“Boomer! Let’s get on the move! Sleeping our lives away is boring. Just plain boring!” Mindy meowed at me.
“WHAT!” I sputtered. “You, a cat; who sleeps at LEAST sixteen (16) hours in twenty-four (24) hours, is telling ME sleeping is BORING?!?!”
“Oh, stop your sputtering and let’s go!” Mindy walked to the kitchen. Suddenly stopped. Stopping so suddenly I bumped into her.
“Why did you stop, Cat?” I grumbled.
“The door, Boomer. We need Mom to open the door so we can go out!”
Mindy turned and bounded up the stair meowing for Mom. I could hear her heavy bounces on the stairs; one step-two step bounce, MEOW, one step-two step bounce, MEOW!
From far away, and far off I heard Mom’s tiny voice, “You want out, Mindy? Okay, just a minute. Let me finish—”
“Oh, alright,” Mom replied.
Then I heard Moms’ footfalls across the upstairs floor. Then I heard Mindy start bounding back down. As soon as I heard Mindy’s very loud cat footfalls, I pushed my nose against the back door, shoved it open with my shoulders and WAM! I was out and the back door slammed behind me! Hehe
I walked over to the large silver water bowl and started helping myself to huge laps and gulps of cold, delicious…BRRRRRRRRRRRR ICE WATER!
I swallowed the very last sliver of ice just as Mindy came slithering out the back door.
Let’s go, Boomer! The world is waiting!”
Mindy picked up her paws gave a little hop, skip and dance
peeling off toward the Butler Grain Bins.
I watched for a short while, gathered my paws under me and sped after her.
AWAY on an Adventure, WE GO! I bayed!
