Otis’s social whirlwind of a day

As the song goes: “We’re here for a good time, not a long time…”


I am on watch at my sliding glass doors.
It’s dead out there today.
A leaf flutters by.
A dumb fly slams into the window,
then falls into a crack in the deck. Awesome!

All’s quiet, when, suddenly…

A recent acquaintance, Bunnykins, hops by, googling me with her big, round eyes. Mmm mmm!

Then, my long-time pal, Chippie, stops in briefly to show off his latest finds.
As if a couple of bird seeds are enough to impress me??

Last, but not least, Squirt the Squirrel pops up to say, “Whazzup?”
I don’t know what his deal is.
He’s gone before I even have time to bat the glass with my paw. So rude!

Enough socializing—time to move to the front porch and
kick off the weekend with some chillaxin’. TGIF!

Happy Friday! Meows & hisses,

    Oh! Otis does look a lot like my Balinese cat Keona! He sits by the front door just like Otis, just watching the critters. Once he had a squirrel girlfriend who came to the front porch to visit him everyday. He seemed to enjoy her visits. Very cute. I think she thought he was a big male squirrel, because of his fur color. So handsome! https://storieswithnobooks.com/2013/11/07/glass-door-relationships/

    Nice to see Otis has some buddies to chat with, though I think the fly’s chatting days are over. Have a good weekend Otis!
