Release the cats!




“I have lost my rhythm.
I can’t sleep.
I can’t eat.

I have been robbed of
my filth.”
― Charles Bukowski, Play the Piano Drunk Like a Percussion Instrument Until the Fingers Begin to Bleed a Bit

Word of  the day: Cryptadia – things to be kept hidden

I didn’t really sleep last night, by four thirty am I’d given up completely. By seven I was on a bus going to Victoria – turns out TFL decided to switch off transport for my town today and a bus going to Victoria was the only way out. However, it was time to release the cats.




I ended up at Westminster Cathedral. Inside was praying and sermons, outside were small crowds of the homeless.


Anyone who’s been following will know that I recently found a stone cat in the gardens at work, and then I made a few of my own. Today I spread them out around the Cathedral, glad it was early before people were about wondering what the fuck I was doing.





Mission complete.

  1. The people that find them will smile and that’s cool enough. If they’re inspired to make their own it could be awesome. When I next come to London they will be everywhere and a whole city will be brighter.

    I hope you sleep tonight and tomorrow your rhythm returns…

    1. Thank you very much. When I was putting them out, I liked imagining how someone would spot one, be curious, then spot another a bit further on, like a treasure trail. 🙂


    1. My cat stones taught me all I needed to know about the ways of the cat nap, thank you! Sleeping like a stone cat should be a simile. 🙂

    1. CATatonic? 😉 It’s true I’m a bit of a contradiction, I think I’m so contrary I defy my own personality. Glad you enjoyed it though! 🙂


      1. I think part of being human is living with inherent contradictions. That can result in one of two things. It either contributes to disagreement leading to dissension, or it motivates one to get to know the other person better if the relationship is based on love. The contradictions in our character makes us unique and therefore interesting.
