George just chillin’
George keeps himself busy – when he’s not guarding
us against whatever it is that lives at the bottom of the stairs,
he is playing with a variety of things – sometimes things
intended for cats to play with, but more often than not pieces
of chopped vegetable that have escaped the chopping board, or
bits of twigs or feathers that he’s brought in.
He still does his thing – whatever it is he’s playing
with – of catching and cupping it in his paw, then smacking
it with the other paw so he can chase it. And he still plays football
with the little rubber ball that rebounds off the walls, passing
it back to whoever is playing with him.
And, of course, sometimes he does the cat thing of manically
tearing round the house for no reason whatsoever…
But when he’s done all of that, he is very good at relaxing,
as these pictures show. The brilliant one of him lying on the
kitchen floor and looking straight at the camera was of course
taken by my niece Katy, and not by me!
