Curiosity 

My mama used to say, “Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought her back.” There is so much for little Isabella to explore and be curious about, and she is doing her best to figure it all out. Last night, she became fascinated with her tail. It provided endless entertainment for her and for me. She definitely has the curiosity down pat.

She’s a curious one for me too. I’ve only known her for a few days, so we don’t communicate very well yet. HRH and I had our communication down pat. We knew what the other was thinking and we’d often talk to one another. Right now, I think there are four things on her mind: most of all food, food, food; then play, play, play; potty, potty, potty; and least of all, sleep, sleep, sleep.

She constantly tries to find where on me to nurse, thus the food, food, food. When she’s not trying to nurse, she wants to play, play, play. The potty needs come in only when I’m not looking, but that’s obviously an important part of her day. Sleep is less so. She will nap for an hour or two at a time, but then she’s right back to play, play, play. This includes all hours of the day and night.

I am taking today off. I’m hoping that a day of play will help her sleep through the night and quit waking me up so much. As I’m writing this, she is sound asleep on my belly, which makes this hard to type, thank goodness for my iPad. I think the chasing her tail tired her out.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
