The other day, Corona and I went for a walk in the park. Being so old, she can’t go very far and has to take her time, but going for walks in the park is one of her favorite things to do. Her max is about a half a mile, so when I take her to the park it’s only for about 20 minutes.
Last Halloween my sister decided to draw Corona on a pumpkin. Here’s a side by side of the two.
Pretty similar right?
Monday’s are rough, but Monster Truck had a great day as always. He went through his regular routine of waking up, going downstairs to eat, then coming back upstairs to wait for me to finish showering, outside the door. Monster Truck LOVES drinking the milk from the cereal bowl. He waits on the table for me to finish eating, then takes a few licks of whatever milk is left. One thing to know about him is that he always prefers whole milk or even 2% over skim milk. He’s a particular cat with expensive tastes.
Monster Truck also sat at the dinner table with us tonight. He doesn’t do that as often because he’s usually outside at the time we have dinner, but tonight was an exception. He sure loved the grilled chicken!
Oh yeah, and Monster Truck brought home a nice dead squirrel for me the other day. Thanks MT!
A few weeks ago, Monster Truck wasn’t feeling very well, so both Corona and Max came up to check up on him while he was eating. He usually has his dinner on the counter but he was unable to jump up so I had to put it on the floor for him. Corona & Max wouldn’t leave him until he was all done eating, and then, like a family leaving a restaurant, they all left together.
Max and Monster Truck did not get along at all when they first met a couple years back, but now they’re good friends. Max now knows that Monster Truck is the boss of the house and he has certainly learned not to mess with him. Max even looks out for his cat friend now!
This is completely unrelated to Corona & Monster Truck, but I just thought I would share some pictures of some dogs I met in Ecuador this past summer. I’m assuming the reason people follow this blog is because they either like dogs or cats (or both), so here you go!
This dog was about the size of my hand, and he was absolutely adorable. This little dog was in a shop, so naturally I had to go see this fluff ball.
All of the dogs in Ecuador were incredibly friendly, and loved any and all attention.
I don’t remember interacting with this dog much, but he’s pretty cute as you can tell.
I do remember this dog, and he was as sweet as could be.
THIS dog was one of a kind. He followed me around for roughly a mile until returning to go back where he came from. Not only was he the sweetest and coolest dog in the country of Ecuador, but he was also adorable.
Every now and then, for whatever reason, Monster Truck will go in Corona’s crate and spend some time in there. He doesn’t even leave any room for Corona! He used to do it when he was sick, but now I think he just genuinely enjoys it. She has plenty of other beds and places to rest, so she doesn’t mind him spending some time in there.
Just the other day, Monster Truck decided to take his nap into Corona’s crate.
Corona was patiently waiting for him to leave.
Corona was waiting for a long time.
One thing that needs to be known about Monster Truck, is that he loves to go for walks with Corona. Every time I take Corona for a walk he follows us around everywhere. Every now and then he’ll run ahead of us just to hide behind a tree to try and scare Corona. Corona is unfazed.
Here’s a picture of Monster Truck trying out this leash contraption that the humans use to walk Corona.
Long story short,
Monster Truck was unsuccessful.
