I had a real “aww..” moment with her when I was brushing her tonight. Usually she will stand on my lap while I brush her, but today when I was doing one side she laid down and tucked her head into my elbow while I brushed her.
Thirty seconds later Julius came to the back door wanting in and ruined it.
Gus moved to the same area when I was teasing Calpurnia to watch and I gave him a shot at it…but when he would lift a paw to poke at the shoestring and I tried to get a picture, he would hear the sound and put the paw down.
He was even more unrelaxed because Calpurnia was just over to the side, which always makes him cautious for no good reason. He’s that way with Julius too, even though Gus bullies him 95 percent of the time.
One final story that is only partially cat related. I get cat litter in plastic buckets and lately have been using one of them to store the used litter to go out. So Monday I set aside the bucket of used litter to go to the garbage, opened a new one to refill the litter boxes, closed it up and went about getting ready. I threw the bucket out and went to work.
Tuesday I opened up the clean bucket and found it was the dirty bucket. Somehow I got them mixed and tossed half a bucket of litter. This irks me way more than the 4 dollars it costs for some reason, because I’m still not sure where I got them switched up.
