Momma KNOWS that I know my way aroound this area, since I was living as a feral kitty here, long before she moved in to the neighborhood!
Well, this morning, while she was feeding the local feral population, I waited by the door for my "big chance", and when she opened it, I dashed outside and away!!! Momma was not even looking, and if she had not heard the bell on my collar, would not have even known I had escaped.
Since Momma only had on a long tee-shirt, she ran back inside and got some shorts on, but by then, I had gotten under the trailer next door!
Big Red, the huge handsome orange Tomcat, who courted me back a few years ago (and sired two of the kittens in my last litter) was under there, also, waiting for his chance to get at the food that Momma had put out. I said "Hello", then did my best "wiggle dance", by rolling in the dirt, in front of him. I wanted him to think I was still "beautiful" MOL!
Then I jumped up onto the roof of another trailer, and ran all over it, while Momma took a spoon, and clacked it on an empty cat food can. (MOL! She had just fed us, so this time, that trick did not work for me!!!)
Then I jumped back down, and Momma almost got her hands on my fuzzy tail, but once again, I ran under some low-hanging branches, where she could not reach me.
The big Tamarisk tree was calling my name, and I really wanted to climb up and see the world, from a high place. (Momma would have left me there, until I decided to come down, in that case!)
But I got careless, and started rolling in the dirt again, and she grabbed me and carried me back inside!
I was thirsty by then; we live on the desert, and even though it was early morning, and relatively cool outside, water is very "necessary" to survival. Momma keeps a bowl of water outside for the feral kitties...sometimes the raccoon gets into the cat food, and tries to "wash" it in the bowl...
Well, I came to Momma's bedroom, and laid down with her and took a three-hour nap...
PS, Momma said she would take me outside on the leash, after the two Bengal kitties leave here, maybe tomorrow morning...
