The Inconsolable Pain of LossNever in my worst nightmares had I ever expected to hear the news of  D’s unexpected demise. And certainly not in the way he died. In good health and fine fettle, he was someone who found a way to your heart just by being his soothing, silent self. His quite demeanour and unassuming ways reflected not only a highly refined upbringing but also a level of maturity that singled him out in a crowd.

That fateful afternoon, death beckoned him in a swimming pool far from home, after a heavy meal, dragging him down remorselessly to the bottom of the deep end. My thoughts went to his beautiful wife who had been such an inseparable part of him, his young daughter with whom he’d enjoyed such a deep bond and his recently married son.

Soon after putting up the horse-hide curtain that will be the entrance to the home, Woman succeeds in domesticating the Horse, the Dog and the Cow, and making them play by her rules. But although the Cat looks in and sees the tempting meat she is cooking, the comfortable fire that she has made to keep away the cold, he never goes in or submits to her conditions.

It is after a baby is born to Man and Woman that Cat makes his presence secure in the home – without being bound by its rules! He makes the baby laugh and gurgle, calms it to sleep, and kills a mouse who threatens the Woman’s serenity. The Woman then has to accept that he is free to come and go as he likes, and stay within the house when he chooses. Anyone who has had an adult tom cat will tell you that this is pretty much what cats do! However domesticated cats are, they never lose that wild streak that sets them apart from other ‘pets’.
