Don't let those "innocent" eyes fool you. There is rascal in him yet. He will sit soaking in the sun, daydreaming and gazing ever so sweetly at the owners. I personally think the time spent in the sun is just to recharge his battery. I lay in the sun for warmth and comfort, but he has ulterior motives; pouncing, chasing and stalking.He snuggles up next to 'my girl' while I am outside keeping the yard free from pesky squirrels. I swore an oath to protect my family from all predators, foreign and domestic, and I will not fail them. But, he just sleeps and eats and eats and sleeps in the comfort of the home that I help protect.
I, the faithful dog, who sits at attention when called. Who obeys commands and dutifully watches over my family.
It's one thing to have to put up with squirrels who mock me and try to invade my property, but it is quite another to be 'attacked' from within. This infant of a cat who does not understand the meaning of loyalty and duty. He runs all over the house chasing the Queen Jazz and I. One day he will have to grow up and learn to take on some responsibility around the house.
But in the mean time... I guess I can't be too hard on the little guy. He does have some endearing qualities about him. He reminds me of the joys of wrestling and playing chase. How much fun it can be to just let loose and enjoy life. In the end, the little fella is kinda growing on me. (In my defense, I was not aware that Big Mike had laid down next to me and that the owners would take this opportunity to snap a picture.)
