Friday Creature

There was quite the street drama here in the neighborhood last week when Boris, the Russian Blue who lives across the street, got stuck on the lowest branch of a very, very tall tree.


He spent the night up there and by morning, everyone in the vicinity could hear that he was very unhappy with his options for getting down. After giving over part of the afternoon in an effort to coax and/or prod him down, our heroic neighbor finally climbed up quite a long ladder to retrieve the cat, who was, by then, beside himself. Afterward, Boris did his best to pretend it had been some other cat up there making all that noise all morning...


Happy Friday, Mayday, Beltaine and International Workers' Day, everyone! The creatures are, as always, boarding the ark all weekend. Have a great one (if you haven't read it yet, check out my 2005 post about one of Chattanooga's most bizarre May Day traditions)!

Cats. Always pretending they meant to do that.



Boris is a handsome fellow!
