It’s been a while since my human has let me take over her blog. She had an excellent opportunity when she was in Maine selling books and eating seafood (yes, she taunted me with that!) but somehow she felt I would have a hard time adjusting to having the daughter taking care of me. Little does she know, I got brushed every night and received lots of cuddles.
Anyway, I’m sitting at the computer this afternoon while she is out swimming. I have been my usual busyself – sleeping in the new round bed that showed up one day,
sunbathing on the porch,
sleeping on the sofa with ‘she who must not be named,’
sleeping out by the pool, sleeping on my favorite cushion in the living room,
playing with a sock,
and lying upside down on the family room rug to entice passersby to rub my tummy.
It’s no wonder I need to sleep!
Amidst all this summer activity, I reminded my humans what a good watch cat I am. One early summer night, there was a commotion out on the back deck. It was just a big cat with large big ears playing through glass door with me, but it ran away when Noelle opened the door and talked to it. I heard my humans say it was a bob cat. A few days later, it came back very early, before the sun was up.
Apparently during its absence, it had decided it didn’t like me. So it crashed into the glass door. Do you think it wanted to eat me?
I was very brave! I howled and hissed and screeched and yowled, which naturally woke everyone in the house. And you know what? That big cat ran away and hasn’t been back since.
I was very proud, and my human told me many times how wonderful I’d been, so I just had to walk around with my fur all puffed out the entire day! I, Elijah Moon, had driven off that big cat.
I just wish my brother was alive to see it…Zeke was the hunter!
