Invasion at Catmandoo

I had to share this because everytime I think of it, I laugh outloud, I hope you can find the humor also.
We have quite a cat colony of sweet and funny cats that live outside, I am not even going to venture to guess how many, each with his own uniqueness.(This is a story in itself, but another time, I don't want to bore you).
So as the story goes, something, be it beast or wild coyote is coming into the garage and scaring the cats away and eating all the cat food like a stoned monkey with the munchies.So we set up a video camera and as it seems to go like clockwork night after night,the russle of food plates alerted my attention as I peered through the window.My husband was in bed at this time as I yelled," there is something in the garage"!The next thing I know( now here is the funny part)My husband goes racing naked from the bed into the night!I muffled my giggle so as not to upset the big guy.Lukily we live secluded from our jerky neighbors,who hate us because we love cats,(another story).Luckily,the big guy was not spotted or we would have been talking to the cops.
When we watched the tape, you see cats eating, talking about politics, who should be the next cat president when three stray looking dog beasts enter catland and the cats scurry for shelter.The dogs munch hungrily for a while it seems when all you see is the bare legs of a man running for the dogs.I have it on tape but I don't think I will forget it very soon.

So did the cats decide who the president will be?

Good evening, L.
Just read your Catmandoo story...Or was it "Mancandoo"?
Seriously, it was reassuring to find others with a "cat colony" as you put it. I, too, have one, along with a love and respect for creatures, nature, life in general. With this in mind, I'll briefly share a recent experience with you. Met and was talking with a woman recently who asked how many cats I have. This is a question with which I am familiar, as you probably are. The answer--I might respond with something like, "More than 10 and less than 20.""--usually has something to do with the number, people seeing it as strange, eccentric, etc. However, this woman responded with "You really have a big heart." It was refreshing and reassuring that my heart was seen and not merely the number. It is unusual for people to see us or know or understand us for who we are rather than for the meaning they place on us from their own experience.

I also read your other entries, and I hear your heart. I wish you well in your inner search, L.

And may your cats bring you much joy, love, amusement, grace, and comfort, as they "Canwelldoo."
