The reason it's a bit harder to read and review as regularly right now is because we have a new addition to our family.
On Sunday we picked up our new cat, Belle, from a rescue centre. 1 years old, she possibly had a car accident and ended up with broken leg, broken pelvis (needed pinning), abdomen wound. She's recovered from the operations...but fur needs to grow back, she needs to build up muscle etc. We also think from her behaviour here that she never belonged in a home. She likes to hide a lot, under the bed and on the stairs. If anyone goes near her, she gets really friendly, loves cuddles and having her tummy tickled. I've been spending a lot of time with her. I sat with her on the stairs, just with her on my lap, purring while I read. If I don't pay her enough attention she'll nudge the book to remind me to keep stroking her.
Sometimes she can be quite jumpy, and doesn't want to come and join us. So we go to her. Tonight I'd planned to cook pasta...I ended up grabbing something quick because when I popped upstairs to say hi (she was back in the bedroom), she decided to come and be friendly. So for a while she's going to need a lot of TLC which has me away from both book and computer.
Having had cats who we raised since they were kittens, it is quite different having a rescue cat. Thankfully I have had a little experience with a reluctant cat, and one who spooks easily. So it isn't entirely strange.
I was putting up a review tonight, but Nelle ventured in and chose me as her lap of the night. She's lying on one arm as well as my lap, so I'm finishing this now.
