Soda cat

On my walk today I came across a cat who lives in a shop window. He was enjoying an afternoon nap in the warm Spring sunshine.

Although his home is quite small it appears to be well equipped. It even has an electric kettle so he can warm up his milk at bedtime.

I know from my own kitten, Barnaby, that cats are renowned for being very clean animals and this particular cat even has a traditional Georgian brush to keep his shop window home super clean.

The packets on the shelf above his head are baking soda. I asked the tall person why the cat has baking soda in his home and he told me that baking soda has many uses, including absorbing kitty litter odors. Wow! This cat is serious about personal hygiene.

I’m not sure what is in the shiny keg but the cat is obviously very attached to it because he was hugging it very affectionately.

The pink palace of beauty

Tall person and De both had their hair cut yesterday. I had suggested that they go to the pink palace of beauty that I often pass on my walks in the neighborhood. Its pink wall is decorated with the head of a handsome young man looking up at a beautiful young woman who has a cascade of raven hair and red pouting lips. Although the young man appears to be looking at her with longing in his eyes the beautiful young woman seems to be aloof and unreceptive. I think it is because his hair looks untidy at the front. Perhaps this is a message to all young men with untidy hair – get your haircut at the pink palace of beauty or beautiful young women will ignore you. I must admit it is a compelling subliminal message.

I mentioned this to the tall person and though he agreed that the ‘keep it tidy’ principles of the pink palace of beauty were indeed admirable he would continue to go to his usual hairdresser in Agmashenebeli Avenue. Hmm, perhaps he is not keen on the stylized aerial combat scene painted on the pink wall.
