adventure kitty

the Mo, he worried me so tonight! he acted like his old self of ten years ago, went out in the evening, wouldn't come in, then poof! disappeared for several hours into the wee hours of the night.

he's home now, never fear. he appeared magically on the side stoop just before i was about to give up and go to bed.

i used to be used to this, but nowadays i don't like my elderly kitty to go off adventuring, especially at night. i not only called and called, but searched for him in a neighbor's yard with my flashlight, wandered up and down the block (oddly, a woman, perhaps my neighbor, was sitting on a small stool on the street talking on a cell phone the entire time he was gone) and contemplated braving the woods behind the house.

he seems happy and healthy lately, in fact i was remarking to j this weekend that it's as if the hyperthyroid never happened. right now he's on the ottoman beside me, pupils dialiated, belly exposed, tail moving, and telling me that it is time to PLAY.

I'm glad your Mo is home safely.

Last week in Denver I met a dog who, at age 13, has suddenly started playing "chase" and "fetch" and "try to get this ball from me" which he hasn't done for a decade. Maybe it's a message going out to all critters this month? Is the Rapture near?
