This weekend brought a real spring day to our part of the country. Though the temperatures are supposed to decrease somewhat later this week, and the skies are predicted to rain, it looks like the new season is at last here, a month after the calendar said it had arrived.
No one in the Cosy Apartment is happier about this than Hector. Though he doesn’t try to get outside, he nonetheless clearly misses some aspects of the wider world, and when the windows and door open to their screens, he hurries over to sniff and watch what he will.
The dark knight spent hours lying by the door to the concrete ditch, comfy on the carpeted ledge or lowest platform of the near by cat-tree, listening to and tracking the birds, watching the neighbours, hearing all the sounds and, no doubt best of all, smelling all the fresh scents of the new springtide.
The trees aren’t even in bud yet, but soon greenery will be everywhere, and early blooms will blossom. And, while pleased to be inside and safe, Hec will be just as pleased to be as much a part of the season as he can, perhaps glad to share the best of both worlds, inside and out.
