A Chick Ponders Bookish Things: When Life Interrupts Books

I hate when life interrupts my reading. Especially when I had three books I wanted to finish today, or at least come close to finish.

But life had other plans for me. Plans that involved me losing what little was left of my mind for about 7 hours.

See this cat:


This is my Dewey aka Dewbee Doo.  I am a crazy cat lady, but of the 11, yes I said 11 cats that I own, this one has an extra special place in my heart.

She was a stray...almost feral when she started coming around my yard. It took months of coaxing, but I finally tamed her. Last fall, her companion, Creamsicle. (I name all cats even ones I can't touch) was hit by a car. Dewey and Creamsicle had lived in my yard now for a year.

They weren't my cats but they were. If that makes any sense

We gave Creamsicle a proper burial with our beloved pets, and I gave Dewey a forever home.

Today she decided she wanted adventure, and escaped when I walked in the door.

7 hours later, I finally caught her.

All the neighbors now know I'm nuts.

How did I catch her...

She came in through the bedroom window! She crawled up on the porch roof via the honeysuckle bush.

I really hope I don't have a kittens to contend with in a few months..but with my luck, she got knocked up in those hours she was outside.

That my friends, is why I got absolutely no reading done today.

Glad she got back OK. Mika is very much an indoor cat (he's scared of the the outside world!), but he tend to head under the shed on the odd occassion he has escaped (and the suddenly realised where he is!).
