That summer fur coat

Phew! I am not a summer person. Neither are the cats, I think.

On several occasions this month, I found either one of them in a stretched out melting pose. I feel bad for them with their fur coats and all. I would not go as far as to shave them though. Give them a bath? The boy might be an easy wrestle but that tabby will put up a fight, tooth and claw.

When the whiny boy wakes me up for breakfast duty, I try to appreciate the experience by observing, admiring the pink and gold haze of the morning light.

After doing my glamorous domestic duties, I like to cool off and rest my feet. Sometimes Snuggles beats me to it on my favorite spot.

Sometimes, he will join me as I catch up on watching Star Trek Deep Space Nine on Netflix. He’s such a nerd ;-^

Sometimes, Geneva will join me too.

Snugs often keeps me company in front of another screen as I reach into the ether, connect with family and friends and try to get in some creative writing.

Thanks for dropping by. If you’re looking for some bittersweet, Canadian fiction check out The Year of the Rabbit.

Thanks also for not disturbing the Tabby.  That other guy?  Well…

    Nice fun blog, love your writing desk. When are we going to see another book to follow The Year of the Rabbit?

      Hi, Susan. Well, the Year of the Rabbit is the kind of story that should not have a sequel. I was toying with a bittersweet romance or a 35 year saga about first love, loss and cautionary tales between. I’m tired out so may just entertain myself and others with cat comics for a while.

  2. I loved the pics. Aren’t cats great. I had ONE cat in my life and oh how I loved him. Now we have a black lab, Cody, whom I love as well. but waking up mornings with a cat paw touching your face with the gentlest touch imaginable is something I’ll never forget.

      Thanks 🙂 Yeah, cats are great but not before 5:30 a.m. with constant whining and complaining. I’d be worried about this old boy tapping my face with his paw, esp. after his morning visit to the litter box 😁
