This reminds me of that time I bought Storm a collar. I had moved to my current apartment, and since it's on the 4th floor, I was somewhat worried Storm would fall of the balcony (he can be rather clumsy when walking over narrow ledges), so I bought him a beautiful red collar. Much like in this week's cartoon, though it didn't have a heart-shaped tag with his name on it. Now that I think about it, perhaps he would have liked it more if it had. Unfortunately, he hated the collar. When I put it on him (which was a bit of a struggle), he crouched on the floor, as if something extremely heavy was on his back. In the end I gave up and put chicken wire all around the balcony. So now when I am enjoying a cup of coffee on my balcony, I feel like I am sitting in a chicken coop. Ah well, anything for the cat.....

Couch Time

Actually, I do appreciate my couch time with Storm a lot. It usually also marks the end of my 'working day', I get to relax a bit. And what better to relax with than a fuzzy cat? Well, perhaps a fuzzy cat and a glass of red wine, depending on the time of day of course. But still, the cat is most important there. And, contrary to his cartoon-version, Storm seems to value our couch time as well!
