Maven really likes our new house, it is big and it is messy (for now). Oh, joy!
Maven is a black smoke cat (her fur is warm in tone in the autumn, since she spends a lot of time in the sun in the summer, and the fur gets lighter), and here you can also see that the bottom half of her fur is completely white! (The silver gene makes it white). If we would shave off the tips of Maven fur, she would be mostly white! 🙂
I wrote a short story that got published on Six Sentences site. Here it is, the whole of it:
The mouse tastes good. It is crunchy and sturdy and it can be chewed for hours without deterioration of that initial feeling of satisfaction. I do not understand why you keep on choosing paper instead; my newspaper, for example, every morning, always the very page I am reading. Yes, I did chew on your mouse and I did try the paper, I am not just saying! The mouse is much better, and I stand firmly behind that statement; I am actually willing to take a lie detector test if you do not believe me. Yes, we may have different preferences, but I can read and you can’t, so, please, let me read my newspaper in peace and go and chew on your mouse, or – learn how to read and then we can discuss this issue again.
Inspired by Maven.
I love this picture Jocke took; Maven is playing with one of her mouse toys. That cat is fast.
