I had quite an adventure the other day. I can only just now write about it. As usual, I was pestering to go outside early in the morning to make my daily patrol around the yard. Mom hestitated because she had to go away that day, but relented because I am a very good pesterer. But when she left, she forgot I was outside! She didn't get home until after dark, and when I didn't show up in the kitchen for dinner she realized what she had done and ran outside to find me. After she nearly had a heart attack, I came up on the deck and ran in the house. She lavished apologies and love on me the rest of the night.
So now kitties, I will share how I spent my exciting day. First, I made my patrols of the yard. I saw no intruders. I guarded the bird feeder for a while. Those birds eat too much seed and I have to force them to conserve. I went to my favorite chipmunk hole and watched for him to come out and play. Then I went up on the deck to go in, but mom never came. So back down for another patrol. Back on the deck. Around supper time I was getting pretty hungry and sat outside the door, but still no one came.
When it got dark, I heard the big owl that lives in our valley, so I stayed close to the house under the bushes. I worked my way to the front door, in case anyone was there. I cried a little (but don't tell anyone). Finally, a car pulled into the driveway, and shortly after I heard mom. But I was mad and a little scared so I made her wait just a little while before I finally went inside! Relief! Food! Hugs! I stayed inside the next day and slept a lot. I burned lots of energy on my adventure and needed to recharge. So that was my big adventure- exciting or scary? You decide.
