Smokey was right! They had wasted way too much time bickering when they should’ve been thinking about Ace. When she said that it was like a light bulb went off over all of their heads! All of them felt instant shame. Ace, even though he was extremely crotchety, at times, was a good cat. He was a loyal cat. He’d fight to the death for you if necessary. All of them were extremely sad at the thought that he wouldn’t be around anymore.
Ace was buried way up in the one corner of the yard with all of the other past famous kitties (LBell, Goldie, Twiggy, etc). All of the kitties huddled and watched their Mom wrap him up and put him in the hole gently. Mom didn’t know they were watching which was okay with them. (Remember a group of cats together aren’t visible to humans.) As a matter of fact Mom didn’t even realize that Ace had been murdered! She thought that had just died of some kind of illness. Why wasn’t their Mom aware? Well, cats have a tendency to see deeper than humans. In other words, humans see what they want- not what’s actually there.
Meow, meow- I know. It’s Friday. It’s not really the time for philosophy. The time had come to figure out if what Blackie was saying was true! After all, how do a bunch of kitties go around finding something called, ‘Da Creature?’
Anybody have a meowy idea?
