I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great – I spent Thanksgiving with family and friends, eating delicious food, watching movies, and catching up on some much needed sleep! But – I am convinced that no one had a grander time than Tsunami, my two and a half year old Blue Maine Coon cat!
Tsunami loves holidays. To be precise, Tsunami loves any day – holiday or not – when poultry is served. He is a chicken and turkey kind of guy. So, you can imagine his delight last Thursday, when turkey was the centerpiece of the meal. Since the turkey was free-flowing, from his perspective, I’m convinced that Thanksgiving is his favorite day of the year!
Tsunami has an impeccable sense of smell. We cooked everything except for the turkey at our place – we sent the turkey to our neighbor’s, since she has a larger oven. Tsunami lounged all day, but the moment the turkey appeared, he sprung to life. Out of nowhere, Tsunami zoomed between my husband’s legs, stuck his head over the counter (he’s that tall when he stands!), and began “singing for his supper”. My husband (who is completely ruled by that cat!) attempted to satiate our 20 pound baby by serving him the first dish of the day. Tsunami gave thanks by devouring an entire turkey breast by the time we finshed our meal!
Needless to say, Tsunami has been in a happy, tryptophan haze all weekend!
Today’s photo, taken the Saturday before Thanksgiving, shows a clear-headed Tsunami in all of his regal, self-assured splendor!
