Koko, the domestic shorthair, has been spending time with me here in Brookland, Washington, D.C. She is, because of the increased traffic in my burgeoning neighborhood, a house cat. Still, she finds windows and viewing and squeaky mouse toys to her liking.
She does some television viewing, “The Defenders,” and while she is not a regular watcher of “Game of Thrones,” she is every bit a queen. Her favorite perch it would seem is on my lap while I sit at my desk. She is curious about everything. – the contractors, mail delivery, traffic and birds that perch on my windows.
This is too cool for school. Still trying to teach Koko to “High Five.”
