I was out hunting early this morning with Mom…well, Mom wasn’t hunting,
Mom was checking the end of the field to see what rows of water didn’t come through. Dad was out IN the field checking to see how wet everything was—
when FREDDY FOX RAN BY…AS FAST HAS HE COULD GO!
Then Freddy stopped…looked at me…I about passed out.
He barked…Fox barks are really different — go here to hear one — which scared me worse.
Then I listened, he was barking for Boomer.
“MEOWWWWWWWWWWWW!” I screamed. “Boomer isn’t outside, Boomer is sleeping in the kitchen on his big soft fluffy bed.”
“Get Boomer and have him come out…it’s time we had an adventure.” Freddy said to me.
“Not right now, Freddy. Boomer has been sick and is resting. Maybe when he feels better.” I replied.
Freddy and I heard one of the four-wheelers startup.
Then we heard the other four-wheeler startup.
“GOTTA RUN! See Ya Around.” Freddy yelled as he took off toward the upper end.
That works for me I murmured, turning around
I flopped down and gave myself a very nice dust bath.
Then I jumped up and looked around.
I’m sure glad that fox is gone!
Off I went heading into the field to see about my breakfast!
