My friend, HermitJim gave us cat lovers a treat today in his blog...Cat Trivia!
But it is a funny coincidence that he chose that topic, this morning.
I have a cat that is a particular "baby" of mine...I was there when he was born two years ago and have been attached to him ever since. Well this baby decided to take advantage of my inattention when I came in from feeding the dogs this morning, and he escaped! Now, mind you, this is an INSIDE cat, not an inside/outside cat. And we live on top of a pretty good hill, overgrown and some wooded, so where does this little scamp go? As fast as he can?
Can you see the picture? The little round lady out running after the wayward Maine Coon Cat!
Down the big, dew laden hill in the early light of dawn to rescue the poor, defenseless kitty from the realm of the unknown...wild critters, neighbor dogs, and oooh, little hoppy things to chase, oh boy!
I did some quick "Please, Lord, Help Me's" and even quicker maneuvers down at the bottom of that hill. Finally, after wearing both of us out, I caught Rastus and bundled his wet, cold self up in my arms. Then I looked up. Up that hill. Oh. My. I love my cat, I love my cat...was the chant as I climbed slowly back up to the house.
Well, after that refreshing morning exercise, I went to have a cup of coffee with the Hermit. I will feel the reminder of this fine day tomorrow, I am sure.
I Rest secure in Your Strong Hand
