A couple of months ago
when I was reading Meredith's blog
I noticed her cat sleeping on the bookcase and looking like a bookend!
It reminded me of a poem that my younger daughter learnt at school.
Cats Sleep Anywhere
(Eleanor Farjeon 1881 - 1965)
Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair
Top of piano, window ledge, in the middle, on the edge
Open draw, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.
I have had my other daughter's cat,
as a lodger, while they were in a rented home
See my earlier post
I knew virtually nothing about cats
Yes we did have feral cats on the farm but
a cat in the house.....
she was getting me trained nicely
when she left at the beginning of December
and I do miss her!
She determined where she would sleep
and I followed behind her...
and moved her bedding accordingly
She had liked to sleep behind the farm overalls
(can you see her blanket on the right?)
But, once the boiler was lit
that is where it had to be..... so our towels
could no longer dry there!
If I went to sit in the garden room
she would sit on the window sill outside
until I could stand it no more and let her in!
and then she would sit on the back of my chair
tapping my shoulder with her paw
and nudging me with her head
So...yes I miss her
I'm telling my family please don't think
to buy me another
I don't think I could take more training!!
I am feeling a little better
and so have picked up the crochet that I started, while I was feeling so ill,
before I was admitted to hospital
It's the Ripple pattern
found at Lucy's Blog Attic24 Neat Ripple Pattern
I have read others say that it's very relaxing
if you need something gentle to do
and I must say that
I'm enjoying it
Before I went into hospital
I was offered a recliner chair.....
and by the time I came home it had been installed
and my lamp beside it
It is just so cosy and exactly what I needed!
I know it's a bit late but I would like to wish you all
a Happy, and Healthy New Year!!
