Abandonment

The Cat's Eye Tarot doesn't pull its punches with today's card!

Left on a pier, with a cage and an "Alley Cat" bowl, this black-and-white charmer's luck seems to have run out.  A woman walks away, taking another cat with her.  Who will the remaining cat miss more, the human or the other cat?  And what were they to one another - siblings, parent and child, friends, lovers?  The cat's pose speaks of despondency and mourning.  Does the cat left behind live on the houseboat with the woman's ex?  Does this mark the end of more than one relationship?  If that's the case, I guess the equivalent of the ignored upright cups in more traditional versions of this card might be the fact that the cat and the houseboat owner still have each other...

Today my Dear One and I are going to the cinema and then out for a meal, just the two of us.  I feel a bit bad leaving Big Boy behind.  Still, on Sunday we took him to the cinema and only got to watch half of "Puss in Boots" because he decided he was bored.  No idea why, as we thought it was brilliant, and plan to get the DVD as soon as it comes out to see the rest.  Anyhow, I see Big Boy in this card, feeling left behind and left out.  Hopefully, that's not really the case.  He'll be with someone he knows and loves.  Maybe he'll have more fun than us... Though we're going to see Sherlock Holmes: action and humour, with a tarot reader as well as Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law - pretty close to perfect in my eyes!


I am grateful for excellent people to help take care of Big Boy.

  1. What a cute card!

    I hope you have a wonderful date with your Dear One. You deserve it!

    I'm glad Big Boy has some great helpers. I, too, am afraid to take Pele out to any kind of movie. Her ADHD symptoms are way too strong to sit through anything that long. Ah well!

    Big Hugs and Puss in Boots Adventure,

  2. Hi MM,

    Would you believe, Big Boy has actually been to the cinema about 7 times with one of his carers, and stayed for the whole film 5 or 6 of those times! But we've tried taking him twice - once he enjoyed the ads, then fussed at the film, the second was "Puss", of which we got to see 40 minutes. Don't know if it's just because he wants to play with mum and dad rather than watch films...

    Hope that, with the improvements you've been seeing with Pele, you may be able to go to the cinema with her at some point!

    As for our date, it was lovely! Great film, tasty food, and some alone time afterwards, too ;)

    Happy Hugs,
    Chloë
