Cardiff Cat Writes Award-Winning Welsh-Language Poem – By Walking Up and Down Owner’s Keyboard

2407

A Cardiff cat has written an award-winning Welsh language poem by walking across its owner’s computer keyboard.

6 month old Tiddles, from Splott, wrote his poem ‘Gfwecfricn’ while owner Barbara Malley was attempting to finish some college work. His unusual style caught the attention of a Welsh language poetry competition and was duly awarded the winner.

Owner Barbara told WalesOnCraic:

“I was trying to finish off an essay when this silly twat came looking for attention and started walking up and down my keyboard. What he came up with, I entered into a competition for a laugh – and the silly bugger went and won it!”

Competition judges told WalesOnCraic:

“His work emphasised his depth of illusion, at once intertwined with fate and circumstance; a pastiche of the post-modern world, marked by a conscious desire to bring together the intellectual, the aesthetic, and the emotional in a way that both honours the past and acknowledges the present.”
