So, Honey wanted to know last night if she could go outside and play today.
There is no making a cat understand the word "No" ... so we did something I consider dangerous.
I carried Honey ( who weighs at least 10 lbs ) around the house then we stepped out of the lanai and went right back inside.
She seemed to have been satisfied, she has not asked me again.
Now Minette, I have to watch out because it takes a lot to scare her. .. And I ... well, these days, I might be more easily scared than I used to be.
Partly because I used to feel so safe and secure. Someone who knew what they were doing, was in charge.
Partly because I worry that I forgot a really important reason why something is a good idea or not.
And that is what I am dealing with these days.
If something is a good idea.
You know how it is, if you really want something, then you can think of all the reasons why it is a good idea.
So the cats and I have been laying low and also ... waiting to see if anything changes.
So ...it was a gorgeous day ... no a/c needed but bright sun and blue skies.
All I can hear is distant airplanes sometimes, (AF Base) and an occasional car going by.
Today I heard a dog bark ... why mention it ? it is the first time I have heard one since I have lived here.
The cats looked puzzled and went back to sleep.
I looked slightly curious then went back to my book.
All is quiet and well , way down here in Florida.
My beautiful boy Merlin ... he has gotten more energetic as the day has gone on ... I am willing him to remain with me ...
