Both boyos - our two orange cats Luigi and Edward - have gone walkabout this wet morning. Edward usually goes out, but he was hesitating when confronted with the wet. I left the door open and went to the deck, where i slid the glass door open, the familiar sound reverberating in the morning silence. The boyos stayed considering the wet until they heard Greycie Loo's bell jingle as she trotted down the hall. Dash away, went Luigi. Edward gave one look back and followed.
I made tea.
Once done, i stood on the landing for a few minutes, listening. My eyes picked out a planet bright above me, and a satellite crossing -- i thought, but the approach would be wrong for a pre dawn illuminated satellite as our landing faces west. It winked out overhead, but that must have been the clouds thickening. Hmm.
The yard was filled with the sound of dripping water and steam rose from my teacup. We'll give them some time out and about. I hope Luigi has the sense to come home promptly, so Christine's day does not start with cat worries.
