Today I’m getting a visitor! One of my favorite visitors….my Mom’s sister, Aunt Carol is stopping by on her way home from visiting her daughter in Richmond. Aunt Carol is one of the only humans other than my Mom and Dad who I’ve allowed to see me and who I’ve played with. I guess I just can tell she’s an animal lover and she speaks softly and doesn’t scare me like most other humans. See, normally when the doorbell rings or I hear a strange voice in the house, I go hide in my “safe place” which is in the basement. I’ll come back out and be my usual crazy self when I sense danger is gone. Well, when Aunt Carol first came here I was just a baby – and she came down to my safe place and found my hiding spot and coaxed me out and talked to me…..I could tell from her voice she was “safe”…..so from that day I trusted her and I’ll come play with her on the stairs (our game is hide and seek!) when she visits us.
Mom says it’s a big joke with people when she tells them about me – everyone calls me the invisible cat because they know I’m “around” but never see me! Not with my Aunt Carol…..she KNOWS I’m real because she’s SEEN me…………..up close and personal.
So she will be here around noon. She and Mom are going out to lunch together so I guess I’ll just have to wait until its my turn to play with her. Sigh….I guess I can’t ALWAYS be #1 around here!
