CATS ON TUESDAY
This post is dedicated to Arthur's 10th birthday !
In June 2002, Mr. G. and I went to an animal shelter to choose a white cat. Mr. G. had dreamt of a white cat since his childhood, and as our Max went to the rainbow bridge 6 months before, we though it's time to fullfil his dream.
and so Arthur arrived in our home. The vet put as his birthday the 3rd of April which is also the Saint's day of Mr. G. which is very much celebrated in Italy, even more than birthdays. I have my doubts about his Sanctity, but that is another story.
So today we celebrate Arthur's 10th birthday ! When he arrived he wasn't bigger than the remote control and quickly showed that he was a quiet special and intelligent cat.
He makes us laugh with his funny sleeping poses
He is a perfect model for my photo themes, especially when he sleeps then you can do anything with him. Even move him around while I make the bed.
Of course he also is a real cat with the corresponding instincts and unfortunately sometimes a poor bird or a mouse is murdered.
Arthur has a lot of activities besides sleeping ! He likes to watch water drops in the sink, stealing food from Mr. G's plate, squatting our toilet when we need to go, climbing in all cars when a door is open. My neighbors always check, as once he had slept on the back seat and meauwed when the car started to move. Poor neighbor almost got a heart attack. He also loves to take a sunbath and then collapses besides my bed for a little grooming.
He also is very playful, attacks the broom, doesn't fear the vacuum cleaner at all, chases Rosie around, watches the neighborhood, and sometimes also TV. It depends on what is on the program.
He loves watching golf (he is the only one in the family) and each time the ball falls in a hole he looks under the TV for it. For having fun we don't need a TV, we have our private entertainer : Arthur !
During the 10 years the remote control has shrinked. Now Arthur is bigger !
