The words in this are by Mikle. I found them on his blog, Unbearable, and knew straight away that I would make some kind of strip of them (with Mikle's permission) although I wasn't sure exactly what until I started it. And, pretty much as soon as I started it, Mikle's blog disappeared from the wwworld which is why I'm unable to link to it and the specific entry. Thankfully not all of Mikle's writing disappeared with his blog.
Oh, and I hope I don't have to point out that you shouldn't take this literally. Both Mikle and myself have had many dealings with cats and on no occasion have any cats, people or other creatures (except possibly wasps and ants in my case I'm sorry to confess) ended up flat.
UPDATE: I've just heard that Mikle has started another blog now,.... Also, this is up on Mikle's website.
