Wasabi and I went out for an evening walk and came face to face with co-op cat Otis, giant, orange, eyes glowing, basically looking like a demon from Hell. He meowed and sniffed Wasabi, interested but not aggressive but also like 3 times her size, and she made a plaintive mew like "can I go now?" and turned tail and ran to the door. Aw, poor kitty. We'll try again later. #cats #catsofmastodon #mastocats
After getting her breakfast of wet food, Wasabi sits in front of the closet and meows plaintively until I lift her up to the top shelf. A stack of storage boxes means she can climb up even higher into a shadowy eyrie.
She will not permit herself to be carried down. She yowls in frustration as she works up the courage to jump from the top shelf onto the bed.
In honour of #NationalCatDay let's all re-read 18th poet Christopher Smart's ode to his cat Jeoffry https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/45173/jubilate-agno
"For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry.
For he is the servant of the Living God duly and daily serving him.
For at the first glance of the glory of God in the East he worships in his way.
For this is done by wreathing his body seven times round with elegant quickness..."
For #InternationalCatDay here is Buffy bothering me in various places
