Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Missing Tree

by Tanner (Resident Kitty) 

Something bad happened to my condo: the landscaping left! I had no sooner convinced Camilla and Dylan to vacate my building when my tree disappeared. All that was left were some leaves on the floor. Even Jim-Bob noticed it was missing when he came to visit.

I was so upset I had to hide under the rug until I felt better. 

Finally, I looked out at my condo and decided maybe I could accept the change of scenery.

It looks so empty with the tree gone. Mommy said it would be happier on the front porch for the summer, but I'm not very happy. She mumbled something about minimalist decorating.

However, you can see my art collection a little better now. I have several cat-themed art things hanging on the wall. I think this one says "The Cat Named Tanner lives here." 

You can see the birdcage painting better now that it hangs from the ceiling.

If I don't like the direction it is hanging, I can change it. See, it looks a little lopsided. . . .

I just have to make a little adjustment.

There! That's better.

I can also see more of what's happening below me now. I can look down on everyone better.

Maybe I can used to this minimalist look.

Here's looking at you!
