Going against the grain

Going against the grain

My cat Foxy is small, but fiercely independent. She knows what she likes when she likes it.

For this afternoon nap, she chose to sleep crossways in this cat basket with one ear completely covered, even though, clearly, the right way to do it was just the opposite. But who is to say which might be more suitable for her?

I learn a lot, watching my cats.

Men wanted for hazardous journey.
Small wages, bitter cold. Long months off complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful. Honor and recognition in case of success.

~Sir Earnest Henry Shackleton~

    Shackleton’s job description was certainly accurate. I always wonder what kind of person could be interested in an adventure like that. But then, I wonder, who would volunteer for the trip to Mars with no hope of return at all? Especially when you can’t take your kitties with you!

    Cats are interesting creatures.

    I had to comment when I saw the Shackleton quote. One of my favorite non-fiction books of all time was Endurance.
