Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read.
There’s something new on the Universal Love front to begin pondering: Hydrox and Shiva-the-cow-cat appear to be slouching into some sort of hanky panky. They’ve been observed lying side-by-side on Jeanne’s bed.
These cats have known one another for more than a decade and never a kind word has passed between them. Hydrox surprised me last year when he began licking the face and inside the ears of Tabby whenever she got aggressive, but Tabby was an entirely different matter. What Shiva’s always wanted was to be left strictly alone by other cats.
Until now. She’s the one jumping on the bed as the party of the second part, not the first.
Also, sometime around 2 am Christmas Eve I heard cat racing noises, sat up in bed and saw Hydrox run from Jeanne’s bedroom into the kitchen. With Shiva in hot pursuit. I shook my head and wiped my eyes in time to see Shiva race out of the kitchen closely pursued by Hydrox, back past Jeanne’s Christmas tree into her bedroom.
I’m convinced they’re teetering on the brink of a Christian Era.
And meanwhile Wavy Gravy Duff, managing editor over at Veterans Today did a wordy Christmas post bragging of his past life without being too obviously obnoxious nor untruthful. For that matter, aside from Jonas Alexis there were no Jew baiting/hating articles during the Christmas truce.
Soooooooo if we’re not teetering on the brink of a Christian era I think we’d better all start digging bomb shelters.
Oh, how I miss hearing and watching cats chasing each other around the house. Glad the time of the year seems balmy and appeasing to you. That it continues so; all the best to you in 2015 and beyond.
Hi Wesley. It’s all good. My grateful’s concentrated for the moment on still having old Hydrox hanging in there with me. Gracias, J
I think the cats are more interesting than Duff, too. Their activities have more meaning than almost his entire life, so far as I can determine from what he writes and says.
Hi Ed. The cats here are a lot more truthful than Duff, though Shiva’s an ex-US Army WWII nurse in one of her previous lifetimes and Hydrox played John Wayne in The Sands of Iwo Jima. Thanks for coming by. J
