Communiqué from Coco, the Community Cat

I is being watching the snow go from this …

Snowing again

… to this

One last snow-shower

… to this …

That’s just sad

… Now, is mah job …

… to watch the rain fall



For the newcomers to my blog, (Welcome!) Coco the Community cat adopted us after Widdercat died a few year ago. Actually Coco wanted to adopt us the minute we moved in but Widdercat would have none of it. Two fluffy Grande Dames going at it hammer-and-tongs, fur a-flying, all hissy and spitty, is a sight to behold, but not to be repeated, so Coco was hugged and cuddled when we went for walks, but studiously ignored when we were at home.

After Widdercat , we decided our lives were too transient (and dealing with the home owners association politics as lowly renters too futile) to give another cat a forever home. (we intend to have gazillions of them when we next move to our forever home. It’s been Mrs Widds and my experience that our cat companions have always found us at the right time)

In the absence of fur-fights Coco decided that, as absurd as our decision was, she would respect it and invited herself into our lives for cuddles, pats, and ‘now let me out’ visits.

We’re not the only cat-orphans she’s adopted. The four houses at our end of the driveway are all blessed by her Most High Fluffyness.

So, my finest Winter, to date, (3 months of snow on the ground) is now done and we are back to our usual Spring, Autumn, and Winter, rainforest-y climate – rain.

  1. Coco is a beauty. I love how sometimes cats adopt us instead of us adopting them. We are finally all rain and more rain now too. It is mid-March after all.

  9. I can’t get over how green it is under the snow. Was it that same color before the snow? Should I ever go to a snowy place, I’m going to find a nice spot to dig and see what the ground looks like under the snow. Just call me a bit obsessed. It would be a lot if I asked the Husband to drive me to the mountains pronto. lol

      Yep, it’s really that green. It looked a bit pale and wan right after the snow melted, (probably ‘freezer burn’ after being underneath it for so long) but it didn’t take too long to go all emerald-y again. A benefit of living in a rain-forest, a gazillion shades of green. 🙂


  10. Aw. 🙂 I love it when they choose us. I can’t imagine a life without my animals. They bring the most wonderful energy into my day.

    It’s a huge honour being adopted by a cat. I hope you’re being suitably subservient to Coco.

    That’s quite a life she has there – turns up for a bit of spoiling and then moves on to the next place. 🙂

    Well, I thought the snow was done here too but this morning we got hammered with it unexpectedly.
