Question #25

Question #25 of CoAnQuMo is one best answered by my cat, who will be filling in for me in this blog post.

Here’s the question: What language does Selkie speak and what does he think about birds?


From Selkie:

I speak cat. I’ve always spoken cat. Cat is all I know, though I understand the following human phrases:

“shower time!”

“wanna treat?”

“mommy time?”

I also understand daddy’s kissy “chirp” noise to mean that I should come. And I am alarmed by the sound of garbage trucks in the alley and human farting noises. Mommy is LOUD! I don’t think it’s a message for me, though.

Speaking of chirping, you asked if I like birds. I love birds. I see them and want them. I can tell my mom doesn’t like this, but I can’t help it. I speak fast-cat when I see birds. I trill at them. They flit around and I watch them and I drool. A lot.

Thank you for asking your questions. I am done now.

with trills and purrs,


About Courtney Putnam

I first came to healing work through art and writing. Creating collage art and poetry in particular allowed me to deeply understand the benefit of self-expression in the healing process. But, I also began to see the benefit of bodywork (manual work in the form of massage and energywork in the form of Reiki) as keys to unlocking the emotional stresses we hold in our bodies. I became a Reiki practitioner in 2002, received an MFA in Creative Writing in 2003, received my massage license in the spring of 2006, and became a Reiki Master in 2010. In my practice I bring together these three areas -- the body, the mind, and the spirit (or energy body) -- so others may experience profound and positive change in their lives.
