An Afternoon with Domino

My brother-in-law called to say he was going to burn his brush pile and invited us over for the big event.  I left the decision up to my son since he had homework to do…. Let’s Go, he said.  We can see Domino!  My brother-in-law knows how to build and feed a fire so it would be fun AND we would get to spend time with my Darling Domino.   When we arrived, Chris was ready to go and Domino was taking a dirt bath.  The men (my brother-in-law, his son and my son) were ready with the hose and ignited some paper.  It started right away – Domino ran and took refuge behind a board that shelters the cut fire wood and only his head could be seen.  He is just so darn cute.  The fire was exceptional and didn’t produce too much smoke (no black smoke) and what smoke there was blew away from us so we were very pleased.  As it burned down, they added more debris and monitored the perimeter with water.  It was very exciting.  Domino came and went but stopped by for kisses every pass through.  After almost 3 hours, we decided to head home so I called him to say good-bye.  Apparently he wasn’t very close (or was ignoring me) so my nephew got the bell he has trained Domino with and within just a couple of minutes Domino could be seen racing back towards the house from quite a distance.  He of course didn’t want to miss the opportunity for some kibble…..I had a bowl for him but insisted on holding him and kissing him before he got it – then Wille wanted to do the same.  He was extremely tolerant of this and his purrs could be heard from 8 feet away.  I so love this cat and am amazed at how he still comes for dinner – now it is just with a bell rather than a call from across the street.  He has to be the happiest cat on the planet – his dreams have finally come true.


About Gael

The purpose of this blog is twofold. I am writing a book about Jack’s adventure when he disappeared. I need to finish the book but find so many things to write about him that I decided to blog them. I realized I have a tremendous number of stories about various cats over the years because my life is full of a tremendous amount of Cat Kismet. I have truly been blessed in this way. Jack’s adventure story tops them all ~ it is the ghee of the butter. This story will be told in our book “Have You Seen Me”…. More details to follow. About Me: Gael is a mom of an extraordinary college student. It's a good thing she is an animal mom too since he doesn't require much from me any more. Gael loves to write and loves to sing. Gael likes her days off from work so she can write and sing. She also loves to read....most writers probably do. Gael hopes you enjoy her stories about Cat Kismet and invites you to share yours. Thanks for stopping by.
