I tried to reason with her about flashing the neighbors and her response was: “I ain’t showin’ em nothin they haven’t seen before!”
That is also true.
Two hours later…
Lois: “I can’t find Baby!”
Me: “I know Lois, I’m sorry. I’m sure she’ll turn up soon.”
Lois: “Well the wolves probably got her.”
Me: “I’m sure she’s fine.”
Lois: “Oh no, those wolves gobbled her up! Either that or the coyotes…”
Me: “I’m sure she’s out there somewhere. I saw her at lunchtime.”
Lois: “Did she eat?”
Me: “Yes, she ate some of her soft food.”
Lois: “Oh good! I’m glad Baby got one last, tasty meal before the wild animals ate her for a snack.”
Baby came in an hour later for dinner. She waited until Lois stopped calling for her and then she creeped in and ate her food.
I guess the wolves will have to prey on some other old lady’s cat tonight…
