|"Mom! Up in the cul-de-sac! Check it out!"|
Can you see them? It's my friend Fluffy Black Cat and a cat I haven't met before!
That's FBC on the left. (Sadly, she's been mostly shaved. Don't get me and Mom started about that.) They saw me, and FBC must have said something to the new kit-cat about me because she started coming down the hill to meet me!
|"That's Zim; he's my friend."|
Not the best photo, but you get the idea.
We communed at a distance (no photos; Mom wanted "control" of the situation - HA!), then my new friend went off to do kit-cat things. We ran into each other again on our evening walk, but before I show you the photos, let me explain why they will look a bit "off". Take a look out back with me:
Can you see the smoke over the hills? Here's the view off our deck:
Yes! It's prairie and field burning time! A sure sign of Spring! (They burn to maintain the integrity of the prairie! Please click here if you'd like to learn more about the controlled burn practices and how important it is to our Flint Hills area!) So anyway ...
After dinner, we all went on our after-dinner walk. It was fairly uneventful until ...
|"Look, you guys! Peeking out from behind that trailer!"|
Maggie was in the lead, so she saw her first! It was my friend from earlier!
|"Mrrr-ow? Zim? Is that you?"|
She and I had a nice, silent exchange and were really having a nice moment, when "something" freaked her out, and she darted into the street!
|"Not in front of the vehicle!!! NO!!! Careful, little kit-cat!"|
Whew! Fortunately, she waited until the SUV passed by. Do you know what made her dash off? Umm...
|"And just STAY AWAY, kit-cat!"|
Umm... yeah. It was an "all family" walk. Cam can't help herself. It's the Siberian prey drive thing. As most of you know, I stood in the Play Drive line instead of the Prey Drive line when God was giving out Siberian traits. Cam got in the line most Sibes get in. And Maggie? Well ...
|"Is that something I can play with?"|
I'm trying to bring her over to the Camp Zimmie side, but it's hard to go against instincts.
Have a wonderful Sunday - I hope you get to share time with some special friends!
