There are times when I feel like a bad pet owner; when I can’t really be bothered with an attention-seeking cat or when I leave him home alone over-night. I can’t even begin to imagine the levels of guilt I’d be engendering if I had a child, considering how guilty even a cat can make me feel!
Still, he is fed every day and has clean water in his bowl, so that’s a good starting point, right? And we go out into the garden together every day – and some days we go a bit further…
That’s my house in the middle of the picture… This morning I took the cat out for a walk down by the bog/lake behind the garden; he doesn’t like crossing the open field from the back of the garden down to the bushes by the lake, but once we’re down there he absolutely loves it!
There are things to sniff, trees to climb, water to almost fall into and basically everything a little cat could wish for!
This is when I feel that I might be an okay cat owner; he doesn’t get perfection all the time, but there are times when I definitely deliver quality of life to my little Loke. And today has been a good day for him, I think; a morning walk down by the lake, and now he’s sitting on my shoulder, insisting that I should stop paying attention to the laptop and start paying attention to HIM!
Okay, I give up… I have to go pet a cat now… Here’s one final picture from this morning’s walk:
