Yesterday when I woke up from my afternoon nap I was in the mood to go outside, I went to the door so Mommie could let me out and there it was – a BIG fight brewing between Loud Mouth and Patches.
Both of them had their tails up and were growling big time. I actually heard them growl with the front door closed and halfway down the hall. They were MAD at each other. I decided I needed another quick nap and didn't go out when Mommie opened
the door. Mommie tried to stop them from fighting, but it was a losing battle.
Loud Mouth struck the first blow and then Patches pounced on Loud Mouth. They wrestled for a couple minutes and then decided it was a draw and both went their
separate (and opposite) ways.
Mommie sat me down and explained that fighting usually never solved any problems. She said she would love me just as much if I backed out of a fight. Unfortunately, I think this was her way of saying I would
probably lose any fight with Patches or Loud Mouth. Mommie said she would label me a “pacifist”, not a “coward”.
I love Mommie.
KNOCK - KNOCK
Hey! Guess What!! I learned
how to knock on the front door and Mommie will let me in the house. I don't have to wait out in the cold any more. Whenever she hears me knocking she comes running.
I couldn't believe it when it worked the first time. I stood by the front
door and grabbed the grate on the screen door. It must be a little loose or something because I was able to pull on it and the door bounced back to the frame and went “knock, knock”.
Then I heard Mommie coming up to the front
door. When she looked out and didn't see anyone she went back to the kitchen. I pulled again and the door went knock, knock. Mommie came running this time. After she looked out the door and didn't see anyone she looked down and saw me. She was really surprised
to think I could knock on the door.
Now I hear her on the phone bragging about how I can knock on the door when I want in. I heard Mommie tell Uncle Tom NOT to fix the front door.
I love Mommie!!
