[The Wisdom of a Distracted Mind] She owns it.

Queen, castle, etc.

She may be deaf. She be kind of blind. She may even not have much of a clue about anything as she wobbles around her world sniffing things with her whistling nose and mewling whatever questions she has.

However, one thing is for certain: this is her house.

Thankfully, she's friendly, and she'll always welcome you in by bumping up against you and leaning against your shin while sniffing your shoes to find out where you've been, who you've been seeing and what you've been doing.

Don't worry. She even does this to DogCat. She's pretty unfriendly to him outside of the house, and she'll hiss at him as though he's an unwanted intruder (she also hisses at sticks, leaves and cracks in the sidewalk, so he tends to humor her and avoid her silliness). However, when he's inside the house, she'll walk up to him and lean against him as though she's a drunken college chick having a hard time keeping herself vertical. And, DogCat will stop whatever he's doing and sit in place while she props herself up.

Make no mistake, though. This is her house.

  1. It's surprising how many cats are homeowners! Our deed may be in our name, but the cat is the true owner of any home (ours included).


  2. We don't have a pet but our garden seems to be home to every damn cat in the neighbourhood!

  3. I can't help but be reminded of  those concret lion statues you see at entry and
    driveways.  You betchya she rules!!!!
