On my walk through the neighborhood today I found a turtle who had fallen asleep in a tree.
You may recall that Barnaby got out of the yard and was attacked by another cat a few weeks ago. Since then he has stayed close to me but last night he went out again and didn’t come home until morning.
I stayed up most of the night waiting for him. When he finally returned home I asked him why he had stayed out all night and he shrugged and said that is what cats do.
I sat him down and reminded him of the dangers on the street. He reminded me that he is bigger now and can take care of himself.
Hmm, youngsters think they know it all.
Anyway, I insisted that he attends my Self Defense for Cats classes. He is doing quite well. In this picture he is demonstrating a lethal stranglehold on the little person’s old teddy bear.
Street teddy bears beware!
