Retired Guy vs. Kitten

We adopted a kitten two weeks ago today.  Daisy is thriving!  She is a white and gray tiger and has a ton of extra toes.  Her front white paws look like little snow shoes as she plops along looking for something to get into.

As info: Chessie is getting more used to Daisy. It was pretty bad at first and she is still pissed off. They can be close…but touching touches off a hissing fit.  Dogs: they could care less!  Toby lets Daisy eat out of his dish while he is still eating…what a guy!

While emptying the dishwasher before my 6am yoga class, it hit me:  Kittens and retired guys are pretty much the same.

The first thing the in the morning, they go potty. Then they take a bath. Then they eat.

Pretty much the rest of the day is spent:

  • Playing:  batting around shiny objects.  making stuff in the garage
  • Eating
  • Napping: sometimes together and sometimes alone
  • Pooping
  • Catching the occasional sun ray: see Napping
  • Snuggling: see Napping
  • and so on.

That’s pretty much it

Kittens and retired guys also can drive the still working and kitty mom crazy, by making noise, creating tripping hazards, wanting meals and the occasional toy.

Daisy purrs. To quote Mr. Spock: (while holding a Tribble) “Most curious creature, Captain. It’s trilling seems to have a tranquilizing effect on the human nervous system.”  If I need to explain Tribble; you are too young to understand my blog.

Lonnie Zens. He continues to create the most beautiful furniture, frames, and other wooden objects.  I am truly amazed at his ability to take a piece of wood and turn it into something spectacular with such ease.

Our yard and house have never looked cuter/cleaner/neater…even with the drought!

Daisy and Lonnie have bonded.  It is cute. So, I must inform you all that Hell has officially frozen over!

So, as Daisy climbed among the clean dishes as I retrieved them from the dishwasher and put them away. That is what I thought about this morning.

Have a nice day.
