|Sunday, they wouldn't come up|
|This morning, Patty stayed on the top step|
|I gave him his favorite meal; ground roast turkey and kibble!|
|Patty never moved from that top step|
|Sweetie came down...|
|She easily moves from step to step|
|The last image I had of Patty before I left for work|
Something weird happened last night. I don't know what it was, but it drove them both up the Stairway To Heaven to sit huddled under the balcony.
This foggy morning, I walked out back with two bowls full of ground roast turkey and kibble, and couldn't find anyone! I shook the kibble container, hoping to 'call' any cats in, but I got nothing. I walked into the alley, and around all sides of the house. Then, I witnessed Sweetie coming down The Stairs, but Patty stayed up there. I immediately ran inside, and upstairs to open that door, but Patty would not move even though I petted him through to hatch, and he purred. In the end, I came back down and put all bowls at the feeding station, where Sweetie ate most everything. Weird, huh?
It's truly strange NOT to have Patty respond to me, because he ALWAYS does. No matter where I sit, stand, sweep or rake, Patty is somewhere at my feet or touching my body. To have him ignore me, staring off into the backyard was bizarre. I can only hope that things have settled down, so everything is back to normal tonight. And just got off the phone with The Hubby; he says Patty and Sweetie are doing their usual stuff on the deck, and he sees no problems with them at all. Hmmm...
