I promised you I’d get the camera next time there was an accident in our house didn’t I? Well I am true to my word – this time.
I was sitting at my computer the other evening, and I heard a strange noise. I didn’t take much notice as there are always strange noises coming from the TV. I carried on with what I was doing, until I heard the noise again. It was louder this time. A kind of baaaaeeeaaaaeeeeaaaaaabbsssssss noise. A pitiful whining noise. A bit like the noise our cat Livvie makes when she demands something but doesn’t know what she wants. You can go through every ritual – food? garden? drink? cuddle? upstairs on the bed? She doesn’t want any of these things. She just sits there, looking at you and demanding anyway.
I decided I’d better find out what this whining was, so I followed the sound. It wasn’t coming from the TV. I went to the foot of the stairs and looked up to see Mo resting on the landing. Funny place to take a rest, I thought. “What are you doing there?” I asked. “I fell down the stairs” Mo said. I could see she was looking for sympathy so I said “Hold on! I’ll just get my camera.”
What I thought weird was that she was laying, or should I say sitting, facing the stairs she had fallen down. “How did you do that?” I asked. “I don’t knoooowwww” came the pitiful reply. ‘Click’ ‘click’ “Hold on, let me go up the top and get one looking down” ‘Click’ ‘click’.
Now just look at the colour of that face. Should I feel sorry for someone who had just spent a week sunning herself on a beach in Devon while I looked after the cats? Should I?
No humans were hurt in the incident that led to the photographic shoot 🙂
