Isn’t Birdy a pretty cat? She’s sort of oddly put together (gangly legs, big, wobbly jungle belly, really long tail, lumpily shaped body), but she has such a lovely, round face. Actually, she can tuck into a very nice cat loaf and then sort of draws her head in, which is what I call the Buddha Birdy. She looks so happy and plump. I loves her.
I rewatched Fantastic Mr. Fox today, and the lone wolf at the end reminded me of Beany. All majestic and mysterious. (Except when she’s upside down.) (p.s. — My favorite part of the entire movie is when the wolf lifts its fist into the air.)
After lunch yesterday, I stopped at the Seward Co-op to grab some yogurt and peruse their bakery case. Yeah, I’m definitely going to de-sugar a bit when I get back to the Hinckley house on Monday. I chose a chocolate chip chai muffin — because how often do you run into one of those? This was a real muffin, like what you’d wind up with if you baked a batch at home with normal muffin ingredients. Not too sweet and with a denser, almost slightly-gluten-y crumb. I love me a Tobies muffin, but those guys are just unfrosted cupcakes with fruit inside.
Slightly grainy photo, because the light was getting low. The dogs and I were discussing the pros and cons of dog dinner, whether they should have dog food for dog dinner, and whether that dog food for dog dinner should be in their dog dishes. The general feeling towards the topic was positive, although both dogs thought there was too much discussion of the issues and not enough action being taken.
