QUEBECOIS WINTER (019/365 DAYS, 3.0)


One look outside, 
and I was compelled to go back to bed.


Of course, 
things are not always that simple, 
what with two "roommates"... 
:D~

    1. She always looks mad!!
      I had lifted the tapestry to open the bedroom window to take a few pics.
      She was wondering what I was doing, that's all!!
      :D~

  2. I hope you got some rest and that your 4-legged flatmates didn't keep standing on you. Mine slaps me on the nose or purrs in my face when he thinks it's time I got up :-)

    1. Not really because a snowplower spent its day clearing a parking lot across the street,
      a parking lot hardly bigger than a hankerchief. I don't think that guy could handle
      the parking lot of a shopping mall...

      Ophelia stayed by my side for a while and left when I was no longer patting her.
      Carrie came in about every half hour and eventually decided to elect permanent residency on my chest.
      Maybe I should sprinkle some valium in their food...

  4. Before i got a cat, I wouldn't have understood your last sentence. I've read that calicos are nearly always female, so I guess the cat in the picture is a female. Maybe you can post a pic of your second roommate.

    1. I've only had females so far.
      Here's a pic of Ophelia:

  5. Yay, Ophelia. I've only had the one male since the early 70s when I had a female. The male is far more friendly, and I've heard that this is generally true with males, so I'm wondering what your experience is with that.

    1. We often hear that cats are independant creatures, a bit aloof even.
      Igraine, my first cat, was always by my side, like, literally,
      squeezed between my butt and the back of my desk chair when I was at the computer.
      I still sit on the edge of the chair out of habit...
      And she liked to snuggle at night.
      Carrie, not as intense, just need a few TLC sessions a day, about 15 minutes each.
      She's not in my face the whole time, but always nearby, watching me.
      If I move to another room, you can bet she'll be following, eventually...
      Ophelia, also always close-by, is much friendlier, knows my routine and beats me to it,
      reaching the bathroom or the bed before I can.
      They are curious and playful creatures which have proved to be a blessing in my life,
      as they manage to make me laugh daily, despite it all.
      They do things on their own term but they are not as independent as I was led to believe.
      I now realize I might find a dog to be "needy" while a cat allows me some space.
      I've learned to appreciate this kind of interaction.
      I wish I had been able to find something similar in my love relationships,
      space but committed to one another nonetheless.
      I instead found that either I'd have someone who cannot breath and think without me,
      or one that took this need for space for permission to fuck everything that moved...
      Pets are better. They imprint on you and stick by your side, faithfully!!
      Ophelia is a little too faithful though as she hides when I have any visitor.
      But she had a difficult beginning in life and it looks like I'm the only human she tolerates.
      Carrie, is the opposite, becoming fast friend with visitors, pleased with all of the attention.
      My cats are well behaved, not touching plants; I've conceded the dining room table
      since I always eat at my desk, and in exchange, they never climb on the kitchen counter.
      You might ask how do I know? I've tested it with flour, sprinkling some over the surface, and never found any paw prints... I try to make my home a safe place, leaving nothing sharp or toxic around,
      protecting my electronics so they don't electrocute themselves. They know the dos and donts around here and I got to know their needs, so I think we're doing fine.
      I'm glad to have them here with me.
      I like who I am with them.
