Wriggle Worm Calla


There’s always a risk in hanging around too close when the daily post deadline approaches and no good ideas are coming.  Gus and Julie had made themselves scarce after I brushed Gus and made him angry, looking for knots.  No clippers this week, and no big knots either.

So I tried to get a couple of pictures of Calla upside down…easier said than done.

She’s expert at wriggling out of your grip and getting the feet back down on the ground.

They have to put up with this kind of thing every once in a while as part of the deal of living here.  They don’t have to like it, though.

  2. Yes, good thing there isn’t any audio – I’m pretty sure she’s saying something terrible about you in the last picture!

      Perhaps thinking it – she didn’t make a lot of sound, more or less grunting with the effort of wiggling out of the grasp. No claws either.

      She’s nicer than I deserve.

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Calpurnia looking so cranky. Don’t tell her I said this, but I think she’s even cuter when she’s mad!

    That is a problem I have never encountered. I look cute at all times. –Bugs

    Will you just compare the corners of Calla’s mouth — in the first pic, and then in the second. Gritting teeth, much? –Nadbugs

    Her wriggling made me smile, which I am sure is not the correct response.
