I'm so jealous, we never did raiding and pillaging tho.
Gordy every girl should have her own knives! Did you per chance remember to get her a sweet sharpening stone and honing oil? Or is that "for
Sheye we totally share a taste in music, at least so far....
Nightstar feel better soonest!
I've heard when Elves sneeze the glitter just goes EVERYWHERE!
It's cold and rainy here today, BUT! but I got the best "gift" ever!
Stray Black Kitty has popped herself up into the very warm and fuzzy blanket that was meant for the living room and is SLEEPING ON THE PORCH!!!!!
OMG!! running around in circles like I have my hair on fire!!!
She's HERE!!! She STAYED!!!!
This has been an ongoing 6 year slow speed drama with her. She shows up, she eats she leaves. She won't even eat until she hears the deadbolt snick on
the door. In the past month she's been not running away when I get her food, but dancing or "twirling" as I call it while I "make her plate"
Warmed canned food with cat treats artfully sprinkles around cause yeah....the foods great at this restaurant but the service sucks!
She is completely feral but it's only been this year she greets me when I come home from work, no petting, just hello's and the impatient tapping of
her tiny little paw of doom.
She usually eats and runs, or eats bathes and runs. None of this hanging out business. Last year I hadn't seen her but one day I came home to her
sitting out front and up on the porch was a dead bird. "We trade for the food" was implied.
So that's the deal huh? You don't like me much, but decided to do a deal? I can live with that, I guess...
Before the screaming starts she hasn't bagged anymore birds. She's a good girl and has been busily mousing in my side yard. I strongly disapprove of
bagging the birdies.
Anyway two weeks ago (slow speed saga, I have mentioned this) I was "plating" her dinner and she noticed the tub-o-treats and was dancing and
squeeking, so I got brave and took a few and laid them down as a "starter" for her.
OMG!!!! SHE PATTED MY HAND!!!
With her little wild paw!!! No claws!!!
I was shocked, SHE was shocked!!
So I froze and went back to the normal routine since this was already past awkward.I was grinning and she was clearly embarrassed. Now today she is
perched in a blanket nest and has claimed the porch. IN BROAD DAYLIGHT!!! She usually disappears in the light like a little black vampire. I just.
SIX YEARS... it's taken 6 freakin years of me being nice to her. I'm happy and miffed all at the same time.
an teared up....sniff...sniff...
she's all dry and warm
