I'm too sexy for my cat, too sexy for my cat……'Cause I'm a model, you know what I mean, And I do my little turn on the catwalk…  

3# Have You Ever Wonder?

I'm Too Sexy Lyrics

Do you remember the song “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred which was popular in the 90s? Catwalk and a cat walks. When I was a little girl, I often wonder why models in
fashion show always being told demonstrate clothing and accessories in a catwalk.

One day when one of my female cats came towards me, I noticed that she walked very gracefully, feminine, so neat, yet charming and alluring. Just exactly the same as if a model walk in a catwalk. Of course, the history of cats had taken place for centuries before the fashion show with models and catwalk invented. I think that human adopted the way a cat is walking for models in fashion show. It turns out in this matter humans being the copycat of cats’ behave.

The hypothetical I had made was proven in one of online dictionary. It says that the term may also be derived from a more literal meaning, as models on the catwalk often use a walk which is exactly like that of a cat, placing one foot directly in front of the other to produce an alluring swagger in which the hips take on a more exaggerated movement. In
fashion jargon, "what's on the catwalk" or similar phrasing can refer to whatever is new and popular in fashion.
A catwalk is also known as a runway, especially when it is not elevated, and as such has been used in such instances as the title of the television series Project Runway. Another interesting fact supports the use of catwalk terminology due to cat’s performance. Another meaning for catwalk is high walkway, a narrow walkway high above the ground, e.g. along the side of a building or behind the stage in a theatre. For that reason all because cats can walk safely on narrow surfaces. Now the wondering resolved.

Friendships Among Long Time Foes  

Another Revolution in Behavior?

Cats make friendship with dogs, nothing unusual these days. The past few years, even my darling cats tend to ignore the rats that often pass by in front of their noses. No eagerness, no excitement and no curiosity to catch rodents. Perhaps they are tired being enemies for centuries. Many people now keep their furry companion as family member at home not just cats or dogs only. Even squirrel, rabbit, chick, and sometimes rat also included. Apparently, they all make amicable settlement. Finally. No foe, no enemy. Neither of them consider as prey.

It is truly amazing moment and touching when we have the opportunity to look closely on
cats playing with dogs cheerfully. They care each other by licking one to another, what a wonderful love. No hatred and not even hostility exist. The best part is, there are female dogs breastfeeding to kittens and vice versa. Or, mommy cat taking care chicks.

Mother of chicks
They are all living together peacefully, so peaceful.

Last but not least, how about a dog kindly giving ride to a cat on his back with a rat on top of them?

What strike me the most is how come they can all live together in tranquility?
A friend told me that those things could only occur if they are raised together since toddler. On the contrary, if we try to unite and bring them together when they already grown up or adult, it would be most likely difficult. Though it is possible, but the possibility is very scarce. This hypothesis could be right, or wrong. If in animal kingdom the long time enemies could settle down their well known hostile destiny and make loving relationship as shown above, then why on earth, we as humans still fail to do so?
