Question: Are books a must-have in your home?
My response: Some books with sentimental value are must-haves, such as signed copies, books that were gifts, books that I have a personal connection to, or books that are written so well that I can see myself rereading them.
FRIENDLY FILL-INS, hosted by Four-Legged Furballs and 15 and Meowing.
1. My favorite character from a film, t.v., or book is Paislee. I can think of others, too, but I chose to share the protagonist I'm reading about now. She's from Murder in a Scottish Shire (Scottish Shire Mystery 1), by Traci Hall. I will review this book in a week or two, so that's all I'll say for now.
2. The one word I would use to describe myself is an overplanner. Again, I can think of other words, but this was the first one that came to mind. I tend to think I can do more in a day than I realistically can, which sometimes leads to a feeling of frustration.
3. If I had to give you my best piece of advice, I would tell you to follow your intuition,
4. Bell and Fiona will never compare with any other cat I've had. I love them all in unique ways.
Plot twist! I recently wrote about how Bell is very protective of her Mousey. (Read that post here.) What I didn't mention is that Bell hisses and growls when she has possession of it. It is hers and only hers!
Well, in an unexpected turn of events this week, Fiona had possession of Mousey (under Bell's supervision, of course) and Fiona started hissing at Bell! I laughed so hard because this was such a change. It was like she was giving Bell a taste of her own medicine. Bell just gave her a look as if to say, "How dare you talk to me that way!" I told Bell she is the one who taught Fiona how to "speak" to her like that. It's true. From the time they were tiny kittens, Bell has always been the one who did things first - climbing, jumping, etc. Fiona studied her carefully and eventually followed in her pawsteps. So in this case, she had been studying Bell all along and finally decided to try it out on her! By the way, these hissing and growling exchanges are never filled with true animosity. They are more like warning signals than never really turn into anything major. They are both the biggest love bugs.
