Ringing in the New Year
by Cat Crazy
It used to be that the house’s main bell ringer was Fireball, with an occasional contribution by Macaroni. However, in recent months Pepe has learned to jump up and run along the railing at the top of the stairs. (Mind you, he and his brother are front-paws declawed, so this is an activity that is not for the faint of heart!)He does it when the human is moving too slowly getting early-morning chores done upstairs, which of course is delaying his breakfast gratification. When the human is in the hall dawdling, as sleepy humans will do, he gets on the rail and runs along the blankets right up to the 2-legged. He then sticks that inquisitive nose (and face) out to see what’s taking her attention away from the all-important topic of food. If she’s still not paying attention, he squeaks at the silly human to hurry her up.When the human is in one of the bedrooms either pulling out clothes, changing water, or cleaning the multitude of litter boxes, he sits on the newel post and bangs on the wind chimes directly above him. I guess that’s his way of ringing in the new year.
Happy, healthy, prosperous 2016 everyone from the kitties and the lower lifeform (aka the human).
