Momma lets us out into the CatPod and in the early afternoon, if the Orb is shining, we can venture out into the communal area to enjoy the flowers and the water fountain and sit on the decking and sun ourselves. Well, this is what I do. I know for a fact that over that 6ft fence there is a very painful World of black thorn and stingers. I once fell in when I was their age and boy did I suffer. I was stabbed and scratched and bumpy for days. I howled and howled for the Parentals to find me. It hurt so bad! It makes me wince even now to think of where that black thorn went. ::wincing::
But like CatWomen, they have to explore. Momma sits with the hose on jet stream and zaps any unsuspecting CatWoman that reaches more than half way. Faith is the fastest. She can launch a good three foot, then she is off, scaling the wire of the House of Fun and off along the roof. She really is a Ninja. Lillibet is coerced into doing bad things. If Faith gets told off, she goes over to Lillibet, tells her what to do. Momma gets up to take Lillibet down, for some reason, she never gets told off? Anyway, whilst Momma and Lillibet are busy, Faith makes a running leap at the three foot holding fence and makes her escape into the big wide world. She is speedy for a matron, but can't help going all silly and on her tippy toes when Momma says silly things to her about escaping. That's her downfall, it slows her down all that tail shuddering, tiptoeing and squeaking.
Gracie thinks the gate and the wooden fence is a better bet. It's for running up whilst chasing bees. ::Shakes head:: Bees. Oh my. I hope Momma has some Piriton at the ready for that day of Bee reckoning! But onwards she goes and upwards she climbs. She gets the water pistol the most. She doesn't listen like the rest of the CatWomen. She is practically deaf you see or should I rephrase that? She has selective hearing! She doesn't come to her name, arches her back and tiptoes along or swings her ears in the right direction but she never comes back. She is lovingly known as 'PEST'. I think it suits her. Dis-Graceful, Pest or Spot. Take your pick. In my mind it all adds to the rich tapestry that is the new Purple & White Bug Hunter of Maystar Gardens! Maybe, just maybe she thinks she is called 'come on'. Everyone thinks they are called 'come on'. That's the phrase for NOMS!
