The felines I’ve assisted are vastly different, but one thing they have in common is their love for faraway friends.
For Tabs, it was a squirrel who lived in the neighborhood. This particular squirrel stopped by a few times a week to allegedly visit the oak trees near our house to gather acorns and whatnot, but really, it was a social visit. He and Tabs would stare at each other from afar, communicating with friendly and interested looks, and it was my understanding that neither felt threatened. They were, for whatever reason, fascinated with each other.
I asked Tabs about it once. What was the story behind their long-distance friendship? He said they were both thinking of investing in something called cryptocurrency, which I hadn’t heard of at the time. Tabs was always at the forefront of technology, as you know. I just never he received his insider information from a squirrel.
I recently discovered that Rosie, too, has a faraway friend, a small terrier mix named Bella who frequently patrols the neighborhood.
The two stare at each other from their respective command posts, silently exchanging information which I’m assuming has something do with science.
I ran into Bella the other day and asked her if she and Rosie were currently working on any research together. She gave me a knowing look and pointed at a nearby stick. Later, when I asked Rosie about it, she grumbled about security clearance and how I did not have it, so the details remain a mystery to me. 🙂
