It's really pretty amazing, what two little balls of fur have done for this house. Each day when I arrive home, they both come running to the door----which I have heard is unusual for cats, but the both of them make it there before CrazyDog. They stand there and wait for me to talk to them although they act like it doesn't matter, and they both allow me to pet them, but that too, is on the run. The run, however, is not very far, as they walk a few steps and come back to rub up against my legs and wait for me to do it again. The cats and I "chat" while I do my usual end of the day routine, and they follow H and I around until we get settled for the evening. Once we are settled, they are either on our laps or very nearby, or they are running and chasing each other and putting on a show. Once in a while the larger furrier one, (the dog) , will get in the middle of it all, and it provides quite a lot of entertainment.
What is surprising to me, is H has always told me that he does not like cats. So, we have always had dogs. I used to have cats or kittens of some variety at all times. But I respected his feelings as dogs were a love of mine, too. But I have to say that for a man that doesn't like cats, he sure seems to love these. He talks to them as much as I do, I find them on the bed with him, and the other day, he cleaned the litter box! So, I don't think he knew what he was talking about too much. What he didn't like was the smell of a house with cats, and a litter box that was not well taken care of. Obviously, it does not have to be that way.
I talked with D yesterday, and she is quite happy in her new place, but missing her kittys. I can't say I blame her. I asked her if she wanted to come and get them, and she told me she didn't. I would never want her to think that I took her babies----I am well aware that they belong to her. She told me that she knows they are very happy here and she also knows they would be very lonely there, and her new apartment is very small, with little room for them to run and play like they have here. She wants to leave them here, and I breathed a sigh of relief. I know that one day she will take them, and that will be a sad day, indeed. Until then, I have cats to take care of! Later.
