Torrie, our Warrior Princess

This is Torrie, our warrior princess. I’ve previously shown you her supervising my knitting in the evening. In the daytime, she is in charge of much more, including defending the homestead. Torrie is a gymnast, able to hang from the cat tree and sharpen her claws at the same time. She is both fit and fearless.

As part of the adoption agreement with Siamese Rescue, our cats are to be indoor cats only. (That would be our personal preference, too.) Sometimes we can see a hawk circling over the lake, and I say “See, Torrie? That’s why you’re an indoors cat.” DH adds “That poor hawk wouldn’t know what he was getting a hold of!”

Well, with that background knowledge, look at what caught Torrie’s eye at the living room window. That’s a gecko, and they are fairly common in Louisiana. When he moves just a slight bit, he catches Torrie’s eye, and she dashes to the window, chattering and muttering and pawing the glass. Mr. gecko should be glad she’s an indoor warrior princess!

On a personal note, I’m spending much of my time at the hospital with DH. He was admitted with diverticulitis two days ago. There is talk of surgery after the antibiotics do their work, but no decision has been finalized. Keep us in your prayers, please.

Update:  he will have surgery Thursday (the surgeon’s preference) or Friday.

    Oh fun. I’m sorry.Do they have him on metronidizole? If he’s on it long enough to get the metallic taste, tell him it’s okay, it goes away when you stop taking it.

    I love your gecko!
