It's a lazy Sunday here. Clear and bright, but quite cold for us (43 degrees this morning).
Most of the animals are taking it easy this morning. Halley has taken up her normal morning nap position in front of my husband's computer monitor. She appears to be relaxed. The goats are asleep in the pasture, and Gus the horse is just hanging out.
On the other end of the scale, we have new-cat Irving, who is recovering from a cold, and starting to feel like himself again. He's been shut up in my sewing room for a week, where he's been content mostly to sleep. It's warm and safe, but now that he's on the mend, it's small and boooooring. He's played with everything that can be played with (and everything that shouldn't be played with is shut up in a cabinet).
It's starting to get scary to go in there. He jumps up and searches you for anything that can be played with.
The blurry thing in front of his face is a piece of string. String is huge on Irving's list of 'things that need to be killed.' String is very serious business.
Isn't it nice to see him starting to feel better?
But how are we going to keep him entertained?
Note to self: Put cat toys -- lots of cat toys -- on the shopping list...
These Animals Will Probably Outlive Us All
