The other day I caught my cat, Scout, surfing the internet. She wondered why I had posted pictures of Abby on my blog but not her. I tried to take advantage of the moment and say that it was because Abby had completed more chores around the house and if only Scout would empty the dishwasher and do some dusting then she too could have a post of her own, but she saw right through me. That blasted sixth sense of hers.
I wish I wish I wish that I had been video recording the night two summers ago when we eye-witnessed an amazing hunting scene with Scout (as the predator). I am convinced we could have submitted it to Animal Planet, won some contest, and retired from the winnings. But alas, no video recording and no early retirement.
So instead of the outdoorsy, firey side of Scout, for now we will have to appreciate another aspect of her character. I like to call this portrait “Bed Head.”
