Change In The Weather

The weather is out of the sticky hot summer mode and into the glorious fall mode. The cats have noticed. Last Monday I would have banged their heads together if I would have been able to catch them. They ran and chased each other from room to room and up and down the stairs.

Hey Bob escaped last Tuesday morning and eluded me all day. I finally got her in the house before Crab came home in the evening. She got a stern talking to and responded by settling into my lap and purring.

The next day things were pretty quiet. Snotty Pants is getting fat and lazy and Hey Bob was still recovering from Tuesday's romp. Before I went to bed I put the dog out to do her business. The cats ran to the porch. When I opened the door to let the antique dog in both cats bolted for the lawn. No biggie. It's happened before. Besides, I get up to pee at least once in the night. And Hey Bob is newly spayed so at least she wouldn't come back pregnant.

When I woke up at 2:30 I went out with a flashlight. Snotty Pants raced for the safety of the porch. Hey Bob danced in the light and completely dodged me. Fine, I thought, she will be more than ready for a warm, dry house when I wake up.

I haven't seen her since.
