or. . The Morning Lucy Nearly Gave Mom a Heart Problem.
Lucy: Mom went out to feed that other cat, Blackie. I wanted to see what was going on, so I zoomed out the door.
Wow, I'm outside again! It's been a while. I'm going to run down the driveway! Wheeeeee!
Now I'll run around the house, just for fun. Hope Mom can keep up with me!
Black: What is happening? Mom is running around and yelling at that other cat. I don't like it, and where's my food?
I ran around the house twice, but now I forgot where I am. My tail puffed out and I forget where I'm going. Help! Help!
I am on the neighbor's balcony. Mom is coming toward me. . but I'm scared. . .
Run! I jumped off the railing and into the garden. Look at the impression I made.
I'm running through the neighbor's backyard, fast, and I can't see Mom anymore. Help! I'm lost!
I hear Mom calling and I remember a familiar tree, so I start climbing it. I call out to Mom.
Mom sees me! She calls my name and I meow back. She goes to get a ladder. See how high up I am?
Mom climbs up and waits until I come a bit closer. Then she suddenly and firmly grabs me!
She carries me back inside, holding me so tightly I can barely breathe. I'm back inside again, safe!
This happened yesterday morning, and I thank our friend Connie for the idea to re-create it in miniature. Lucy is back inside, safe and sound. I had to scruff her to get her out of the tree, which I don't like to do to cats, but in this case it was necessary.
Let's hope the rest of the week is more quiet!
