Life Part Two

The adventures of Fay and Bob as they move beyond the 9 to 5 life

A few words from Smoky and Sabrina


Smoky and Sabrina asked me to give you an update from them.

Sabrina says “Smoky and I were good friends when we first came to Fay and Bob’s house.   We would even sleep in the same chair together.We chase each other around and for the most part get along ok.   Until last week.  Smoky got in a fight with me and he was really a bad kitty.   He weighs almost twice as much as I do and I couldn’t get away.   Bob had to pull Smoky off me.  Now I’m kind of scared of him.   I didn’t get bit but I sure didn’t like it. Fay and Bob and I can’t figure out what happened.   He is usually such a gentle cat.”

Smoky says “When I want my food and water in the morning and Fay and Bob aren’t up yet I go knock things over.   I have broken three glasses by hitting them into the bathroom sink so now they have plastic glasses.   I also knock over toothbrushes, lotion bottles and anything else on the bathroom counter.   When that doesn’t work I go on Fay’s night stand and knock stuff off.  There is a big jewelery box with drawers and knobs.   This morning I figured out how to pull open the drawers and pull stuff off.   I did it twice and it was so much fun.  That got Fay up.”

Sabrina gets the last word: “I like to hunt so much and I am a very good little hunter.   Smoky only has caught bugs.  I have brought home lots of lizards to Fay and Bob, most of them alive.   Sometimes they forget to do “mouth check” on me and I get to bring them in the house and let them go.   This morning I was an especially good hunter.   I brought a chipmunk home.   I just grabbed it by the fur on the top of it’s neck like I would carry a little kitten.  I didn’t hurt it, and carried it up the steps and sat by the sliding glass door waiting for Fay to see me.   She was so excited, she went and got Bob so I could show him my catch.   This is the biggest thing I ever caught.  I got excited when Bob came and dropped the chipmunk and it ran away and Bob wouldn’t let me chase it.  I take such good care of my family.”

Fay says “That’s life with our two fur children.  I couldn’t figure out what the big think in Sabrina’s mouth was.  I could see it still very much alive.  We’ve been keeping an eye on Smoky so that he doesn’t pick on Sabrina.   I don’t know what got into him to attack her.  Now I am trying to figure out how I can keep Smoky out of the 9 drawers in my jewelery box.   He could really make a mess of things.”

  1. Very engaging~~~you are a great writer and story teller!!

    • Thank you so much. I have to say that after 4 1/2 years of writing the blog and over 650 posts, I finally realized that I like to write. It surprised me. I try to keep my posts short, with pictures when possible and upbeat. The topics vary from travel to community to the cats so hopefully I find something that my varied audience of close friends, relatives, acquaintances and strangers like. Your compliment means a lot.
