The Royal Cat

Karen Anderson

Cats have come to me and have demanded their own column. Herein read about a cat born under any sign. Asimgres cats have been worshiped since time immemorial, I felt commanded to follow the cats’ request, and as the Sun has now entered the sign of the large, regal cat, Leo, this is the ideal starry moment for this tribute to the feline creatures.
Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac, the sign of the regal and loyal lion. This is the height of the summer and festivities abound. Leo likes theatre and musical events and creativity. A childlike sense of wonder permeates this month, and appropriately, the children are free to roam their worlds and lead us into delight.

Aries March 21 – April 20

The athletic Aries alley cat always excels in “cathletics.” This active energetic feline is constantly on the go. Here is the winner in any game of ‘tug of paw.’ This cat will take you to the climbing gymnasium and show you how it should be done. Provide gear and games and exercise.

Taurus April 21 – May 21

Whether your cat born under this sign is a terrible tiger, a telepathic tabby or a Taurean
tortoiseshell, you have a luxury loving cat napper on your hands. As a servant to this feline, you must create an over-the-top dining area. Provide only the fanciest of food and treats.

Gemini May 22 – June 21

The lively Gemini feline is the ‘cat in the hat’ in the fabulous large red and white striped headpiece. With this cat you can have lots of good fun that is funny. He is the one who can hop up and down on the ball with a cup and a cake. Provide a cup and a cake and a fish and a rake.

Cancer June 22 – July 22
The Cancerian coon cat can be found taking a catnap any time of the day or night. Thisfuzzy feline is a family and home-loving creature. You must let this cat know, without a doubt, that their environment is indubitably secure. Provide a woven basket and a warm blankie.

Leo July 22 – Aug. 22
Leo the lion is the royal, loyal cat, exacting tribute from human retainers. The King and
Queen of the beasts are the King and Queen of your house and yard. Provide several humans to serve as subservient subjects and design exquisite thrones for the naps of the royal family.

Virgo Aug. 23 -Sept. 23
This is the clever cat who always lands on his feet, Puss ‘n Boots, from the French tale of 1695, who uses his wiles to gain wealth and the hand of a princess for his master. This fastidious, accomplished kitty often succeeds in training his human. He will provide for you.

Libra Sept. 24 – Oct. 23
The luxury loving Libran cat is best symbolized by Bastet, the cat goddess who was worshiped by the Egyptians, who represents ultimate femininity. Provide a jeweled collar, preferably with real jewels. It would be best if you purchased this for her in Paris.

Scorpio Oct. 24 – Nov. 22
Let’s let the cat out of the bag, and reveal the fact that the Scorpio cat leads a double life: quiet acquiescent pet by day, neighborhood mafioso by night. He will be howling like a soprano on the wooden fence next to the alley. Provide a cat door for your midnight prowler.

Sagittarius Nov. 23 – Dec. 21
The Sagittarian cat is an adventurer. She is the pussy in the poem “The Owl and the Pussy-Ca,t” heading to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat, taking some honey and plenty of money and dancing by the light of the moon. Provide a passport, a small guitar and a runcible spoon.

Capricorn Dec. 22 – Jan 20
The long-lived Capricorn cat has deep reserves to draw upon in her many lives. She is the one with the fabled nine lives. She has endurance; she can play cat and mouse for hours and hours and we know who will win. Provide a stable home life and several mice.

Aquarius Jan. 21 – Feb. 19
This fractious feline is as inventive as Felix the Cat. Whenever this wonderful, wonderful cat is in a fix, he reaches into his bag of tricks. You’ll laugh so hard your sides will ache and your heart will go pit-a-pat with amazing Felix. Provide a bag of tricks.

Pisces Feb. 20- March 20
The Pisces Persian pussy makes the most ‘purr-fect’ pet possible on the planet. This cat naps and dreams of Casbahs in other countries and cat goddesses and loves sleeping the day away. Provide an exquisite embroidered cushion and the finest of imported catnip.
