During a restless, rainy night…

During a restless, rainy night…

I was stretched out on my back in my bed, watching the raindrops trying to make their way past my window with vigor…

I had let my slaves out for the night… I wanted to be alone…

Suddenly, a popping sounds came from the kitchen and my ears and head perked up… I didn’t hear any other movement so I rested my head back down…

Earlier, I had walked into the bathroom and brushed up against a little wet puddle on the pink tiled floor..

Even though it had dried.. I felt a little unclean.. so I decided to start licking myself to remove all traces of the unpleasant experience…

After I was thoroughly finished cleaning the area, I decided to investigate the prior popping sound further… I rolled from my back onto my paws and arched my back into a nice stretch…

I jumped off of my bed and walked in a cool relaxed pace out of my room and into the dark hallway that leads to my living room and kitchen…

As I entered the living room, everything was quiet… The sound must have been one of those pesky insects trying to make their way into my home again…

I looked up at the beige colored couch and with one swift movement, I jumped up on the arm of the couch and walked across the back all the way to the other end and jumped again to the chaise… From there I could investigate everything happening outside through my big windows…

My main slave knows to leave the blinds open at night for my viewing pleasure…

I was looking at the wet leaves on the lemon trees outside and the it was pretty dark out… I saw the little crickets jumping all over to find shelter from the rain… There were no birds in site tonight… and my friend was not home next door.. I was happy because her meowing has kept me awake at night.. Ever since I offered her a bit of food upon her moving into the complex, she hasn’t stopped flirting with me.. and it is just too overbearing for my taste.

I started to get a little sleepy from the sound of the rain and began to close my eyes.

My drifting off was interrupted by the sound of little legs crawling up the wall to my left… With my eyes seemingly closed, I looked to the left and as I suspected… There was an eight legged spider crawling to its home… I pretended to not notice…

Then with one leap I jumped at the wall, one paw in attack mode and swung at it.. The spider came flying to the ground, screaming “Damn you cat!”. So I leaped at the carpet trying to catch it but it was too fast for me and scurried under the chaise.. All I could do was stare at it with my big green eyes as the chaise was too low to the ground for me to get underneath.. The spider flipped me off with four legs and just stood its ground knowing I couldn’t get it.

“I will catch you next time. No creature has permission to enter this house without my approval.”

Then I felt hungry from the hunt and walked over to my plate to finish eating my dinner… The dinner tasted good as always.. I knew my slaves would be back soon to groom me and clean up the dishes so I walked back to my bedroom and jumped on my bed and went to sleep.
