Here is Grimalkin, also known as Grimmy, Grimble, Grimblkins, Grimsy and Gimblekitten. You have seen my round busybody girl cat here before.
For such a round cat, Grimmy is certainly acrobatic, however, in today’s photo, she is just sitting on a box which contains some shelves that should be assembled and hanging on the wall above my keyboard in my office, but currently are useful as a cat platform. She is peering around my desk; it is her favorite place to sleep and keep me company when I write.
I hate to take it away from her, which is my excuse for not building the shelves.
The real reason is that they are going to be beastly to build, but Grimmy’s continued happy presence gives me a really good reason to procrastinate.
That is also where I set cookbooks to wait between being looked through and then reshelved.
Grimalkin is my helper cat–she helps me write by sitting in front of my computer screen or delicately picking her way across the keyboard on the way to my lap. She plays fetch with little mousey toys and goes through phases where she is a cuddle bug and where she wants to have nothing to do with anyone. She is extremely playful, though and has fun no matter what she is doing.
Right now she is in the same place on the box, curled up asleep.
I bet she is dreaming of mousies.
