I feel much better today, thank you. Out of six people at lunch, four of us got sick. I think the shrimp was to blame.
My boys used to stage wars with my “unbreakable” wooden ornaments. (They were mostly shaped like toy soldiers.) I would come home to a head in the living room, bodies in the kitchen, legs in the bedroom – and two “innocent” kittens looking at me like they had no idea what could’ve happened.
Oh! And I got a “kiss” on the wrist from my girl when I gave her breakfast on Friday. (Pressed her nose to my wrist for a second before pulling back.) She hasn’t hissed at me in a few days, either. Usually she gets startled and hisses at least once a day.
My girl is trying to be more brave. I stayed home from work tonight (mild food poisoning) and most of the kitties are in my lap at the moment. Skywalker actually came up and put her paws on my knee like she was considering jumping up, too. She changed her mind, but she did start to make an attempt. She also ran up and hid behind my legs Saturday night when Martie went a little bit overboard while playing chase. (He"s used to playing with the bigger cats & forgets how small/delicate his sisters and Samson are.) Again, these seem like little things, but they represent huge progress for Skywalker.
OT – Skywalker
“Shatterproof?” Wishful thinking, Woman! (I speak from experience, sadly.) A determined kitty will find a way.
I am so sorry. You and the boys are in my prayers. I’m sure Cindy will be watching over you – and finding ways to let you know that she’s near.
The longer this arc goes, the more these two remind me of Pru and Dee. Pru may have been blind, but she bounced from thing to thing all around the house as soon as she came out of the bathroom. You could practically hear her asking this question, too. Like Iggy, Dee was content to follow along and check out whatever she had found.
Only took her four years lol I’ll take progress whenever I can get it, though. I always try not to rush them
Momma had a dog named Mischief. (Her boxer girl had a rendezvous with the saint Bernard who lived behind them & Mischief was the result.) She wasn’t going to name him, because she wasn’t going to keep him, so she just gave him a “temporary” nickname because he was into everything. Unfortunately, according to Daddy, Momma was literally the only person in the world that he liked, so she ended up keeping him, and he had to keep the name for the rest of his life.
