Sentimental old fool

Friday 5th September 2008, 20:00h

My cat Adelaide snuck out of the house three hours ago.

I looked for her in vain.

So I left a porch door, and the front door open.

10 minutes ago I heard her “miaow”, and there she was, back at home.

Call me “sentimental” or maybe even “silly”.

But I had tears in my eyes as I hugged and caressed Adelaide, thankful that she was at home, and safe.

  1. Thank goodness she's safe! Our kitties have occasionally snuck out the front door, making my heart stop in fear! Thankfully, they always scoot right back in when I sternly tell them they must.
