Zeldie continued to seek them out, and has now taken to sleeping across a batch of pincushions on my table. I keep them covered well. I can’t help but wonder if she thinks she is hatching more chickens? This is but one of many” Zeldie” stories. She truly has a life of her own though she resides with us. Cats I have learned are never owned by anyone.
We have a lab/coon-hound dog as well, and unlike Zeldie, Cassie knows her place. She has a special bed in several rooms and that is where you will find her, though sometimes if Zeldie gets there first, you will find Zeldie instead of Cassie. Zeldie has her own bed, but that is not the one she prefers. Now that I think about it, this is a pattern of hers, claiming what is not hers and making it her own...even the back of my sofa has a blanket across the back now and my “vacation chair” too!
She is my “mostly” and "sweetest" companion and I will miss her when her short life is over! Life will, however, then be filled with quilts on beds, furniture left uncovered and projects safely laid out on my dining room table again! Whoops, what am I thinking? Cats have nine lives and add to it my one life and that makes ten lives for Zeldie!
P.S. Don't forget Jon and Maria's Open Farm this Sunday, July 21st. There will be lots of artwork of animals with attitudes for sale in Maria's studio. Don't miss it! Visit her blog by clicking on the link above for further details!
