Thanks for popping in. I watched Ragnar today, one of our little Viking boys, sleeping soundly in the kitchen. Did he care that it was 11 in the morning? Nope, did he heck! They sleep when they want, they sleep where they want. They eat when they want too. They sit by the kitchen door when they want to go out, they pose at the kitchen window when they want to come back in.
Sometimes Erik and Ragnar have a nap together. They preen and clean each other. Other times they torment each other. Well actually, Erik the Red is the tormenter; Ragnar Lothbrok mostly walks away. Except when he doesn’t – and then the fur do fly!
Sometimes, one lies in wait for the other one – really high up on the kitchen cupboard…and there he sits, waiting patiently. In the meantime, the other one’s fully aware of what his brother is up to, and hangs out in front of the telly with us!
We had a close shave with Erik last year, when he nearly lost his back leg. But I am überhappy to report that leg No. 4 is pretty much fully healed. Sometimes he is a little over-zealous, and then I catch him twitching out and limping a little, but then I know that feeling now too! Mind you, at least we can tell them apart now!
Grace got me a cute teddy when I was in hospital. Primarily because whenever she’s been in hospital I’ve always brought her a teddy or cuddly toy. Right from when she was a nipper in Sacramento, through to when she had neck surgery in New York a couple of years ago. She has kept them all. So here was my company in hospital – Erik was quite smitten too!
Erik and Ragnar are quite probably the best thing to have come into our lives since lockdown. I never knew what a cat woman I was until these two rocked up!
Want to see then when they were tiny?
I will be forever grateful to our dear friends Gina B (Button Specialist extraordinaire )and Mark for trusting us to give them a good home. They have changed our lives – for the better.
