Joie de vivre

Grass, delicious grass

This is truly a photo that speaks for itself.

These are pots of grass I planted for Kanoko — real wheat seeds I found in the seed for sprouts section of an organic grocery market here (Diététique Malausséna). This way I have a big bag of seeds that I can replant as often as needed. Kanoko loves his pots of grass: he’ll sit on them and enjoy himself.

Today I got Kanoko a harness, and am delighted — he understood it wasn’t a toy after just two “no”s when he tried playing with the lead, and then trotted around the apartment building hallway without a problem. As soon as he’s less wary of the hallway we’ll venture further. Malo abhorred the harness I tried on him as a kitten… even after several patient, gentle tries he would wail and fight it so energetically that I could never get the lead on. It’s great that Kanoko seems to accept a harness! I would love to walk him on weekends.

    Cats, especially kittens, are one of the best things in life.

    Our Maine Coon cat Simon died on Friday. It was sudden. My heart is broken.

    Oh no!! It’s so hard when it’s sudden, you have no time to prepare and then they’re gone… that was the hardest for me with Malo. And now that I know how utterly sweet Maine Coons are (Malo was sweet, but good grief, Kanoko is the most adorably affectionate kitten I’ve ever had), I can only imagine how much you must miss Simon :/

    Fergus adored wearing the harness and going exploring. He would quiver with happiness when I got it out and leao up to the door. Now, H and R can go out all day in their very large enclosure but before them I walked Fergus for hours.
    I’d be afraid of dogs though if I was walking a cat outside. He looks like such a treasure.

    your precious little Kanoko is a heaven incarnate.Cats always fasinates me most with their melancholy gaze and mysterious temperament.
