Mindy and Boomer Have an Adventure Chapter Three

Chapter Three

It wasn’t long before Mindy got tired of my checking out the safety of the farm.

“This is just plain boring, Boomer.” Mindy whined, “Cats don’t like sniffing around and checking out things, we like to MOVE!”

“Well, you better like it…there are other fur animals out there who LIKE to EAT cats!  Since, I rather like you, I want to make sure it’s safe for us.

With that I took off, sniffing here and there and here and there, while Mindy sat on the fence and glared at me.

Too bad, I thought.  I MUST make sure we are safe.

It was while I was sniffing here and there Mom and Dad came out.

I joyfully ran over to them wagging my tail…and I must confess…completely forgetting all about Mindy and the adventure we were going to go on.

Meanwhile—-Mindy didn’t forget.

Gathering her feet—

off she went leaving everyone behind.

 

 

Mindy and Boomer Have an Adventure Chapter Three

Chapter Three

Okay.  We ran for a short spell.

Then Mindy decided to go this way and that way

and up and down

and we hadn’t really made it out of the farmyard.

“WHOA!” I bayed. “That’s enough running here and there and every which way and going NOWHERE!”

Mindy skidded to a stop and skittered ran back to me. “Why we stopping, Boomer? We are having lots of fun…there is so much to see and do?”

“Slow down, Mindy.  Let me get a feel of things.  I need to know if it’s safe to go out and about on the farm.”

“On the farm?!?!?!” Mindy gave me a very puzzled look.  I don’t really go out ON the farm, Boomer.  Mom won’t let me and I really don’t want to run into some of the furry creatures, and feathered hunters who live On the farm.  I just want to skitter and run and check things out AROUND the farmyard.”

“Oh!” I replied. “Okay, that works for me, but still, before we do anything, I HAVE to

check out the air,

the ground

and the all the sheds and buildings so I KNOW just what we are getting into.

I like adventures but at my very elderly age I need to pick my adventures carefully.”

With that I started checking out the air, the ground, around the buildings and the sheds,

with Mindy tagging along.
