Enter the Lioness shows Opie after going to the groomer. Opie had some matted fur and it was beyond my ability to get rid of, so off she went to the groomer. It went pretty well and now she is in a much better mood with her new haircut. It has been several years since she had her last one.
Scooby is Christine’s Calendar Cat pick for October 2020. Scooby is ready for Halloween! This photo is from Halloween 2019.
What day is it? EVERYDAY! X’ing off the days on the calendar has never been more important! I wonder if the cats know the difference? I think they notice the changes in the weather. First we had unseasonable hot weather to suffer through, and then we had wildfire smoke to breathe, and now today the typical Pacific Northwest constant rain falling down cleaning everything. The cats still lie about and try to find something to do but mostly it is sleep.
Several years back I posted these videos of Scooby and the vacuum. Since there are plenty of new people browsing around the Feline Cafe–no masks required, I have posted these today to once again illustrate that Scooby likes the vacuum. He is a real annoyance as you can see trying to vacuum as he won’t even get out of the way for it. He likes to play with the wand as well. So there you have it– video and audio proof! No, he is NOT deaf! No matter how quietly you try to open a tin of cat food, he can hear it and come running out of a dead sleep! As a bonus, today I add a video of my clockwork squirrel on the dining room table. He goes much faster if he is wound up tighter, but I am afraid to break the spring. If you do not have audio working, you can hear the squirrel chew his nuts. His eyes used to roll around but alas no more!
I add yet another photo below of Scooby from Jan 4 2020 where he predicts what the year will be like for us all.
