Bits & Pieces: 03/05/15
Bits & Pieces by Judy Schachner is the sequel to Grannyman. Tink, the kitten from the first book is now the elderly cat. His family have gotten a new kitten (who bears a striking resemblance to her famous kitten / Chihuahua, Skippyjon Jones).
While Tink the elderly is fine with his end of life role as the "grannyman", he begins to realize through his new charge, that there are things from like he's missing. First and foremost, he wants an adventure outside.
Tink's interest in the outside — without the desire to truly roam as a younger cat would, reminds me terribly of Caligula cat. Though she spent most of her life (save for a brief stint as an indoor / outdoor kitten) as an indoor cat, she began to rediscover the outdoors through our balcony garden.
We moved to our current place when she was nine but it wasn't until she was more like twelve that the late afternoon sunshine called to her. She spent much of her last years of life happily sleeping in flower pots on the balcony.
