The earlier version was better, I think. Five cats reach f-

very difficult to decide how one can produce the effect one seeks in precise words, Balan. now that you mention it, i am reverting to the earlier version.

i loved this one.totally..curious, i cud see the cats making a sudden break with the words...f i r s t. a sudden halt after the run and then meow- ing circling the fisherman...

P. Venugopal said...

that's it! then more cats coming, the dames with all the cunning of the species--sweet-talk, flirting and all--to get the best bargain from the fishmonger. haven't you seen this everyday in your lane?

Me said...

oh yea. long after the fisherman goes,the ladies linger around with hot discussions and the restless cats meow-ing even hard..ha ha..poor things..

cats are great people. just watch how detached and relaxed they are and at the same time how alert and agile when the situation demands. learn from them the art of relaxing.
