Caturday: Gertrude, the Angel

Gertrude’s Request

The other day, as I was sorting through some real pictures, you know the ones we took before digital cameras, I came across this 2005 of Gertrude and me. She loved to pester me whenever I was eating or reading or basically doing anything. Noel reminds me a great deal of Gertrude. Gerty left us in 2007. It’s funny how some of them burn a bigger hole in your heart.  Maybe it’s time for a long-haired calico again?

Caturday: Willkommen!

Mini Cooper and Nine caught a moment of quiet by the front door while the dogs were busy upstairs.

They love to watch the world go by. Don’t you?

Caturday: Rollin’

 

Noel, the Christmas Cat here – At about 4 PM every afternoon I have to roll at the top of the stairs for about 10 minutes. It is my ritual. Mommy is not sure why I do it, but I have been doing it about the same time everyday for years. Sometimes, I do it again later in the night, but late afternoon is my favorite time to roll. Do you roll?

Caturday: Nine’s New Spot

 

Nine discovered Louise’s night-time bed in Mom’s bedroom. He has decided that it is a wonderful place to get away from everyone else and take a nap. The other night however, when Louise was ready for bed, she did not know what to do because he was in her night-night spot. She never rousts a cat from any of her beds, so she went into the living room and laid down there instead of with Mommy.

Caturday: Dynamics

I remember back when Mini Cooper would snuggle close to Nine no matter where he was. These days, this is as close as they get, and I was surprised to even find them sleeping near each other. It is interesting how as the cats have aged the dynamic has changed considerably. Mostly I find Mini with Noel on the bed. Nine tends to keep to himself, though they both are picking on poor Noel more and more. The other night Nine and Noel had a knockdown, drag-out, catfight at snack time. I am not liking this dynamic one bit.

Caturday: Noel, The Mouser

Noel’s favorite toys are these little yellow chicks. They live in the herb window (where she spends most of her time). After breakfast, which she of course eats in the herb window, I usually go into my office down the hall from the kitchen, to start my day. In about 10 or 15 minutes I will hear her calling me, insistently – “Come now, you must see this, come come come.” She usually carries one of the chicks, as if it was a mouse prize, from the herb window to somewhere else on the kitchen counter or the kitchen table. She wants me to come and see her prize. Seriously, this goes on almost every morning. Then I pick up her chick, pat her on the head, tell her what a wonderful mouser she is, and throw it back in the herb window.

I want to come back as Noel.

Caturday: So Much Has Happened

We know that it has been many many weeks since Mom has posted any news from the Zoo. But, she thinks that it is time to start up again since the big dogs came back from vacation yesterday and she is sitting more at the computer again.

It was so nice not having the big dogs around, barking, and chasing, and doing all those dog things. Charles, the little dog, was still here during Mom’s recovery (which is still going on) and he has started to act like a real bossy boss, so we are hoping that the big dogs put him back in his little dog place and that he stops trying to manage us.

We mostly had Mom, and her bed, all to ourselves. Now that the big dogs are back we hope that doesn’t change because we really enjoy the comfy comforter, and nibbling on Mom’s hair while she sleeps.

Mom has a lot of stories to tell about things that have happened at the zoo over the last several weeks, but, just like her recovery from back surgery, they will take time. We are glad that we can be of service keeping her amused, cuddled, and always well-loved.
