So I decided to change our cat’s name. “Danny” just doesn’t fit our Siberian. After much back and forth, I decided on “Yuri.” As in Yuri Zhivago, one of my favorite characters.
No resemblance at all, I know. 🙂 Yuri’s not answering to it yet, but hopefully will in time.
I can’t get over his tail. It’s so long and full! He holds it straight up when he goes down the stairs, which looks so funny to me.
Right now, Yuri’s favorite place to sleep is my lap. That’s fine now that we’re having cool weather, but it’s going to be too hot this summer.
Haven’t brought out the big Canon yet, so these were taken with the iPhone. I tried to get Yuri used to the vacuum cleaner, but he still hates it. Hopefully that won’t be the case with the camera.
I’m constantly surprised at how different cats and dogs are. There’s no way Rocky would have gotten up on the kitchen counters. Or the dining room table, etc. etc. Every time I think I’ve cat-proofed the house, Yuri finds something else to get into.
It’s not a good thing to look into a dog’s eyes (a sign of aggression) but Yuri often stares into my eyes very intently while purring (see first photo) then puts his paw on my shoulder. It’s the funniest thing. I don’t know if he’s claiming ownership or devotion. 🙂
Great weekend, everyone!
