Livin' It Up with Sammy

Catch Me If You Can

Oh boy, did I have some fun last night! Normally we are indoor kitties and we only go outside if we are on a leash or in our stroller. But now that there are four of us, it’s been harder for Mom to take all of us outside at the same time. We usually have to take turns, 2 cats at a time.

Last night the weather was really nice and Mom and Dad were both home to supervise us, so they let all four of us out in the backyard at the same time. We’ve done this before and usually we behave ourselves, but not this time.

It all started to go downhill when Tully decided to jump over our side of the fence into the neighbors’ backyard. Well, he jumped back over to our side on his own before Mom could even catch him, but she decided we all needed to go back inside the house after that happened. Well, I decided I wasn’t ready to go back inside just yet. I love being in my backyard and I love chasing the bugs – it is so much fun – so I RAN!

I ran behind the bushes, I ran in back of the shed, I ran all over the yard. Mommy and Daddy were both chasing me around so I thought it must be a game. That got me running around even more. That’s when Mommy decided to use her “Mommy Psychology” thinking cap and figured that I was running around so much because I was being chased. You know, the more something chases you, the more you run – MOL!

She told Daddy to go back inside the house with the other cats while Mommy stayed outside. She sat quietly for a few minutes on the patio waiting for me to calm down. That’s when she came over to the bushes, grabbed me, and brought me inside the house.

It sure was fun while it lasted!

Sammy (aka “The Flash”)

I read about Tully sneaking over the fence! True, when my Mommie plays with me and starts running like she is going to get me I run too, I think it is a game too! Hope you are having a fun relaxing Sunday!

It sounds like you had an exciting evening! But, it sounds like it might have been exhausting for your Mom. You could call me "The Flash" because I run around just like that if I'm outside...So now Mom won't really let me go out unless I'm on a leash or in the stroller. Maybe I'll calm down...

You're so adorable and adventurous! I used to do that a lot in my younger days, I'd go under the house where no-one could get me, there were all kinds of bugs and mousies to hunt! Last time I found an open door, I was 11 years old and it was dinner time...this old ladycat had to think hard about which way to run! I was sitting on the deck, thinking "din-din or yard, din-din or yard?" when mom grabbed me.
