Things are not as they seem!
Playing along with Cate from Show My Face and Yes, Scribe Fans, my 6 words are sad, but oh, so true. Let me explain.
Pepper is an Indoor Cat. As such, she spends most of her time, as should be expected, indoors. Except when she's outdoors. When she escapes, or "flees the asylum," as I like to say, she doesn't head to the freedom of the Great Outdoors. No, sadly, she decidedly does not.
She heads straight to the teeny-tiny crawl space under the screened porch. Where nobody can go but she.
And then she won't come out.
We spend about 4 hours 2 Sundays ago, trying to get the durn kitty back inside. Spent another 6 or so on Mother's Day, trying to corral her again.
Many of you would say, "Oh, let her get a taste of freedom. She's a cat. She'll know when to come in." Yet this is not always the case. Pepper has been known to remain on the lam for huge stretches of time. And I fear the dark in my neighborhood.
We have all manner of wild critters roaming near our crib on the outskirts of Suburbia. No, not Lions, Tigers & Bears, but rather Racoons, Foxes & Coyotes, oh my! And a fat little thing like Pepper would be just their cup of tea. Or Kitty Kibble, as it were.
So don't let this Cute Cat fool ya. She's really the devil...in disguise.
