An Odd Ode to Psycho-Cats!

uniqueproductstobuy asks:

What Are Cats?

Well, to me they seem to be:

with paws
that catch birds,
other little
furry animals
play with balls
ignore you
when you call
hate vets, baths, waterfalls
that’s not all!

Give me a dog

any day

give me a frog

give me liberty

or even

give me a kitten

who’s smitten!


I like cats

even though


they act





RTS – Facing the Challenge of Mental Health:

How about a “hip cat”? Wasn’t that a saying during the late 60’s and 70’s? 

Jive Talkin’ in the 20th Century:

Hip or Hep, which came first?

Apparently, hep, appearing in the early 20th century. It meant in-the -know or fashionable and was popular amongst Jazz musicians like me.

But it’s origin is mysterious. One theory traces it to Army drill instructors, who yelled out marching cadences with “Hep, two, three, four.”

A second theory connects to the phrase “on the hip,” which meant “to use, or be addicted.”

Yet another theory says it was brought into our language, as it connected to a Western Africa word “hipi,” which means “to open ones eyes. Hipster first made the scene in the 1940s, to describe fans of bebop jazz. Hippie came along in the 1960s, as a term for any youth that embraced the counterculture. Hipster and hip have survived, while hep and hippie are heard much less these days, as is the ultra-rare heppie!
