Hello! Otis here!
When I haven’t been sleeping I’ve been exploring, exploring, exploring. I explore the places I’m familiar with already in case something has changed but I also go exploring places I haven’t spent much time because my mind is very busy ~ all the time. I have also been exploring rain or shine.
Several times I have been caught in rainstorms a little bit too far from home, but, they don’t call me Aqua Cat for nothing. When I hear my name being called, I brave the stormiest of storms to make it home. When I finally slip through the cat door, I am soaked from head to tail and Meowmy tries to dry me off with a towel. Then I warm myself from the woodburning stove but I can barely look at that thing for the terrible memory of burning my toe beans on it.
My toe beans are safe on this spare tire, in fact, I love diggin` my nails in this tire. Feels so good!
Today me, Floki and Fred the Sandhill Crane explored a new item in the back over here where all the animals tend to gather. Meowmy and PawPaw brought it back from the dump. Well, I guess our town is too good to have a dump and the City Administrator was real offended when Meowmy called it the dump. Meowmy was informed that our town does not have a dump, it has a recycling center. We still call it the dump because even though you can bring your recycling there, you also bring your garbage there so it’s a dump. Meowmy likes the more traditional and simplistic term plus it’s fun to say.
“What a DUMP!”
“Do you need to take a DUMP?”
“Let’s go to the DUMP!”
So, PawPaw found this item at the DUMP and drilled some holes at the bottom so whatever goes in it doesn’t go moldy. Including me!
How do I look? I had to tell Floki he needed to come back later because there was not room for both of us. I wanted to practice my yoga moves and just be Zen. I think he was kinda disappointed.
Me practicing my yoga moves, look at that nice back of mine.
Me, being ZEN. Very unusual. If you remember, I have a very active mind.
Once I felt rejuvenated, Meowmy filled the thing up with corn and now…… TA DA! Fred and Wilma the Sandhill Cranes do not have to compete with the geese for their meals!
Now, that’s pretty Zen! The good news is that I can still sit on it when it’s filled with corn, too! Hopefully it doesn’t smell like someone took a dump when Fred and Wilma are eating. That would kinda take away from the ZEN part.
Freddie really likes it, he started using it right away.
Well, Folks, time for me to decide what my next adventure will be!
Thanks for stopping by and we’ll talk to you real soon!
