Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Cat on a Roof

Chloe, one of the household perimeter patrol cats, patrols the roof most mornings. Does she think we have roof rats? If so, she hasn't found any yet. But better safe than sorry, though.

Despite how the picture below looks, Chloe does not arm herself with a jousting pole. (What looks like a medieval weapon is actually a ham radio antenna.)

 Sometimes she checks the gutters. A kitty never knows what might be lurking therein.

When she's finished her patrol, she comes down the same way she got up—via the red-top tree. It's only one small leap for a kitty.

. . . and she's on her way. The blur in the leaves is Chloe, but you can see her orange tail ring.

She's down!

Now that her patrol is over, she'll likely take a nap.

Makes me want to sing the Drifters' song "Up On the Roof." You have really interesting cats--but you already knew that!
