Waiting for the Weekend

The cats and I are both looking forward to the weekend for opposite reasons.  They like the idea of being able to go out, and I like the idea of not having to go out, especially with this cold I have.

Julie, of course, likes going outside the best of all.

Calla pulled a trick on all of us this morning.  We were all upstairs, and she suddenly piped up with a series of loud cries from downstairs.   Sometimes when this happens, the cats at least seem to know what the issue is even if I am clueless.

I remember an incident from last year when Calla saw a bird outside and then lost track of it and called out to the others and they started looking for it in the other upstairs rooms even though they had not seen the bird themselves.

This time, though they were as mystified as I was.  The three of us were peering down at her from the overlook wondering what got into her, but she wasn’t telling.

It is getting close to trim time for Gus.  I’m not sure if it will happen this weekend, but it might.  From last time, it seems that it would be better to trim before he mats rather than wait too long.

  1. You know, Star will do that loud continuous meowing and I never know what’s up.. She did it when she was an only cat, so I know she wasnt telling anyone to look for something. Unless she thought I could find it… she does stop when I call back to her and sometimes she’ll come running to me.
    Inexplicable cat behavior..

      That kind of ‘calling’ behavior isn’t uncommon, especially in older cats. Either they want you to ‘check in’ or have actually lost track of where everyone is

      My ‘caller’ always used to feel better if I answered. I don’t recall other cats reacting to calling like the boys did to her this time, though.

    Look at that lovely open paw!
    Gotta say, tabbies sneak up on you with their elegance.
