Qatteri Cat’s Amusement

This week, my window washers were back, but this time they did not catch me by surprise! I had read the notice posted by the elevator, and closed my sheers so that they couldn’t look in and see me blogging.


The Qatteri Cat, however, thought this was great stuff. He yearns to be an outdoor cat. He remembers the early street life, and then the green garden he called his own, and the occasional escape over the wall and down to visit the neighbors. In his innermost cat nature, he wants to be free to roam, free to follow his cat nature.

So this morning, the window washers provided great excitement in his hum-drum contained life. The window washers stopped briefly to “Miao” at him and tap the window to tease him a little – great fun, if you are a cat. I could hear his loud purring from ten feet away!

  1. Hey, people watching is one of my favorite sports, too – and I’m only feline in nature, not actually a cat :-)!

  2. I love their curiosity! Our cat used to jump in and sit right in the middle of us and he had to run into our room whenever he heard a noise.

  6. QC has four “babies” – three bear and a sheep. Sometimes, to keep him on his toes, we put them in funny places. You can almost see him thinking “that’s just not right” although it is really hard to figure out what is “right” to a cat with a tiny brain. šŸ˜‰
