The other day I told you about the Munro war with Austin, the neighboring cat, and how Austin was winning hands down. Yesterday I had a victory for the home team, and I’m still chuckling about it. I was busy writing when I heard Austin’s bell. I looked up and saw him wander past the sliding door in front of where I was sitting. He’s a curious kitty and was sniffing in the flower garden. Then he noticed our water feature, which is a witch’s cauldron. He stood up on his hind legs to peer inside and that was when I snuck up behind him. I opened the window and made a loud barking sound. Poor Austin almost jumped out of his ginger stripes he got such a fright. He scuttled off under our hedge with me hot on his tail. I barked again and he jumped over the fence into a neighboring property.
Chuckling, I returned to my writing. Heck, I was so pleased I would have wagged my tail if I’d had one. About ten minutes later, I heard Austin’s bell again. I ran outside, making noise and Austin ran along the top of the fence in a real panic. He leapt into his own section and I haven’t seen him since. Honestly, I probably shouldn’t feel so pleased with my victory over a cat, but it made my day.
We are going to put down some chili powder as some of you suggested, but haven’t yet because it’s rained so much.
Janice Seagraves presented me with a blogging award yesterday. Thanks so much, Janice!
I’m meant to present the award to fifteen people. I could probably do that easily enough but I think I’d like to present the award to all of my visitors today. You’re probably a regular visitor anyway.
Enjoy the award and thanks for visiting me.
