Since my pioneering use the irrelevant blog photo has been a smash hit with at least one of you and the rest of you are too polite to comment, I’m going to push the boundaries here and add an irrelevant post. This is justified by two things:
- When Moongazer left a comment, she asked me to post some kitten photos. In the context, this actually made sense.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about our cat Smudge having been killed by a car and a lot of you sent sympathy and lovely comments and even a poem. So although I can’t write a happy ending, I can share a happy beginning.
Left to my own devices, I’d have waited longer to get another cat, but Wild Thing doesn’t do well with the gaping holes that deaths and departures leave behind, so we now have a kitten, Fast Eddie. And although we still miss Smudge, Fast Eddie’s ridiculously cute, and absorbing in that insane way kittens have. The dog follows him everywhere and licks his ears. She believes she has to stand on him to do this, which is a bit of a problem but at least she’s not a mastiff and he seems to think it’s normal. And who am I to rule on what’s normal?
We also have one pissed-off older cat. I trust she’ll get over it eventually.
