Fat Jedi Cat update

I met the cat again at lunchtime and he got really excited when he realised I had prawns - he love them, actually climbing up onto the seat so he could be closer to them!

And I found out his name - one of the Cathedral groundsmen told me. He is called Simon. Now is that a dumb name for a cat or what?

Simon Hm....seems appropriate as it is a cathedral and Simon was a follower.

It's nice you have someone to spend your lunch with. Simon the cat.....I like that.

Simon says "Chief bring me food".

Chachi - I am not normally a cat person, dogs are more my thing. But I like Simon. I will have to get a photo of him.

Simon is a cute name, but I'm sure he'll continue to let you refer to him as Fat Jedi Cat as long as you keep sharing your lunch with him.

Cats don't care what you call them anyway. My cats are named Holly and Tigger, but I usually address them as "Kutten" and "Freak." (Although the kids take offense when I call Tigger, "Freak.")

Terri - I am sure you are right! It is hard to offend a cat while you are feeding it prawns! My daughter get upset if my wife calls the dog "Cus-turd" when he makes nasty smells.

Prawns? like shrimp? did you have them in your pocket specifically for the cat?

love the tree post...I can see why it's your fave. In colorado we don't have those nice old big trees...that seem to have the ability to tell stories...

As a tree lover, have you read the story the 'giving tree' it's a children's story...love it.

Chief Rock Chef said...

tz - Yes, like shrimp. They were my lunch (I was putting them into some soft bread rolls) but the cat got really excited when I gave him one, so...

I sometimes wonder what stories this tree could tell!

Haven't read The Giving Tree. I will see if I can find it next time I am in a book shop.

Chief - you are missing out if you've yet to read "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein. So many lessons to teach a child from that book (and learn again as a parent). It's all b/w illustration and my little guy wants to color it in all the time.

The tree is amazing. Can't imagine counting the year rings on that one.

If you feed a cat a prawn you will have a lunch companion the rest of the cats life...

Shel Silverstein is the author - it's a children's book

tz said...

oh oops, someone already gave the author's name..should have read all of the comments before responding again :-)

Beautiful post and so what I would expect from you...

Making friends with a church cat...beautiful

For what it's worth I reckon your dog has the pick of animal names...

Everytime I read it I laugh...

I am not really a cat person, but Simon is a pretty funny for a cat...

can you post a photo of him so I can see what I really think of his name ? !!!

Kiki said...

I like the name Simon....I think its osunds like a roly poly cat name!!! I think Simon is on a mission to change your mind about cats...

The Giving Tree story makes me cry every time, it's like that book, I'll Love You Forever, a complete tear jerker!!

Logziella said...

Yah, post a picture of Simon...unfortunately I'm afraid that Simon Cowell has tainted the name "Simon" forever! Ha! ...actually I like Simon Cowell...

Chief Rock Chef said...

Jenelle - I think you are right - he recognised me today...

tz - Thanks - I will have to find this book.

Sitting in Silence - Thanks. We think Custard is a great name too. As for the photo...

Kiki - So Simon is a missionary cat? Could be!

Logzie - I like Simon Cowell - he says what we are all thinking!
