Mostly, though, I've been hanging out on the rug in the photo above, staying low where it's cool. Although the weather has cooled quite a bit from last weekend's extreme heat. I like being a cool cat.

As of right now, not quite 9am, all the windows are open as far as they go. Next, mom'll start turning on our fans. Then we'll darken the cottage as much as possible.
To make matters worse, there are forest fires happening all around us. If you haven't heard already, nearly the entire Pacific Northwest is on fire. MAJOR fires happening in Oregon and Washington, fires likely still happening in British Columbia, and of course, California, where fires are very close to Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. As well as skirting the Los Angeles basin.
And then there are the hurricane and monsoon floods in Texas, Louisiana, and South Asia.
I sit on my perch in the window here and think about these things...it all makes me very sad.
I'm also sad because I lost a never-met online feline friend this week, Tophey. He was a beautiful Abyssinian cat who lived in Seattle with his humans. He was young adult and in excellent health. He died for no apparent reason. Mom and I have been thinking about him for days...pondering the reality that life is precious and precarious. We never know when our loved ones will make their exit.
So, especially since I recently had one foot in the grave but miraculously came back, mom and I are staying really close together, physically, emotionally and spiritually, for as long as we can.
Peace, and love.

Dr. Kris did my ultrasound on Thursday, and although he found two potential trouble spots in my innards, neither of them seem as though they'll kill me off anytime soon. Whew, I think I just dodged a bullet or two.
I've even begun to regain a bit of muscle strength, so I'm more active again than I was a few weeks ago when all these medical issues started showing up. And of course mom is taking such good care of me that I'm happy and feeling better.
I hope you'll stay with me as I continue my journey into old-cathood. I'll have my less-good days, I'm sure, but I'll be here until the end.
