Up Close in Black and White Feline Friday Fill-Ins

Catching the early morning whiffs and sniffs...

What can I smell? It's hard to explain to a human but out in my catio I get a whiff of everything. Mum says she does too because she has a heightened sense of smell for a human but Mum, you will never smell what I smell. Frankly, you wouldn't want to because you're vegan :)

I saw a baby mousie in the garden yesterday. I was indoors looking out of the patio door. I got frustrated because I couldn't catch it. 🐁

Mum came into the room and looked out at it and started saying it's cute. Why? I was thinking it would make a good meal and I wanted to gift it to her. 

I know she wouldn't like it. But cute? I'm the only cute one around here!

The mousie ran around the garage wall and probably hid behind the shed next to it. 

A few minutes later I saw a ginger cat from our street on our garden wall. I wonder if he'd got a whiff of mousie too. Then he jumped off the wall into the street. Perhaps he caught mousie when I wasn't looking?

I went to Mum and gave her my bestest loving pining gaze and it worked because she gave me some Bozita Chicken  and I was satisfied 😻

Here's a sweet Instagram video of Mum and me for Feline Friday.

Beautiful photo of you. Mom totally understands the smelling thing since we are all scent hounds and do scent sports. She is amazed at how we can smell, but also amazed at how rotten human noses are.

Athena, tell your momma that there are support groups for empaths...folks who can feel other's emotions, and how to deal with it! They've helped me; ask her to reach out and I can give her the one that I find especially good: a FB group.

Athena, I love this photo of you. Look at that adorable nose! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! Marie, I am like you and plan on starting to write more blog posts ahead of time. I used to be better about that, but then started slacking off, so now I need to get back on track. I also plan on getting art and other writing projects done far more in advance. Pretty much, I need to plan my life out better. Athena, you better believe everything about you is pure purrfection!
