SATURDAY CATURDAY. Words, pictures enough
Episode 17. Lexie as dreampsychologist
================================================================

"Angry birds," Lexie blurted and spilled soup from his fat lip. Ernest and Lisa looked automatically to the backyard. No bird. Lisa's cat Queen Juliana gave her a haughty look.
Lexie had been beaten up by a boy from school who claimed he could not learn very well because Lexie smelled like cat piss. Lexie' s mother had gone to the police to file a complaint against the boy and the school. According to the boy's father Lexie not only stank, but he was crazy and his mother was a whore and his father a terrorist. Duly noted by the police and an extra complaint for slander by the lawyer of Lexie's mother, who was a highschool teacher and very well insured for legal aid. Now he was in another school, private, smaller, more interesting and all the kids had good tablets and phones.
Ernest and Lisa had been spooning their soup silently. Suddenly Ernest banged with his fist on the table. The plates and soup flew through the air leaving Lexie and Lisa openmouthed.
"The logo!" "Loco," it echoed through Lisa's head, "didn' t that mean crazy."
"Cool," cried Lexie.
Queen Juliana had started to lick Harry Potter, Lexie's kitten. In case they would have to go to an asylum they would go dignified. Nothing like that. A tear rolled down Ernest's cheek from behind his dark wraparound glasses. He did' t wear them because his wife had recently died from cancer. He had a big shiner. In his way beaten up because he had walked with his late wife's fluffy little white poodle and a little girl had wanted to stroke it. Later at night some guys had been waiting for him and Peppermint the poodle to make it clear that he better left the neighbourhood. "Lexie, you are a genius!"
Queen Juliana jumped on the table to lick the tear from his face.
"Oh, that lady with the torch," Lisa cried and wrapped a hand around her throat. She had an invisible emotional wound, in her soul. She had had strange dreams after her husband had died and she had been accused of dabbling in the occult, of being a junkie, a tax fraud and a dirty old cougar, everything in the blog of the neighbourhood center.
Even with heavy sleeping pills Ernest had dreamt of his wife rising from her grave in a white shroud holding a torch over the graves in the cemetery. But she was also another woman. A woman who looked familiar and who woke him every time. However, not without hyperventilating. Harry Potter had joined Queen Juliana on the table and licked the plates. The kitten changed about every night into a dragon that took Lexie on his back and flew him around the stars. For Lexie dreams were as real as fat lips.
"It is that lady at the beginning of the movie," Lisa concluded. Lexie nodded. She went to the kitchen and came back with an icecream. "For your lip."
"Any ideas about my dream?"
He nodded and licked his icecream. It seemed Queen Juliana and Harry Potter rolled over the floor with laughter.
Lisa believed in past lives. Also for cats.
"You and Queen Juliana have been Romans. Julianus is a Roman name and Julius was a Roman Consul in Tunesia where my father was born. My father's name is Marcus, also Roman. And the Romans have lived here as well when it was a swamp. They found pieces of mosaic tiles under that dirty pond. The building company had created a nice exhibition of antique things they had found during the drainage of the polluted water and he had been there with his new school.
"We should go there as well," Ernest said to Lisa, "maybe something looks familiar to you."
Lisa stroked her cat. Next month she would be fifty. In less than a year death had separated her from her husband after a thirty year marriage right from her patents' lap. Never been on her own she had desintegrated at home on tranquillizers and online shopping. Like her grandmother, who had had the milk and groceries delivered at home.
"Any zombies or ghosts?" Lexie asked. "That cyberbully from the neighbourhood center is promoted to another place and the center is going to be demolished and replaced by a highrise and a sport and yoga center." Talking with Lexie was a bit like following a monkey from tree to tree. Quite refreshing after reading blogs and having video hangouts with family.
"She had been raised and lived like the princess and the pea," Lisa mused. "And just like in the original story a cat had helped to find her identity."
"When it rains everybody stays under the ground," Ernest answered Lexie. He and Lisa had been to the graveyard and on the way back collected Lexie from his new school and fetched Harry Potter to have lunch together till his mother came from her work.
Lisa wondered how children that grew up with angry birds would be like adults. That would be another story.

Until now I've lost 126 mothers, 84 grandmas and a few siblings. I'm responsible for the death of thousands of fluffy animals, dolphins, whales and turtles. A few guys from Angola, Mali, Laos and Guyana still suffer from rare deseases because I didn't share posts or forwarded mails. Can we please stop this? I'm starting to have sleeping disorders...!

Hello 😊 This is one of my girls, Wuzza. She was my 1st rescue Meezer. She's 10 now. About a year ago, she was having some issues. Excessive drooling. After a thorough check up, her Vet concluded it was something environmental. Thought maybe she had gotten into some sort of cleaning agent. Only happened a few more times and crossed my mind that it was possibly a seizure. Then as fast as it appeared, it went away. Skip forward 1 year and it happened again. This time it was definitely a seizure. Everything I know says let it pass. Not much you can or should do, unless they become frequent. Was hoping it would go away like last time. Well, she had 2 more incidences, so I called the vet Saturday am. She has an appointment Monday am at 10:40, sooner if they get a cancellation. Going to start with a complete blood panel and go from there. She had a pretty rough life before we got her at 1½ yo. We knew she had a history of abuse. We didn't know the severity till later on. I know we all think our babies are special, but she is definitely a one of a kind cat. I've seen how supportive this group is when one of ours is facing some challenges. I'm asking for some of that compassion today. I'm sure I won't know anything for a few days, but please keep us in your thoughts and prayers and I will update this post when we know something.
T/Y 😘

#Caturday All adverts in London’s Clapham Common underground station have been replaced with cat pictures ►
If you arrived at Clapham Common tube station one morning to find that every advert had been replaced with pictures of cats, you'd no doubt logically conclude that our feline friends paid for the initiative as part of their first steps towards world domination. And in a way you'd be right, because the stunt was indeed paid for by CATS.
