I wonder if I could turn this story into a lucrative book and movie, for it shows that Ceiling Cat is not a delusion, but is real. Move over, Todd Burpo!
One of my friends, an atheist, is a flight attendant for a large airline, and I gave her a button for her flight apron—one of the many lovely buttons made by reader Su. It has the famous picture of Ceiling Cat peering down from his hole in the heavens, along with the caption: “Ceiling Cat: Official Emissary” (see below).
But I’ll let her tell her story, sent in an email with the header “Excellent Ceiling Cat story”. [Note: flight attendants have a complicated jargon; “pax” means “passengers”, “wx” means “weather,” and so on.]
I have the BEST Ceiling Cat story! I wear the “Official Ceiling Cat Emissary” button you gave me on my apron at work. Pax often ask me about it and I tell them the Good News that CC created the universe and is always watching. Yesterday two ladies stopped me during the flight to ask about Him. They loved it! One of them said she had been an ICU nurse and they had a patient who was always talking about the cat in the ceiling who was watching over him. He referred to this cat as the Ceiling Cat. The nurses didn’t pay much attention to his rantings about Ceiling Cat, just assuming he was delusional.
One morning a nurse walked into the patient’s room—and there was a kitten lying across his chest! A mother cat had given birth to a litter in the ceiling above the patient (it had those removable ceiling tiles) and somehow the kitten made its way down to the patient’s bed. Ceiling Cat is REAL and watches over us!!!
Here is the apron that smoked out the real Ceiling Cat:
Note: The young lady in question has added a bonus: if you ever see this flight attendant wearing the button, tell her that you learned about Ceiling Cat from this website, and you’ll get a free drink!
And. . . Maru became seven yesterday! How time flies, and as the years past, our boy seems to get tubbier than ever (Mugomogu, of course denies that he’s overweight). Some of the recent highlights of la vie d’un matou are shown in his birthday clip, along with his new and much smaller feline compantion, Hana:
