Madam enjoys her cream
Karma turned sixteen this past spring and for a while this summer I feared she wouldn't see another birthday. Sometimes I wonder if she wasn't just working us, her fans and supporters, with her drama.
Here she is enjoying her morning bowl of half and half out on the dye deck working hard to maintain her svelte 7.5 pounds. Her coat seems to be coming back in now despite a tail full of nasty jujus that she won't let me groom. How sensible it was to shed 75% of one's fur during the hot summer months. If I had taken her cue, I would have shaved my head.
Over the past few days I have begun to suspect that she may be deaf and blind on her left side.
Still, she does exactly what she wants, whenever she wants to - or you hear about it. We should all be so fortunate.
Here are the mystery mobys turned out of their jars onto the table to drain a bit. Once the sun comes out, I'll hand wash them and see just how much dye will stay. I suspect a lot will flee.
