You’ll never guess what happened. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse – life suddenly got better.
All day long I cursed Momma, Boy-Dadda and the Little Thing for relocating me here and depriving me of my puff balls. But this evening, as Momma and Boy-Dadda were getting ready for bed, Momma pulled something out of a plastic bag. Then she smiled at me and said, “Don’t play with this,” as she dropped it on the floor in front of me.
“Don’t play with this.” I repeated in a sarcastic tone. “When has that ever worked?” She’s out of her mind. Her marbles must be in the same box as my missing puff balls.
I walked right over to where she dropped the object and took a sniff. Dear diary, it was the sweetest, most familiar scent. I knew instantly, the object was, in fact, one of my beloved puff balls.
I grabbed it before it could escape and ran out of the bedroom. “Where have you been?” I cried. “Bad puff ball! Bad, Bad Bad! How could you leave me like that? You know how lonely I get with out you.”
Puff ball just sat there a piece of cotton. I picked puff ball up again and carried it from room to room, chastising it while giving it a tour at the same time. Then to make it perfectly clear that disappearing was completely unacceptable, I took Puff ball down stairs and drowned it in my water dish. That’ll teach it!
Later that night, Puff ball and I sat outside of Momma and Boy-Dadda’s door getting caught up. I told Puff ball all about the car ride, my brief stay in Atlanta and how Boy-Dadda left Little Missy and I all alone for weeks, days, minutes, years and months. I would have meowed the night away but Boy-Dadda opened up the door, laughed, then said, “Hi goof.” After which, he scooped up Puff ball, dropped it inside the bedroom and shut the door.
“Well that was rude,” I said. Not having much choice in the matter, I decided to go downstairs and raid the kibble dish. After that, I saw Little Missy sleeping on the edge of the couch, so, I knocked her off and then went back upstairs.
