Preparing for Grace

Posted on

Grace is coming to stay with me for a few days as CCL has to tend to some things.   Grace is the cat formerly known as “Cher.”  You may recall from an earlier post ( Sonny Gets Adopted-https://catsandallthat.com/2018/05/19/sonny-gets-adopted/  ) .  She is a rescue Tabby who had been abused and overfed.  She is now a  healthier, happier, delightful member of the CCL household.

Grace will, of course, eat special food during her stay in Washington, D.C. (CCL is picky) and have her water served courtesy of a filtered system (don’t want her drinking DC water).  Special playthings and cushions are being set up.

Not sure if she will attack my vinyl blinds ( previous sets famously demolished by Roxie, Koko and Jean Claude in the past) but we will see.

I do know that by her namesake she will bring peace and certainty of spirit.  She is also full of love.

Why Cats Are Cool All Year Round

Summer is, of course, hot and humid as always in Washington, D.C.   Cats, however, are always cool.

Cats & All That ™

Roxie and Jean Claude, while primarily housecats, enjoy the outdoors. Well, Roxie not so much , although she likes sitting on the back porch steps or peering out the open windows to check out what’s going on. She will on ocassion come to supervise my work in the garden or to let “Rocky” the urban squirrel know that he is not to climb the huge pine tree in my backyard.

In Search of Kindness

Posted on

It’s been several months since Koko, a domestic shorthair,  decided to take off from CCL’s house for parts unknown.   I still think of her and her kindness and affection.  (so much for cats not being affectionate).

Now CCL has Grace, a tabby, a foster that we are both considering for adoption.  It is clear that Grace was once abused tortured and overfed.  She has because of the kindness of CCL become affectionate, playful and healthy.  Kindness heals.  I like to think that Koko is spreading her special brand of it to another family.

 

 

Sonny Gets Adopted

Posted on

Sonny, the cute cuddly Kitten, is an orphan no more.  He has been adopted.  I liked Sonny, the one-time I met him while visiting CCL he was lively, playful and affectionate.  The problem was Sonny seemed to terrorize Cher.  CCL resolved the matter by taking Sonny to the Cat Cafe where of course he was an instant hit.   Someone came to the cafe and decided Sonny should come live at their house.   I hope they enjoy him as much as I did.
