Sasha, our tiger-striped kitten, sleeps on the power bricks of our computer equipment. She loves doing it because they’re warm.
As soon as Sasha arrived in our home, Felix befriended her. As she grew up, they were the best of friends. Even though Felix was a tomcat, Sasha would often try to suckle from him and of course there was nothing to be gotten. Still, out of love for her, he tolerated it. He’d often get up after a suckling session, his fur all wet on one side of his body.
The music is “Opus 118, No. 2, Intermezzo in A. Major” by Johannes Brahms, interpreted by Carlos Gardels. The track is public domain, obtained from MusOpen.org.
Sasha was recuperating after being spayed and we played together with my wooden train set. She caused five “train accidents” as she pawed at them. Adorable!
They love to sleep together in cold weather. They curl up in their little bed and start purring (Bubu starts snoring) and they keep each other warm.
Watch Sasha’s pupils dilate and contract as she reacts to sounds and movements within the room.
Our four cats love to sleep, as all cats do. What we think sets them apart though, is their preference for sleeping together, particularly in colder weather. Here are a few photos. Aren’t they adorable?
Warmer, sunny weather is finally here and our medieval cats can’t wait to spend time outside, lounging about in the garden or the yard, climbing trees, rooftops — all the fun things they love to do! Whereas before they begged to come inside and sleep, now they won’t even hear of it. They’re outside, romping about.
Here’s Sasha in a tree.
Here’s the tree that Sasha was climbing (it’s in the background).
Bubu looks over his domain (the garden).
Tira loves to relax just about anywhere. Here, she’s doing it in the garden.
Bubu loves to sit underneath our MINI.
Bubu loves to play with sticks. He wraps his huge, sharp claws around them and starts chewing them up. He’s going to grow into a big tabby, I can tell.
The wooden house you see in the background of this last photo is their home. I’ll have more on that in a future post.
Here we will write of the adventures of four wise cats — Sasha, Zuzu, Tira and Bubu — who live in the medieval city of Medias, in the heart of Transilvania, Romania.
