The Mantras of Kitties
If kitty is near a door and he invokes
the Kitty Mantra, the door opens. When near his kitty dish, this chant
brings milk or food.
Those who are unfamiliar with the kitty culture may think tomcats fight over the favors of the female kitty. Not true.
Close observation proves that the real fights break out because all male cats (when intoxicated by love) think they can sing.
None of them can.
All male cats, sensibly, can't stand the singing of other cats. Also, they can never agree on a song.
If a tomcat lives in your house, now
you know why he returns from an ill-fated songfest reciting the Mantra
of a 100-Dollar Vet Bill.
