Pets' antics make me laugh
However Eleia has a new game.
She crawls underneath it, and, convinced she's quite invisible, peeks out from one end. You can see the concentration in her eyes. Every time I see her under this mat I have to laugh.
Lately she's shown a great deal of creativity in finding ways to play and get rid of all that energy she has. She doesn't like getting her feet wet and way too many days it's been raining instead of snowing. Snow doesn't seem to stop her... but rain? high winds? This girl isn't going out.
What a crew I have.
Christopher is the boss of the house, though Eleia is trying to take over and they have recently developed their own wrestlemania game. Noses to each other then a paw up and knocking an ear, then a growl and into full wrestle rolling on the ground...
Christopher also keeps Oiler in line. He is Bliss and Spirit's brother, from the same litter and lives down the road coming to visit to cadge a treat or a walk. But Christopher terrifies him. The black cat stands between Oiler and the front door, staring him down. You can see from his intent look in this picture that he can be pretty intimidating if he wishes.
All in all, the animals in my life have always given me a great deal of pleasure, discipline because I must walk and feed them, and laughter. Their antics give me great joy -
Hope you find things in your life today that give you great joy - maybe your pets? or the birds you watch? or your family or friends? There is lots in life to bring laughter, joy and pleasure if we are open to it I think.
