Our beautiful bundle of fuzzy softness (a.k.a. Marquis Mont Blanc de Chamoix – ‘Mont Blanc’ for short) LOVES my office. He was well named after the presitigous pen company. Did I say LOVE? I mean LOVE! He has been filmed ransacking my briefcase at will, tapping on my computer keyboard ‘sending email’ and in my filing boxes. He is truly a ‘paper pusher’. When there is paper laying around – be sure it will not remain in it’s place, as the ultimate paper pusher will push it aside and lay in that particular spot.
It seems in Mont Blanc’s world – all is right if I’m in my office surrounded by files on a quiet morning and he is curled up in a tiny corner or stetched out in the middle of the floor enjoying his catnaps.
He is great company, albeit a little too inspiring on the nap side of life, for me while I am working to ramp up my activity for 2012. It’s peaceful here. Light snow on the ground, wind blowing gently and my handsome 22 pound kitty gently snoring. Contentment.
Life is very simple as a Maine Coon (or any other cat for that matter). Some healthy carnivore delights in the bowl, fresh water, and a cozy corner for kitten naps, after play time. It is a great pattern to follow, I’m thinking as I sit here trying to focus, think, plan and work. However, I must exercise the discipline of sticking to my tasks at hand while my kitty is focused on the most cozy spot available in the office.
Sleep tight, Mont Blanc. You are a great source of company and comfort, even though you don’t realize it.
