All Praise and Glory be to Ceiling Cat

This is how it started. A simple knock on the door.


Her Royal Highness is always open to discussions about Ceiling Cat. She's quite a spiritual little puss, actually.


The next thing I know, HRH had purchased an evangelical symbol of Ceiling Cat and insisted that I stick it on our car. As she explained to me, we've got to keep up with those fish-loving Christians and even those Darwinian scoffers whose fish symbols have evolved little feet for climbing out of the primordial ooze.


So now I'm driving around town sporting this damn thing on my car trunk, just to keep HRH happy. She really does believe in living her faith.


"As for me and my peeps, we will serve Ceiling Cat," she quotes piously from the LOLcat Bible while sanctimoniously licking her paw.

Her Royal Highness is a very insightful being; spiritual, philosophical and scientific. I might have to write to her for advise one of these days, I need to find a nice holy frog to put on my MINI, less optional.

Tamara said...

hahahaha! Debra, this post is adorable!! :) Totally made me laugh and smile.:) I absolutely love cats...no other animal can touch the personality of a cat. I want one of those cat fish thingies too lol where did she get that??

Debra She Who Seeks said...

For those who are curious, I bought the Ceiling Cat symbol at our local environmentally friendly shop here in Edmonton called Earth's General Store, which carries lots of alternative and progressive things. I'm sure they must be available somewhere on the internet but I'm not sure where that might be.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

NEWSFLASH! These are available online at www.darwinfish.com -- plus many more styles too. Even a Flying Spaghetti Monster for you pastafarians!

Em said...

Your little cat is very pious. Bastet!

Found the little cats at Northern Sun http://www.northernsun.com/n/s/Cat-Fish-Car-Emblem-(2104).html

Thanks, Em! Another great source for those who covet thy neighbour's magnet.

Francie said...

Funny the feline gang here isn't on my case about this. I'm well prepared now, though! Thanks, Debra!

I'm a little uncomfortable that your cat decal doesn't have a litter box, too. Especially as he seems to be...um...needing one.

Lois said...

Thank you for that link! Lois

Snap said...

HRH strikes again !!!! YeeHaw!!! (Going to check out NorthernSun and Darwinfish.... !!!!!

Robin Larkspur said...

Oh, and I forgot to add that I absolutely must have a copy of ScratchTower.....good bathroom reading!!!

Suzie said...

How adorable! I should get one for my little black bug! (and very appropriate since I have 4 black kitties!

I was thinking that "Ceiling Cat" should be displayed with the feet up, but that would look too much like "Traveled On Cat", and that isn't a good thing. .plus it doesn't have that alternative to the fish thing going on.

Thanks for sharing the sources too! You've made HRH very proud!

Andrew said...

Awesome car emblem....
I may have to get one.

LaelShine said...

Ooh man, I love the cat fish! Or is that a jesus cat? Hee, briliant!

Kathy said...

Awesome!

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

A cat based belief system? Noms and sleep? I'm in and I will pay for my own robe.

Anne Johnson said...

I don't know. As deities go, Ceiling Cat is pretty demanding. At least Her followers in my house are.

Jeanne said...

Must get one of those for my car! I'm sure now that we live in town, we will be receiving a visit from the Ceiling Cat Witnesses....even though we have a No Solicitor sign up.
But we also now have a basement... does that mean we will also be getting visits from the Basement Cat Disciples?

hope and love said...

cute :)

Caroline said...

Too flippin funny! Need this laugh today. xoxo

Wizardess said...

Amen. "As for me & my peeps, we will serve Ceiling Cat." is the best line I've heard in a while. :)

SUZY8-TRACK said...

laughingwolf said...

always preferred wickedly down-to-earth basement cat to that sanctimonious, holier-than-thou, ceiling bitch... when i die and go there, i'll never be lonely, all my best pals will be WITH me :P lol

love that cat symbol, despite being a diehard pooch person!

Makropoulos said...

I really want that cat thing. It'll go really well next to the little bouncing bunny on the back of my car. (Yeah, I drive a VW Rabbit!)

Dark Mother said...

Fucking LOVE the kitty fish thingy on the car!

I had a friend who had a "jesus fish" that said gefilte in the middle : O
