Of all the animals I’ve ever had as pets, and I really haven’t had that many, Cat is probably the one that intrigues me the most. I suppose that’s just part of being a cat but he’s so “needy” and yet so standoffish at the same time. Considering that he had been living out in the woods for no telling how long, and then he hung around for over a year before making friends, he’s such a creature of habit now.
He stays on top of my car. When it was so miserably hot, about 10 a.m., probably when the top of the car got really hot, he would get down and get under the car and stay til about dusk and then get back on top of the car.
It’s awfully generous of us to provide him with an SUV upon which to lounge all day! If I had my way, we’d have a garage and there would be no cat inside the garage.
She glares at me when I pass as I go in and out of the shop. I cannot reach up and touch her though . . she has to come to me.
I mentioned the other day how she sits in the middle of the driveway and waits for me to go put the chickens up, knowing I’ll come out and sit and pet her.
Here’s the weird thing . . Sunday night I was up really late . . til about 1:30 a.m. When I turned off the living room lights, it looked like a light was on in Vince’s car so I walked over to the door to look out the window but it wasn’t. I don’t know what I saw. But, I noticed Cat . . sitting in the middle of the driveway, staring at the back door. I went to bed and when I got up about 5:30, it was still dark so I looked out again and she wasn’t there.
Then, last night I remembered that UPS had left a package and I never got it off the porch so about midnight, I opened the door to grab the package. There was Cat, sitting out in the driveway staring at the door.
This morning I told Vince about it and he said maybe she thinks as long as there are lights on in the house, she knows I’m still up and maybe she sits there hoping I’ll come out and pet her. That would be sad, huh?
What do y’all think? Would she be sitting out there all night hoping I’ll come out again and pet her?
