Publications and Sections
So I just launched a new publication. ALFEW.
This is to be a virtual art display publications and having different sections is important so that different types of art can be featured in different sections. Great idea, right?
So I launch into setting this publication up, just…
Gandalf did not allow Taffy to stand on ceremony with him for long. She continued to hiss and pull faces at him, but right from when he arrived, in early March of 2012, he just calmly and deliberately continued to place himself into her space. He never responded to any type of hostility — just let it be.
One of her favorite hang-outs was and is in a sunny window. Gandalf thought this was a great plan and joined her on top of the conveniently placed bookshelf, although he did manage to remain at the farthest end of it. You can see from her huffy expression that she is not totally pleased about his arrival.
Gandalf had established his total right to be on the bed from the first night he spent here. It remained his home base until he passed.
Several years ago I purchased a very inexpensive cat play tube at our local Dollar store. At first neither of the cats showed any interest. Then one day Gandalf went in it, checked it out and left. Taffy then decided the tube was safe and started to use it.
We had finished work early and my then garden helper, Marzenia, suggested we visit the Etobicoke Animal Shelter to maybe find a cat. This was because she knew how depressed our cat Taffy was at losing Dilly. and thought that we could maybe find a new companion for her.
Shortly before we moved to a new house in 2003, we adopted a chubby black cat called Jezabel.
Jezabel was disturbed by her new surroundings, especially because of our dog, Moka. She would rush around the house, with her tail held horizontally along her back, sniffing at new things and emitting short, annoyed mews. Clearly saying “This is definitely not right.”
