Mr. Wiggly Butt
Most of the time, Caesar is the epitome of civility and decorum. He is regal and generous and kind. He also is a tad serious. However, there are a few activities that bring out his inner kitten, and that is a joy to behold.
A couple of times a week during the early morning hours, he can be heard running up and down the stairs with a toy mouse in his mouth making strange little moaning sounds. (That’s the human’s cue to get up and go praise him for his hunting prowess.)
And when the dastardly fishing pole comes out and that annoying little piece of denim fabric dances across his back where he can’t reach it, he becomes a fearsome hunter, leaping and twisting in the air in balletic perfection.
However, dangle that piece of fabric on the floor and wait a few moments and all of a sudden the leaping and swiping ceases and Caesar crouches down in intense concentration. If you don’t move or make a sound, all of a sudden the butt starts wiggling back and forth, the tail straight out, as the carnivore prepares to pounce. And pounce he does with remarkable speed. So much for Mr. Sophistication then!
