There is something exciting down at the barn today according to the Manx Brothers and the Sundogs. Mama Jo does not agree.
The weather man or woman said it was going to be in the triple digits today and I believe it. On top of that there is some new hay to be put away. As anyone who has ever had the pleasure of doing this chore knows it is a GDEC. Get Done Early Chore.A chore the Manx Brothers wish I would put off for at least one more day. That is because to a barn cat a trailer full of new hay is like a five star hotel room…..for free. Milton loves his large hotel room. He found the softest bale in the back to bed down, the way kitties like to do. When the front door was closed the room offered unlimited security and wall to wall windows. Mangus on the other hand did not have sleeping on his mind. Hay bale stacks mean the hunt is on, there is work to do. “Why are you looking at me? I have work to do. Breakfast.”If first you don’t succeed, try another crack. Milton is not impressed. “The sounds of crunchy bones are singing in my ears.” Crazed cat honing in with sonic ears is all I can say about this look. Spasm attack. Spasm attack, down the crack. Milton is still not impressed and Mangus is not sleepy. “Up in the trees or down the crack…..hmm. What do I want for breakfast?” Even ruthless hunters need to stop and groom. And rest. But not for long. From the mouths of kitties…….”There is new territory to explore.” Milton disagrees. The bed is too good to give up right now.In Mangus’s world …”Where have I launched myself to now?” “Immediately search for a way out.” “Easy Out” “Back to safety.” “I’m out of here”“And I don’t need no stinking key.” And Miss Little Angel lies in wait while the chores get done.
