War Between the Cats and a Squirrel
I was in the kitchen minding my own business when I see Whiskers walking across the yard with something in his mouth. Whatever it was was fighting to get free. Before I can get to the door Precious jumps Whiskers so she can steal whatever he has. He was startled and dropped his catch. It was a squirrel! Well with 2 cats in the doorway the squirrel chooses to run the other way which is inside my house. The cats don't want to loose the catch of the day so they both are in hot pursuit. Pictures are knocked off the wall, things on the table are flying, mail on the counter is scattered allover the floor. I am trying to catch the cats to put them outside but can't. I finally grab a broom and get between the cats and the squirrel and start shooing the squirrel off my curtains and toward the door. He finally makes a break for it and I slam the door to keep the cats inside. The cats give me a look that tells me I had better not close my eyes when I go to sleep or they will pay me back for letting their squirrel loose. The squirrel is in the tree by the deck and if I could understand squirrel talk I think I would be very afraid! Kinda reminds me of that old song by Ray Stevens about the squirrel that got loose in church. All I know is if you don't see me around the blog.... It was the cats or squirrel that got me!
