Lamont and Dude Discuss Smilodon Ambitions



“You’re famous among the feline races. Did you know? They want to be smilodons or think they might have been smilodons in the remote past. There’s such a house feline in Switzerland, Tabby T. Cat and one in Colorado named Lucy.”

“It’s just a suit, Lamont.”

“I know that. You know that, but it appears that some of our feline neighbors are manipulating their humans into writing blogs for them in which they express smilodon dreams.”

“What are you on, Lamont? You know today’s marijuana is not the marijuana of any of your youths, right?”

“I don’t think you should be asking me that. Maybe the humans who transcribe the thoughts of their cats need that warning, not me.”

“Remember our non-human lives, Lamont? We DID communicate without language. There was always the fear that the prey would read our minds and know our plans. Who’s to say the felines AREN’T communicating with their people? Maybe these cats, tell all this to their humans. I don’t think we should reject the whole idea prematurely.”

“But why a blog?”

“That is a good question.”


Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with a few years ago. They have the uncanny ability to remember many of their past incarnations which gives them a unique perspective on life, the universe and everything.

  1. House Feline? We prefer to talk of the house humans. When the humans are sleeping we can manipulate them into doing good things like serving tuna fish. Do not forget the smilodon is not yet extinct, we are waiting for our chance to return.

  2. Delightful! I sincerely believe it’s true, cats (since I have 3 presently) communicate quite clearly without lifting a paw. At the moment we have a struggle between Porsche ( my cat) and Abbey the interloper. Porsche is healed but the trauma left him fearful of going outside. We found a solution, park one of the vehicles close to the door so he has something to hide under. It worked, he’s willingly going outside again. Interestingly though, the days he wore the dreaded “cone” the other 2 cats were afraid of him. Since he and Abbey have been at odds, he growls while she hisses. Usually, I would have stepped in, but they need to settle this “thing” they have going. He turns and looks at her and it’s as though words are exchanged and she responds accordingly, either giving him a wide birth or moving closer. They don’t want us to know they are friends, but we’ve observed the same head nods and slight movements outside as they work in tandem to capture their prey. Amusing most of the time, annoying on occasion, but their silence communication is very apparent.

    • I know they do. They have their heirarchies and teams and ideas. I want my dogs home with me, but Bear HAS to protect me and I can’t have a 75 pound dog on my lap right now. But HER mind will pick up on my damage, injury, distress and lingering post-op sadness and try to save me. I don’t know when they can come home, but I miss our “conversations.” ❀

      • Awe! It’s truly amazing when you are so insync with your pets and they care. My cat does the same, when he knows I’m in pain, he has to be on top of me or at the very least beside me, and if it’s my son, then he does the same with him. They are very intuitive. Hopefully all is going according to plan and your progress is obvious daily. You have done incredibly well. I can’t imagine being up and about the day after surgery. wow!
