darkemeralds: (Cat)

On advice, I decided to walk out of the neighborhood this morning to meet my mom for breakfast, instead of riding my bike. A little load-bearing exercise, a change of movement, shaking things up a bit, I thought, might jog me off this weight plateau.

So I got some music together, stuck my walking shoes on and my earphones in, and headed up the street.

I've just crossed 15th, which is kind of a minor neighborhood arterial feeding the Whole Foods market and therefore rather busy on a Sunday noon, when, above Commentary! The Musical, I hear a loud meow.

I turn around and there's Graydie, following me, and about to attempt a crossing of 15th Avenue. I freak the fuck out (having once witnessed the death of a cat of mine that way and never having entirely recovered from the experience). I shout at her. "Go home! Go home!" She draws back from the brink and hides under a tree.

I begin walking again. She repeats the performance. I cross back to her side of 15th and scold her. I start out again. She follows.

Shit. The little furball.

So I walked all the way back home, Graydie trotting in my wake like a damn dog. I got my bike--which Graydie has never attempted to follow--and hastened out of the 'hood to my rendezvous with protein.

I have some serious concerns about ever leaving the house again on foot. And Graydie doesn't even live here. She just visits sometimes.

Ooh, scary. At least Graydie's okay, though. Phew!

Except for the part where dogs look up to humans and think they're the boss, and can be trained to voice commands and will accept a leash.

My dogs would laugh at this description but they are too busy eating half my supper while shedding on the couch. :D

I'll have to make my way out of the neighborhood by a more circuitous route, I think.

You are going to have to develop skills like a Ninja. :)

That cat is a strange one. Pretty, but strange.

Silly kitty!

When we were between houses once and I was staying with Rob's parents along with our two cats, the late lamented Tiger decided to follow us on the afternoon walk with their (extremely daft) dog. They live in a very rural area so it was quite safe. He only did it the once - I think he just wanted to know what we were up to :-)
