Rusty Has His Morning Routine Down Pat

We all know that animals (even humans) have their familiar habits and routines which make us all feel comfortable.

Rusty, of course, has his.  Below are the 2 videos that make up our daily morning routine.  Of course, I usually have to interrupt my breakfast to accommodate him. He can be bossy at times (all the time!).  If I’m not quick enough, he lets me know about it!!  But it’s worth it.

It’s heartening to see that Rusty’s back legs are working better.  But, when I can, I encourage him to walk down the steps near the loveseat; otherwise, I pick him up from wherever, and gently place him on the floor.  For at least the next couple of weeks, I have to be careful about his jumping, even though he might want to do it.  Not easy when you’re dealing with a cat.

I mention “Down Pat” in the title.  For his reward, he gets Pat-ted Down.

Welcoming The New Sunny Day

Enjoying the sunny morning is a nice way to start the day.

One of the first things I do in the morning after grooming Romeo, Rusty and Patches, is to open the patio door.  They love to go out there.  Many times, Rusty prefers to perch on the windowsill in my bedroom to look out and greet the day.

Rusty, what has caught your attention out there? Rusty, what has caught your attention out there?

Rusty, are you going to tell Mommy about it? Rusty, are you going to tell Mommy about it?

Patches, it's really bright out there now.  What are you looking at?  The same thing that caught Rusty's attention? Patches, it’s really bright out there now. What are you looking at? The same thing that caught Rusty’s attention?

Patches, are you going to tell Mommy about the birds? Patches, are you going to tell Mommy about the birds?

Romeo loves to look out and hopes to find a bird or squirrel to watch. Romeo loves to look out and hopes to find a bird or squirrel to watch.

So, Romeo, what did you see out there this morning? So, Romeo, what did you see out there this morning?  (Notice that the front paws are in the same position.)  Romeo is frugal about wasting energy.
