Bring us back to this scene, please. I did obtain the Tut tickets, and we’ll be attending in the middle of July, so I’m looking forward to that. I sowed some leftover cosmos seeds in one of the patio pots. Hopefully, they will sprout soon.
The next-door neighbors should not have a cat. When we woke up this morning and looked out the window, we discovered that they essentially leash it to some clothesline setup they have out back so it can walk around outside, but only so long as it stays inside the bounds of the clothesline, do you know what I mean? Anyway, one issue with this setup, which I believe has many, is that when another neighborhood outside cat swings by, things could turn ugly. Kiki, a local cat, came over, and the little leashed cat was not in a pleasant mood, as cats are. Cats are strange creatures, being so territorial and all.
Anyways I think Kiki was more curious that anything. They essentially just stared eachother down, their faces almost touching. There was definitely some tension brewing there. The “owners” of the leashed cat eventually came out and asked whether it was our animal. I went outside to see if I could scare Kiki away, but I couldn’t since there was a fence in the way. Anyway, I informed them that our cat remains indoors, and that the orange cat was named Kiki, and that he resides at a house to the south. Incidentally, we mentioned to them before that our cat stays inside when they asked us if we were missing a cat because one had been living in their basement, for about a month! Uhmmm,, what???! A story for another day, these people are a little whacked. Anyways, the neighbor lady claimed that one of their cats (Kiki’s owners) was killed by a coyote. Even more incentive to keep your cat inside! I see Kiki outside all the time since he’s a tough cookie. He appears to be older than I believe he is. His face reminds me of an old soul, but he’s not a mean or feral cat. He just likes to be outside, shaking his butt on bushes and marking that he’d been there. All of this is to say, and I’ll reiterate, these people should not have a cat. Or any pet for that matter. There was also another story with a dog that they had but I’ll save that for another time.
In the early evening, more commotion over at the same neighbors. Guess one of their daughters was going to her senior prom tonight as she came out in a gown and got picked up by a boy in a tux! They had some family there to taking some pictures. We watched.
