Episode V: What’s with the cats?
There are a lot of cats here. I’m not sure what more to say, but there’s a lot of them.
I half think there might be some Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy stuff going on here, not mice running the planet but maybe the cats are in charge of Cyprus at least. Although considering the fascination I and most of the people on the planet have with cat videos, why not the world?
All shapes and sizes are here or should I say available? Available because you don’t go need to go to a pet shop to get a cat, one will just turn outside your house or workplace, with those big cute eyes. Many people (at least from EVS) are strong enough to resist the lure, however some falter, they buy and put out food for the cat. They now “own” said cat, or does the cat now own them? I’m not sure but all I’m gonna say is that the cat has been fed and petted.
One explanation for the numbers of cats is that they were introduced in large numbers to combat an infestation of snakes during a period of drought. That could have been an excuse but the real reason, this is the start of the invasion. There are over 1.5 million cats on the island, outnumbering the humans, if you’ve watched too much dystopian sci-fi like me then you can see through cuteness and deception. Worst of all, from what of I’ve seen is that Lefkosia seems to be the main base of operations, my home is the headquarters. This could be the beginning of the end. Anyway that’s it for this episode, I’m off to feed and pet the cats.
