I love a good mystery crime tale, don't you?
Especially when they happen in the vegetable garden.
I see pumpkins overturned and plumpest rats gobbling away.
Tomatoes nibbled gently.
Remnants of seeds scattered as a memory.
I don't mind.
But this morning, this morning there was grand commotion in the autumnal veggie garden...
Dogs barking like crazy.
Trying to climb in trees.
Shadows of pointy ears flashing up above...
Pumpkins with grand fang marks, such excitement!
I looked up through the branches, and what did I see?
But a beautiful healthy bobcat, looking down at me.
Here kitty kitty I exclaimed with fear and glee...
And then just like that, he started wagging his tail, whilst looking straight at me.
Oh you pretty pretty thing.
I wanted to hug him and love him.
Cuddle him in my lap.
Put him in a bonnet and plunk him in my antique baby carriage.
Take him to Petsmart, he he ;)
Of course, he is wild and dangerous, so I couldn't.
But I wanted to, oh my oh me.
The dogs were madly entranced, barking away.
Now, how to wrangle them in, so kitty kat could escape?
Well, all it takes is saying "who wants to go in the car?"
And they are off, racing.
Car equals burgers to them.
I shuffled them past the car and into the house -
And then I went out, watching the big pawed beauty gracefully leap from branch to branch, and run away into the little stream out back.
(look at those glorious paws!)
Of course, because I have a biggest worry wartiest animal loving heart...
I wondered, what is kitty eating?
Is he or she safe?
I love thinking that all night long, while I toss and turn, the purring creature sleeps outside my window, right in our tree.
What a glorious cat.
Wish he wasn't wild and would move in with us.
Wouldn't he look so handsome sitting on my bed?
Or in my big red chair?
Alas, some of us must run free.
Free in the cool breeze, tip toeing to and fro, freedom of the heart and soul.
Sounds like my own heart speaking there ;)
Any curious creatures in your home or garden??
I'd love to hear.
There is a HUGE light brown rat living in my flower garden.
His belly is big and round and extra lovely.
When I water he peeks out at me and runs back and forth.
The other day he lept right over my foot, onto the stair, and back into the rose bush.
Like he owns the place.
Mister Lovee doesn't like the idea at all.
But secretly, I love all things small.
ps: Can't wait to hear about any of your own little unexpected visitors.
I wish I wasn't allergic to cats, darn, double darn.
pss: Please use extreme caution if you ever see a bobcat. They can be dangerous. Get your pets away, and yourself. And use a telefoto lens if you want to take a pic ;)
psss: I am planning our Halloween soiree. It will be small on my end, but you all can go way out. Make it a blast! More very soon.
pssss: Thank you thank you thank you for your kind and encouraging words!
Is it okay to love people you don't know in person?
Me thinks yes ♥
