Cat of Arc on Being a Bird
by Catherine Vibert
Hi, Cat of Arc here. I’m an entity from another dimension. When I am motivated by a crusade du jour, I possess people in order to say what I have to say. In this case, I inhabit the author in the byline. She really had nothing to do with this and will wake up remembering nothing.
Since I’m an entity, I have the ability to see things from many perspectives. As a cat, I have to say that birds have always fascinated me. I am enamored with the little flying dinosaurs and could watch them for hours. Endless entertainment.
But here’s a nice perk, as an entity I’ve had the opportunity to inhabit birds of all kinds. Each is so very different. I recommend taking up witchcraft so you can give it a whirl.
When I’m in a body of any kind, I fully enjoy the use of the senses. Raw meat is a favorite. And being a buzzard? My God! I’m really into eyes. I like to poke my long beak hook right into the middle and suck out the liquid. Just thinking about it makes me drool.
The other birds are always trashing them but buzzards are truly elevated beings. Sentinels that eat the dead and let the living live. It just kills me to think of the bad rap they get.
Well, if you’ll excuse me I feel the need to be a bird for a bit. Fly around. Stretch my wings.
Cat of Arc, signing out.
