“I want in—Don’t you TLC Cai-Cai?”
“I want in now!”
“Well, I think you are going to have to wait.” TLC Cai-Cai replied with all the wisdom of a cat.
“Why? Where is Mom? Where is Dad?”
“Let me look” TLC Cai-Cai responded. “Inside. Dad is inside.”
“I WANT IN NOW———HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”
“Oh, hush! Mom is out here somewhere. Dad is inside. He doesn’t listen when you cry.”
“WOW! What was THAT?!” Mom asked as she came around the corner with her wheelbarrow.
Suddenly Dad was at the back door.
“WHAT was THAT?” We all asked Dad.
“It sounded like a gun!” Mom exclaimed.
“It was—Dove season has begun. And our new neighbors are sighting in their guns.” Dad explained.
“Oh, geez, Get in the house quick, Fur Kids…. guns and little animals don’t mix AT ALL!”
Mom opened the door.
