IMG_4872  Turn my back for a second and the cat pounces – is she deliberately doing this?  I did get her the cat food she likes – her action is inexcusable!

Needless to say, Katerina was not the ideal puzzling companion.  In fact she delighted in rolling on the pieces, scratching herself and the puzzle pieces and pulling  the puzzle apart.  All for a bit of attention and hope for something more to eat.  Love that cat!

IMG_4732                   IMG_4733     I think Katerina approves of my purchase.  It is a  sort of blue and grey mix rag rug.  Made from selvedge scraps  from the Pendleton Woollen Mills in Oregon.  What am I doing buying a rag rug you might ask.  Well, I no longer have my Glimakra loom to weave one myself, and I guess I just plain liked it.

What better way to supervise  my dinner preparations.  I don’t know how she got up there nor how she got down.  I think I now have a cat that can fly!

IMG_4670  She thinks she’s cute – trying to get my attention – and then scatter the puzzle pieces in all directions.  She thinks it’s a wonderful game.  After a few rounds I manage to grab her without getting clawed and put her out.  Even in the rain!  Then she comes meowing outside the bedroom window at 2 a.m.  I relent, get up and let her in, meow meow…………at 4:00 a.m. she wants to go out again!  I love that cat!
