Here we are from the other day, heading down the street:
Zim and me (Stormy)
You can tell Zim is already looking around for some fun, can't you? Predictably enough, on our way home, Zim spotted one of our kitty-cat friends and stopped. Here's a collage:
I never did see the kitty, nor did Mom, but Zim knew he was out there. It was probably our friend the Calico Cat. She's a bit more shy than the other kits in the neighborhood. You can see Zim was doing his utmost to win her over and have her come over to visit!
Apparently when Ammy and/or Dave go with Zim on afternoon walkies, they aren't quite as patient with him while he communes with his friends. Me? I'm happy to take a little breather - plus I love kit-cats like Zim does. (One of my best friends back at Ft. Riley was a beautiful Siamese named Kit!) But then there comes a time when we do need to head back to Ao4 Headquarters.
Come on, Zim. Let's head home.
As a leader, it's up to me to ... lead.
I sure was hoping the Calico kit-cat would come over, Storm!
Can't we go back and try again?
Sheesh. Do you see that Sad Look he's doing in that photo above? Enough to break your heart! Who taught him that?!?! Oh... ha roo roo roo! Right. It was me. Well, I couldn't even look at him, or I would have caved. He's really got that one down, doesn't he?
We'll try again tomorrow, Zim.
We haven't seen the Calico since then, but we have made friends with a black and white kitty! She's even followed us home and hangs out in our yard now! We'll try to get Mom to take her picture.
Hope you enjoyed our walk with Zim. I know I always love it!
