Yesterday I sat on the outdoor mat...
The day looked normal.
The sun was shining.
Then the noise began.
I didn't know where to hide myself!
So Mom took me over to the office where
the Nice Ladies work.
I looked out the window to see
what was going on outside.
What was that strange man doing to MY house?!
Mom called it 'power-washing'.
I called it 'terror'!
I couldn't stand it anymore,
so I hid under the couch.
When it became quiet again, Mom let me go
home to survey the changes.
I wasn't sure how I felt, so I contemplated
Then I heard Mom call me.
Well, it was a nice day after all.
I wasn't feeling very brave, so Mom brought
some of the tasty plant to me.
I rather enjoyed this method.
Mom went swimming for a bit, then
she came back for me.
I didn't even realize that we hadn't been to check the mail.
When we got back to the house,
I couldn't decide whether to go in or out.
That is a cat's place. I really don't know
why humans get so impatient.
After Daddy came home, he and Mom left for
a couple of hours.
When they finally returned, Mom absolutely refused
to take me for a nighttime walk.
I begged and pleaded, but she just wouldn't comply.
So I rebelled.
That didn't seem to make any difference,
so I came down and found a new way to entertain myself.
I played in my big toy box!
I played with my Traveling Bag...
I played with a string...
I played with McQueen.
Mom even helped a little.
Sometimes a cat's just got to entertain himself!
Then I played with Chewbacca-Mouse.
Until I finally got tired.
Of course, it's difficult to sleep well...
...when I open one eye and notice...
...that all the patio
stuff is still inside the house.
