Getting Ready for Christmas

Posted on

Grace is an interesting cat.  She does not like traditional “pet” toys.  I am still trying to figure out what to get her for Christmas.  In the meantime, I guess I will let her rest under the Christmas tree.

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.

 

 

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.

This is too cool for school.   Still trying to teach Koko to “High Five.”

 

 

 

Your Space: Paws Make the Difference

Posted on


Although she still comes to  Brookland, DC periodically for a visit, Koko spends most of her time now at  her Philadephia residence with CCL.  The Philly townhouse does not provide much in terms of yard space but it does have a spacious basement where Koko seems quite content. After more cement was added,  Koko  put her own decorating touches on the floor of the basement in CCL’s  house.  HGTV take note!
