CURIOSITY KILLED…

curious cat

Dana left the house unsure about leaving Tabby, the new kitten she had just acquired.  Tabby seemed tame and low key, not at all capricious.  The catastrophe began innocently enough when Tabby spied a crunchy chip amidst the dirt under the sofa.  She had to shrink lower to investigate since the capacity of space was quit insufficient.  She reached out a paw, gave a little blow, and flipped the sweet morsel into free space.  As she backed out she became entangled with an electric cord.  The fiberglass lamp crashed with a fulgurant explosion.  Startled and subdued but still curious, Tabby crept forward and gave the lamp a nosy lick.  Alas – the electric shock made Tabby quite rigid.

Fret not, Tabby cat lovers, that was only the third of Tabby’s nine lives!  😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
