Grumpy Cat has nothing on Koko when she’s on a mission.

My sister-girlfriend’s dog , Li’l Peanut, was a tad down recently needing more of my friend’s attention than normal. My girlfriend speculates that the dog is missing her guardian angel, my friend’s daughter, who was off to science camp. The remedy of course is that Peanut needed more attention.
We all have days like L’il Peanut. There are some simple things we can do: pray, read, pray again, call friends who are doing a little worse than we are, volunteer, watch mindless television, read a good book, take a walk but it’s probably most important to remember “This Too Shall Pass.” Spring is officially here.
Koko, the domestic short-hair and Jean Claude, the black Bombay follow their own rhythm. They have rituals that play out daily including sleeping with CCL and letting her know their preferences when it comes to what kind of food they want and where they want to go to the bathroom. Often they remind me of the song by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog – Like This and Like That and Like This…except in cat language.
Here’s the video:
Koko made pet of the week at the Brookland Bridge. My former neighbors do a fantastic blog about life in Brookland. From an objective standpoint it is truly a neighborhood blog. It talks about life, dining, development, happenings, pets, real estate. I wonder how they do it!
Check it out if you have the time. I’m sure even if you don’t live in Brookland you can find something that will spark your curiosity!
It’s been several months since Roxie passed. Still I miss her. Recently I took KoKo, the domestic shorthair, and Jean Claude, the black bombay to their new digs at CCL’s new home. Did I mention my daughter bought a new house? Any way KK and JC seem to like their new space which they gave thorough and careful inspection. Watching them it was if they seemed to approve – except for the placement of the litter box which CCL has now moved. JC immediately deemed the spot more acceptable. I miss them but I am glad they have their space. Roxie would have been pleased.
The Bentley is a luxury automobile created more than 90 years ago in England. Bentley the dog is owned by my friend Renee and her family. He clearly likes the finer things in life and he wants his meals and his water prepared just so. A gourmet for sure. Recently Bentley went to the pantry to prepare himself a snack. Renee said her daughter left the pantry door open. But we know better. Bentley has exquisite manners. He simply wasn’t able to finish his preparations before she got home.
Fall brings so much. Back to school. Cooler weather. For me it’s the most dramatic in change. Perhaps the colors or that it was always the time that as a child we went from play to work. Just as it is the first fall in six years without Roxie, now there’s Koko. Finally, finally Jean Claude seems to be warming up to the new kitten a domestic shorthair.
