As many of you know from reading previous blog entries. We went through a vigorous search and find mission before we adopted Ed the cat from Paws, Chicago. Ed has been with us for several months now and can best be described as a “fat cat.” He has a fondness for food. No one is quite certain how he got so big. Perhaps we are all in denial and will soon be going Catovereaters anonymous (COA). He is cuddly. He still purrs when he plops on your lap. He likes to join my wife and I in bed. In fact, he makes for a rather comfy pillow. And then there is Gogurt.
Gogurt has what I like to call “catitude.” He greets Ed by jumping on him trying to get him to play. And true to Ed’s cool cat ways, he “pawslaps” Gogurt and then licks him clean. Gogurt is like the kid who is excited by just hearing you’re going to the amusement park. But what surprises everyone is how much Gogurt lets Ry and J pick him up, cradle him, and hug him. He seems to intuit that the intention is good even if the style may be awkward.
There is talk of bringing one more kitten into the house once Gogurt gets big..hopefully just not quite as big as Ed.
