We’ve rearranged the living room a bit. We’re using the fireplace now, so I moved some of the furniture so it faces – or is at least angled toward – the fireplace and the warmth and the ever-changing collage of glowing embers and dancing flames.
Scratchy likes this time of year, and he especially loves this loveseat because it’s closest to the warmth. Perfect spot for napping.
And his companion? That’s Zulu, a wild African Dog, adopted from the local zoo. Usually he hangs out in Julia’s room, but this evening he was snoozing on the couch. Scratchy thought about reminding Zulu that cozy spots by the fire do, by long tradition, belong to cats, not dogs…but Zulu’s teeth showed occasionally while he snored, so Scratchy, whose teeth are certainly sharp but nowhere near as big, decided that sharing was much nicer than bleeding.
And they snoozed happily ever after. The end.
