Qatteri Cat Gets Bored

The Qatteri Cat remembers what it was like to live on the streets. He doesn’t remember the hunger, the thirst or the danger. What he remembers are the smells, and the great adventure.

When he first came to live with us, he often escaped. He could run out the back, up a tree and once over the wall, he was GONE. He always came back . . . unless, of course, he was stuck in someone’s back yard, or up a tree so tall he couldn’t figure out how to get down. We always knew when that happened – we could hear him yowling all the way home.

But now, he can’t get out. There are days when he yearns for the street, for the smells and strangeness of the great outdoors. We try to amuse him, and he humors us.

We hid one of his “babies” under the sack. It’s driving him crazy:

He pushes the sack, trying to get his baby:

Finally, he wins!

  6. I think SparklePlenty hit the nail on the head. I get the uncomfortable feeling that HE thinks he is amusing ME!

    3baid, all he wants is to go outside, but if he got outside here, I think he would find it very scary. I don’t think he would last long on the Kuwaiti streets, and he no longer remembers how to forage through the garbage cans.

    Other than not getting to go outside, he lives a pretty good life.
