A surprise visit

It's been a while. I think I got stuck after a moody valentine's day. Moonjoo caught another humming bird the day before. By the time I made him to drop the little thing out of his mouth, it was too late. He got punished for it; Maybe he'll explain it in his own words on Catastrography. I am going to bury the little birdie today, as soon as the rain water gets soaked up a little more. That had put me in a really bad mood, but then a very strange thing happened today.

I looked outside and there was an old friend standing right out there by the door and staring at me. I call him Pasha. He is a very handsome stray kitty that used to come here all the time. At some point he was literally living here. He was my Michelle's favorite boy. The two of them loved each other and would always sniff each other's noses (only noses, my Michelle wouldn't tolerate anything else).

Pasha had a lookalike. The two of them looked exactly the same, and it was pretty much impossible to tell them apart. The only difference was their attitudes; Pasha was very friendly, but the lookalike was very wild and mean.

Shortly after my Michelle went to the bridge, Pasha disappeared. I thought he had followed Michelle, but then he showed up right at my door steps today. I wasn't sure at first if it was him or his lookalike, but then when I went out he came right to me and let me pat him. I brought out some food for him, and as soon as he started eating, I knew it was him. He's always been a messy eater. He opens his mouth all the way to inhale all the food and throws everything out of the plate.


I don't know where he's been for the past two years, but it sure is nice to see an old friend again.

I just bet it was nice to see him. Maybe he came to lend you some comfort. {{{{ani}}}}

Pasha has disappeared again as mysteriously as he had reappeared after two years. I find that so strange.
