my Cats name is really Cat. I am often asked why I did not give him a name.. I think I did... but then again I could have called him alligator, but that might have caused a problem if i stood down at the pond calling out to him,lol

I am a lion in a small jungle.

Each day begins, waking with my people companion

stretching tall and long a hump in my back.

Looking to her sleeping still, purring "its time to wake up."

Slowly coming out of my stretch I go to the top of the bed

And just look at her, breathing softly into her face.  She stirs,

turning my tail to her I lay down close to her face

knowing when she feels me and the swipe of my tail

she will wake up, I meow "Wake up, " " Its time to open up the house."

"Time to go out and smell the mail left last night by other cats."

Ari, stirs more and more as each swipe of Cats tail brushes her face.

Cat leans harder against her and starts to purr, " good morning" louder

Ari's eyes open and she says, "Good morning Cat."   Cat now stands up

and comes to rub his face into hers and bumps his head into her.

"OK, OK." said Ari "I'm up and moving."

Cat jumps down off the bed and heads to the door, looking out he sees

 the sun is shining, and he sees a bird in a tree and what's that?

Hopping there in the grass?  Cat looks back for Ari and again purrs

Under his breath softly, "hurry up, hurry up."

Out the door Cat bounds as soon as Ari pulls the slider back

sniffing the air standing still, then off to the grass

tip toeing nose to the ground to see who came to visit last night.

 Off to the bushes , "ah I sniff mail on it".. taking time to rub and answer.

Cat moves on, what's that in the garden?  Going over, soft sniff.

"Oh no", Cat meows and runs as fast as he can

sitting down on the patio looking back into the garden.

Slowly it is still coming, his heart beats faster as he watches

Cat hopes his Ari will see his concern and come and see what that silly thing in the grass is.

It has made it the end of the patio, and here Ari comes as she at long last.

having seen Cat seems to be in trouble.  She starts laughing loud and long.

Silly Cat was chased from the garden by a turtle.

The turtle comes to the end of the patio with it's nose in the air looks at cat.

 Slowly walks away, as if to say this might be your jungle but it is mySwamp as well. 

The turtles slow walk is watched by cat back into the garden.

Cat sits preening his self like he had the matter in paw the whole time.

 Sunning in the afternoon, eyes half closed Cat sees another cat round the end of the house.

 He knows he must protect the home from this invasion.

Jumping up and giving chase he corners the intruder down by the pond.

Hissing is very best hiss, tail big and fluffed to look larger and a deep jungle growl like any lion would make when he protects his lair.

Ari hears this sound and knows it is Cat, she rushes down to the pond to brake up the fight between the pair, Cat looks up at her and hisses again, as if to say I have

this in control. 

As if on cue the two make a leap in the air, for all the world looking like Superman and Lex Luther.

 They come together wrappings each other in what could only be termed a bear hug.  They snarl and try to bite.

To everyone's surprise when the two super heroes land as they come down in the pond water.

 Needless to say the fight was over. 

Both cats came out of the pond running in different directions.  Cat back to his patio, to

try to dry off his fur.  Feeling proud even if he was a wet puss.

The pride of a job well done.

The sun is low now and a days work is over for Cat, he has defended the lair.

He will sleep well at the foot of the bed tonight and dream of  conquests and

catnip garden plants to roll around and play in.

Dear Cheryl,

I have three cats, or should I say three cats have me, and I can really see your love for your feline companion in your short story. What an enjoyable tale!

Ahh! I live this beautiful scene each morning with my numerous "lions" who for all the world believe that they can protect me and their lair from evil intruders. Well done!

Ah yes, Cats, delightful creatures they are! Loved the story, but cat antics are a story waiting to happen and one could write a dozen books regarding felines hehe.
I had two, now down to one, boo hoo.
A for the Cat's name being Cat, well it's logical. After all Wallace Footrot of footrot flats, the NZ Icon of all scruffy cocky hero'es called the Dog, Dog!
Hope you have great success with your writing Cheryl

PS If you havent read my exerpt from my story about Didge, " the day Didge came to the billabong" could you please have a sneaky at it, would like your thoughts TY xxCh'erie

This is lovely Cheryl, you had me giggling and chuckling all the way through. I have four cats plus the one from next door who likes the company of our cats and our bed! They are all good at 'wake up jobs.' We have two small ponds too and though I've never seen one of them fall in, I'm pretty certain they have, once or twice, trying to catch our goldfish. None of them drink the fresh water we put down for them, much preferring the pond water, even if it turns greenish in colour! Jackie <> <
