CATS ON TUESDAY
Two days after the last "Cats on Tuesday" we still had summer, it was sunny and warm
and Kim took sunbathes on Mr. G's bed.
Arthur overlooked his kingdom on the garden shed in the sun
Or he waited for people who walked by so that they could admire him, or nagging dogs for which he jumps on the little wall besides the entrance, where they cannot reach him, and then he does his grooming. Dog owners are pulled on our gravel like if they were doing water ski.
And then from one day to the other autumn moved in with rain and winter temperatures.
Arthur the philosopher adapted his lifestyle immediately. He slept the whole day near every radiator.
Rosie hadn't tidied up her mousies since a very long time. With the cold and rainy weather she rediscovered her housewife skills and started to put her mousies around the food bowls again. She probably had done a summer break.
I had realized that our bathroom door frame was dirty on the bottom. Now I know why, Pookie when she waits for Mr. G. rubs her mouth against the door frame ! She does it against a little grey shelf too and I had to clean the dirty spots. Her back end doesn't get better and she can't jump anymore. With the help of her front leg claws she lifts herself on the bed, sofas and armchairs. As she doesn't seem to suffer at all, because she plays like a young cat and eats like a horse I am still hesitating to take her to the vet. But I will do so when I am back from my holidays at the French Riviera. I am leaving on Sunday.
