For International Cat Day, here’s a photo of Blanca, a kitten I rescued from the local shelter back in March. For a while, she would hop up onto the star railing and entertain herself by swatting at her tail. One morning a few months back I heard her, grabbed a camera and made several frames. She slipped and fell a few weeks back, catching herself on the edge of the carpet and hauling herself back up, before falling all the way to the first floor. I haven’t observed her engaging in this behavior since. A lesson learned perhaps. One life down, eight to go.
