That's right. I may be 10 years old and Goldie may call me the clawless wonder but I showed them.

The MM was outside with the wee ones and I was hanging around the door wanting out. Since they were playing in the yard he opened the door and let me out sans harness. He is a little more laissez faire then the PM. I was enjoying my freedom, closely suspervised by the wee lass.



Canon, our friend up the road must have sensed I was out and trotted over a few minutes later. The PM was inside and heard the wee ones hollering so she ran out. Canon had reached the driveway and they were scared he'd hurt me, maybe not recognize me as a friend since it's been so long.


I wasn't scared one bit. I froze, staring as he walked closer. Look at my serious pose.


Then, in a black and white blur, I ran at him and he tried to hide in the grass.



I told him this was my yard and that he had to ask permission to stay here.


He agreed and ran to the pine trees. I was right on his tail, galloping like a horse.


We walked around for a bit then the PM thought I had enough excitement for one day and took me in.


This is what I saw as we walked back to the house. Miss Banshee saw the whole thing.


I think she even looks at me now with a new sense of respect.

Hi Shade. 10 is the new 5! It was great seeing you interacting with your friend Canon...very wise of you to reestablish the ground rules with him in a firm but gentle manner and then have fun together sniffing around the pine tree. You're one smart (and beautiful) tuxie lady!

Quiter an outing Shade. We think ya enjoyed it lots. Friend neighbor kitties are one thing, but sometimes ya gotta put them in their place. Especially in yer own yard!

Gracie said...

I guess you really showed who was the boss of your yard. I bet the kittie will think twice before he comes on your property without your permission. I hope your mom recovered from all of the action. The moms just cannot take things like that too well.
