Yesterday was completely normal.
No ladders, no carpet cleaners.
I slept on the window sill well into the day.
When Mom and I visited Nice Lady in the office,
I was on my best behavior.
Afterward, I enjoyed some time on the patio.
Then Wednesday Guy came and took Mom away.
I've gotten very attached to Mom,
so while she was gone I put Mimzy in my food bowl for comfort.
I was eager to do something with Mom when she came home.
Anything would do. Some play, a nighttime walk...
...but she was hungry and tired.
Eventually I gave up trying to tempt her.
Then, to my surprise, she tried to entice me to play.
I put little effort into it.
If Mom was going to do something with
me, I wanted it to be my choice.
So I sat near the door and waited.
"Yes! Harness on, please!"
The most wonderful of all things Mom could do with me!
I got a nighttime walk!
