|Massively freaked out!|
I am not sure if I am actually get to five random things today, because I am a new mom! The adorable ball of fluff you are seeing is Zazzles! So we shall rename the day FELINE FRIDAY. If you are not a cat fancier, sorry. You are missing out on some of the most indifferent unconditional love in the world. I was missing this aloof affection and adoration. We adopted a one year old cat this week. I had forgotten what younger cats were like. Our Yoda was 17 years old when she left us, and though I always felt she was rather feisty and spry, I am now being reminded more of what her earlier years were like. Not that Zazzles is like Yoda...or that I even want that (I do not. I want to appreciate them as the individuals they are). However, all cats do certain things as youngsters that fade with age. The biggest thing is how surprised Zazzles is by the sounds and sights of her new house. I forget that she is new to house living. Dishwashers are loud. Vacuums are terrifying (although I am pretty sure that all of the other humans in my household are equally terrified of the vacuum). Everything is surprising. I also forgot how nosy cats can be. I was accustom to Yoda walking up going through bags and even my purse. She gave everything a cursory looking over. It was second nature. Yoda also stole pens from my purse, and put them under the dresser in the bedroom. (It has been nice being able to find basic office supplies for the past few months) Zazzles stalks all bags, bats everything around them, then steals a glance inside and then runs off. Empty mouthed...so far. She is not confident in her snooping. Perhaps in time she will grow more confident in her snooping skills...or perhaps not. Either way it is nice to have her lovely, indifference in my home.
