Zeezee the Oracle

If you have time, please stop by to say hi and accept the love from the Oracle and High Priestess of the Tea World, known to most of the mortals as Zeezee, and in the immortal world as simply the Oracle Cat. There are not many things that she doesn’t know about, as I can remember her being omnipresent throughout our house and also knowing where we and the food happens to be at any point. She is indirectly related to the Egyptian cat goddess of war, Bastet.

Getting back to the mortal language, this is a cat which was born in one of the corners of our house before we moved there. It was always there, and we did see it more often than we would have expected it to, as it is known to make its presence felt. It is still more of a wanderer though, visiting many houses in the locality, and making sure that most of the humans get a glimpse of its face and hear its meow thing. It is grown up, but not quite as big as the average cat.

It is only after a few months being gone since we came to live here, that we noticed that it makes more noise than our television, and that it really wanted to get some attention and for sure, some food. Most of the time it just wandered around the gate making the usual noises as it was scared of the vehicles that pass through the road. It detects the sound of a car or bike from a distance and runs away very early. It was one of those days when it was running away.

So we decided to introduce ourselves to the stranger and put some milk on a plate and put it in front of our car. It was hesitant at first, but as soon as we were distant enough, it pounced and finished even the last drop. Then it went under the car and made it the new home, something which we realized the next day. Beneath the Chevrolet Beat was the new resting place for the cat, and even as it often jumps around and sits on the two-wheelers, beneath the car was the one safe place.

The demands have been rising ever since. It has been in more need as it now comes closer to us even as this cat never lets us touch it, and now it has Tiger biscuits with milk daily – seemingly proving that it belongs to the tiger family indeed. Well, it does have a few stripes. Its latest home is our old television stand which we use as the newspaper desk at the sit-out area. With some old clothes lying there, the place now serves as the official cat bed, a royal resting place.

The problem is that we are basically vegetarian, and unless guests arrive, we don’t buy non-vegetarian. But we manage to get some bones from somewhere, and are always looking for some left-overs to feed the cat. It quickly responds to the sound “C” or “Zee”, and therefore we decided to call her Zeezee. Nowadays, it is less scared of us as it wanders around inside the house and gets out to rest at its favourite places. It is now part of home.

We are trying our luck at growing some fruits and vegetables – it is indeed a good feeling, but there is nothing like having a cat. I haven’t actually felt that any other creature can be as cute and as admirable as a cat, and I am glad that I finally got one without much trouble. Nowadays, Zeezee spends her time hunting spiders, cockroaches and lizards, saving the house from such intruders. I do hope that I can have a little black kitten too and name her Agniezska Radwanska 😀 Looking forward to that day 😉

    • Thanks 🙂 The best thing about cats is that they are always good enough to handle themselves – just need the love and food 😀
      You have a good Gulgul at home? 😀

    • It automatically finds the non veg from somewhere when we can’t get some bones 😀 And being the mighty hunter helps – we respect when we find remains of some dead insect near it; house is almost spider and cockroach free 😉 Hope this one doesn’t stop growing fond of the house 🙂

  1. Oh I love this post. “There is nothing like having a cat at home.” said your introduction on the Vine and you make me believe that with this! 😀 (PS – I have tiger biscuits with milk, daily. So that means your cat and me belong to the same family. My husband will agree. :P)

  2. Lovely post 🙂 Brought back memories of a time when I had adopted two cats with my girlfriend.. We called them our kids (Yeah, we were silly back then 🙂 ) One was named Habibi and the other was named Chanda. They are adorable little creatures.
