Today, an insurance adjuster came to the house. I was standing on the deck when he drove into the driveway, and the cat casually walked over and sat in front of me. The man got out of his car and began walking toward me, and the cat got up and started walking toward him, with his head down and tail out - the same posture he uses when another cat enters our yard.
I tried to shoo him in another direction, but he was intent on going to the man. Knowing the cat's tendency to slash at people, I picked him up and locked him in the shed until the man got back in his car.
A little later, three men from a roofing company came over, and the adjuster came back. The cat had been in a chair and I was sitting in another chair. When the men began walking toward me, I got up and saw the cat making a bee line for the men, ears back and with an intent look on his face. This time when I picked him up, he struggled to get down and tried to fight me when I put him in the shed.
After the men left and I let him out, he wouldn't leave my side and was my shadow every time I was out the rest of the day. I guess I'm going to have to get one of those signs that say "Beware of Cat", only it won't be a joke!
Until next time, may you have blessings and devotion,
