My Adventure

Pausing in my grooming to tell you of an adventure I had last night. Lynettea had taken me out for my walk (wearing my diamond studded halter, as usual), when I spied a cat at the end of the street. A quick run along the pavement, Lynettea struggling to keep up, she needs to exercise more, and I was able to stare through the railings at a rather large grey cat. As I turned away the WILDCAT ran out of its yard and sprang onto my back. I wasn't at all flustered and was preparing to give it as good as it gave, when Lynettea gave out the most fearful hissing and shrieking, so the WILDCAT, which must have been terrified, let go and dashed away. Lynettea made me go straight home. We couldn't even stop for a sniff here and there. Then she checked me carefully all over for scratches. I lost several tufts of fluff, but nothing else. Lynettea said she could see now why Russians have such thick fur. I sat on her lap for a good while so she could pat and groom me.

Hi Diamond! Thanks for visiting me. I've never met you before. Yes, Clyde is my brother, but we are not blood brothers. He is a year older than me, but he has only been living here since June and I've been with My Lady since I was a kitten. I hope you have a nice weekend and I hope you come and visit me again!

My goodness Diamond, you were lucky you didn't get more hurt. I think you are being very brave and unflustered about all this. FAZ

Dear Diamond,
that´s really a hair-raising adventure. And you are a lucky one only loosing some tufts of grey hairs. Most of the time it´s enough when Maus or Allegra turn into bigger cats and growl if some foreign cats invade our garden. But sometimes the fur of Maus is not thick enough and we find a piece of claw sticking in her skin. But fortunatly she got no frayed ear like some other cats in our neighbourhood. So please watch your steps and don´t fight against bloody wildcats.

Omigoodness, Diamond! I'll bet that WILDCAT will never dare mess with YOU again!

And you even got a nice grooming session out of it!

Oh dear, how frightening! I'm so glad you didn't get hurt. That wildcat needs to be taught some manners!

Hello Diamond!
Nice to meet you!
My male human is from Sydney.
If you want read some of my poems, you can go to Gretchens blog:
She is my sweetheart on the other side of the ocean. I often write her poems in my comments on her blog.
They are not purrfect, because English is not my usuall cat-tongue (that is German), but perhaps you like them anyway.

How exciting to see some new kitties visiting my blog. I have added all of you except Marcos to my links. I couldn't get to Marcos blog through the heading. I might look for him again. I look forward to visiting all of your blogs.

Oh, another catfight! Yoggie was just in a catfight and had some pretty nasty scratches. I'm glad you didn't get any scratches.
Thanks for stopping by to visit. My next door neigbor is visiting in Australia right now. I don't remember where exactly.

Wow! That sounds very scairty! I think that Wildcat is very mean and BAD. I am glad you escaped safely. You were brave not to be scairt of him.

Maybe it's best to restrict your walks to the back of the house to this psycho cat can't attack you again.
