Takin' Care of Kitties and Such

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Came home smelling like cats yesterday morning after volunteering at a branch of a local cat & dog rescue. Never seems to excite Eddie & Wussy at all. Has to be dogs, bunnies, or horses. They don’t give cats the time of day. They love bunnies, they love horses. Eddie, a Pug, loves BBW dogs. Wussy, the Shihtoodle, has a ton of little girlfriends but anything large & he becomes a control freak. Which some big girls are fine with and some aren’t.

Last year we babysat a friend’s Great Dane pup for a few weeks. Eddie thought he’d died & gone to heaven. Wussy……..not so much. The photo is of Wussy playing traffic cop. Daisy would charge Wussy. And just as she got to him, he’d go up on his little rear legs, stick his little paw out like a traffic cop, and she’d stop on a dime.

The rescue's location is too far to walk to, so did a very early morning mall walk.

Walked over to St. Alexander’s in the evening to help make prayer blankets. Afterwards walked some further to the grocery store. Got home well after dark, pooped. No, make that exhausted. I think today I’ll be sleeping in. Well, except to shovel snow. Weatherman predicted snow & he was right on target. 6:00am & it’s beginning.

    I found your blog very interesting. Animal interactions always fascinate me and I always project probably too much into them--for example, I think that my cats are reenacting scenes from Wuthering Heights or Jane Eyre or depicting characters out of Dickens. I've been told that cats do not have an innate knowledge of Victorian literature, but I cannot quite stop believing...

    I hope that the snow is not too bad. We are supposed to have an ice storm.
