When you have a harmonious home, with two wonderful well adjusted cats like Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red, why rock the boat?
I don’t know the answer to that question.
One Sunday morning, while doing my regular cleaning work at PAWS, I saw this eight month old polydactyl boy, and evidently lost my mind.
That afternoon, I suggested Rick take some measurements at the shelter for a catification project. And, by the way, want to see a cute cat?
Here’s our very own Mickey Mouser, luxuriating in his favorite sunny cat bed.
And then along comes Rufus the Red…
They are such good buddies.
Making a list, checking it twice;
Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice…
A few months ago, we were contacted by volunteer at the Longmont Humane Society in Colorado. She had questions about the wall hammocks Rick has been making out of wood. I was happy to share his plans, but they figured out another method – using plumbing supplies!
We had to give it a try.
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.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In!”
When we brought Rufus home to keep Mickey Mouser company,
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”!
Today bloggers all over the world are promoting and publishing peace globes. I can’t think of a better time to change the tone of the conversation to peace, love, and kindness.
My globe features Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red, feline role models.
No comments today, everybody take a deep breath and think good thoughts.
