For this week’s Friday Flashback, I wanted to revisit some classic moments with Olivia and Quint, the perfect pair of kitties that entered our lives as an unexpected 2 for 1 adoption promotion. Born of different mothers, raised by different fosters and not initially getting along with each other during the first weeks in Colehaus, they turned out to be so similar and such a pair, it’s hard not to think of them growing up their entire lives as loving siblings:
The Dad says there are these wildfires out and about and that we need to take care for air quality and such. I think it sounds like a bunch of alarmist nonsense. At the worst, it sounds like an opportunity to stare down some danger.
But then he tells me he’s going to close the window for a few days until things are less dangerous. You tell me how I am to respond to that!
For a moment, I think “I can take him,” and prepare to leap with bare claws the moment he starts to close the window…
…but he is a very big human…
Yes, he is very large, and he’s been a pretty good guy to date. So in a monumental harnessing of the danger gene, I resist the urge to leap.
Instead, I lobbied for at least some last whiffies of outside before the opportunity was gone.
Some days feel perfect for running, jumping and playing. Other days feel designed for resting in a favorite place – contemplating running, jumping and playing.
Today feels like the latter.
