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.

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.

The Art of Connection

Posted on

I paid a visit to my daughter who now lives in Philadelphia.  For those who read this blog on a regular basis, you know that Koko and Jean Claude have moved on.  Crazy Cat Lady (CCL)  is now fostering two cats,  Sonny and Cher.  Apparently, the cats reflect the reported later stage of their namesakes’ relationship in that the cats are in conflict at times.  Still, within an hour of my visit Cher, a chubby, striped Tabby and Sonny, a frisky black Bombay, were all over me.  Cher, measured and reserved, settled for just laying across my chest, while Sonny wanted, demanded constant play.

Humans are like that in that we require varying degrees of attention and connection.  We also require validation.  something cats as a species don’t seem to need.  I have found there is an art to the ability to connect and understand.  I wonder if it can be taught but I know that it’s important to find points of commonality when dealing with humans and with cats.
