The New Aedan

Being the cerebral feline that I am, I have been busy studying the world's philosophies. I am currently very interested in the Eastern Indian ways. If you listen to the new song on my page, "Sri Radhika Stava - Rupa Goswami", you will see what I find so intriguing about these philosophies.

"Sri Radhika Stava - Rupa Goswami" sonically conveys the sweetness of love between Indian deities Radha and Krishna, expressing the yearnings of the soul to celebrate their love. Indian saints and seers know the divine as the supremely beautiful feminine and masculine divinities of Radha and Krishna. Between them is love in its fullest embodiment. Forever beckoning souls through their divine love call, they extend their infinite hearts to all. The entwined female and male voices draw the listener into a trance of sweetness and longing for the divine.

I know this is a radical departure from the "tail banging" Aedan you all know, and hopefully love. But I am nearly 5 now and as a mature adult I have to explore my boundaries and embrace new ideas. Shouldn't we all?

The song is beautiful. I hope you enjoy.

 

Four Years Ago Today...

... I adopted my dad! I remember that cold February morning as if it were yesterday. A funny looking human (let's face it they're ALL funny looking) came to the shelter where I was staying. All my siblings had been adopted. It was just mom and me left. I didn't want to leave the old gal but I saw my opportunity to finally get a forever home. Let's face it, I was 8 weeks old, not getting any younger, and soon my kitten charms would be fading.

The shelter lady picked me up and gave me to the man and he said my new name was "Aedan". OK, I thought, I could live with that. Much better than Fluffy or Foo Foo (no offense to the Fluffys and Foo Foos of the world).

"Let's go home, bub," I meowed to the man.

"OK but from now on I'm dad. Got it?" he said.

I laughed, "Hahahaha!!! Oh, wait. You're serious about that. OK. Whatever it takes..." I replied.

And the rest is history. It's been a good life - no complaints here. I love dad and he loves me and we make a great team.

 

Wondering Where The Lions Are

January 19th 2008 9:19 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Written By: Bruce Cockburn
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett


Sun's up, uh huh, looks okay
The world survives into another day
And I'm thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

I had another dream about lions at the door
They weren't half as frightening as they were before
But I'm thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

Walls windows trees, waves coming through
You be in me and I'll be in you
Together in eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

Up among the firs where it smells so sweet
Or down in the valley where the river used to be
I got my mind on eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...


Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake
Thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take
Pointing a finger at eternity
I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

Young men marching, helmets shining in the sun,
Polished as precise like the brain behind the gun
(Should be!) they got me thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...


Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay
One of these days we're going to sail away,
going to sail into eternity
some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me


And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...

 

To Be Thankful

November 16th 2007 7:06 am

It seems these days that we are all too busy to stop a moment and reflect on the things for which we should be thankful. I know with all the running around, playing with catnip mice, watching the birds and general cat business, I have really lost touch with what I should be in tune. So I am going to sit here at my laptop and ponder for the next several minutes. To be thankful...

I am really thankful for all my toys. I have a huge box full of them. People would think we had 10 cats in the house instead of one just judging by the toys! My most favorite toy used to be my purple monkey but he got worn from too much play. His ears and nose fell off. Dad said he went to the Bridge (is dad fibbing or are there toys at the Bridge?). So I now have a yellow monkey which is exactly like my purple monkey - er except he's yellow. I carry him around like a baby and sleep snuggled to him. I love my monkey. All my toys are great, but I am most thankful for yellow monkey.

I am thankful for my home. It keeps me warm and safe from bad people and those big metal d*gs that go by all the time (dad calls them "cars"). I have several little hiding places where I go to have my private time - dad does not know where my favorite ones are... There are large windows that I can look out of to watch the birds and squirrels and people as they go about their daily duties. And of course there are all the great napping spots: On dad's recliner, in my perch, behind the couch, on dad's bed... the list goes on and on.

I am thankful for my food. I only get the best. I am a very picky eater so dad has been trained on what foods to buy. I bet I would make a good food critic if I cared to try. My food is always fresh and plentiful and available when I want it. There is also always a fresh supply of cold water to wash down my meals. And on rare occasions, if I'm really good, dad lets me taste his human food. I really like that!

I am thankful for being orange. That sentence speaks for itself.

I am thankful for all my friends at Catster. They have given me advice and comfort throughout the time I have been coming to Catster. We have laughed, cried, joked, grieved, argued, debated, pondered and partied. My life is richer for having them.

But I am most thankful for my dad. Without him NONE of the other things I have mentioned here would have been possible. Dad adopted me when I was just a small puff of fur. No one wanted me. All my other brothers and sisters had been adopted. I was alone and afraid. Dad rescued me and gave me a life that I thought was only possible in dreams. He gives me love and attention and spoils me rotten. We are playmates and best friends. He gives me guidance. He shows patience. He provides care when I am sick. He never has let me down. I can't imagine life without dad. I love him and want to be with him forever.

 

Wow I've been tagged 5 times!!!

Hello kitties. If you were tagged, here is what you have to do. Make a diary entry like this and say something about me - like I am the most awesome super cat in the universe :)

THEN you need to tag 10 kitties and write something you like/admire about them and email them letting them know they've been tagged. Did I forget anything? No... I believe that's all. Have fun!

I didn't realize how popular I was. So I am going to recognize the "taggers" and only designate 5 "tagees" (50 would be a bit excessive).

In no particular order:

Pooh Bear: My tail bangin' orange Maine Coon buddy. One cool dude.

Alice: A very lovely orangie girl. She loves dressing up and her page looks awesome.

Hector: A brave and skilled mouser, Hector is a very handsome orangie. I am jealous that he gets to go outside.

Oliver Winston Parsons (OWP): A dear friend who is wise and witty. I think it's so crazy that he likes the v***uum!

Ashley: Another lovely orange girl. I love the striking contrast between her dark orange fur and her bright white fur! She is very smart and sweet.


Now my tags:

Champion Smudge Storm: Cute little guy who is more orange by the day. His wisdom belies his youth and he has an awesome family!

Summer: Another girl orangie and newest member of BOCU. She is way cool because she likes Meerkat Manor!

Grover: One of my oldest and dearest friends on Catster. I don't see him much anymore. How could you not love this guy?

Perry: My European twin brother. Killer looks dude! We are so similar it's scary. I admire his bird talking ability.

Kami: WOW! What a handsome Maine Coon! He's from "Down Under".

 

To get caught up...

I got a boogie mat the other day. It's really cool. I like to claw at it and sniff it. Then I rub my head on it and lick it. Then I like to crawl under it and make a mini cave out of it. I highly recommend one to anycat that is without.

Since it's the height of the shedding season, dad has been trying to brush me. But I will have none of it! Now he says that I'm getting mats. He keeps trying to pull them off of me but when he tries he gets some Aedan fangs for his troubles. My fur dad! Back off!!! Now he's threatening to get out something called "electric clippers" and cut the mats out. Hahaha you would think he'd know by now how hopless that would be!

I know I should let dad brush me but I don't like to be touched when I don't WANT to be touched. Respect my space, ya know? These mats are getting a little itchy, though. Hmmmm...

Dad is getting ready to go see Jimmy Buffett on Sunday. That means I'll be stuck alone for most of the day. GRRRR - that dad is so selfish! He says he has to leave early because they are going to "tailgate" before the show. How? The guy has no tail! Bring me, dad, I have a nice fluffy one. We can share! But no... I think it's best I let him go by himself. How awful to be the only cat surrounded by thousands of humans... I shudder at the thought!!!

 

Mouse Hunt Update

Just to get current... I have now vanquished 4 mice! Well 3... the fourth one dad took away from me and released back outside before I could finish it off. I think I'm going to start an exterminator company. I am very good at catching spiders and bugs as well as mice. Hmmm - what could the name of the company be? The ExterminAEDor? Aedan the Pest Assassin? I will have to think about this one.

Here are the rules:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own blog about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

OK - Hmmm... now about me!

1) I like to open and empty dad's dresser drawers

2) I LOVE rice pudding!

3) I can say "Love you"

4) I snore very loudly when I sleep

5) When I'm mad at dad I sit near him (preferably his face) and smack him hard with my tail

6) I hop like a bunny with my back arched while growling when I want dad to play

7) I love watching the screen saver on dad's laptop

I am tagging:

Willie

Opie

Fluffy

Aedan the Mighty Hunter

I caught my first mouse! I know to some of you that might be trivial, but I am an indoor cat and don't have many opportunities at this. OK, it was a tiny field mouse and yeah I am kinda sorry I killed it. But my dad was SOOO proud of me. You should have heard and seen him heap the praises on me!!!

I stalked the mouse all night and waited for my chance to pounce. The mouse ran about, squeaking it's mighty war cry. I was not afraid. I remained patient. It made it's move: "squeak-squeak-squeak!" I swatted it across the floor. But it was a tough mouse and it got right back up and hid in the closet. Again, I patiently waited. Suddenly it sprung out again. The classic "cat and mouse" battle was on again. This time the mouse was not so lucky. Game over.

It was a worthy adversary but in the end, the mighty jungle warrior Aedan had defeated his foe. ROAR!!!!!!!

I feel like I became a man-kitty today. The right of passage that the mouse symbolized a threshold into a new era in my life. Now just watching birds from a window doesn't seem enough. I want to chase them! I have the need for the thrill of the hunt! *SIGH* Oh well, I guess it's back to dreaming about being a fierce warrior until the next mouse sneaks into the house.

Put one mouse notch in my belt!
