Summer time ... when the living is easy :) as per one of my favorite female bluesy rockers, Janis Joplin.
Today is a glorious day in Toronto. Bright, sunny, warm (expected high of 24C).
And, for those facing the day to day working grind ... it's Friday!
Kitty Cat, my Black Persian X, aka Isis aka Rasputin aka Cat aka Billa aka Little Beast has been enjoying his freedom ... the balcony door is finally open ... and he can race around outside.
He's actually a big chicken. Totally afraid of the outdoors. However, once he realized that he could hang on the balcony without anyone else being able to get near ... he was in heaven.
No more cuddling with me at night, nope not him. He's out there exploring. Of course, any noise, like the thunder we had yesterday, sends him racing inside, skidding across the floor, in a panic! lol Poor little guy! He's getting there though, slowly building up his courage. In another month all will be cool in his world.
He's a rescued cat. The local Animal Shelter found him severely traumatized, frozen, and starving in mid-winter. He was a young guy then, estimated age 3. I bought him in July. Whatever happened to him created a deep fear of being outside, particularly when it's cold.
I've had him now for 5 years, he's mellowed, become The Boss, and is generally pretty happy, but the old fears occasionally come up.
Cat's outside sunning on the balcony...
Now, I'm trying to decide what I want to do to maximize my enjoyment of this exceptionally lovely day.
