Aloof is one thing to be expected in cats, but mad is not.
Thanks! That's a great line!
An update: it's honeymoon time!
Mimi has been very playful, affectionate and fun lately... just like she was before the incident. Today we had such a beautiful afternoon that I couldn't deprive the cats from going out to the yard... but they weren't alone. I had some work to do, and brought it with me. To my surprise, they chose not to explore their surroundings but remained near me instead, sunning their bellies, catching bugs, dozing off and having a grand ole time. I took out some of my toys (cameras, of course), and at intervals I played with them (the cameras, of course), with the cats, and worked reading and taking notes on a book I must review for a journal. We went all inside together at 7:30 PM. Ben and Mimi ate, napped and I watched I, Robot
in the TV/DVD player I have in the basement.
Here's Mimi, last December, when she was still small but not cuter. She's grown a lot bigger now. BTW, it was taken with a Leica!
