The WATCH CAT.
It s been a helluva week.
I’ve been absent….
Here’s the story.
What is Sunday morning to you? To me it’s the morning I lay in, read the newspaper, and get my daily dose of caffeine.
This past Sunday was no exception. I expected the same routine to summarise my weekend.
Unfortunately it was not to be.
Mimmo decided to wake us very early. She is possibly the quietest cat we have. If she voices her opinion it is going to be for a damned good reason. To be honest; she was loud and obnoxious as Stig – conversing outside my bedroom door. Just as I was about to get up and tell her to keep her trap shut, Blu started to bark and I simultaneously heard banging –which I thought was on the window downstairs.
I trust my gut. Once again it never failed me. I decided that instead of waltzing up the passage I would wake my husband first.
I jostled his arm and said “Blu is NOT happy.”
He stuck his head out of the window and shouted at criminals outside.
*we live in a complex and we are in the second storey apartment*
He went up the passage and found our lounge window open with one of the criminals ready to climb in and have a field day with our hard earned belongings.
The young deviant bolted, as the remainder of the complex dogs began to bark, neighbours emerged from their properties sleepy-eyed with concealed weapons.
The police arrived timeously – even their fast response was too slow for the agile burglars.
My first thoughts were WOW – who would have thunk it? We have a “Watch cat”. Grateful for my blind cats’ astute senses; Blu’s fast response bark; and our safety I went on with the day; watching my children’ s responses to the mornings commotion.
I expected a return – an attempt to finish of the job the thieves were unable to complete on Sunday morning. Monday and Tuesday then went off without a hitch; besides the spring flu which encompassed my entire being, and my son moving into my daughters room as a safety measure.
In the early hours of Wednesday morning Blu started to bark again. Immediately my heart started to race and I woke my husband. One of our neighbours started to shout and fired shots at an intruder trying to steal items from one of the cars parked outside.
Our neighbour raced up the road in hot pursuit of the swift robbers. He returned empty handed as the police and security cars arrived to investigate.
While living in the Wild Wild West, we were once again alerted and “safe” thanks to the hero’s of the week. Blu and Mimmo aka Princhipessa aka WATCH CAT; who have been showered with treats; loves and “well done’s“ this week.
All I can say is never doubt your animals. Keep them safe; because without their heightened senses; you could be worse off.
My word for the week: GRATEFUL.
