AMARULA: Well, as you all know, I am quite proud (and take a great deal of pleasure) at being the only outdoor cat in the Human’s feline duo. I have spent many an enjoyable hour making fun of Zulu and his INDOOR life of imprisonment. Well, apparently things are about to change.
I was basking in the glory of MY backyard when suddenly, I sensed a change in the air. Something was not right. It was as though someone was watching me. A terrible sense of doom befell me.
This can’t be happening! My walls have been breached! My territory is being invaded! Apparently, the Human, in some misguided attempt to make Zulu feel better after the loss of his brother, has decided to take Zulu outside on some kind of torture device (the Human calls it a harness) for supervised playtime.
I tried to get Zulu to agree to at least go our separate ways when outdoors…Zulu you go your way, I’ll go mine!
But Zulu was having none of it! No matter where I went he found me!
I tried closing my eyes to see if that would make him disappear:
But alas, no luck! He’s sticking around like a bad hairball!
I believed all was lost, but just as I thought this was yet another event to add to my list of reasons why it’s “Time for My Human to Die” I discovered something very interesting…
There is a long leash attached to Zulu’s harness…
Better yet, if I pull the leash, Zulu must follow where I lead!
Oh yeah! This summer just got a lot more interesting!
