CATS ON TUESDAY
Perhaps you think that I always talk about Rosie, but she is the only still active member in my household at this time of the year.
thumb paw Arthur retired into a deep hibernation, just like a bear. He does an everyday sleeping marathon since no neighbor is in his garden and no workers in the street.
Kim has decided to finally sleep inside, apparently even for her it is now too cold outside. In a superhumanly effort Mr. Gattino has carried Kim's tent from the terrace into the living room (10 steps) to take down the tent and put it away for the winter. Since two days it stands there (he first has to recover from this effort) and of course Kim moved in again. (Here watched by Arthur, Rosie and Pookie, you just can see her nose).
A few days ago, Mr. Gattino asked me why I (it's always me !) had pulled out all the toys out of the cat house. I hadn't done it, I would rather put them in.
The cat house, and the toys under the table !
It was Rosie who had done it. What a work !
one last mouse to be put away !
Rosie now 7 months old has become the perfect housewife. She always is busy to put things in order.
She even found a new place for my ballpen ! Only it was a little hard to sleep on it. Everthing now which we find at the most strangest places was ranged by Rosie. Socks, underwear, even a clothes pin, which she must have found in the basement.
She also thinks that Arthur doesn't take enough care of himself and his white fur. Therefore she washes him for hours.
After a while Arthur gets fat up and gives her a slap with his paw. This doesn't impress Rosie at all. She jumps on him and energetically pulls him down and continues her washing until she decides that he is now clean enough.
She also is a very picky cat. She has never broken anything. She only scratches on the scratch post or on a doormat and has never touched anything else.
On top of that she is as punctual as a train. She eats whenever I get up (i.e. Lisa makes me get up) but her real breakfast she wants to be served at 9 am ! Until 11 she plays or put things in order. At 1pm she stands at her food bowl. After that, you don't find her anywhere but in her basket until about 3 pm.
She takes her "tea" and plays and ranges again. When she gets tired she would nap with the others in other places. In the evening she watches TV with us and plays. At around 10pm she gets nervous it's time to go to bed. If she could she would put me to bed. When I am too late and still busy she shows me that she is not happy at all. When finally I am in my bed she comes and snuggles against me to kiss me good night by washing my nose. But when she starts to wash my whole face, I have to stop her because she has a quite wet little tongue, so I put my hand on my face. Then she would settle down with her little head just besides mine. She has never disturbed me during night either.
She usually goes out twice a day now. Once in the morning once in the evening. I know it because when she comes back she jumps on my desk (never on the keyboard !) to kiss me as if she hadn't seen me for 20 years and because her fur smells so good of fresh air.
Honnestly I have never had or heard about such a model cat. She also is the only one who always takes her daily naps in her basket. The others nap everywhere.
