Laying on the floor. Stretch.
The Girl walks in. “Obi, you want to help me get my pajamas on?”
Sure. Stretch. Follow The Girl down the stairs.
The Girl stops and puts finger near wall. “Look, Obi Wan, a big ol’ wolf spider.”
Look at finger. Look at finger. Look at finger as The Girl taps the wall. Hey! There’s a spider on the wall!
Jump at the spider, fall to the floor. Jump at the spider, fall to the floor. Jump at the spider, fall to the floor. Jump at the spider and grab him on the way down to the floor.
He runs away! He turns and comes back! Aaaaaaaah! Jump out of the way.
Smack the spider. Look at paw. See spider on the floor. Smack the spider.
Where’s the spider? Jump back.
Where’s the Spider! Jump to side.
WHERE’S THE SPIDER!?! Jump three times in a circle.
The spider is on the floor, rolled into a ball. Smack the spider.
Declare victory and strut down the hall. Come on, Girl, let’s get those pajamas.
It’s Thunder Thursday! I have some really good options for guest fuzzy this week, but I just have to show you this video. This cat, Sadie, is a hero. She is calm in the face of imminent threat. And her boy is very lucky to have her. Watch her eyes when he coos – that is the look of suppressed panic.
I love the look in her eyes. And how utterly still she is in the face of sure danger. Panicked trust?
“My girl will save me before this thing eats me. My girl will save me. My girl will save me…”
Does your cat eat the spiders?
Nope. Just leaves the pathetic carcass for The Girl to pick up.
