The Latest Adventures of Shadow

Last night while climbing to new heights, I met a new friend. I should have been surprised, but wasn't because after all, you meet people in the strangest places around here. I have learned to expect the unexpected.

After introducing myself and having a cup of cappucino, Raven and I decided to survey our domain. Lo and behold, walking underneath our perch was Merlin. Instantly I got an idea, which I gladly shared with Raven. I figured if he could swoop down and peck Merlin on the head it would be a funny, funny joke we could share at further cafe outings.

Well, Raven delicately shared a secret with me. He can't fly. Unfortunately someone clipped his wings when he was young and they never grew back. So instead of sharing a pecking joke we were only able to point and laugh, which irritated Merlin enough. Don't we look chumy.

Is he a raven that escaped from the Tower of London? That is the only place mum has ever seen a raven.

Your people have a great sense of humor. We noticed he is perched on Poe. Too bad he can't be a conspirator with you!!

Once And Future King is my favorite rendering of the Arthurian legend! Kitties obviously have good taste.

It looks like fun up there. We have lots of bookshelves in our house but I am not allowed to climb on them.

No, not a real raven Shami, but don't tell Shadow ~Poi Mom Jane

Mom reads to us Patches.

I don't know where this raven flew in from Derby. He muttered something about dark and dreary...

Thank you SS & S. They think so too. I'm not so sure.

Mom collects Arthurian legends Gigolo kitty. She LOVES them.

Merlin is always jealous of me and Ko Ko when we climb up, up, up to the ceiling. He is to big and clumsy to be able to fit without falling. Heh. Mom gave up on trying to keep us off the bookcases cause it is a normal thing for siamese and tunkinese to climb. We are careful.
