Tell me again why we have Cat! Does she kill mice? NO! Does she kill snakes? NO! Has she taken over the place? YES!
See the paws? She sleeps upstairs in the shop . . halfway hanging over the edge. This photo was taken from downstairs looking up.
I go outside about 6:30 a.m., feed her and pet her for a few minutes. She eats and then I open the shop door and up the stairs she goes, to her favorite sleeping spot and within minutes, she’s snoozing.
I walked right up on her and she didn’t wake up.
I leaned down and touched her and she did wake up but it was like she was saying “What the heck do you want? Can’t you see I’m trying to sleep?” I know how you feel, Cat. I hate it when I’m awakened from a nap! Good grief . . that Cat sleeps all day.
Sometime around late afternoon, she comes moseying down the stairs, like . did I miss anything today? Then she gets under my car so she can see what’s going on but not put forth too much effort. This morning I saw a big fat lizard scurry right past her. She looked at it and I was thinking . . Do it! Catch it, Cat! Prove to me that you remember what you’re supposed to do! Nope, she watched it walk right in front of her but she never moved.
There she stays until it’s time for me to go put the chickens up. Then I’ll sit in my outside chair and pet her for a while. I go in and she must prowl around all night. Surely after sleeping all day, she doesn’t sleep all night too.
In the meantime, we’re being overrun by snakes but so long as they’re not under my car or upstairs in the shop, I suppose they’re not bothering Cat at all!
