While those doors were open, we had a visit. It was not particularly welcome by the furry feminine resident here within. And she made no bones about it to him.
I missed what was happening at first. Star sits on the edge of the carpet when she's watching critters out the door. That way she can run up and scare the bejezzus out of them at the right moment. But this time, she didn't move off the edge of the carpet but sat there chattering in a low grumbly voice.
Well this can't be the ebil squirrel or the norty birdies, those she'd jump out at. So I tried to get a peek at the visitor. Before I could though, he moved, all I heard was the skitter of claws on the cement and then Star dived at the door and let out a mighty hiss.
Get out of here you you... intruder!
I got a glimpse of the interloper.
I said go! We don't want you around here!
This is MY house and we already have one more cat than we need!
Surely I can get a better picture...
That's it, keep moving!
Oh there he is!
I've still got my eyes on you!
It's the big orange kitty who lives across the street! The one who's had issues with Leo through this very window! He sits on the broken porch bench and trades unspeakable words with my boy! Sometimes you have to wonder where they learn such language. Well, I'm here to tell you, THIS boy the one who is corrupting my innocent baby Leo with his nasty bad vocabulary!
What are you stopping for? Do NOT sit in MY yard and scratch!
Quit looking back at me! No one said you were allowed to look upon my perfect self!
Get moving again you big orange trespasser! You are catona non grata around here!
He did, after a few more moments, take off, objecting to my presence, not Star's commentary on his person, presence, personality, parentage, and problematic personal hygiene..
I'm sure he'll be back. And I'm sure Star will tell him off again.
Hey, did you know it's the last day to get a brick in the Winnie's Wish Walkway?
And did you see all the sweeties up for adoption? Here they are in the Halloween finery that I did for Chrystal! They sure are awful cute and sure are in need of homes! Please check them out and see if you, or someone you know, could be their forever family!
