Cat has forgiven me for leaving for a week and she’s my friend again. I’m not sure if it was me she missed or my car!
She’s on my car taking a spit bath!
Instead of catching snakes and mice, she spends all her time sitting in the driveway watching the back door waiting for me to come out.
As soon as she sees me, here she comes . . but she takes her sweet time because after all . . I’m always in a hurry and she has nothing else to do!
Dogs are so different. They’re always happy to see you and run right up to you. Cat has to stretch!
And then she slowly starts walking toward me. No rush . . we have all night . . nothing else to do but wait for her!
Ever so slowly! Sometimes she’ll get halfway to me and she’ll stop . . like she’s deciding if she really wants to bother coming all the way to me.
Finally, almost close enough to touch. There’s no guarantee that she’s not going to get almost to me and run off in a different direction.
I sat in my chair and she came to me.
She sat for 15 minutes and let me pet her. Then Vince opened the door to the house and she went running back to here safe spot. That’s ok, Cat . . sometimes he’s kinda scary.
We had a neighbor in Kentucky (an adult with kids older than Chad) and she always told me Vince was scary. I should look her up and tell her Cat is afraid of him too. Or, maybe I’ll just tell Cat that story.
While Vince was working in the garden, he saw a snake. He came in and said “Where’s that worthless cat?” I said “I think we have about 20 now . . which one?” I think Cat has decided she won the lottery and her hunting days are over . . except for bunnies. Harmless little bunnies. She seems to love those. She probably knows they would eat my lettuce and carrots so I guess she is earning her keep. It doesn’t matter . . as Addie said about their Speck . . I love her and she’s staying!
