Pumpkin is my very chatty 4 year old Himalayan cat. She demands attention and scratches my furniture when she doesn’t get it asap. She doesn’t like to give hugs but tolerates my hugging her as long as they are only 3 Mississippi’s, 4 Mississippi’s tops. But is Pumpkin a good cat? Yes she is… says Pumpkin herself.
Out of the hundreds, even thousands, of places to hung out in the neighborhood, this cat chose to hung out with this old wooden pony. Perhaps the cat thought the pony was lonely, being all alone day in day out on that fire escape so he was keeping it company. Or, perhaps the cat just liked the view from up there, beside the pony. Wouldn’t you like to know? I did. So, I asked.
At first, the cat was bewildered. He was probably even a little annoyed why this crazy old Chinese woman was talking to him. Of course, I’m not Chinese, but that’s beside the point. But I just stood there and waited. So, finally the cat said, “Me and my pony are waiting for our Uber ride. Is that a problem?”
