Mama Cat

The frightened kittens’ whiskers flicked and then their ears laid back against their heads as the leaves on the trees overhead held more still than one thought possible in the angered wind and the shadow was heard to pass and nearer it came with its untold talons poised to grasp what no-one knew was waiting and it only passed and left undone the things that made its doing so terrible because it was alone and the mama cat moved against the shadow’s passing and fought the enigmatic thing that wrestled between them still and she was calm and the babies’ ears stood upright again for they were as they should be and safe when she found them again and they were not alone – and their whiskers flicked again and they were not afraid –

    I like this one 🙂 Krista and I just watched “In the Womb” on cats, so this is extra cute. I should finally have some time this week to read up and catch up on the last week and a half worth of blogs. I’m looking forward to it 🙂

  5. You see to me, this reminded me of a new born lion cub in the African wild, being stalked by a very large bird of prey, but firmly guarded by a protective mother.

      And that would be appropriate or fitting. I was actually taking it further as an analogy and having the mama cat represent a human mother watchng-out for her kids…protecting them against all the dangers and unknown out there…those shadowy and enigmatic things…sometimes even things that don’t appear to have substance or form…like ideas, philosophies, attitudes…those kinds of things….
