Himself is going through a period of adjustment right now… a month or so ago, the downstairs people and their two cats moved out, and new people moved in, very awesome people who we are happy to share with, two women and a man, and no cats. Our leases specifically state “no cats- except Raymond.” No lies, he has his own clause in this binding document. As Raymond believes that he is the overseer of our entire street (a private no exit street, perfect for errant felines) I’m sure you can imagine what he is like with our property and the comings and goings of both flats… it is all his business, he must have access to both flats to make sure that everything is in order, and it is vital that he is accepted and loved by all members of the house!
On the weekend, KB and I went to the downstairs people’s flatwarming, it was a relaxing and fun afternoon, and a couple of hours after we arrived, Raymond appeared… it’s strange socialising with your cat, especially when he is working the room far better than you ever could, shamelessly accosting the people eating spicy chicken drumsticks…. He pretended he didn’t recognise us, especially when we were growling at him to get off the coffee table…
In the end KB put him outside, he didn’t like that at all. (translate he was chucked out of the party for being an out-of-control party animal)
Lucky for him, he is particularly attractive and has a very enigmatic personality and seems to be welcome wherever he goes… And as I said to the lovely downstairs people, you can never own a cat, they just live with you and sponge off you until they decide there is somewhere better to be. KB and I find his popularity amusing, we are fascinated by the different perfumes he comes home smelling of, and roll our eyes when he shows up mid-afternoon after a long sleep on someone’s couch… we hope that others get as much enjoyment out of him as we do… just please don’t feed him spicy chicken!
Have a lovely end of your week… I’ve just finished cropping photos of a very exciting post and tutorial, I can’t wait to show you, see you Friday!
