Kittens! Yes, the cats do enjoy the short summers in Ottawa and the Humane Society fills up with kittens. It’s probably not the answer Sally Russick of the Studio Sublime would have guessed, but hey that’s why we do this!
Now in your best Bob Barker: “Remember to spay and neuter, do your part to control the pet population” well something to that effect, I can remember was his closing line on the Price is Right.
Really, I’m just doing my part, at 2 months old he even came neutered.
Since he is now the third kitty in the house, I joked to a friend that I had already mailed in my crazy cat lady membership! I mean, just look at that face! I have always wanted an orange cat. After seeing his photo online, I went on my own to visit - see if he was family material. I walked in to the enclosure that is about 5 x8’ with glass walls and spotted him in a pile of sleeping kittens (about 6 per enclosure). He popped his head up and a few mews later he was on my shoulder head butting my cheek and purring like a freight train.
This is our Rufus. He knows how to keep his people happy.
We also spent the week eating the most juicy and delicious Ontario peaches, so you could say it’s orange season around here.
Oh wait, I forgot this one. I'm not sure if the blue around the outside of his eyes will stay or if it's on its way out - but it is beautiful.
Now to travel around and see all sorts of seasons
