How would you describe a cat in one word? I think inscrutable might be a purr-fect choice. In case you don’t have your dictionary handy, inscrutable is a fancy word that means “not readily investigated, interpreted, or understood.”
Cats are definitely inscrutable. We want to sit on your lap, but we want our space. We’re perfectly capable of taking care of ourselves, but clever enough to get you to do it for us. We are so strong-willed we always get our way. And if you know what’s good for you, you’d better not cross us because we also have laser-eye powers.
And super-camouflage powers.
Thanks a lot to Russell Deasley who keeps giving away our secret powers on his blog, The Top Ten of Anything and Everything. Please, please, whatever you do, don’t encourage this man by clicking on this link to see all ten of his creepy laser-eyed cat pictures. And I beg you not to click on this link to see his ten mystifying camouflaged-cat pictures.
Remember what I said earlier about not crossing a cat? Don’t make me use my laser-eye powers on YOU. We cats want to stay inscrutable!
