Okay, massive cleaning spree over. I swept up embarrassing amounts of dust bunnies. Actually, they were more like elephants. Feeling a little nauseated and have a slight headache, probably from inhaling stuff I shouldn't. Have all the windows open and am kicking back with a kombucha.
Played a fun game with Oboe. He is one of those cats that enjoys being covered up with a blanket or a sheet and reaching his paws out to catch things. It must come from being good at hiding from prey. I used to have a cat that loved to actually be made into the bed. I would worry and finally drag him out after fifteen minutes or so. I was afraid he would smother! Of course he never did and he hated to come out. Oboe didn't scare me that badly, although he was annoyed when I abandoned the game after a few minutes to go back to cleaning. He didn't play much when he first came here, now he is playing more and more. I put a harness on him last week. I would love to train him to be on a leash; I could take him outside for short periods. He did better than I thought. I will try again and be consistent. I would love to take him to sit with me on the meadow rock in the sunshine.
I have some birthday emails to answer, better get to that!
