Charlie has been a busy cat. Early mornings are fantastic for him. He has learned how to catch humming birds, something that drives me crazy. I love those little birds, zipping all over the place. After 4 in one week, two in one morning, Charlie got banned from going outside in the early morning. He hates the new rules, inside until 8 am when it is too hot to go hunting. 8 aM is perfect time for bigging the beginning daily snooze on a day with high temperatures and high humidity.
And then in the evenings he becomes lively again. One of his favorite tricks is escaping outside after dinner. If he gets out, then he waits our of reach for the cry “Sally, Sophie, Charrrrlieeeeeeee. Dinner Time”. Then everyone races to the kitchen for a second round of dinner.
Here’s how Charlie looks when he realizes that he is being trapped, yes cruelly trapped inside, while the birds are waiting for him outside.
