In the last week or so, he's been on a path to recovery, AND discovery.
I walked into the kitchen last week, and I *thought* I saw from the corner of my eye, a little orange blur jump off of the kitchen counter. But, I wasn't sure, and didn't pay much attention to it.
"Just a quick jump from the top of the stereo, to the counter, and here I am! At the sink, and oooo! I bet if I knock this fork around the sink it'll be really annoying! Yay!"
Not Atticus, not Mae, and not even goofball Gandalf ever jumped and climbed like this guy can.
He gets into EVERYTHING that he shouldn't.
*with apologies to the Swiffer people and the Isley Brothers!*
See the Mountain Lion at rest, his prey discarded.
And let's watch him as he approaches the watering hole.
He did stop long enough to wish his big sister Mae a happy 11th birthday on March 24th.
I still remember Mae's first day here. She jumped on my shoulder while I was sitting down by crawling on my back. And she bonded with Atticus almost immediately, and he is still the only cat in the house she'll differ to. She was just the sweetest little fluff ball. And she still is! Happy Birthday, Baby Mae!
So. What else besides Malcolm doing taibo?
Well... I was kind of hesitant to mention this. But, seeing how I'm fine - I will.
I was coming home from work last week, and I got dinged by a car walking through the intersection. Nothing major, just enough to knock me over. I was crossing on a green light, and a lady made a right in front of me, and didn't stop. Oh! Did I mention she was on her cellphone?? Once she saw me, it was too late, and she didn't put on her brakes quickly enough. So, she hit me. Luckily, I fell on my butt, leaning towards my left side. I didn't hit my head, and right now I'm bruised (am I!) and very, very sore. And feeling better today than yesterday. My friend Dave came over yesterday, and helped me with my shopping. It took less than 2 hours, and tired me out for the rest of the day!
As this was rush hour, and at a modestly busy intersection in my neighbourhood, there were a lot of witnesses, including a streetcar full of people, cars waiting at the light, and another person crossing the street behind me. It's not like she could deny it. I was really quite gratifying to see how many people came out to help me, including the streetcar driver. The police arrived, and she was very cooperative with them and me, and didn't deny anything.
Oh! I just realized I didn't take any knitting pictures. Not that I have a whole lot to show for myself.
Anyway - that's it for me. I'm tired just reading this! Have a great, and SAFE, week!
