In both New England and Sweden, a pleasant sunny day is like a special gift, not to be squandered. One must go out and enjoy the good weather while it lasts…because, in both places, wait five minutes and it’ll change.
Take today, for example. It was raining so hard that it woke me up. Anyone who knows me, knows what a difficult thing that is to do.
But a couple of weeks ago? It was gorgeous outside, and we absolutely needed to get outside and enjoy it.
And oh, how Lorelai and Izaak enjoyed it.
The way they interact outside is so different from the way they interact inside. They are best buds, the two who grew up together, the cat show team, the “kittens.”
They play chase games in the house, but it’s taken to a whole other level when they’re outside. They are pretty evenly matched: Zak is older and heavier, but Rory is faster and sneakier.
I know we don’t have a subway to ride, or a city to explore, but we can run around free outside…and that’s a fun option to have.
Kalle captured these photos a few days ago.
Kalle has a lovechair/small sofa in his room, and the other day three cats decided it was the pefect napping spot.
Nothing to see here…just Alfred, Lorelai, Izaak…and Izaak’s mousie.
(As it turns out, Zak’s mousie is, in fact, an important member of this group.)
Have you ever seen anything as adorable as these three?
I mean, really…
…The fact that Freddy is zonked out whilst the other two are alert and watching the camera speaks volumes.
Of course, Freddy is so laid back, even that doesn’t faze him.
It’s almost as if Zak was a blanket for Freddy.
“He’s not heavy, he’s my brother.”
These photos are from May, when we first got Lorelai.
She was pretty adorable riding in Jacoby’s big yellow stroller.
First we have her ridesharing with Alfred.
He was so much bigger than she was, back then.
She was really adorable in the stroller with Freddy.
But a couple of weeks later, Rory was in the stroller with Angel.
That time, she was really working the cute. Look at her chill!
When Izaak first arrived, Alfred was polite, but reserved.
He didn’t seem to connect Zak to Logan at all, despite being only the second Singapura Freddy had ever seen in his life.
…Freddy has taken a cuddly interest in little Zakky.
While it is so reminiscent of Freddy and Logan, the “Brothers From Another Mother,” it is different, too.
So maybe…”Cousins From Another Mother”? Is that a thing? I guess if we can have identical cousins, we can have that!
