CATS ON TUESDAY
Pookie shows the first signs of becoming an old lady physically and in her behavior too. She will be 16 this year and she can't jump anymore.
She lifts herself with the help of the claws in her front paws on the sofa
and fortunately still manages to climb in Mr. G's bed. When she walks she looks normal, but no way to jump on a chair or on the sink in the kitchen what she loved to do to drink water. She only tolerates Kim close to her and has started to hiss at Arthur which she had never done before, and of course Rosie. She also meows a lot and has become a very talkative cat ! She "speaks" all the time. And as so many old ladies do, she eats a lot but has lost weight. She isn't skinny, but not the round cozy cat anymore. According to the vet she is in good health and there is nothing to do with her hind legs. It's arthrosis.
Rosie as all cats don't know what pity is and is rather happy about this situation, she has my bed all of her own it is too high, and as you can see from her look, she has seen Pookie enter the room !
Arthur the philosophe doesn't care, he sleeps where he wants and doesn't bother about Pookie when she hisses at him.
He has a lot to do to keep his fur white, outside it's quite muddy !
As usual he terrorizes Mr. G. and yesterday when he was laying in the bath, Arthur managed to open the door wide, letting in cold air which made Mr. G. shout at me to close the door again. This happened 3 times, because Arthur doesn't want to stay long in the bathroom and meauws and scratches at the door to get out. I open the door and then the whole story starts from the beginning !
If only the rainy days would stop so that he could use his energy outside and I could stop being his doorman !
