“Hey, Boomer! I’m bored. Do you want to do something?”
Snore, snerk, huh!?! Wha?! I opened my eyes to see Mindy cat staring right at my left eye.
Like RIGHT INTO MY LEFT EYE!!
I jumped up, knocked Mindy over, shook my head, watched Mindy tumbled sorta backward, then left and squirm to right, land on her feet facing me, while I stretched my whole body out as far as it could go; giving a HUGE yawn all at the same time!
Fully upright and staring right at me, Mindy glared, then gave a huge MEOW laugh. “Scared ya didn’t I?”
“Min, what is this all about? I was sleeping soundly and right in the middle of a very good dream.” I rather growled at her.
“I’m bored, Boomer. There is nothing to really do now. Everything is wet outside, the birds are hiding, the mice are hiding, and I’ve chased off all the stray cats. I need something to do.”
“Staying right here by the woodstove seems pretty okay by me,” I stated.
“I know. I like it too. But…. I still want to do something. Like maybe, when the rain stops, we could go exploring?”
“Exploring? Sure, Mindy, we can do that. Just as soon as the rain stops and Mom gets home (or Dad) whoever is first. They have to open the door for you to go outside. Then we will go exploring!
“OH! YAY! WONDERFUL!” Mindy yowled. “Let’s talk about what we will explore. You lay right there, and I will curl up next to you, and make plans.
“First you tell me what you want to see, then I will tell you what I want to see—-Boomer? Hey, Boomer! Are you already asleep?”
Shoot. I guess we will have to make plans after Mom and Dad get home. Scoot over Boomer, I want a nap also.
