Yesterday Mom was gone for much of the day.
When she was home, I just wanted to sleep.
That is, until night came around.
I asked her for a nighttime walk.
What she gave me was a compromise.
She put me on the tether outside.
During the day I stay obediently on the patio, but at night
I can't resist the temptation to wander off.
So it's either the tether or the leash at night.
I sat out there for a long time, taking in the smells and sounds.
The kitties upstairs were watching the night from behind their window.
I called to them, but all they did was stare at me.
So I sat under my window and tried to stare up at them.
I couldn't see them from that angle,
so I just enjoyed the nice elevated seat.
Eventually, of course, I went back inside and snuggled up next to Mom on the couch.
