Romeo, the black & white neighbor kitty, has been hanging out way too much at my place lately.
Have seen him on several occasions lounging under the solar panels.
Spotted him many a warm spring day cooling himself under the pines & near the Icky Pond.
Just yesterday I caught him sprawled out on one of the shelves in my garage. Was swishing his tail as if it were a painter's brush and he the painter.
I spent quite some time jumping from milk crates, over the air compressor and onto tool boxes to try to reach him. Was even able to make it to the shelf just below him at one point.
Had to resort to enlisting dad the moment he walked through the garage door though. Ran right to him. Widened my eyes. Looked right into his. And let out a "check out what I found" ruuuufff at dad. Looked over at Romeo. Back at dad. Let out another "you gotta help me with this one" ruuuuuufff! Lead dad to Romeo's shelf and let out a "can you believe the nerve?" ra, ra, ra!
Dad pats his butt. Romeo pounces on the floor. I leapt right toward him. He takes off out the garage door. I'm chasing & hollering at him. Next thing I know Romeo's turned himself around and I've got a big kitty claw extended paw coming right at me. I duck to miss the swat. Let out another "is this my garage or yours?!" grrrrrrrrr ra, ra, ra! And chase him up & over the fence and back into his yard.
Think that Romeo just needs to learn this Juliet's no force to be reckoned with.
