I’ve been sitting at the computer waiting for even one kitty to do something cute, amusing, unique or naughty. No such luck. I thought I was going to have the opportunity to report on the Winter Kitty Olympics, but that’s not going to happen either.
Early this morning we had a beautiful, large-flaked snowfall. Snow had been forecast west of us. We were on the outer edge of that area so I didn’t expect to get anything. The snow was short-lived and didn’t hang around so no Olympic report for now.
The bums are mostly lying around and napping on the heated kitchen floor. Lisbeth has been taking a bath. She is a slurper and very loud. I find this particularly annoying. My parent’s dog, Dino, was the same way, and he drove me crazy. A couple of our other pusses are noisy, but I can usually tune them out. Lisbeth was about four feet away and the kitchen was otherwise quiet, not even any snoring, so she was impossible to ignore. Agh!
I hope this current listlessness isn’t a foretelling of their future winter inactivity. We will be bored out of our minds by spring, and I won’t have anything to write about.
While waiting, I have been working on a 400-piece, computer-generated, jigsaw puzzle of Lisbeth. I created it from the photo of her published on Christmas Day.
In Lisbeth’s and Calista’s defense, they had a hard workout early this morning chasing each other back and forth across the bed while we and the other kitties tried to sleep. Without this early burst of energy we probably never would have seen the snow.
The others have done nothing to warrant such behavior. But they are cats after all, and I shouldn’t expect much more!
