Observing nature around you is one of the assignments for Day 10. So I thought why not observe my cat Lady, who certainly is around me most of the time. And some of the antics she performs are funny and unique, at least to me. Most cats do very similar things and then some are unique in their own ways.
Lady has been lonely since Merlin passed away in March of this year. She still goes to the door looking for him. They were great buddies and would do many things together, including cuddling up on the couch or a chair together. Lady would try to get too close to Merlin so that she was practically sitting on top of him. He would allow this for a time but then he would leave her and go somewhere to be alone. Lady would usually follow him and make another attempt to cuddle, when at last he would start grooming her which she loved.
I always enjoyed watching them even when they were wrestling around on the rug. It seemed like they were fighting but no one ever got hurt. Lady would cry out once in a while for me to come and help her, which of course I usually did. Then I would reprimand Merlin, who would walk away with his head in the air, but never felt chastened.
Lady has been so good for me after so many losses in my life recently. She is always there for me to pet and of course she loves sitting on my lap. She constantly tries to get on my lap when I am at the computer, which is a lot. It is difficult to type with her on my lap though, so I have a hassock with a small towel or blanket on it for her to sit. Previously, it was for Merlin to sit there as he always wanted to be at my side or on my lap.
Thank goodness for our pets, I certainly don’t know what I would have done without my two cats.
