Last night was the “Super Moon Event”. We had been hearing about it on the evening news all week. About 6PM we started anticipating it. Not sure when the moon would rise above the trees to our ESE. This time of year it comes up over the spruce trees that make the boundary between our property and the Gallison Road. I was hoping that it would be a dramatic red moon but it was paler and more subtle. I’m thinking that the orange moon’s that we often get always relate to rather dynamic sunsets, and last night the sunset over Mount Katahdin, to our West, was rather average and not very colorful. But still the Super Moon was really stunning. In fact, although it got smaller as it rose and went through the night sky, it was incredibly bright. The patio door in our bedroom faces the south and about 1:00 AM I woke up and was amazed at how bright, almost blinding it was. I have Chuckles the cat to thank for being awake to see that. Being 9 months old, he’s still in that spastic kitten stage where he will just start doing the craziest maneuvers at a moment’s notice. I can’t figure out what triggers him but he will just start running from one end of the cabin to the other. He loves to run from the kitchen at full speed through the living room and then when he reaches the bedroom door he launches himself through the air landing somewhere in the middle of the bed. It usually wakes up one of us from a sound sleep. Love that kitten, at least that what I keep saying to myself. Good thing God made kittens so cute! Our older, more sedate cat, CJ is so calm. He often looks at Chuckles with a gaze of amazement (I think) when Chuckles is going through his antics. I took Chuckles to be neutered at the Chester Animal Hospital about a month ago. Besides it being the responsible thing to do, I was hoping that it would calm him down but it didn’t change things at all. Notice that I said that I took him. I take all the male pets to be neutered alone. Men seem not to be to keen in participating in taking away another male’s “manhood”.
