You promised me an open window
To feel the breeze on my whiskers
Hear the birds as they speak to me
And to smell the newly cut grass
But yet, I find it closed, you lied!
~Willow the Cat
As I sit on the couch and watch Willow headed my way, I know that I am soon to hear her small voice chirp at me. I ask her to come sit on the couch with me, but she insists that I come down to the floor. She pats the side of the couch to get my attention, and gracefully falls to her back, rolling around. Smiling at her cute gesture, I get up and sit next to her, petting her tummy. Suddenly it dawns on me, it is that awkward moment when… the realization hits, I have been trained by my cat.
“I had been told that the training procedure with cats was difficult. It’s not. Mine had me trained in two days.”~Bill Dana
“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.” ― Jean Cocteau
This is Willow…
Willow wants to be in the circus!
She is not afraid of heights…
And she’s an excellent contortionist!
Willow enjoys the high-wire and acrobatics…
As well as prowling like a tiger…
AND…Willow has been practicing her “ta-da” pose!
The many antics of Willow… She is our three year old, American short haired, tortoise-shell cat. Willow enjoys making life interesting around “her” house. Always keeping us entertained and good for a laugh. These are the daily activities that keep her going. She does not lay still for long and is very vocal. We love having her as part of our “Three Ring Circus” or maybe WE are part of her’s!
