I didn't try it yet, but you can test it.’
Paul: ‘Well, I'm not so sure if it will please me here, eventhough you are at the same place an I am not alone here at least.’
Peter: ‘Don't worry it will, I'll show you the peephole in time, where you can have a look at earth and our mum.’
Paul: ‘Oh, yes!!!´
Thank you, Peter and Paul, I will always love you.
