“A cat has absolute emotional honesty.”
– Ernest Heminway
Before where I lived there was just one season, sunny or hot day after day. Now, I have seasonal changes. Yeah!
When you sit looking out the window as much as I do, I am thankful that the seasons bring something new. So far I have seen NO leaves in winter. Then I saw the leaves return in the spring along with MORE SQUIRRELS! My excitement and joy grew with the SQUIRRELS. I couldn’t run around after them outside but I could run around inside the house. I also liked looking at the many different colors of green on the leaves: brilliant yellowish-green, dark green, and vivid green.
Then months passed and the air got cooler and the leaves on the trees changed again. On some of the trees, their leaves were red or yellow and the rest of them remained green. Palm trees where I used to live always stayed green. BORING! This season I found out is called fall or autumn. The leaves in the photo are from where I live. As fall has progressed the leaves became bright yellows, deep reds, oranges, and even bright coral colors. More recently, I have been watching the leaves fall to the ground, as the wind blows them off of the trees. It was as if the leaves were alive moving around on the ground. They looked like a bunch of squirrels running around (without tales). I pretended I was outside chasing those leaves.
Now, it is getting colder, and grandma is not opening my living room windows as often. It is becoming more like when I first came here almost a year ago. I heard there is something called snow in the winter. Last winter was too warm for me to see much snow. It barely stayed on the the ground at all. Maybe this year, where I live will get more snow. I can hardly wait to see THAT to fall.
No, I’m not a shut in. I’m an indoor cat named Sofi. You can read more about my life as a rescued cat and about the
shenanigans both me and my rescued cat companions instigated with each other. My mostly true story is called Sofi’s Tale by Barbara E. Wade. Young children, elementary school teachers, and cat and animal lovers would delight in reading my story.
