Cool Cat

CJ considers the fridge a portal into "Cold World", the magical land where the cold cuts live. When she hears door open to the blast of iciness she races into the kitchen with her legs slipping in all directions, screeching an atonal Chinese opera-like howl (or is that redundant?). She climbs into the doorway ledge and sings a few more verses. After she gets what she wants (usually, ham), she tries to squeeze under the door. Not sure why this holds more appeal than walking back out and around the way she came, but it's clearly more exciting for her. And even if we don't have anything delicious to give her, she looks beautiful basking in the warm glow of "Cold World"....

She's an impressive cat. She did a header off the deck trying to reach Gloria (who she couldn't tell was thirty feet away 'cuz she doesn't see very well). Gloria went up into the trees to get away from her, and I told her she was truely a big chicken for running away from a half blind, ataxic cat.
