Violet definitely has her favorite spots in the house to sleep. One of them is the basket that we made into a little cat bed. It sits in the guest room (now unofficially called Violet’s room since she is the one who spends the most time in there) under the window.
She also loves to sleep in the office up on the top floor, usually in the little cat hammock but not always. Lately she likes to sleep under the desk when I am sitting there at the computer working.
Yesterday when Kelly was up here practicing her music Violet also came up here to sit with her and listen.
We really lucked out to get a little kitty with such a sweet disposition.
I miss him. I miss my little buddy, and how he used to greet me every day when I come home from work. Thumbelina still does, of course, but it’s not the same as when the pair of them would get each other all worked up and excited over things like that.
Although Kelly has been to the UK before, I have myself never been there. So I have no idea what I would actually make of anyplace in the UK, frankly. Certainly there is a lot of interesting history to see all over the place.
Still, I think I would like to see Yorkshire. It strikes me as a very interesting place, for a variety of reasons.
One of the things we always say about my cat Scratch is that since he grew up with a dachshund, and since he spends so much time with the dogs, he wants to be a dog. He has always wanted to go outside with the dogs whenever they go out to do their business. And he tends to curl up with them to nap from time to time, especially when the weather is cold.
Well, it turns out he also likes to burrow into the blankets, just like the dachshunds do. And I managed to snap a few pictures for once.
I bet you are thinking I am going to talk about dachshunds in the snow and such. Well, you don’t know much about our dachshunds, then. When it’s ridiculously cold outside, like it is now, just getting the dogs out to do their business can be a trial, especially if precipitation is in progress. So most of their winter activities consist of a) trying to stay warm, b) trying to get more food than they are normally allowed, and c) sleeping. Frequently a) and c) are combined.
