What happened to you yesterday? I didn’t see you all day. Were you hiding?
Not exactly. For some reason Mom shut me in her room when she left for work.
I was wondering why I got a vacation from you. Were you bad?
I don’t think so. I was just my normal self. Maybe she didn’t see me when she shut the door. All I know is that it was rather boring. Good thing I had two windows so I could at least watch the outside world.
Know why Mom wouldn’t let us out last night?
No! I was kind of mad at her ‘cuz I wanted to go out again.
Well, she told me it was just too hot and maybe she’s right. Mom got most of her hair cut off ‘cuz she said it was too hot for the summer. We still have all of our fur and both of us have lots of it. To make matters worse, my fur is black and when that sun hits it, I get mighty warm. That’s why I like to go under the deck where it’s dark and cool.
I was wondering what you were doing under there. It looks kind of scary and besides that, you come out with all sorts of things hanging off your whiskers and stuck in your tail. You know I don’t want anything on my tail. It’s too beautiful!
You and your tail. It’s always in the way ‘cuz it’s so big.
It’s my plume!
Man, yesterday was so peaceful when you were shut in Mom’s room. I suppose you’re going to bug me all day now.
Yep. That’s what little brothers are supposed to do.
