Trix in China
Trix’ Travels was created with full cooperation of Trix the cat. She has been perfectly safe and lazy during the entire process that will now be posted every other Saturday. This weeks stop: China.
I don’t like it here… I heard they eat cats in this country, and some people have been looking at me like I’m some kind of giant walking snack. I don’t like it, and I want to go home human! You hear me?
I think she’s ignoring me, but I’m quite serious. The stench in the cities here are barely do-able. I’m a cat, I have a sensitive sense of smell, although my nose felt numb almost as soon as we stepped out of the train. My travel companion said that the air quality here isn’t very good so walking will be a bit exhausting.
Exhausting? Try impossible. I’m a 14 year old cat, that is 72 in human-years! Old ladies should not exercise while they can barely breath, and cats should not really exercise at all! But the human (as usual) would not listen to my complaints, so now she is making me walk on this weird structure they call The Great Wall. I’m not really fascinated by it. It was supposedly build to keep other humans out, which seems like a completely ridiculous thing to do. Why would you keep others out? Cats never build walls, we just tell people politely that this is our territorium and that we want them to leave. When the other cat does not listen, you kick his ass in a proper duel and that is the end of it.
The humans on this wall are quite different from cats though. Someone just did a weird move on one of the tiny houses and said to his friend: “Now all of China knows you’re here.” I don’t know why he did that but it sounded pretty serious, like the friend was someone he was fighting against. Maybe it is a history thing, I’ll ask my human. She seems to know a lot about human-history, although she has a lousy knowledge on cat-related stuff.
