Such was last evening - Actually I hadn't seen him since he "breezed" through late the night before - the nice weather we've been having leads to lots of naps outside - under bushes and trees or in trees -
So that's where I went looking last night after I had been calling for about 1/2 hour and he hadn't appeared. Outside to look in the tall grass by the creek, under bushes and shrubs in the yard.
They like to play up on the roof - gets them closer to the birdies, I guess? They nimbly run up the river birch until they get to the limb that looks down on the roof and jump down - then go racing back and forth - I'm always afraid that they will think they can go running after a bird and oops, the bird flew away - and cats don't have wings...
The Shepherd was leaving to go to a meeting, so he wasn't in a looky-loo frame of mind.
Well, even thought The Shepherd said he didn't think that George was in the greenhouse, I thought I'd better check.
Being homemade, it has a big clunky heavy door - I peered through the cracks between the door and the frame and didn't see anything, but, just in case, I heaved and pushed and pulled and finally got the door open.
Who do you think came trotting out. ...
"Oh, Hai Mummy - thank you for releasing me from that prison cell. Purr, purr, purr."
Sigh of relief.
So I sat under the eves of the barn in one of my favorite chairs and we had a snuggle fest. I had the cordless phone in my pocket, "just in case", so I called my sister and we had a nice visit.
It was raining, but it wasn't really that cold, especially since I had on a long sleeved fleece pull-over, a fleece vest, a rain coat and a cat - I sat and pretended that I was watching the eclipse - "hmm - is it getting darker? No, that's because it's getting late. I guess I'll go in and fix my dinner." George seemed to concur so off we went.
