Well, Mom and I haven't had time to write for a while. Merry late Christmas to all my friends and Happy New Year to come!
My human family was racing to get out the door this morning. Us cats didn't know what was going on. Mom and sis-no-fur said something about "overnight" and Dad said "see you next year"? I still don't know what this means. I thought they were behaving rather rashly myself; throwing things in a soft black box and cleaning our litter boxes early in the morning. I must admit that I was starting to get a bit worried, but and then Mom put this very yummy food in our bowls! Chaucer and I ate some of it up right away even though we just had our breakfast. Food makes the world a good place!
Humans are very strange. They left the house and were gone long enough for me to start having a nap and then they came back covered in snow. Now they are saying they might try to leave us again later when it stops snowing. Hmmm. Does this mean that all that food will come back out again?
I had a good metitation the other night while hanging over the edge of the couch. The wall was right in front of me and I had the Christmas tree next to me with the lights on. I stayed there for a long time. Mom and Dad asked me if something was wrong. I like to drape myself artistically over things.
Now I am crouching by the door to the deck. I am watching the birds and squirrels poking around for the seeds Mom put there. I must...Pounce. Oh, my tail won't stop twitching! I could touch those juncos and sparrows if it weren't for the door. Patience will win out one of these days. This is why I meditate, to have patience.
Patience is good when one has to watch birds and squirrels but can't get to them. Patience is also good when one has a little brother. Mom told me that she is proud of me because I've been playing with the little orange guy. Well, she called it playing, I call it learning about my enemy.
Well, I can't concentrate on writing any more. That squirrel...it's getting closer...
