Day 160: Halley … Hollywood Material?
That Halley for instance … she could be related to polar bears because that cat loves anything cold. First thing in the morning she wants to go out on the balcony. If I think it’s too cold and refuse to open the door, she looks at me with pleading eyes and emits a meow that would melt a stone heart. If that doesn’t work, she throws a tantrum and scratches the door with all her might. Eventually, I can’t take her scratching anymore and give in.
During the day, she ignores warm cushy places and rather sleeps in the tub or the sink where it’s cool. And give her half a chance and she jumps in the fridge.
People often wonder what cats do while they’re away from home. I know what Halley does … she watched TV, more specifically old black and white movies. In case you have any doubt, l found her in the sink today and she struck one pose after another.
When he comes home she sits by the door to greet him and from there on they're like two peas in a pot. If he goes to the bathroom, no matter where Halley is, she comes charging through the room in a manner of … WAIT FOR ME! GET OUT OF MY WAY!!!
On the rare occasion that she doesn’t see him go to the bathroom, all he has to do is call “Halley, are you coming?” and she comes flying from wherever she’s been.
Halley is a wonderful cat, but then judging by her expression as a kitten, we could have expected that she was going to be a handful.
