Ruby in the blue-gray winter light.
Ruby is getting friendlier and her fur much softer since becoming a Colehaus Cat just a month ago. We’ve learned her routine and her ours. In the morning while Mom straightens the room, Ruby likes to sit on the windowsill and catch up on the world for about an hour. There’s lots of different birds and squirrels to watch and sometimes, a neighborhood cat walking through. Then, it’s nap time until someone, usually Mom, picks her up and brings her out of her favorite servants’ quarters to mingle in the library. Ruby always complains a little over this.
Then, once the doors are closed, the real complaining begins because all she wants to do is go back in. While Mom does her Internet work in the library, Ruby ‘might’ wander over to the desk to let Mom know that she really, really wants back in. She ‘might’ sit on the back of one of the leather chairs to glare into her room, hoping that will speed the opening of the door. She ‘might’ hop up on the library window to look at the world from a different direction. She ‘might’ walk from the window, across the desk to where Mom is tap-tapping away at the keyboard and then, she ‘might’ sit on the desk for just a moment or two before jumping down and resuming her spot in front of the glass doors, knowing that Mom will need to go in there sooner or later.
Later, having napped long enough in preparation for nighttime sleeps, Ruby nibbles on food and drinks a good amount and just about the time her servants are getting ready for bed, she’ll find a toy and bat it around for a bit. Maxx, who also loves staying in the servants’ quarters, looks at her like, “Uh, whatever.” And goes back practicing his napping.
Next comes nightly brushings. We haven’t been able to brush her belly yet, but it can’t be too far away. So close!
Then, snuggles with Mom (don’t touch her feets or bitey-bitey, whappity-whap!), pets from the Dad and finally, real sleeping down by the Dad’s feets until morning.
Rinse, repeat every day! She loves this life and wonders what are your routines?
We invite all free-spirited Rubys (or whatever your name) to celebrate every Tuesday with us!
