“The cat came back, the very next day, the cat came back…I thought he was a gonner, but the cat came back – he just couldn’t stay away!”
That song fits our life right now. We’ve been adopted, by this demonic and bitchy looking cat.
At first I thought, that even though it wasn’t very cute, it might be kinda nice to have a cat around. But not anymore. It’s disconcerting the way he follows me around the house and peers in which ever window I’m closest too – clinging to 3″ wide window ledges if he has to. Last night I even saw his eyes peering at me in the dark when I came back down for something and was walking through the dark kitchen. He’s getting fleas (possibly imaginary, I concede) on my outdoor couch cushions. His worst offense was last night when I was feeling sorry for him in the rain, so I opened the patio door to put a bowl of tuna out for him…and he just sniffed the bowl, and then took a flying leap at the open door. I screamed, and slammed the door shut – on him (by accident, truly), squishing him. He yowled as he backed out the door, and then just ran a few feet away, and came right back again. No more food for him. I nearly busted a sealed unit this morning, as I banged on the window to scare him away…he’s getting a little too gutsy for my liking!
If any of my neighbors recognize this feline, please come and get him! :P
On a more positive note, however, we are LOVING the newly painted living room. It’s so bright and fresh, and it really allows the beautiful view around us to take centre stage. I’m just in the process of trying to choose a new rug right now. I’m leaning towards the one below, but the others are so fun too:
I’ll post better pics of the room when I’ve made my choice and have the rug in place! :)
Have a great weekend, cheers!
