Missing Pieces Mystery #7
By Joyce and Jim Lavene
I love living in Duck, North Carolina. My friend, Dae O’Donnell, is the mayor of Duck. She’s very kind and frequently understands exactly what I’m saying.
Life didn’t start this way for me. I was a rescue cat, abandoned when there was a murder in my home and my mother was on the street for a short while. Dae helped my family out of a tight scrape with her ability to see things that others can’t. She can touch anything and find the person it belongs to. For me, that meant saving my life.
But that was a long time ago. I’m happy living in the O’Donnell household – most of the time. Dae’s grandfather runs a fishing boat charter service so there is always leftover fish. Dae made a special tote bag with my name on it so she could take me to work with her at her shop, Missing Pieces.
Then something awful happened. Mary Catherine Roberts came to live with us. She’s okay – maybe better than okay because she’s a pet psychic who can really understand everything animals say. The only drawback is that she travels everywhere with her cat, Baylor.
They should call him Baleful, if you ask me!
He lords it over me like I’m yesterday’s garbage. I’m supposed to get out of his way when he comes through. He expects me to share my food with him and doesn’t reciprocate. When no one is looking, he pushes me out of the way. I hate that cat!
But recently there was another change in the household. Mary Catherine went to live somewhere else and took Baleful out of my life. Everyone seems sad about it. I don't get it.
I’ll never understand humans anyway. They’d rather sit and watch a talking box in the living room than play with a ball! And Dae makes the most disgusted face when I catch a mouse and bring it to her to eat. Come on people! I’m sharing my food here!
I hope Dae and Gramps cheer up soon. I don’t like seeing them unhappy. They’ve done so much for me.
I’ll do something for them that will make them feel better! I’ll stand in front of the talking box tonight and purr as loud as I can. That will make them feel better, right?
Who doesn’t feel better when they hear a cat purr?
