    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO — Dumb Animal

    Well, the cat is home from the hospital ... minus his tail, bandaged up and down.

    Somehow, he seems okay with it ... too "simple minded" and "dumb" to rehash the past, worry about his limited future, his options, to be traumatized by the drama, concerned about his scarred looks, to mourn for his missing tail. He just sits with it all ... and purrs.

    Oh, what we might learn from poor, dumb animals!

    Where did the cat's tail come from, where did it go?

    Today’s Sit-A-Long video follows at this link. Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended.

    Thank you for this Jundo. I am glad to see Tin-Tin recovering and also glad to see that 'body cast' was another case of transatlantic differences of meaning - here a body cast is literally that, a cast over the whole torso, seeing what wee call a 'plastered leg' is a relief, (although I am summ Tin-Tin feels just as sore).

    Tinky also learned so little from his past exploits that he unlocked [!! He was the Houdini of Cats!] and got out the window one night and was hit by another car ... and the road is way way far from our house. That cat really used 18 of his 9 lives over the years (e.g., the day he brought home one of the most poisonous snakes in Japan that even the guy at the insect/reptile museum jumped when I showed him ... fortunately, they usually stay far away from people) ...

    We now have Yuriko. She is shy and never messes with the windows and snakes. We are content.

    Gassho, J

    Wish I could say it was wise discernment on my part, but am just going through the old sit-a-longs, one by one. Funny, though, I've noticed they always seem to say just what I needed to hear that day. Like a magic 8-ball!
