Ashton: All of us love to sit in the cat window. We take turns doing it in hope that the head peep will notice how dirty the window is and clean it up. Good help is so hard to find.
I rule the cat window at night. That’s when the neighbor cats wander by. And possums, too. And the man in blue shorts never comes to the door to scare me when it’s dark outside. So you’ll never guess what was on the cat TV the other night.
It was past midnight, and very dark, and suddenly there were really big things right outside. This was as bad as the man in blue shorts on the scary scale. Worse, because there were four of them. I had heard stories but had never seen them… vishus deer!
The head peep tried to take a picture of them with her eye-phone, but she muttered something about it looking like one of those bigfoot videos. Whatever that is. I had tried to show her that the dirty window was a problem. That’s what she gets for ignoring my suggestions.
If you click to biggify, you can kind of see the the rear end of one of the vishus deer near the middle of the terrible-quality photo.
Two of them were in our garden, almost within pouncing distance. Another two were busy in the neighbor’s garden. By daylight that we could see what they wanted. They ate all of the leaves off of our two hibiscus bushes, and half of the neighbor’s, too.
This is the neighbor’s hibiscus. It was green and bushy all the way around until the vishus deer molested it. Now there are leaves only on the side near the house. The deer must not have wanted to stand on the sidewalk to finish the job like they did with ours.
So beware, cats and kittens. The vishus deer could be sneaking up outside your window, too, just when you think you are safe from the man in blue shorts!
