Hooray for Un-dead Cats!



On my way home Saturday, I noticed a dead cat in the turn lane before my street and my heart stopped. I thought it was the cat that lives across the way whom I adore. For six years, she's always come over and let me love on her....total sweetie. I looked for her outside the rest of the evening to no avail and started to become certain it was indeed her.

To my happy surprise though, on my way home from the grocery store Sun. morning....there she was! Sitting at the edge of her driveway, licking her paws. I was so excited that I stopped the car, rolled down my window and said "Yay kitty kat!" Little did I know that her owner was out in the yard. He looked at me like I was out of my fucking mind.

  1. The owner would be more suprised to learn that his cat had come back from the dead.

  4. If your neighbor was a good friend, he would've smiled, realized you're a bit "eccentric" and waved. If he looked at you like you lost your marbles, I'm going out on a limb and suggest that this is not the first time you've done something to make him worry about his property values?

    If so, we want to read THOSE stories.

  5. Thanks for all the comments guys! I know I've been lame and haven't been reading people's stuff lately but I've had a bunch of crap going on. I have started writing again recently and hopefully will have something more than a blurb up soon. U all RULE!
