I loved reading all the cat stories yesterday! Cats are such interesting and fun creatures.
And as I was reading, I realized something. I’ve never hear Ivy purr! I thought all cats purred. Could her “purrer” be broken?
Of course I got a bit upset and Googled cats that don’t purr. Click on the link if you want to read about it.
My daughter could not finish the subway tile project yesterday. She’s hoping to be back this afternoon. She had other commitments and had to leave before 1 p.m.
The project was a bit harder than she expected I think. She started working on it around 9 a.m. and left at 12:40. She got most of it done but still has a bit more to go.
My daughter has I believe four house closings this week. Last Friday she closed on the flip house that I showed you photos of a few weeks ago. Then she met us for lunch.
Then she got news that after that morning’s closing, the couple who purchased the house took their keys and went to the flip house. Which I guess is what most couples do after they get the keys to their new home.
And guess what? When they got inside the house he surprised her by proposing marriage to her right then and there! How exciting is that?
Lately I’ve been watching “Trial & Retribution” on Acorn TV. Here is a little synopsis of the long running series…
“Prime Suspect” creator Lynda La Plante is the driving force behind this gritty police procedural drama, which follows each case over two episodes. It begins with the crime, proceeding through the investigation and concluding with the trial.
The series, originally produced for ITV in Britain, is known for using a split screen to give viewers more than one story perspective.
The first episode was shown on October 19, 1997. The final episode was on February 13, 2009. So it’s an older series. But I’m enjoying it.
On Sunday I gave my next door neighbor the beige chair.
Ivy is a good girl and doesn’t scratch my furniture. But she is playful and she liked to run and jump on the chair from various angles.
Because of her size, her claws were starting to pull threads out of the fabric of the chair. I decided that I’d rather have someone else enjoy the chair instead of letting it get torn up. So my neighbor took it. She doesn’t have pets.
When I purchased the chair it was hard to make a judgment about the fabric online. But the upholstery was made of a fairly thin fabric and was prone to having threads pulled if there was a cat in the house.
My couch is made of recycled plastic bags and is very durable and my recliner is microfiber. She hasn’t been able to do anything to them.
You can’t expect a cat not to play and run and jump. Better to accept that that is merely normal behavior and try to work around it.
It rained yesterday and the night before. But by afternoon it was bright sunshine and warm. Spring is right around the corner.
Do you have any plans for your garden yet?
