What an amazing weekend! I am surrounded by 5 species who are giving me so much attention. It will soon go to my head!! I’m telling you, pet sitting is not difficult here, that’s for sure! I am getting all the lovin’ a girl can ask for…
I am getting kisses, getting nudged and cuddled and THAT is not something to take for granted. No sireee; plus they do not expect anything from me except loving them. Only pets can really give you that unconditional kind of love (except for my mom of course).
And since I do enjoy the quietness of the country, just birds, occasional car…I can reap this type of environment and write or read at my heart`s content. No disturbances whatsoever. If one of the pooches need to go out, they stand up, move around a little to show that they are alive but no barking or whimpering on their part. Nope, they sure are amazing!!
And the felines are just as amazing. GiGi the grey little one will jump on the kitchen counter so I can run some water for her but I don`t let her do that. Their master have tried to wean her off that habit. I just fill up her dish with “fresh” water right next to the sink and she loves it.
My heart does go out to Bill, though as he is sore. Yep, his joints are aching alright and I can so relate some days. He has eyes that make you want to weep and cuddle him, but not too hard so as not to hurt the little fella.
The girls are pretty nice…so gentle considering their size! Mornings they nudge their noses on my bed to tell me “they gotta GO!” but they don`t whine…they patiently wait. Amazing!!!
Now Shabby, he is so adorable with one green eye and one blue eye. He tried to run away last year but I got his number this year and I check him much better. For some reason,he seems to like me more and wants to stick around and comes close to me so I can pet him…both felines let me hold them for more than a minute. Well, GiGi is a suckee alright, she just enjoys being held and petted.
So that`s how I start the first half of my weekend…Canada Day weekend here. My friends in Toronto are also celebrating Gay Pride and I wish I could see that amazing parade they have every year on Yonge Street…it is a sight to see!!
But for now, I am just as content relaxing with my friends. CL
