The human says it has been practising its 3 point perspective. I hope, reader, you do not think this is our house. I would never allow such practices as you know. I dont know how the human came to be on the ceiling of this building, but however it was, it would have been better employed taking steps to have this kind of thing stopped than sitting about on the ceiling doing pictures.
By the way I saw the human cheating and using tracing paper. It knows nothing of 3 point perspective as anyone who has watched a human try to catch a mouse will know.

The human has been somewhat elusive of late and gives its excuse for this as "christmas" whatever that is. Whatever it is, it seems to entail frequent visits to "out". It often announces that it will be home all day at some point in the future but this rarely occurs and by the way I do not consider going to the vet together to be quality time especially as I was feeling quite well and not in need of medical attention.
This is quite annoying a it means I am left to rely on humans 2, 3 and 4 who, whilst friendly enough (except for no 2 who is dangerous and cannot be trusted), are not as quick on the uptake as no 1 human who is quite domesticated at this point, staring through the wall at it from another room being usually sufficient for any requirements to be attended to.
There are some indications however that "christmas" may soon be over so I am hopeful of more attention and a decent fur brush in the near future.

For some weeks now the human has been struggling with a painting of black birds under a bridge at night. This is an excellent example of the human tendency to make life difficult for themselves. Cats of course would never do this. It is also inconvenient for me as the human is unavailable for most of the day and although there is bubble wrap available in its studio this would mean having to listen to its terrible music which it plays in there. I have also noticed that fur brushing has been decidedly lacklustre of late.
Cat art is, of course quite different from human art consisting as it does mainly of performance and happenings. In this respect of course we are, unlike humans, playing to our strengths. Appreciation of cat art among humans is, as you may know, generally low and they often regard it as somewhat controversial.
I have noticed that the human was taking some photographs of its painting today which is encouraging as this is often a sign that it has given up trying to paint whatever it is. Usually there is a lull then before it starts trying to paint something else. hopefully I will be able to get a decent fur brush before this happens.

"There are many today who use similar arguments, wishing that the heat of the civil commotions among us could be diverted into some war against our neighbours, fearing that those aberrant humours which now dominate the body politic would, if not decanted elsewhere, continue to maintain our troubles at fever pitch, finally entailing our complete collapse. And indeed a foreign war is a distemper much less harsh than a civil war: but I do not believe God would look favourably on so wicked an enterprise as our attacking and quarrelling with a neighbour simply for our own convenience"
Michel de Montaigne 1588
The human says this means there is nothing new under the sun. Personally I don't see why you would not want to fight with your neighbour as they are clearly going to be the most annoying to you, a case in point being the big tabby from next door who has given me nothing but trouble since I moved in here. Since cats to not usually live in communities (unless compelled to due to having fell on hard times) civil war is not technically possible for us anyway.

Earlier in the week I was prevented from returning to the house for 6 o'clock snacks by a visit from the doorstep humans (who aren't allowed inside the house). On this occasion they were also not allowed to have the outside light on and were unable to see to recite passages from their bible.
Never the less they persevered for some time until they discovered that the human did not consider humans the most important thing on earth and that further more this as a premise for a subjective and species centric system of moral philosophy was a danger to the planet. The doorstep humans were nonplussed by this and could hardly believe their ears and they went away.
After they had gone the human said they would need to stop using the inteligent design argument as they were flogging a dead horse. I am glad to say that I didn't see this horse as I understand them to be highly dangerous creatures. Flogging one on the doorstep is just the sort of ill thought out and negligent activity to which humans are prone.

Cats as you may know do not have religion as a human would understand it since, not being a social species, there is no requirement in our culture for us to be nice to each other. However we do engage in certain spiritual activities which are traditional to us such as staring and the veneration of woollen garments.
