Cat! She didn’t want to be my friend. How quickly she has forgotten that just a week or so ago, she was sitting and letting me put expensive flea meds on her and brush her! I seem to attract friends who love me one day and hate me the next! Hey . . maybe it’s ME! I can say that . . you can’t! 🙂
For a few days before Chad, Nicole and Addie got here, I was busy and didn’t spend much time with Cat. The minute they drove up, Cat disappeared and every now and then, we’d get a glimpse of her. We continued to feed her and we would see her eating, all the while watching for a little blue eyed darling to come charging out of the house wanting to catch her. Speaking of wanting to catch something, we went out one day and a rabbit was in the yard. The rabbits aren’t terribly afraid of us and we can usually get pretty close to them. Addie saw one and said “Come on, Granny! Let’s catch him!” Hmm . . you need mommy or daddy if you’re going to chase down a rabbit. My rabbit catching days are probably history.
They left Friday morning and when I saw Cat again, she hissed at me. WHAT? I’ve spent almost a week trying to get to be her friend again.
This morning I went out and it was like she never stopped being my friend. She came up to me and let me pet her. She followed me into the shop as I went to get something out of the fridge over there. She followed me back to the house. When I started to go inside, I had to stop and say “No! You’re not coming in!”
She stayed outside the door for the longest time waiting to see if I was coming back out. She knows I don’t stay inside long in the mornings. She’s still very jumpy and nervous and I’m very careful around here but I’m glad she’s back to letting me pet her.
