A philosophicat (n.) is a philosophical cat (n.)

philosophical cat
what are you looking at?

I am looking at a hat,
replies the philosophical cat,
floating down the river,

I am thinking of chicken liver
and Schrödinger.
I am thinking of my brothers

and sisters
pictured on posters in Clapham
Common London Underground Station

and cats on the intenet.
Why are there so many cats online?
the philosophical cat wonders

staring into the river
Perhaps looking for fish
or anything to eat.

knows the meaning of life
but we do not speak Catanese.

When Philosophicat
looks back at us
it makes us buckle at the knees.
