Calpurnia is shocked that everyone wants me to chase her about getting video of her drama tail. She wants to flounce her tail contemptuously, but now she’s afraid that there is a secret camera running.
A more practical issue is the lack of light these days makes movies a problem except perhaps on weekends.
I caught Julius just as he was starting a yawn. You can see the crinkles in his nose if you look closely.
I thought I’d give an update on Gus’ foot or leg issue. He still favors it, but it seems to be getting a little better each day. It doesn’t keep him from coming downstairs each day to meet me when I come in from the car each day, and from his dinner. If I try to help him out by carrying him upstairs at night, he gets very grumpy. Cats are pretty proud, maybe especially when they are slowing down. I remember Cassie used to make it upstairs on her own, despite her being almost twenty and having lost a lot of strength in her legs a few years before.
Cassie had to learn how to walk with her back feet separated to keep her balance, but she would manage the stairs each way and would make it onto the bed each morning on her own. She, too, would rather I watch rather than help.
Calla is not entirely pleased that Julie is up on the stand next to her.
