Contentedness Defined

Paladin naps with his favorite catnip-filled toys. His serenity is remarkable. My husband calls it “Contentedness defined,” and hence an appropriate flamboyant title, which does not disturb Paladin in the least.

Two cats and a tiny snake

A very small baby Gopher snake (center, looks like a brown cord between Effie’s and Paladin’s paws) fended its way through Effieland yesterday. Effie, a veteran of carrying a full grown Garter snake around in her mouth, and Paladin, treating the Gopher snake as a living toy, took turns carrying the snake in their mouths and playing harmlessly with it on the ground.  Eventually they freed the tiny reptile, which slithered its way to the fence. Paladin laid on top of the snake. Somehow the snake made it out of Effieland.

Paladin drinking

We have artesian well water, and Paladin sometimes likes to sip a drink of the good fresh water from the kitchen faucet. Outdoors, a bowl of water tends to collect bugs, leaves, dirt, and green slime.

Feet first!There are times when efficiency is fun. Paladin may decide it would be good to wash his feet while drinking fresh flowing water.

Paladin on perch

We bought and installed this window perch for Effie before Paladin came into our lives and home. Whether Effie is kind enough to permit Paladin perch time, or whether he simply appropriated the perch, we can’t know. All I know is that he looks as adorable and as comfortable on the perch as Effie does. They typically share things quite well.

You may view Effie on the perch here.
