“A cat improves the garden wall in sunshine, and the hearth in foul weather.”
-Judith Merkle Riley
Shy and retiring and a little on the wild side, our Fluffy is always at her best in the garden.
At 17 she has lost her desire to climb trees and hunt rats but she still enjoys the sun on her back. She’s a bit of a stealth kitty, quietly hiding under shrubs and between flower beds, especially when rambunctious children are on the scene.
Conversely, she can pierce the nighttime solitude with her tortured wail, beseeching you to fill her food dish at 3:00 am or to release her from the cozy-confines of the bathroom where incontinent kitties must now spend the night.
A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.
