Zoomorphic Delusions…

May 30, 2011

Jill Taylor Zoomorphic Cat*

The Lady and I like to check out incoming links to the blog to see who is writing about me or referring visitors my way.

Bedford Cheese Shop, which claims to be “The Best New Cheeseshop in Brooklyn, NY” (although according to its press page, it appears to have been around since at least 2003), wrote about Cougar Gold and in an article and made the following comment about moi:

“The person who writescheesemonger.wordpress.com even gave it “4 paws out of 4 paws (cause that’s all I got).” Despite the serious zoomorphic delusions going on here, that’s a pretty rave review.”


First of all, let me thank you for the referral to the blog… but I must correct your incorrect assessment of moi, your (not so humble) feline foodie…

According to the dictionary, the definition of “zoomorphic” is:

zo·o·mor·phism http://img.tfd.com/m/sound.swf (z-môrfzm)


1. Attribution of animal characteristics or qualities to a god.
2. Use of animal forms in symbolism, literature, or graphic representation.
The “god” attribution is cool; but I suspect that the Bedford Cheeseshop humankind writing that sentence was referring more to definition #2.
… and that same humankind refers to me as a “person”…  While, it may be true that The Lady helps with the spelling (felines are notoriously poor spellers… what… we can’t be perfect at everything… just the important stuff…), I am 100% of the feline persuasion and deeply offended to be considered of the lowly humankind or “person” persuasion…
Sheesh… it’s a shame I even have to write this to correct none other than a humankind… I’d write more; but on this subject, let me add… that’s all I’ve got…
*The Zoomorphic cat shown above was created by Washington State Artist, Jill Taylor, whose work can be viewed and purchased by clicking here.
