The saga of Frankie in the kitchen continues. He moved from the toaster to the other countertop. But now he has returned to the side where I use the toaster and French coffee press. He has taken up residence in the basket where I (used to) ripen the avocados. He does still go out on the front balcony to bask in the sun. And a few days ago he started venturing into the rest of the house again. But after running around the living room and bathroom he races back to his basket in the kitchen.
For Thanksgiving I bought a poinsettia for myself and a friend (in appreciation of the wonderful Thanksgiving dinner she invited me to). I took the plants out of their paper shields. Freddie and Frankie immediately pounced on them. Frankie ducked inside one while Freddie decided to stay outside to play and observe. By the time I gave the poinsettia to my friend, both the paper shields were in shreds. She is a cat person so she understood.
As soon as I sit down at my desk Freddie comes along and blocks my view of the computer monitor. He has an obsession with sleeping between my keyboard and the monitor. I get mad at him and try to push him to the side… again and again and again. Eventually he gets tired of this and moves to the blanket I have draped over the back of my chair. He doesn’t look too comfortable there but as long as I’m sitting in the chair he seems to enjoy sleeping there.
