The Cat Inside



“The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself. Of course he wants care and shelter. You don’t buy love for nothing.”
William S. Burroughs, The Cat Inside







Poor, old Quincey, if only you knew how much he adores you. To him every small affection you share brightens his day in ways you and I can only imagine. He’ll grow older and his touch will grow gentler, but his love for you will still be all-encompassing. Sometimes love is tough… if you’re an old cat.

If you’re a cat person, I highly recommend reading The Cat Inside by William S. Burroughs. It’s a treat.

Everybody loves Olav

Olav is our adopted fish. He used to have a girlfriend, but unfortunately she passed ages ago. Olav originally lived with some Norwegian friends, but they moved back to Norway and so he ended up with us.

_DSC0774_web _DSC0779_webOlav is a robust, social little guy. He likes company and doesn’t mind that it’s a cat. Hedda doesn’t drink anything other than water from Olav’s bowl. Lately our other cat has taken to the same habit. Hedda will sit and watch Olav, and he will swim up to say hi when she drinks. They seem to have some sort of odd friendship going.

_DSC1227_web _DSC1228_webAnakin likes Olav too. So much that he thought he deserved the entire box of fish food at once a few days ago. Needless to say Olav needed a bit of rescuing, but as always he bounces back.

Everybody loves Olav.
