Bukmister & Amber – Part 26

Wow! She’s putting up a fight. She’s vicious with those nails, and wants no part of this.
“Merrooow,” she snares. She’s fast and has a temper . . . and she’s out!
Amber Escapes

“Too small.” Lou looks at me but I ignore her and then I saunter off to see where Amber’s gone. She’s probably hiding underneath the bed. I find her right away. This nose of mine is just like radar, much more sensitive than any dog’s.

“Are you okay,” I ask. We don’t use words, but Amber knows exactly what I’m thinking.
“No! They’re going to put us in those bloody cages.”
“Yes. I told you that two days ago. Not for a short time either. . . We could die.”
“You’re such a drama queen,” she sniffles. Amber has a sinus problem.
“We’ll, we could. We’re going on the silver bird. I overheard Lou making the arrangements. I thought we would go First Class, but no, we will be on the floor . . . Economy.”
“Economy? You’re kidding.”
“In economy” I tell her. “We change planes in Paris.”
“I’d like to see Paris again,” she mewses.
“Right.” Amber is into the past lifetimes thing—reincarnation. I think she’s in for a rude unawakening.

    You two are going to have to watch what you say around those cats. Did you know they hang off every word? Maybe a few calming white lies won’t go astray. LOL

  2. Bruce, I’m sensing trouble… do you know how to handle a mutiny?

  3. Actually, a propos the first comment – they do know what you’re up to. I had some friends in South Africa, -vets – and they decided they couldn’t bring one of their cats here, she was such a disruptive, aggressive difficult creature. From the night they discussed it, she was as good as gold, and behaved herself forever after! She’s living here happily!
