As I write this I have a cat sitting on my shoulder. How come no one told me about cats liking to imitate parrots? I have to admit, I'm kinda attached to this cat. I never thought of myself as a cat person but, I really think I am. Now, don't get me wrong, I like my dogs, but I REALLY like my cat. He doesn't have to follow me around the house all day. He doesn't have to beg to go outside to use the bathroom. (Although if his litter box is too dirty he does kind of complain. And if I don't clean it out, he goes in the ashes that we keep in a pan by the stove to be taken outside.) He actually sleeps most of the time. But, when he isn't asleep, he plays HARD.
It's nothing unusual to hear what sounds like a car shifting gears in our house. It's just the cat running from one place to the other. I think he thinks that if he makes those sounds he can go faster. And since we have a concrete floor, all of his spinning of his "back wheels" wears down his back claws. Which is good because he likes to use them when we are playing.
Another thing I like about this cat is his ability to not have the same schedule. You don't know what he will be doing from one minute to the next or where he will be sleeping. So not like our dogs! One night he will sleep by me.(On top of the blankets.) One night he will sleep by Hubby. Some nights he won't even sleep by either one of us. He will just sleep in the window sill. But what's so nice is he DOES sleep at night.
Well, I didn't really want this to turn into a cat post. lol. I was really going to tell you about our new foal. I still haven't gotten close to him. Yep, you read right. We now think it's a HIM. Oh, he will be fixed. I don't want a stud horse around here. That's what caused him to begin with. lol. We still not sure if we are going to keep him or not. More than likely not. If we get a new horse around here I would want a draft horse. Not a big one, more like a Fjord or a haflinger. Something short that I could ride if I wanted to. But it will be something that can pull a cart or a plow. You never know when the tractor doesn't work. lol. No, I always thought I would want a horse that could pull a cart or buggy. Nothing fancy at all! I want, what some people would call, an old plug horse. If I ride it, it's going to be at a walk. My body is not made for speed. lol.
So until next time,
