While our other cat Mimi was born a prima donna and has never been prone to physical activity, Susi is the wild one. She used to be out all night every night, regardless of the weather and temperature. More recently, though, her activities have decreased somewhat. Last year she started sleeping inside the house half the night and then have my dad let her out around 2 a.m. A couple of weeks ago she stayed inside all night for the first time. Madame is getting lazy. Or maybe it’s because we didn’t appreciate her gifts (mice, rats, rabbits, birds, snakes, etc.) enough, so that she doesn’t bother any more. No gifts on the one hand means a calmer kitty on the other hand, which allows me to snap a photo of her every so often now.
