Between the loss of our cat Freckles on Monday and the outrageous news we face day after day, my reading slump continues. I'm reading, but very slowly as I'm easily distracted it seems. It's just easier to play Words with Friends or Yahtzee on my phone while watching the baseball playoffs, comedy shows and occasional news. I do have so many books that I want to read, so I'm hopeful I snap out of this slump.
Back in early 2008, we were a 5 - cat family but now we are down to just 1 cat.
Buddy is 15 years old now and is pretty spry for his age. Every day we can count on him practicing his jumping skills, making it half way up the door jamb or higher. Although he's always just tolerated the other cats, preferring my lap any chance he got, he seems lost this past week. His appetite has increased (he needed to gain a few pounds after losing a few over the last few years. I feel sad though as he sometimes cries out like he's missing Freckles or isn't sure what has happened. He's more of a lap cat and had even slept between our pillows briefly a few times this week. I'm enjoying it while I can, as we all know -- life is short.
We almost brought home this little guy this week --
BUT, we decided that now was not the time to introduce a kitten to a 15 y/o cat who was never overly fond of other cats. We gave a donation to the shelter instead and, decided that when Buddy is gone we'll either adopt 2 - kittens or a senior cat instead.
Hope everyone has had a good week and that next week is even better.
