I took this picture and then howled seeing the red spots on Lucy’s tail. But in fact they are the pads of The Pumpkin’s feet.
Turns out Lucy loves watching television and chasing the computer mouse across the screen. The Pumpkin is still exploring, but spends a lot of time in front of the window watching the crows. Both are the happiest cats I’ve ever known. They purr if you merely look at them, and they’ve both become lap cats, pushing each other away from the center of my chest.
The funniest event so far was when I was taking a shower last night, I had soap all over my face and I heard a “mew.” I rinsed my face quickly to see The Pumpkin in the shower with me, not minding at all the spray of water. I gently lifted him out with my foot (it’s a shower stall, not a tub) only to see him hop right back in. I finished my shower and then dried us both off with me laughing, him purring, and Lucy looking on.
I promise you I will stop with these daily “catlogs,” but for the next couple of days, please bear with me while I adjust to the joy of this.
