Yesterday I was at Bert's place while my momma was at work. There is a saying: "It's all fun and games until somepup gets cat slapped." And that's what happened. Remember a week or so ago I introduced you to little Ruby, the 10 week old Beagle pup? She is just the cutest thing. And remember I told you I have taken her under my paw to show her a few things? Well some lessons are hard ones to learn.
There I was taking a little nap, when I felt a presence, I shuttered a bit. I have felt that feeling once before, and believe me once is enough. Then I saw little Ruby nose to nose with The Devil Cat, Allred. "NO RUBY NO!!!!!"
But I was to late. Ruby got cat slapped by The Devil cat. I was so scared I could hardly move. But I promised to help little Ruby through life, and that if that means I must protect her from Allred, well I guess that's what I must do.
"Come here little Ruby, I'll keep you safe. And you Allred, you back off!"
"Buddy he is still there. I am so scared."
"You just stay right her Ruby, I'll cover you and make your fears disappear. See Allred is walking away."
"Buddy what was that?"
"That Ruby was Allred, The Devil Cat. The one to stay clear of."
"But he seemed so so, well so fluffy and nice."
"We all think that at first, but then...."
"Even you Buddy?"
"Oh yes little one, even me."
"And Bert, Bert too?"
"Yep even Bert. Bert has had to endure Allred longer than any of us. Oh and the stories he can tell you. But you're to young to hear those stories just yet Ruby."
"Where is Bert anyway?"
"My guess he's in that hole he dug by the big tree. Just sitting there with his eyes wide open."
"Ruby you just curl up here with me, I won't let anything happen to you."
"I promise Ruby. Now you just sleep little one and dream sweet dreams.
