“Freddy!” I bayed. “Freddy come back!”
Mindy screamed and tried to hide under my tail…
under MY TAIL!
“Be calm, Mindy, it’s Freddy he will help us.”
“Not Freddy, well, not this time anyway. Well, I don’t think he will. I just need his help, Mindy. Stay as close to me as you can, attach yourself. We have to have help to get from here to home. Freddy is our best bet.”
I looked around and saw Freddy trotting back to me.
“Hey, Boom! Man, it’s good to see you again.” Freddy high-fived my right front paw with his left front paw.
We started to chest bump when I realized I had Mindy attached to my hip.
“Hey, Freddy, I need your help.”
“Sure, Buddy. Whatever Can I do?” Freddy smiled his huge foxy smile.
“I need to get home. And I need to get Mindy…here Mindy, say Hi. Home. It’s getting onto Coyote prowling time and I need to get Mindy back to Mom and Dad before she becomes Coyote lunch.”
Freddy looked around my body, saw Mindy all scrunched up tight against my hip.
“Well, well, hum mm, soft yummy cat…drool, slobber, slurp, Home, you say. Okay. I can do that. But we have to be moving along fast I passed two coyotes heading toward this area a few minutes ago.
“Come on!” Freddy waved his paw and took off down the farm road. I’ll take the lead and you bring up the rear Boomer. Mindy you can run in the middle.”
“YEOWL! I’m not going anywhere but right next to you Boomer! You get right up there close to Freddy and I’m staying attached to your hip.”
The first Coyote ran right in front of Freddy.
