Rumi looks so angelic when asleep... but he's such a terror when awake. He is into everything, all the time. Today he got up onto the highest shelf in the house and gleefully flung everything off of it, item by item. One of these items was a glass jar that holds dog treats. It shattered and Gadjo went running to investigate. By the time I got there to clean up, I found Gadjo picking through broken glass to nab a piece of dried bison.



The Husband bought Gadjo some fish flakes (100% dried bonito) as a treat. We expected Gadjo to sit politely while the container was opened, sniff at it, and finally take a delicate, kitten-sized bite.

Love the texture and the colours in this one Jala. It works great - and would work in a much bigger size I think.
I am also thinking Rumi and co believe it is their house and they are just allowing you two to live there rent free. Whereas dogs kind of look for a pack leader, I think cats believe they are the pack leader. Is that your experience?

That bright green in your painting is reminding me of spring - yay!

That video was hilarious. Silly, naughty cats.

Jala, I love those tiny abstracts, especially this one with the green, stunning! The video was terrific, It really shows Gadjo's delicate eating habits!

Green is tough to tame even in a small box, But this is nice and spring-y.

Gadjo's pretty pushy for a little guy.
