A Friend Indeed
Way back at the end of January I wrote A Friend In Need. And it’s taken all of that time for Zazou to find her way into our life, but now here she is, in all of her funny-faced, crooked-tail glory. I’ve been waiting to unveil her, waiting to be sure that Beppo agrees with our choice. But now that she’s been here for 48 hours, I think she’s ours.
She’s only 7 weeks old, perhaps a bit young to be suddenly surrounded by strangers. She likes to eat right from my fingers (or maybe that’s just because she’s a chef’s cat, given to us by a restauranteur) and she’s very interested in Beppo, even when he’s trying to have a peaceful nap.
She’s also majorly full of mischief
and has a tail-pouncing fetish. Beppo has a very beautiful tail which Zazou evidently finds irresistable
but if she can’t get to his tail she’ll pounce any available part.
Beppo has been known to box her ears lightly under these circumstances, but all in all it looks to us like a happy cat family in the making.
Beppo, I’m sorry it took us so long to find you a friend, but I think this is going to be true love, the kind worth waiting for. Just keep your tail tucked in and your heart open, and ça va aller, ça va très bien aller.
