Kitty update lovers, today is your lucky day on TALC, for I have a Nenette update post… only a month since my last one! Shocking!
Being that I’m in my office all day, all of these pics were taken here.
Nenette has developed new habits and games for this new, revised office.
She spies on me from behind the plants.
She gazes at the Buddha (like mother, like daughter).
She instigates play by chewing the tassels on the bag I keep right next to me. She knows, see, that I don’t want her to chew those tassels… by chewing on them, I’m compelled to grab her toy – the black string behind her – to distract her away from the tassels. (Yes, I’m easily trainable by her. I’m only partially susceptible to her tricks. Truth be told, I could refuse to participate if I wanted to!)
Now that I’m not sitting at a table with room on it for her, she drinks her water beneath the small bench behind me. This little “cage” has become her new watering hole, and here, she’s upped her water game, taking it to a whole new level: she comes to ask me for water, I get up and get it, bringing my own refilled glass while I’m at it… and then when I get back, I set her water glass down, hold mine out to her for a toast – “chin!” – and we both drink our water.
Callaghan could not hide his amazement the first time he witnessed us performing this ritual.
(I don’t know why/how that black bar filled up the bottom part of the pic, by the way.)
She naps on the futon.
She lolls around with her tongue sticking out.
And there’s our Nenette update for June! I’m not making any promises, but we’ll try for another one in July.
