Afternoon Random Ramble

Nice weather today. Sunny, clear skies with some fluffy white clouds, a cool breeze setting the trees in motion ... that's the stuff. My favorite kind of weather, actually, is colder. Either cloudy or clear -- but not raining -- with a nice calm wind, and cool enough temperature to warrant some clothes layering and maybe even a pair of gloves. I think that's my favorite kind of weather because it reminds me of Scotland. I wonder if everyone has favorite kinds of weather. Some people probably couldn't care less.

I'm feeling much better this morning. Still not planning on auditioning for the local production of Oklahoma! (if there were such a thing), but certainly feeling better than yesterday. I think perhaps eating helped. Funny, that.

This morning I was watching a television show called Animal Precinct, and Cobweb (our Smart Cat) was watching it with me. She particularly loves shows about dogs, for some reason. She just sits about 12 inches from the television and stares with great fascination. She seemed quite disappointed when the show was over and I turned off the tv. Perhaps I should have just played the show again for her when I left the room. Life as an indoor cat has to be pretty boring sometimes, when both your people are too busy to pet you and play with you. No wonder she goes and attacks her sister so often.

We're considering getting a third cat: a kitten. Cobweb and Munchkin are getting to be fat, lazy old women, and so we figure a kitten might help them stay a bit more spry. Given the fact that I, too, am getting to be a fat, lazy old woman, the kitten might get me racing around the house, as well. Shannon thinks this is likely, because I will be running after the kitten, crying, "Don't break that! Don't climb that! No! Don't scratch that!" Yeah, probably. It's so difficult for control freaks to parent kittens ... I know from experience.

Hee! I'm thinking of getting a second kitten for Ollie because we do spend all our time chasing him and yelping, "No biting!" A playmate might alleviate our scratched up legs. But first, Mr. Dreago has to get a job. I think Ollie watches t.v...or at least he looks over at what we are staring at so intently. Glad you feel better! Send some of that cooler air over here!

I'd love to have kittens, too! I thought we were going to this year, because one of our wild cats was pregnant (my favorite one). But the kittens never showed up, so either she moved them to another farm, or they didn't make it.

It's funny that your cat likes to watch dogs on TV. I had a cat one time that was in my room when "Been Caught Stealing" played on the radio. You know, the beginning part, where the dogs bark? He lept straight up, and then, noticing he didn't seem to be in any immediate danger, started prowling around the room, hunting for the dog that must be hiding somewhere there.

Glad you're feeling better!

My cats once had a similar reaction when I was watching a documentary on cat social behavior, and one section was about how and why cats fight with each other. So these cats on the tv are making all the growling noises that signify imminent attack ... and my two cats are completely freaking out. They kept racing in a panic past the television in various directions, looking for these strange menacing cats. Eventually, they traced the sound to the television, but they didn't calm down until that part of the show was over. Heh. I must admit it was quite entertaining.
