Oh look – another picture of my cat

What have we been up to lately? Not much. Even less than usual, given that we are in a global pandemic that has rules and restrictions that keep changing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our old fellow is getting older by the day and we are spending as much time with him as we can. He is slower, less sturdy, and less prone to zoomies. His coat is more grey and brown than it was a decade ago, his gait less agile. He doesn’t catch himself when he falls, and has a constant upset stomach. He can’t always see that there is food in his bowl, and has to be served the same dish 3 or 4 times before he actually knows he has eaten. He doesn’t hear as well, but if you crackle a treat bag, his age is suddenly less and he is off like a shot. He talks less than his used to, and sometimes saddens me by going several days without speaking at all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What hasn’t changed? His love for his people. His disdain for animals on his porch. His need to be near me. His ability to tell when his kids come home. His companionship of the kids when they aren’t feeling well. His kitty kisses. His forehead nuzzles. His standing on my chest and waking me in the middle of the night to have me watch him eat. His Sphinx-like napping pose. His insistence that I relinquish my reading chair when he wants to sit on it. His belief that books and laptop keyboards are the best places to nap, especially if Mama is using them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And most of all – that he is the best cat that I have ever met, and my love and adoration of his handsome face and beautiful, funny personality.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
