Yesterday after chess class, Jim and I went to Vista to visit his mom and her boyfriend. As we arrived we were treated to the start of what I thought was going to be a most spectacular sunset. Indeed it was.

They have two cats that they got in March 2009 after their previous two black cats died within weeks of each other. Buddy, the orange tabby, is a carefree, happy-go-lucky cat. I’ve been able to pick him up, hold him, pet him, since day one. Suzy, a black cat, rarely even let me see her. In those 4½ years, I saw her on top of the refrigerator once, behind the washer and dryer once, under the bed many times, and under the couch or other chairs many other times. Only last March did she allow me to get close enough to even touch her. Last night she was under a chair and let me pet her, which I did for about five minutes. As she got comfortable with my touch, she stuck her head and front legs out from under the chair. I quickly pulled her out the rest of the way, put her on my lap, and proceeded to give her a little love for ten minutes. Then she took off to the garage to hide under the car….

Great sunsets, fun relatives, beautiful cats, and barbecue at Famous Dave’s made for a great, late Thanksgiving meal.

    Spectacular display of colors there, thank you for sharing.

    My mother has a cat that only she can pet and who sits on the back of her recliner. The look in the cats eyes is a dare like “I dare you to pet me.” I have never accepted that dare.
