Happy Cat Guardians
Posted by terrepruitt on May 25, 2016
Because it has been a while since I posted about my darling little cats, I thought I would share some pictures of them. They are very good cats even though they do “cat” things that I would prefer they not do. Such as pull the roses out of the vases or knock over the vases. And knocking things off of tables and counters. They, of course, are not allowed on places where we eat and/or have food, so that means tables and counters are off-limits. They do a good job of not being on them — while we are able to see, but often times in the morning there will be evidence that someone has been on one of those forbidden surfaces and knocked somethings down or even off. They are cats, they are curious. They get a scolding that barely interrupts their whatever-it-is-that-they-are-doing when said offense is discovered. But overall they are great girlies! I have hundreds of pictures of them. Most of the photos are of them while they are sleeping, they are so cute when they lie all over each other. We enjoy having them.
Also, it might be that I am inspired to do a cat post because the place where we found our two lovely cats is opening again. It is the adoption venue called The Dancing Cat. I used to call it a cat cafe, but they don’t really sell cafe food as do some cat cafes. I’ve seen them call it a cat lounge and that sounds good, but then people might not know what that is. In 2015 it was planned to be a 4 week “pop-up event”, but it proved to be a hit and ended up lasting 6 months. So they are bringing it back in the same place — for now. Information on the website says they are looking for a permanent location in San Jose. They are opening again on Saturday, May 28, 2016. You can make reservations and visit a cat.
We are super happy with our cats. They are fantastic girlies! It has not even been a year since we adopted them. I had been wondering how to get a cat because I had never been to a shelter to get an animal. Our cat, Spot, landed – literally – in our yard. She was an angel. So I didn’t know how to pick a cat. A place where you can go and visit with cats while they lounge around, play, and eat is so great. I was able to meet our cats and observe them for a few days. At first Smokey never came out of the bottom of one of the furnishings, but when a new cat came and ousted her she ended up high on a cat shelf.
Smokey is still a bit shy. She is not fond of being held, she will put up with it, she doesn’t throw a cat fit, but I don’t think it is her favorite thing. She likes to receive her hugs, kisses, and scratches while she is on the ground. She is also a heavy girl. Very solid. She also has a lot, I really mean A LOT to say. She has a lot on her mind and she shares often. She is very fast and a great catcher. If the doors are open in the house that is where she will be found, sitting by the open doors. Smokey is as sweet as can be.
Esmeralda is light as a feather and she proves it with her leaps and bounds. She is a little lover kitty and loves to be picked up and snuggled. She is not as talkative as her sister, but she does tell us when she wants something. She is not a “meower” but a mumbler. She “murphs”. She is the thinker.
They both seem to love each other. They play often. They run around the house at top speeds then stop and tumble around. They bathe each other and sleep together. Such cuties! We are happy.
