our ragdoll cat, ragsy, brother to dearly departed truck the cat is a really rather pleasant cat but there’s something about his countenance that always makes me wonder if maybe he thinks i might make a for a nice meal if only he were just a bit of a bigger cat.
but maybe it’s just me?
stare for hours out the window at The Girls, he does.
i am stronger than his jedi-mind-trick-stare-down power. mostly.
maybe he doesn’t really want to eat them? or, then again, maybe he does.
[ ragsy came to us “declawed”, so he doesn’t get to go outside as there are too many clawed cats in the neighborhood that would like to tear him to shreds ]
and so, a few months ago, it came to pass that we brought the brother of dearly departed Truck The Cat ( who stayed Too Long in Our Freezer ) into our home ( interestingly, even though i am very allergic to most cats, i’m not allergic to ragdoll cats despite their contested status as a hypoallergenic breed ).
ragsy has been a fine edition to the house and gets along with pushkin quite famously, though, we’ll see if things stay harmonious after pushkin realizes that ragsy may now be odin’s Favorite Pet!
( note: ragsy is looking much less fluffy than he did 4 years ago because of a recent grooming ( aka shaving ) that removed knots in his coat which stymied any amount of brushing ).
why do i think ragsy may be odin’s favorite new pet? in addition to patriotic bicycle snow tires and winter riding gear for christmas, odin also really, really really wanted a pocket watch, which santa graciously delivered. for months we’ve all been waiting for odin to choose just the right picture to put inside. and what did he choose?
a picture of ragsy.
don’t tell pushkin.
