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.
Jacky loved to jump up onto the laundry drying rack and walk it back and forth. He did that for several times a day. He also loved to lay there to watch our doings from above. Now the drying rack is so out !
The old apple tree now is “the in thing”. He is up there many times a day. He climb as high up as possible. I see the thinner branches bend under him and it makes me worry he will fall. My husband suggested we cut it all down ! Yesterday our son put a shelf halfway up into the tree. The idea is he will stay there and not go further up the tree. Doesn’t it look like he is, at least for now, very pleased with the shelf.

It was Jacky’s one year birthday yesterday. Time flies. It seems like yesterday when we brought him in the middle of last August. I wanted to have some outdoor pictures of him and shot one set on Friday the 9th. In case it would rain on Sunday. It didn’t. so I took a couple more photos of him yesterday. He got a toy. A “big rat” 😀 Canelo took it after a few minutes. Convinced it was for him 🙂
I have been quite busy and almost missed photographing the apple flowers. On Monday I saw they started to turn brownish already. I quickly took a couple of pictures. I, of course, have plenty pictures of them from years back but, when they are in bloom I can’t resist them. Jacky was very curious about what I was doing. He climbed up in the tree trying to figure out what was going on. Wednesday was a windy day and all the petals blew away.
The beginning of May has been unusually cold. I read it has not been this cold a spring in 60 years ! This week it was snowing Monday-Thursday. Cold or not ! It was time to take Canelo to a groomer. Good thing I did that because today was pretty warm.

Jacky loves the warmth. The ground is dry and warm and so is the sun. He stayed out in the backyard almost all day. I went to take a couple of pictures of him. My husband shouted from the kitchen: why don’t you take a video clip. Thanks, good idea. I haven’t recorded anything yet with my new smart phone. Will be interesting to see how a video clip turns out to be. When I was recording a bird landed on a branch in the tree. My first thought was he might try to chase it. He didn’t move. He was watching with interest and said something. I think he said look mommy, look how close the bird is.
