Sierra soaked it up while I did some organizing. I always have one of the cats as company when I am anywhere in the house. They seem to seek me out for attention. It's nice to be wanted and nicer still to spend time with them individually. Sierra is such a sweetheart.
"Sierra, did you know that Spring is only 24 days away?"
"That IS grand!"She loves to just sit and listen to me yap away as I confide in her my deepest secrets. She bats her eyes and meows softly and listens so intently with both ears forward. She is a wise cat; a no-nonsense gal. I believe she has taken the role of top cat now that our beautiful Cali has left us. I know she deserves that status and I hope she enjoys it. We always end our conversations with a hug and a kiss. She would not have it any other way.
When they are put away in the book-case I tend to forget all about them. Tea and books go so well together. It's the thing to do when you finally sit down to relax; make some tea and enjoy a book.
I'm quite busy right now with cat-sitting as people head to warmer climates. From now until March break the deals are on for flights and lodgings. I have loaded up the cat-bag with treats and toys and brushes. I have so many gorgeous cats to enjoy in the next few days. Some are regulars and a few I will enjoy getting to know.I know my service is very appreciated in our area as I have had many people tell me how happy they are to have found someone who will come into their home and care for their cats while they travel. The cats are happier and more relaxed than they would be at a cat kennel and they can hire me to come in up to three times a day. Most clients ask for one or two visits but I have had many that require more because the cat is alone and on medication. I'm happy to provide the service that is tailored to the needs of the cat. It's hard to think of this as a 'job' as it is such a pleasure to visit and care for each of them but I know it is a service that is needed and the business is growing every month.
I'll have lots of photos for you next week. Drop by to meet the little charmers.
