Maybe I don’t need to go to the stream today….

The Beach is calling….

I thought today would be a perfect day to find my mama and go to the stream to play with some fish and hunt some ducks. But that was before I finally conned the Can Opener into letting me outside for a few minutes. I’m sure she thought I’d come back in if I got too hot, but I’m a cat, and that didn’t occur to me.

Luckily for me, the Can Opener was already planning not to let me stay out for more than a few minutes. For some reason, once I got outside, I didn’t feel like going as far as the stream. I just poured myself on the pavement under the car.

Then “something” (The Lord)- made my human decide to look out in the front yard and when she did she saw me, and I ran inside. Normally she doesn’t look for me in the front, because the minute I get outside I head to the stream. But it was hotter than I thought it would be when I pleaded with my mom in my most DESPERATE meows to go out. She knew it was hot, but didn’t realize how hot, until she opened her laptop and saw the temperature on her screen….108!

It felt so good to come back inside where the air conditioner was on. Sushi already had claimed my favorite spot next to the laptop, so I found the next coldest spot, and melted into the nice cold kitchen floor.

Ahhhhh… right under the air conditioner.

She looked like she had melted into the pillow. But it’s not hot in the house. And she doesn’t go outside to hunt all day like I do. She’s super-glued to the Human. She follows her like a shadow, and cries and goes hunting her down if she leaves or goes to the nieghbor’s house.

Of course, I tried to go right back outside after a few minutes, but Mom pretended she didn’t notice I was wanting out again -(but she did notice). That’s okay though, because I just decided to go settle in on the nice, cozy bed.

I’ll go hunting tonight!

Meanwhile, the Critters and their parents are at the beach….maybe they’ll bring some fish home for me, Sushi and Serafina and Abby!
