She loves “holding hands” and needs some cuddle time before she’ll fall asleep and I can gently transfer her into my recliner and get back to work.
Moi with Sora the Cat, back in Nov. 2020.
It took months to earn her trust after we “rescued” her from the BCSPCA in 2019.
Here you can see her well down the road to blossoming into the cuddle bug she is today.
Got a Throwback Thursday tonight.
My beloved Murko the Cat, circa early 1970s.
Recently found a few home-developed and enlarged-in-a-bathroom darkroom black & whites in a trunk in the garage. (Most of my early photos were destroyed in a basement flood in the early 1980s . . . .)
Murko and I were bonded.
When I went into hospital for scoliosis surgery in my early teens and was away from home for over a month, my parents said he lost half his body weight in depression.
Never tell me cats show no love, eh?
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays. . .
We intend to emulate Sora the Cat for the next few lazy days
Yumi suspended a few of her crafty decorations from the living room fixture, causing Sora the Cat to stare in amazement, and even yowl.
You never know what will trigger the kitty .
A few of these hung over the dining room table for months without any such response. . .
But that takes a lot of play and interaction.
I think one of the most wonderful sounds is when Sora the Cat comes to bed and cuddles after her 5:00 am breakfast. She waits for me to lift a corner of the comforter, and then she slides in and curls up in the crook of my arm.
A bit of sibling rivalry going on this evening. I was looking for Sora the Cat and found her under Midori the Turtle’s UV/heat lamp.
Our late Choco the Cat was also known to indulge in Dori’s lamp when the days got short and cold.
Earlier today I came across Sora the Cat occupying my office chair.
You want to work, Daddy? You’ll have to deal with my super-cuteness first. . . : – )
