That’s when we decided it was time to plant another crop of kitty grass.
Here’s Rufus tamping down moistened potting soil.
One would think, we should have two beds on the wide sunny window sill for two cats, right?
In their inscrutable way, here are our Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red contemplating the unpopular red plush bed.
“He drew a circle that shut me out –
Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout.

we had no idea that we had initiated a month long battle of wills.
That was in July 2015.
Rufus the Red wishes you a very happy Holiday Season.
“May your days be merry and bright”!
