I've been missing looking after the neighbors' cats - Baron and Nellie. Baron, the tuxedo black and white male cat, became quite friendly by the second day, and Nellie, the cat I thought didn't really exist as I've never seen her, showed up the last day and even let me pet her for a moment. We were getting to know each other and then I had to leave. How sad. Nellie as it turned out was hiding under the bed cover. I did see a lump there but it never occurred to me that it could be her. I guess she (rightly so it seems) thought if I can't see them they can't see me. Quite clever, I might add.
To comfort myself, I've been indulging in some cat photos...
How many cats do you see in this photo? For the longest time I only saw the gray one on the bottom right. And then, all of a sudden, the rest appeared. I swear, they were not there before.
Lounging, I love lounging and taking siestas. And, I hear, cats do too. "Dimanche apres-midi" - a wonderful painting by the surealist painter Leonor Fini (one of my favorite artists). A specal kind of bond that's portrayed so wonderfully here.
Obsessed? Why, I have no idea what you mean. Hm, all right, let's call it a cat enthusiast.
