Sadie caught a huge varmint to give to Victor for his 2nd Gotchaversary Day present.
Because I am the sole mancat on the premises (at this moment), the yards and house belong to me.
So I took it.
I started to walk it down the hill to the mailbox so our wonderful postal person, Curtis, could take it right out, but then I thought maybe it should be gift wrapped first.
I tried to give it back to Sadie for wrapping, but she was very upset with me and told me to do it myself.
I tried to bring it into the dining room so Mosaic Lady could wrap it up for me.
And then I remembered that she sucks at gift wrapping.
I suddenly noticed that the varmint was not moving much, so I tried to revive him.
He did not seem to want to play anymore.
I prayed over him and tried to do some hands-on, Reiki healing, but nothing.
I decided that a varmint corpse is not a very nice Gotcha Day gift.
They don't play very well.
I went to the front yard and cleaned myself up on my hot tub.
That was a lot of exertion and trouble I went to for Victor, with nothing to show for it.
Bianca and I watched Mosaic Lady use a big shovel to toss the dead varmint over the deck and into the canyon.
It's the thought that counts, anyway, right Victor?
And we are thinking of you today.
