It was blustery and cold this morning.
I got ready for work, with time to spare.
Or so I thought.
The OhWow cat went out 3 times after eating 3 breakfasts.
He didn’t stay out long: too cold.
Then he saw me put on my jacket.
The Oh Wows started in a mantra.
I had a brief conversation with him:
“No. You have been out 3 times. I am going to work, so you have to stay inside.”
I broke down, as usual, after approximately 30 oh wows and said, “Ok, but make it snappy.”
He gave me that %#%#%@%#% you look and sauntered out the door.
5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes.
Where is the hell is that cat?
I went out on the deck, “Half Pint!! Get in here! I have to go to work.”
All right. If that’s the way you want it. You will be outside all day.
Just then, I saw him: on the roadway, slowly walking up the driveway.
And I mean slowly.
There I am yelling for him to hurry up, freezing out on the deck, watching him meandering up the driveway, like it was a warm spring day.
Finally he shows up on the deck.
He reluctantly comes in.
I hightail it off to work, laughing the whole way.
Damn! That cat is smart.
Well, he isn’t a genius, but he certainly knows how to take control…. especially of me.
