Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy and Lucy at Play (A Little)

Twiggy and Lucy

“Hey, Lucy. YOU AWAKE?”

“Um, I am now.”

“How about a game of Puma and Water Buffalo?”

“You get to be the Puma, right?”

“Well, let’s just ask ourselves. Who most resembles the Puma?”

“Sure, and who most resembles the Water Buffalo?”

“I will ask everyone out there. Who indeed.”

“Who are you talking to for heaven’s sake?”

“Just a couple of deer. Certainly, no one who can answer the question.”

“For a minute there….Ah, never mind.”

“So how about it? A quick game? After all, it is fifty degrees.”

“Okay,Β but don’t start whining when the Water Buffalo gores you silly.”

“The Puma begins the stealthy attack.”

“The Water Buffalo prepares to defend the herd.”

“The Puma stikes with razor-like claws.”

“Which the Water Buffalo deflects.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“The Puma decides to let the Water Buffalo live.”

“The Water Buffalo decides to let the Puma live.”

“That was fun.”

“Yes, it was. Makes a nap so much more beautiful.

  7. Ah ha … Twiggy wants to play so she can nap …. She obviously doesn’t have the Lucy wisdom of napping at will.

  16. That was a quick game. I’d guess Lucy is humoring Twiggy. My daughter’s cat used to eat breakfast then stalk me as I sat on the couch. She’d climb to the back of the couch, walk behind me, and bat me on the head Funny cat. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

  19. Fun dialog, John, and great photos. I love Lucy’s expressions. No offense intended, but neither one of them resembles a puma. It does look like they both were enjoying the game.

    1. Twiggy thinks she is a beast of prey. She has Lucy labelled as slow moving bovine type. She will learn someday.

  31. What fun that pair is. Watching them at play always brings a smile — even tonight, after about five hours of trying to set up my new Windows 10 OS. I’d much rather have the girls than the Candy Crush that Microsoft thought I’d want to have on my desktop!

    1. I have found that whatever Microsoft thinks I need I just take. BTW when you hit the “I agree” on the terms of service check the next to the last line. It says, “When called up I will serve as Bill Gates’ cabana person.”
