Cats and Water Don't Mix
Life is pretty easy here on Mackinac Island. My pet, Allie and the monster, I mean, dog, seem to have found yet another dead body. This time floating in the water. If I had been there, I would have watched from shore and then maybe tasted it to see if it was alive or dead. Allie jumped in to save the person, but realized they were dead once she got them to shore.
I would never jump into the water. I might bat a fish or two with my paw, but cats and water don't mix. Truthfully, I've never been on a boat. I was born on the island. I adopted Allie after my mom moved in with her new boyfriend. Things have been pretty good ever since. I get regular food, strokes from Allie and her friends Jenn and Frances. But with this recent body, Allie has been acting more upset. It seems her boyfriend Trent is being distant because his sister is a murder suspect. No matter what Allie does, Trent keeps pushing her away. Poor Allie is beside herself. It makes her daydream and makes my job of soliciting pets and strokes from her all the harder. At least Rex comes by whenever Allie finds a body. I like him. He has warm hands.
Okay, I'm done talking. Peace out. Oh and the author is giving away a copy of ALL YOU NEED IS FUDGE. I have no idea why. All I need is tuna. Just saying. Leave a comment on your favorite pet's cutest habit for a chance to win.
