UBIQUE is a 2,5 years old gray-brown female
tabby cat. She is a very friendly and tender being, especially fond of flies
to catch and dogs to play with. Her gracious and swift movements are a credit
to her name (from “ubiquity” – an ability to appear in two places at the
same time). Her favorite place for playing games is the bathtub. She does not
mind at all when it is wet. Her origin is known only on the side of her
mother, but her dad was probably a stray angora cat. The special ability of
Ubique is that she wakes me up when I forget to set up my alarm clock.
Some time ago Ubique fell down from the window (third floor) and was very
sick. Her injuries were not serious but very painful. She was crying like a
little baby and for a week could not move without problems. Now she is fully
recovered and playing again.
Ubique fell in love with her new toy, a white fur mouse with pink ears. She
holds the mouse in her mouth and carries it everywhere she goes and even she
sleeps with it. During the hot summer days she takes the mouse to her bowl of
water and gives it a good bath several times a day. When the mouse is
completely soggy she brings it to me and wants me to throw it away, so she can
run after it, catch it and bring it back to me - exactly the same way as dogs
are used to do. I am just waiting for the moment when she'll start to bark...
She has also invented a new "kitty" way of movement for which she
had to find inspiration in some sci-fi book. Same as the spaceships gain
acceleration from a close approach to a massive object, running Ubique jumps
from the side on the wall and rebounds - her speed being increased by this
sling-shot method. I suspect her that she must be reading my favorite sci-fi
books when I am out!
In June 2001, I was hosting the Native American band BLACKFIRE
in my apartment in Prague. The father of young musicians - a Navajo
medicine-man - became Ubique's favorite human-pet. Jones was playing with her
almost all the time spent indoors in spite of the affirmation of his family,
that their cats leave the place as soon as he comes in and sincerely hate him.
Ubique loves Jones and Jones loves Ubique and kept on sending her his best
regards in e-mails from abroad where BLACKFIRE continued their European
