My cat Kato... is part siamese. He is usually a clown... and attacks me in the morning as I walk down the hall to the shower. Silly cat.
Well... some weekends, I leave him at home alone - while I go visit my aunt for a day and a half. I usually come in Sunday afternoon, greet him, and then let him outside for some 'play time'.
There have been a few occassions where... pissed... he runs out - and I don't see him until the next morning.
Today, I let him out - after greeting him, and he went out and disappeared - looking to have some fun and sun.
This evening, I opened the door - and turned on the porch light. I can usually hear his 'bell' on his collar when he comes up the steps onto the porch, wanting to be let in.
Well... I heard a bell... but it was the neighbors' cat - also wanting in. But... there was Kato lying on the porch. I told the neighbors' cat to go away - which she did, and Kato just lay there.
I called him... and he finally - reluctantly, struggled to his feet... and limped through the opened screen door, into the living room.
OH MY GOSH!!! I was thinking... Kato got hurt!!!
He had laid down inside - on the living room carpet... and so I shut the screen door and immediately went to him - expecting to see a half-mangled front foot - or something.
Well... I knelt down, and gently picked up his foot... which was through his collar - causing him to limp.
I removed his foot - he got up 'healed' *mental a preacher yelling 'You ARE HEALED!'* - and walked over to his food dish to eat.
Always the clown.
I have tightened his collar... again. Someone in the neighborhood... who he 'visits' keeps loosening it - thinking he will 'strangle' himself, I suppose... but it's a special collar that has an elastic doo-dah - that will stretch apart (and possibly break) - IF - he ever gets it caught on anything.
(I wish they would leave his collar alone.)
So - Kato is okay... he was just in here - after eating some yummy canned kitty food, and getting a good lap-petting from me.
Tomorrow is another adventure.
