I had a Milda memory just now. We used to use the words "Persian kitten" to describe that moment when you feel like there's something you should be doing but have no idea at all what it is. Something like "at a loose end".

Since the mid 1970s there had been a commercial for toilet paper (https://youtu.be/V-rX6RpDT0U) on TV featuring fluffy white Persian kittens playing with toilet paper (meant to make you think warm, soft, and fluffy - not bitey with claws). One day M just plopped down on the bed and pawed their air and said "I feel like a Persian kitten with no toilet paper".

Crow and the Birds
 
When the eagle soared clear through a dawn distilling of emerald
When the curlew trawled in seadusk through a chime of wineglasses
When the swallow swooped through a woman's song in a cavern
And the swift flicked through the breath of a violet
 
When the owl sailed clear of tomorrow's conscience
And the sparrow preened himself of yesterday's promise
And the heron laboured clear of the Bessemer upglare
And the bluetit zipped clear of lace panties
And the woodpecker drummed clear of the rotovator and the rose-farm
And the peewit tumbled clear of the laundromat
 
While the bullfinch plumped in the apple bud
And the goldfinch bulbed in the sun
And the wryneck crooked in the moon
And the dipper peered from the dewball
 
Crow spraddled head-down in the beach-garbage, guzzling a dropped ice-cream.
 
Ted Hughes, 1971
