CATS ON TUESDAY
Spring is in the air as you can see here with Arthur and Pookie ! They suffer from severe spring fatigue.
Yesterday Gianni, an (of course) italian friend of Mr. Gattino came visiting us, to the great pleasure of Arthur. He loves guests. He immediately interrupted his spring nap and came over to sniff at Gianni's feet. He always has wonderful Italian leather shoes which of course smell also very good. Arthur likes to smell leather. He settled down on these nice smelling shoes and looked around. Poor Gianni was slightly worried that Arthur would scratch them.
But he decided then for something to play and found finally one of his varous mice , a white one of course, because white suits very well his fur. He also has black mice but he prefers whites, he is an optimistic cat.
When he had found it he brought it over and layed the mouse to Gianni's feet.
Gianni threw it at him, that's of course what Arthur had expected. With one paw like a basketball player he catched the mouse and made his "cute cat show".
Meanwhile Gianni had told us that he had had a terrible accident the evening before and it was a wonder that now he could sit here and watch Arthur. As he still felt a little dizzy, Mr. Gattino thought he should take Gianni's blood pressure.
Arthur was first a little offended, but then he thought that he should look cute, so that all of us wouldn't look at that strange thing anymore, but at him.
and this is the result of his efforts !
