Though the days are getting cooler, I am still losing a lot of fur as my longer winter coat grows in. Every morning the wrinkly one scratches my back. It is not quite as nice as her sharp claws, but does a good job of freeing the pesky fur.
I am ready for a new day! I race into the backyard, excited for what adventure surely awaits!
I have never traveled this far from the wrinkly one’s domain before.
…A leafy thing crunches beneath my foot and the bird takes to the air! Noooooooo!
Not even a feather is left behind. All I can find among the leafy things is the discarded remains of a stringy beast.
It’ll have to do.
I’m sure the wrinkly one will still be pleased.
…No thanks to you, stone cat! Look at you, cat napping without a care in the world… I bet you couldn’t even catch this!
Ah, the wrinkly one has noticed my gift!
She is obviously quite happy with it. She’s saving it just like the presents I leave in the sand box!
I will catch that bird! All I need is a little extra training!
Up the feathered beast goes…
And… bam! Kitty makes a snatch!
That night winged creatures fill my dreams.
This battle is not over yet!
