There is something wonderful and inevitable about the fall season. It is the start of trees losing their leaves and revealing their true colors, cooler temperatures, fall fashion and for most of us, a return to school and more intense work – budgets, hiring decisions. It is also the start of many new and exciting things as we enter into the holiday season. Somehow for me, and it appears for Grace the cat, the fall brings a sense of peace and of purpose.

CCL is on the move again. This time to Florida. For a time it means I will have Grace, the overweight but lovable Tabby that CCL adopted.

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

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.
