Meowllo everypawdy, can you believe this year is half over? Time just flies by these days. We’ve been havin’ storms all week long so you all know where me has spent most of me’s time. But wait, yesfurday da skies were alit and rumblin’ really, really loud. No crashes or booms, just a loud rollin’ rumble. Sounded a lot like a Harley Davidson motorcycle or a blown muffler. So me didn’t ‘zactly know what to do. Should me hide? Should me go ‘bout da day like it’s nothin’? Finally me decided to consult mommy.
Mommy, is dat there noise thunder, me asked?
Honey, it ain’t nothin’ you need to worry your pretty little head with. I won’t let anything hurt you.
Yes, me knows mommy, but is dat thunder? Me needs to know whether me needs to hide or not.
Well Dezi you know I want you to stay out here in the open with me. Thunder or no thunder. I won’t let anything get you.
Thunder or no thunder huh? So does dat mean it’s thunder?
Yes Dezi it’s thunder. But it’s been rumblin’ now for hours and you’ve slept right through it. So just because you’re awake now doesn’t mean you need to hide. It didn’t get you while you napped, and it’s not gonna get you now.
Hmmmmm You may be right mommy, but everypawdy knows me hides when it storms.
Well sweet Dezi, you know what?
You don’t have to be known as a hider. You could change what everybody knows and be the kitty girl that isn’t afraid of the storms.
What was dat???
(Dezi scurries and slinks her way behind the chair)
Yeah mommy, me will give dat bravery stuffs more thought. In da meantime, ifin ya’ need me, me will be behind da chair. And as long as da skies are grumblin’, don’t call me. Me will let ya’ know when me’s available, okay?. Me knows you’re purroud of me fur hangin’ out as long as me did. Maybe da rumblin’ ain’t so bad, but when da sky starts talkin’… it’s time fur this girly to get outta Dodge, wherever dat is. You can just read me everypawdy’s postys and me will yell me’s respawnses, okay mommy?
But what about the pictures Dezi? You won’t be able to see any of your friends pictures if you’re hidin’ out behind the chair?.
Well mommy, me doesn’t think they changed much over night. Me will see them when da storms stop. Now, we need to get to visitin’ mommy, cuz da lights keep flickerin’. We may lose power today. Me hopes da sun is shinin’ on you all.
We posted da video below awhile back, but me has lots of new furiends dat may not have seen it. Ifin ya’ ever wondered what me sounds like then listen up. Mommy calls it a meweek. A cross between a meow and a squeek. MOL
