warm indoors on a cold winter day
Last week I was writing here about Cat who makes "trails" of things made out of cloth, strung mysteriously yet purposefully across my carpet.
The trail-making always takes place while I'm away, or asleep -- so I never see the trail being made, I only see it after it's done.
To clarify -- I didn't mean to leave the impression that this Cat throws stuff all over, constantly, making large messes -- an endless criss-cross of "trails." That's not the case -- she doesn't do it all the time, only on and off. She'll make a trail or two in the space of three or four days, then stop. Then a few weeks later, a couple of more trails appear....
I never object, or ask her not to do it. In fact, I compliment her cleverness, creativity, and industriousness. And I leave the trail for a while, and then pick the things up later, maybe when she's not looking.
(Nothing is ever the Cat's fault. [The rules are simple and easy to understand...])
