#24-PUSSY CAT PERILS


















I have a Cat named “Kit.”  No, not “Kit-Kat", but just KIT.  The name works for her.  I found her under my truck one day when I was visiting my son and his family.  This small tortoise shell kitten was apparently waiting there for me to find her and take her home.  We were a match from day one.

She is a smart cat and learned how to let herself in and out of my back door.  When she first comes in she yowels at me and tells me about her day outside.  Occasionally, she brings me trophies.  One time she brought in a half eaten bird.  Yes, I have talked to her about that. She put the darned thing in her food dish.  That was just plain gross!  But, at least she knew where it went.

Several times she brought live birds into the house.  I should be happy because she apparently listened to my lecture about not killing birds.  However, the release of a flying creatures in the house causes a big hullabaloo.  It is usually a race to see who can catch the bird first.  So far I am winning! (5 to 1)  She also released one small bunny rabbit which took US thirty minutes to catch.  I released him (the bunny) outside, and even though winded (both of us, actually) he streaked away.

Kit has been subjected to being on the edge of the fall-out from my many projects.  She has been spray painted, chased by a run away sander, struck by falling debris, startled by wayward ladders, and was forgotten on top of my roof (NOT MY FAULT, she followed me up there).  Yet she still comes home.  However, she now watches my projects from a vast distance (like I said, she is very smart cat).  She is like a best friend.

I have a best friend like that.  Her name is Carol.  Although I have never spray painted her or stranded her on my roof top, I know she will always be there for me, no matter what.

See blog # 13 for the sander episode. (She will also be featured in future blogs, I’m sure).

PS.
Since this was posted one more peril has been added to Kit's life, and it goes by the name of TOBY!
Look at THAT fool in the background.
He's tried to climb this tree three times.
This is ME ignoring HIM!
Guess what happened to the ladder I was standing on to take this picture.  Yep, one leg went into a mole hole and dumped me on the ground.  Kit looked on (and I think she was smiling) and Toby smothered me with doggy kisses.

  2. Firstly, a while back a reader asked you if that red monster of a truck in your profile picture was yours...I'm asking too, as you now state clearly you own a truck!

    Kit probably put the DEAD bird in her dish to tell you she really prefers free range chicken to fillet steak! And I think she brings LIVE birds (and rabbits) into the house so she can play a game of catch with you, since you won't go and play 'catch the bird' with her outdoors!

    She certainly has lived up to the 'cat has nine lives' theory! And she was probably smiling when you fell off the ladder saying, 'I got you back for spray-painting me! Now, watch out for how I'm going to get you back for each of the other misdemeanours!!!'

    You have BEAUTIFUL furry friends, Karen :)
