As I walk into the kitchen, I spot Kitty sprawled out on the dining table with rays of warm sunlight striped across his jet black fur. Kitty gazes up at me with his huge, green eyes, lets out a soft little cry to say hello and jumps to his feet. He scampers over to me then standing on his hind legs, he puts his paws on my thigh. I pick him up, knowing that after a long day alone, he's dying to be handled. I hold him in my arms as if he were my child, and he immediately begins to almost vibrate. His soft purr gradually gets louder and louder as I caress his little charcoal belly. My arms start to weaken from Kitty's weight, but I hold him a little longer knowing that this is to him Heaven. I realize that I have, for the moment, let go of my schoolwork worries. For some reason, Kitty alway...

Feline Companionship in Cat in the Rain Essay - Feline Companionship in Cat in the Rain I chose to write about Hemingway's "Cat in the Rain" in part because it is one of the few of his stories I have read which has an "ending." There is a specific event at the end of the story which wraps up the story's events and gives the reader a sense of finality not found in most of Hemingway's short works. Written in his characteristic sparse style, "Cat in the Rain" is seemingly simple in plot and character, but a careful reading reveals deeper meaning behind its elements....   [tags: Cat in the Rain Essays] 789 words

The Black Cat - Abnormal Madness Essay - The  Black Cat - Abnormal Madness It seems that almost every Edgar Allen Poe story ever written has a much deeper and darker meaning hidden inside its lines. Many of these pieces are demented enough even if the reader does not read "between the lines." "The Black Cat" is an example of this kind of story. In this morbid look into the narrator's mind, the reader follows the narrator as he does many disturbing things in his household. This story, like many of Poe's other pieces, is a venture into abnormal psychology where the narrator is completely insane, not only because of the horrible things he does to his cat and his wife, but  because of his state...   [tags: Poe The Black Cat Essays] 1191 words

Essay about The Masterpiece of Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle - The Masterpiece  of Cat's Cradle      Kurt Vonnegut,  critically acclaimed author  of several best-selling novels, uses  self-expression and psychological manipulation to  stress to the reader  his beliefs and ideas dispersed within  the context of Cat's  Cradle. From reading this  novel, one  might attribute  perplexity pondering over the plot  and general story  line of the  book. Cat's Cradle entangles  itself  in  many  interesting  changes of events; strange outlandish ideas and psychological "black holes" can be found with just the flip of a page....   [tags: Cat's Cradle Essays]

Essay about The Satire of Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle - The Satire of Cat's Cradle       Cat's Cradle is, "Vonnegut's most highly praised novel. Filled with humor and unforgettable characters, this apocalyptic story tells of Earth's ultimate end, and presents a vision of the future that is both darkly fantastic and funny, as Vonnegut weaves a satirical commentary on modern man and his madness" (Barnes and Noble n.pag).  In Cat's Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut uses satire as a vehicle for threatened self-destruction when he designs the government of San Lorenzo.  In addition, the Bokonists practice of Boko-maru, and if the world is going to end in total self destruction and ruin, then people will die, no matter how good people are and what religion peop...   [tags: Cat's Cradle Essays]

Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle Essay - Paradoxical Nature of Life Exposed in Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle Kurt Vonnegut's apocalyptic novel, Cat's Cradle, might well be called an intricate network of paradox and irony. It is with such irony and paradox that Vonnegut himself describes his work as "poisoning minds with humanity...to encourage them to make a better world" (The Vonnegut Statement 107). In Cat's Cradle, Vonnegut does not tie his co-mingled plots into easy to digest bites as the short chapter structure of his story implies....   [tags: Kurt Vonnegut Cat's Cradle Essays] 424 words

Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle Essay - Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle vs Our Assumptions Regarding War, Progress, and Religion If one of Vonnegut's purposes for writing is "to poison minds with humanity" (qtd. by Scholes, per Griffin), then the weapon of choice in Cat's Cradle, is satire. Cat's Cradle "poison[s] minds" only by revealing the toxins that are already present in the system. Vonnegut's brand of satire serves as a sort of syrup of ipecac on human folly, and if we are "to make a better world" as he would have it, we should understand how truly virulent human enterprise can be....   [tags: Vonnegut Cat's Cradle] 384 words

Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle Essay - Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle Vonnegut deals a lot with fantasy in his book, Cat's Cradle. From the beginning, he talks about the religion that he follows: Bokonism. This is not a real religion, however he has rules, songs, scriptures, and opinions of a person that practices this fantasy religion. Within his description of this religion however is black humor as well. I think that by him making up this whole religion and an entire island of people who follow it, is in a way mocking today's religion and the way that people are dedicated to their beliefs....   [tags: Vonnegut Cat's Cradle Essays] 374 words

Cat's Cradle Essay - The Human Vaccination Modern medicine has proved that the best way to prevent the contraction of a disease for humans is to inject a tolerable amount of the virus into the host and let the individual's immune system build a defense capable of withstanding future invasions of the same strand. The small pox vaccination, for example, has eliminated the disease from almost every nation on Earth.
