Vladimir, Felinotherapist, Fashionista, Philosopher and Mathematician, resides in a cottage close to the Merri Creek in Melbourne Australia, sharing the facilities with his loyal can-opener, Susanna Duffy.
It’s along the creek that Vlad indulges his hobbies of bushwalking and bird-watching.
He is a domestic short hair, fully black with a distinguished sprinkle of silver, a Senior cat in prime condition although prone to
occasional frequent bouts of yech breath.
Vladimir has an extensive background in making his views known. Call him forthright, call him opinionated, call him arrogant if you wish but that’s only to be expected from a cat of his startling intellect.
Over the course of his distinguished career, Vladimir contributed much to the study of projectile forces and the power of gravity.
If a ball were thrown gently along the floor he would pursue it and, when the gravitating principle combined with friction overcame the impelling power, he would give the ball a fresh impetus, generally to turn its direction into an elliptic curve. At other times the form of the earth was the object of his experiments, and his ball was made to describe an oblate spheroid.
He wrote the defining paper on String Theory.
Vladimir’s passion in these, his senior years, is writing, and he writes from the heart.
It was when he lost his friend, Joe the Fat Tabby, that he suffered a crisis of Life Direction but, after a time of black depression, the creative urge of the truly great writer prevailed.
Here in Cat Gossip, he presents advice and homilies straight from the moggy’s mouth.
