Hello Kitties, I have been away so long you may have all abandoned me. Lynettea has been so busy on the COMPUTER that I haven't been able to get a paw to the keyboard. Instead I have spent quite a bit of time lolling here and there and gathering my strength. Here is a picture of me lolling on the cool wooden floorboards.
In summer I usually take Lynettea for her walk down the street after dark. That way I can attempt to teach her a bit. She is a lamentably slow learner. Pivot and stalk with the sudden stop after a dash are not easy skills for her to learn. She hasn't learnt to use her nose at all. I try to show her by example 'sniff, sniff' at the car tyres and clumps of vegetation, but she stands there inertly, sometimes looking up at the sky and saying things like,
"That is Orion's belt and sword, Diamond. Can you see that bright star? That is Orion's faithful dog Sirius."
If I hear a dog I know to return home quickly. I make a few markings around the place on bushes and trees. If Lynettea doesn't know how to do it I have to show her. Well kitties, I hope I haven't lost all my new friends.
