Saturday night, our friends Fiona and David came over for dinner. At their house, everyone takes off their shoes at the door and even though we tell them they don’t need to do that at our place, they do anyway. That night, I mentioned that given the condition of the floors (aka bare crumbly concrete) they might want to reconsider, but they were both more comfy wandering around in their socks.
After dinner, we all noticed that Wally and Eddie were inordinately interested in David’s shoes. By inordinately interested, I mean that both of them took turns shoving their little heads as far in his shoes as possible and using their front paws to pull themselves in even further. I have no idea what they smelled—David seems like a perfectly ordinary man and I can’t imagine he sprinkles cat nip in his boots. But the boys could not pull themselves away from his shoes.
Of course, every time we tried to get a photo or a video, they both immediately stopped what they were doing and walked away. So this picture is all I’ve got. Just imagine, though, two cats absolutely obsessing on those shoes as though they were precious treasures.
