Then Roxy died. Her kids – all nice enough – had their own families and pets, so they asked Erin to take me. She did, and I moved to her apartment. Which was Really Small, and did not have a window overlooking the park. Then she put me in a crate in her car and drove and drove and drove.
And here we were: our cabin in the woods. Took me some getting used to, I’ll tell you that for nothing.
But you know what? There are mice in the woods. Mice to chase, and if I’m lucky, catch. (And no, I’m not a catch-and-release kind of guy. I kill to eat. But don’t tell Erin. Although I bet she’s figured it out – sharp one, that girl.) And deer to tease. Even bears! Places to run and play, and places to lie in the sun where no one can see me.
I guess that makes me a country cat, doesn't it?
Do you have a favorite place in the woods? Tell me in the comments and I'll paw -- or draw -- the winner of a copy of Death al Dente Wednesday evening!
