Cat Proverbs

There are many ways of skinning a cat.

The cat who frightens the mice away is as good as the cat who eats them'
German proverb

'A cat bitten once by a snake dreads even rope'
Arab Proverb

'A cat may go to a monastery, but she still remains a cat'
Ethiopian proverb

So, now I'm here, too. Where? In Cat heaven. It is actually not so boring here , because it's amazing who you meet here! For example Paul from 'Peter and Paul', who I got to know for a short time. And the good thing is, it happened very quickly to me. For my family it was quick, too, though I was even very aged and had to take my medicine every day.
One February-evening I suddenly didn't feel well at all. I couldn't walk anymore, because my legs were paralyzed. I got very scared about that and tried to move with all my might. My master and my female master looked worried at me. While my female master tried to calm me my master started to telephone very exited. Some time later I was put into the pet-box, which I hate so very much, and my master took me to the doctor in the cold winter air. He also looked worried at me.

'Goodness gracious me', I thought, 'what a waste of power?' Some time later I got very tired and fell asleep, and when I woke up again, I was here.
My greatest sorrow is considering Kritzi, my sister. She has to survive without me now. She is not getting any younger, and we lived together for 16 years after all. My master is also looking very sad, as I can see from here. He already knew me, when I was a baby. I really had a good life with him all those years. But they all can be glad, that I didn't suffer for many days and that I became so old. One day we will meet again here of course, but until then I will have a careful look at all the other creatures here.
