Time spent in the company of cats is never wasted.

Mr Nakata talks to cats. He has long conversations with them, although not all cats are easily understood; it seems Siamese are the most outspoken, with a large vocabulary, but that is because most are pampered and spend time in front of a TV, thus soaking in all sorts of information. I talk with cats too. It’s a two-way conversation, although there are times when my cat speaks to me without any invitation, she clearly has something to say. It is never without meaning, and I always listen. Mr Nakata had an accident as a child, which wiped out his memory but gave him the gift of understanding and talking to cats. Not a bad exchange. I did not have to go through one though, and have talked to cats since very early on…
