I came across this beautiful mural art at one side of Holland Village Market & Food Centre, the side that faces Haagen Dazs.
Gorgeous, isn’t it. I find it fascinating, even as I feel a bit uneasy as I study it. It rekindles a suspicion deep inside me that I thought I had long banished.
That cats first came from outer space thousands of years ago, landing on our planet to enslave us. Cunningly working their way into our hearts with their fluffy cuteness and by pretending to be hopelessly derpy ever since. But we all know they are forever slyly plotting away in those pretty little heads of theirs on how to finally beat us into total submission. I have frequently caught my cats staring at me with a startlingly evil expression.They came close to domination with the ancient Egyptians, but all their effort backfired when they ended up being mummified along with the very masters they were seeking to destroy after seducing them. Progress has been slow ever since because they kept getting distracted into playtime by glittery things and puking out hairballs.
The designer of my keychain not only agrees with me, but thinks the situation is far more grim than I had thought.
Anyway, back to the mural art.
I am inspired by this artwork to call the next cat I adopt ‘Galaxy’. Or Gal, for short.
