Just A Cat Sitting On The Stairs | Broadsheet.ie.
I’ve been very lax about my weekly photos, but look, I distract you with a cat

This is the story of an abandoned cat, an old hound dog who becomes her friend and her kittens, and the family they become. But it is also a tale of old Grandmother Moccasin, a shape-chaning lemia, who is trapped in jar and by her own anger and resentment at her betrayal, as she sees it, by those she loved. And through its blending of myth and floklore it is the perfect fit for my Once Upon a Time reading list. It is also a children’s book, so it shouldn’t take you to long to get through. Although that does not mean that this doesn’t have darkness.
This is such a typical pose for that beast. Always demanding and thinking only of himself. (Although we usually refer to him as her, in order to distinguish the cat from the dog. He = dog. She = cat. How odd….)
