    We call it “litter time,” because it started when Genevieve and Ouli would run out of the apartment when we went to go put their shit down the chute. Now, it’s something they both look forward to every day. They cry for it. Eloise has yet to venture out but these two can’t get enough…

    We took Genevieve to the vet today. She did incredibly well, letting the technicians handle her and all. She’s overweight and needs to be on a diet, has a small laceration on her right thigh that’ll hopefully heal on its own, and she got the fur around her butt shaved to prevent shit from sticking…

    This girl always makes her wishes known. I’ve never seen her sleep like this before. It when I see the cats like this that I feel that they are at peace.

    I don’t know what’s out there, but Ouli and Genevieve keep begging to “go for a walk” in the hallway. Ouli will jump up on the shoe rack and Genevieve will claw at the door while whining. I can’t figure out what’s out there.

    If you could make your pet understand one thing, what would it be? I would love for our cats to understand how we display love and affection. We, of course, being people.

Incidentally, all three cats were born on the very same day. They’re not related. My favourite animal, however, might just be the elephant. I think I…

    I woke up on the couch at 4:00 am and made my way to bed. At 7:00 the cats wanted breakfast. I tried going back to sleep. I almost started missing the days when I would sleep clean through the morning and into the middle of the afternoon.

    Is there a difference between a productive day and a busy day? I think I had a productive day today but it didn’t feel so busy. Yesterday, I felt busy but not productive. I think it all comes down to having a schedule.

    Restless nights, summer aspirations, online orders, cat introductions, and the anticipation of getting things done. A glimpse into the journey ahead.

    When I’m writing my morning pages, Eloise usually joins me. She gets in my way, nibbles gnaws at my hand, and swats at my pen. Sometimes, she’ll spill the coffee as I’m raising the mug to my mouth. Lately, Genevieve has been joining in. She, too, is looking for some attention. Honestly, there aren’t many…
