Ruby has been growing steadily and healthily. She is now a beautiful and sturdy 8 month old queen. (9 months next Wednesday. She has the Babe Magnet totally under her little white paw - and big brother Charlie is far more smitten with her than he will admit. They play pouncing and chasing games together, either up and down the stairs or round the garden. But she has the advantage of him there as she is a brilliant climber of tress and she can scramble up high,. leaving him well behind.
She is also the home supervisor, checking on everything from washing to mopping the floor - or the efficiency of the shower. She loves to go into it and study the water drops after the shower has been used.
She has also realised that a writer needs a little companionship when working on a book or anything else that involves using the computer and keyboard. So she has taken up the traditional cat's position on my desk - between keyboard and computer screen. Like this
In this she is following in the paws of many cats before her - like the wonderful Sir Sidney ACOSB (A Cat of Superior Breeding)
|Sir Sid ACOSB|
And the beautiful Flora . Both sadly missed.
