It started with an accident. As usual when I wanted my clearway open I went to ask.
I tried my 'The Her' but as ever there was no movement from her sleeping place even when I tried the nose in the ear trick I'd been taught as a kitten. She sleeps like the dead.
So, I went to my 'The Him'. He was not laying on his back as usual so I could not visit him by jumping on his chest. So, looking for a better way I jumped up onto the headboard of his sleeping place. It was very narrow but I'm a Superior and that presented no problem...much.
I must not have been paying attention and when I came across a wire I tripped. The wire was attached to the thing that makes a tick tick noise on a shelf above his head. Or that's where it was until I tripped. It came flying down and hit the side of his head.
His head started to rise from the sleeping place but unfortunately was soon back flat again as my body hit it.
I heard a squeal of " What the..." and the head tried to rise again but I hadn't had time to react so when the head came upright I was stuck on the top of it. I had no choice but to hang on and that meant using my claws.
I heard another squeal which was followed by a shake of the head and a hand reaching up towards me. I couldn't afford to be dislodged so I used on paw to swipe at the hand and tightened my grip with the other three. He froze. This wa the opportunity I needed to get off. I jumped down onto his sleeping place and started to wash my paws, after all they now had blood on the tips of my claws which could stain my fur.
My 'The Him' flung back his cover , swung his legs out of the sleeping place and ran out. I followed realising he must be going to open my clearway. But no, the silly longlegs went straight to the room they wash in and stuck his head under the water. Another howl and then hopping from leg to leg ensued. Then he saw me and I really didn't like that look at all . I decided to leave the room. He followed. I moved quickly to my sill where the clearway is and he arrived just as quickly after me. He opened it and was just saying
"Why you little,,,,2 when I jumed out and missed the rest which was no doubt a compliment at my Superior fur or something.
Now it is later and I am lying on the long seat next to my 'The Her' allowing her to gently stroke me. My 'The Him' is on his long seat and is not looking at me kindly. He looks a little silly with the row of red dots around his forehead and I'm tempted to go and wash them off for him with my tongue and allow him to stroke me for a minute. But, I'm going to resist the temptation as I don't think he deserves such favour with the looks he keeps giving me. Parhaps I'll wait until he's back in his sleeping place and visit him then.
