      Iccle is remarkable. She is completely deaf and is one of the ultimate survivors. I met her when I was painting for two summers in Brussels and recently saw here In SW France where she still survives. Her meow is very loud because of her deafness and she is lovely 🙂

    Goodness, this was an absolute treat! It seems I’m not getting email notifications of your posts again! There must be a ghost in the machine!xxx

        fortunately, Nechama is growing old with grace. Only one good eye, but she seems quite aware of all around her. Thanks xxx

        We have a huge stray cat in our new neighborhood. There’s apparently quite a bit of “wildlife” in the area, even though it’s residential. There’s a lot of open land, and according to our neighbor — a delightful 90-year-old whose lived on the corner for 50 years — there’s a place where raccoons, possums, and stray cats all congregate near a sewer drain. It’s also squirrel heaven here. There are literally dozens of them playing in the yards. The big cat stalks the squirrels and the birds, then takes the sun in front of one of our garages. I’ll have to get a picture of it.

        Oh, and lots of birds! We don’t have magical hummingbirds, but we have lots of songbirds. I put birdseed out each morning and evening. My husband and I love to sit on the back patio and listen to all of the birds. We’re learning all their songs. Plus there are dozens of squirrels. Everywhere. One is so funny! All squirrels like to jump, but this fellow LOVES to jump — as high as he can. He’s so much fun to watch. I really do want to sketch and paint the birds and other wildlife.

        We have such a beautiful place now to sit and enjoy the early mornings and late afternoons. We’re very happy with our new home.
