A Moment of Harmony

GC and BC enjoy a moment of harmony

GC and BC enjoy a moment of harmony

Life has been hectic-busy lately. I took off for another vacation in Arizona to visit my son and celebrate Rosh Hashanah. When I got back, work exploded. *grin* That’s always a fun thing because I love being busy and challenged. It does mean, however, that there isn’t much time to curate vacation photos or write posts. My husband took care of the kitties while I was gone but now they are all over me all the time. Sometimes there can be too much of a good thing. Here you see a moment of harmony. Don’t let it fool you – they are waiting for me to go back and sit down so they can stake out their claim on my lap.

I’m Adorable, Too

Siri 1

It was pointed out to me that I was NOT giving equal time to all my kitties. GC informed me that she needed more lap time AND she felt that she was not equally represented on my blog. We had a long discussion about this as she sat on my lap and allowed me to make amends by petting her and rubbing her ears. Yes, GC is VERY adorable and cuddly and agreeable. Like the other 2, a tad pushy at times, but she would probably claim that it was not being pushy, but merely claiming what is hers by right. 🙂

Reassembling Your Cat

We all know that cats are very good at relaxing. Sometimes, however, your cat may relax so much that it appears boneless and it may have trouble getting itself back to a more standard appearance. At such times, you may need to offer a little assistance.

When your cat has relaxed too far, you need to push all of the stray parts together gently, combing them in a pile until they begin to cohere. This may take ahwile as the individual hairs can be quite resistant to rejoining the gestalt. Be patient, gentle and persevere. It MAY take hours.

Congratulations! You have reassembled your cat!! BUT you are not done yet. You must assure that the reassembled cat is in proper alignment. Adjust the cat until it is at the proper angle. Remember to be gentle and patient as you do not want the newly reassembled cat to fragment.

Once the cat has been aligned properly, allow it to rest undisturbed. This allows the recombination to strengthen and increases the likelihood that the cat will maintain its standard appearance. If you have any stray pieces left over after you have reassembled the cat, you may remove them once the cat has left the work area of its own volition. A newly recombined cat may decide to discard some hairs or whiskers as it settles into its new condition.

Don’t come any closer. It’s a trap. I know it is. I’m ready to run.

The White Cat Demands Attention

wc 1

She says: “hey, I’m too cute for words, too!!!” Even if she often scowls and complains. When she’s in my lap being brushed, she has a very happy face. But other times she is in contention for grumpy face of the year. 🙂 But we LOVE our white kitty!!! (Even if she does shed all over the red couch.)

We Are Easily Entertained

Both of us are easily entertained. And one of is absolutely adorable and knows it. GC was too sophisticated and experienced to be interested in a paper bag. She is a cardboard box connoisseur. 🙂
