I return from Fairbanks to find Pistol-Yero with Triscuit crackers



Very lazy entry tonight. No story. Technically crummy photo. See, I just got back from a quick trip to Fairbanks. Left yesterday, drove through nerve-wracking snow-storm. Attended birthday party for a matriarch of the Gwich'in Nation, who had just turned 100.

Got almost no sleep. Visited a bit in Fairbanks. Saw no cat. Drove back home; weather good this time. Sat on couch. Saw Pistol and Triscuit crackers. Tryskuit Kracker is in New York City, where she found a well-cared for street cat and told me how I could find it when I go to NYC the week after next.

There was almost no light to take picture of Pistol and Triscuit, especially with this pocket camera. Took picture anyway. Here it is. Tomorrow, I will resume my story telling.

You drove by yourself? I am happy your shoulder has really improved.
I read the other stories too and I was like dont we all find it hard coping with our cats behaviour?

We just relocated to a new place and my cats are behaving so strangely now. They only come out of hiding when am the only one around. Will try and blog abt this come tuesday

I did drive by myself.

Here are pictures from the drive:

No matter how much one learns about cats, there is always more to learn. Mostly, what I had to learn was to let cats decide for themselves.

Hopefully, your cats will soon adjust. It seems to work that way.
