Less daylight all the time, cold, rain, snow, more rain, more snow . . .So this is the best way to spend the days now . . .
New year new photos of Jacky. I realized I don’t have many photos of him out doors in the winter time. Here he is on the terrace. He is so sweet, love him ❤
When I’m on the computer Jacky usually is laying either on the desk between the screen and the keyboard or on the shelf beside me. It doesn’t take him long to fall asleep. Here he is on the shelf.
Last night I woke to strange sounds coming from the living room. I told my husband “I think Jacky’s got a mouse. YOU go see what you can do !” He came back and said “It’s a mouse and I couldn’t get it”. Maybe it’s gone in the morning.” It was not ! Jacky found it under the bed. I told him to take it out, t a k e i t o u t. Which he did. I looked out the window. There they were. Lying in the grass staring at each other. The mouse shivering in horror. I grabbed my phone to get some photos. Then went back in. A few minutes later I was not able to see neither of them. I felt bad for the mouse and kind of wanted things to end well for him but, on the other hand I wish Jacky took care of him so he won’t come back next night.
I read about this book on two different blogs I follow. The other one is Katzenworld and the other Rohvannyn, Mindflight who also does have a story in it. I ordered it online from Adlibris and it arrived last week. I began reading it in the beginning of this week and have, so far, read two stories. I am sure I will like all of the stories and the illustrations are so very cute. Good thing is. Each book purchased will help support work of International Cat Care. Today I saw Jacky using the book as a pillow when napping. My husband says he thinks I should, every evening, read one story at bedtime for Jacky.
In the spring we talked to the vet about when to have Jacky castrated. I asked should it had been done already because I read it’s usually, now a days, done at an much earlier age than we have had it done to our other cats. Usually by the time they show signs of marking their territory. He said it’s okay to have it done later. Come back after the summer vacations. On Wednesday we took him there and had the procedure done. The vet said he needs to wear the plastic collar for twelve days. I don’t think none of our other cats needed to wear a collar for that many days. But, if it’s how it must be then be it. He soon learned how to master the thing. I’m afraid he thinks he must wear it for the rest of his life. I tell him every evening only so many more days and you will get rid of it. I bet he will be ever so happy when we take the collar off. Only eight more days to go.
