Cat Lady – A.J. Nicol

Ginger cats are always possessive.

Maurice peers at me over the blanket. I pat the bed beside me and assure, “Empty. See?”

Maurice disappears. Sulking. He’ll be off to the lounge to scratch some furniture.

Tonight’s fling whispers, “Is it safe yet?”

I told Jeffrey my cats are nervous and will pee everywhere if their routine is disturbed. Then I asked him to hide in the wardrobe. He’s been in there for twenty minutes. He pokes his head out and smiles at me, thinking it’s all a game.

I like Jeffrey. I might turn this one into a Maine Coon.
