Daily Photo: Emeraude’s Adventures

Lady Emeraude has been busy exploring her new realm.

Thanks to the many readers who’ve asked how Emeraude is doing after the loss of Lakota. Emma tends to be a little habit-bound, finding one good spot and sleeping there for days. Though I’ve left the bathroom door open all the time, even when her food is in there, she has been hopping back into the tub or curling up on the toilet lid for naps. I decided she needed a bit of a nudge, so instead of spending time in there with her, I carried her into my studio to spend time with me. After that, I found her just about everywhere upstairs.

One evening as I was working downstairs I heard a cat come down the stairs and sit next to me on my desk, though I was preoccupied and didn’t notice who and asked them to wait. Then I heard hissing, and the kids never have reason to hiss, looked to see Emeraude sitting next to me!

So here’s how our girl is doing.

. . . . . . .

Having a quiet nap on my work table in the afternoon.

She loves windowsills, and this cool and shady sill in my bedroom is a favorite.

Of course, she has the windowsill in the bathroom to enjoy when she wants a little sunbath.

She likes heights and found nearly the tallest spot in my bedroom for this nap.

Waiting for me to come back to work in the afternoon.

Watching the birds and squirrels and people from above.

Settling down for a nap in my box of packing materials in the tub.

Perhaps a little annoyed with all the photos.

Do you really need to do that?

She’s explored other places as well. I never really know where I’ll find her when I go upstairs, but she always says hello to me from wherever she is. She hisses mightily at any of the others, and the Four disappear, but Mimi holds her ground, they have a little hissing contest, then go on with life. She’s quite affectionate, giving me the sweetest nose kisses I’ve ever had from a cat, with lots of purrs.

I’d say she’s not doing too badly for a 19-year-old cat who finds herself in a strange place and who recently lost her Best Fur Friend with the huge purrsonality.

    Wonderful update, Bernadette. How great to see Emeraude making herself at home. I think Mimi is letting her know she’s part of the family!

      Lynda, I’m so glad she’s exploring–and open a drawer or door and in she goes. So wonderful at 19!

    Hi Auntie Bernadette! *waves paws* We’re sooo glad to see Emeraude out & about. We kittehs do get into a rut sometimes and need a swift kick in the, uh…pantaloons, mommy says. We bet she misses Lakota though.

      Guys, I know she does, and the more she was spending time alone in there the more she missed him. Carrying her out kind of broke the spell, and I still need to do that at least once each day, but she’s been okay.

    What great pics and you say she is 19. She has taken to you there is no doubt about that. I hope she is able to enjoy more time about her new home. Then again, Mimi is in charge. Lovely story.

      Bernie, Mimi is definitely in charge, no doubt about that. I’m glad Mimi is up here instead of all five!
