Today was a kind of slow day and only Julie came down to hang out with me and my headache in the afternoon. Julius was very helpful in pressing down the clean laundry under the orange blanket.
Something funny and maybe a bit sad happened last night. I was reading blogs and clicked on the video from this post from a blog I had not run into before.
The video has a very loud little kitten in it, and after a moment Calpurnia came up and was obviously trying to find the kitten. She triangulated to the speaker pretty closely, then figured she must be mistaken and went hunting further on for the kitten.
I got her and played it again with her right in front and she again homed in on my round tennis ball sized speakers and even put her nose right up to it, but there was no kitten. I then stopped the video and she gave up looking. It made me wonder if she had been a momma cat before I adopted her, or maybe was around a lot of kittens for a time? Or is it just instincts?
Julius never gives these things any credence, and only when Calla started hunting around did he show any interest, and then it was probably wondering what she was up to.
I guess that is the down side of adopting an adult cat – you don’t know the history enough to know what will affect them.
Oops – forgot to mention that I added a new header picture. This one features Julius.
