It was a busy day today. I walked to most of my cat client's homes because it was so warm with the sun shining. I got a bit extra exercise and was rewarded when I reached my destination. All the cats were very welcoming and ready to play with the cat-sitter.
The initial greeting is always a sniff of my hand. That gives the cat time to get used to you being in their space.
I always groom each cat during our visits if the cat allows it (and most do). It's a sure-fire way to bond quickly with each cat.
One cat likes to chew on a scarf while I comb him. Another kneads the carpet. There is always funny little quirky things about each and every one of them.
So today it was tabbies & marmalade's & a beautiful calico scaredy-cat.
The weather here is too hot for this time of year. Everyone is talking about it. People are out in shorts, sandels, eating ice-cream (what???). Yes, it was a disturbingly, beautiful day. Things are about to change a little, though.
