This photo was taken at the same time as the Double Mint photo I posted last week. I think it was my snapping away at the sleeping Candy and Sugar that invited Cricket and John to join us. I loved Sugar's tummy, with spots in both black and red. You can see a few of the all-black spots on Candy's tummy, too.
I visited Sweetie at the shelter on my way home from piano lesson yesterday afternoon. She's in a cage in the "sick" section, finishing up 10 days of antibiotics for that sneezing I noticed last time. The disadvantage of being there is that she is separated from other cats and has a more confined space, and also that people are more hesitant about adopting cats who are over there.
Aside: I adopted Cricket from the sick area of her shelter. That shelter had the rule that once you entered the sick area you didn't return to the general floor. If there was no room in foster care, that was the end of the road for you. I do NOT like shelters that have those kinds of policies. Fortunately for both of us, that was not the end of Cricket's road.
The advantage of being sick at Sweetie's shelter is that you get fed canned food, which is clearly her preference. She looked much better than when I saw her last visit, and we enjoyed a little around-the-bars snuggle. Fingers crossed for when she goes back to the main adoption floor.
One of my assignments for piano lesson next week is La Cinquantine, arranged as a (piano) duet with my fellow student. I mentioned that the tune is commonly found in an arrangement for intermediate cellists, as well. So I have the additional assignment of preparing it on the cello in a minor, if it's not already, to play with the piano accompaniment. That should be fun. And my new routine is to stop and visit Sweetie on the way home from lessons, hoping each time I will find she has been adopted.
It's Tummy Tuesday. To see more of the (feline) sunny-side-up variety, visit LisaViolet.
