I guess I must have left the door open or something because somehow Fuzztastic got out of the house without me realizing it. I was outside for a long time picking berries. I surprised Mama Monkey and she was very pleased. When we finished eating, she said that today was the day that we trim Fuzztastic’s and Bride’s fuzz. It is what we do close to the midsummer festival because it gets very hot around this time of year. Mama Monkey says that it makes them feel better and they have the rest of the summer to grow back what we trimmed.
I looked for Fuzztastic first because he is usually the easy one to brush, Bride tries to claw my eyes out when I brush her, so Mama Monkey ends up doing it. I was unable to find Fuzztastic so Mama Monkey went ahead and brushed and trimmed Bride. As she did this, I looked around the entire house. Fuzztastic had disappeared! I tried not to alarm Mama Monkey, so I crept outside and was relieved to see him sitting out on the front porch. I still don’t know how he was able to sneak out, but I'm glad that I found him.
I would have gotten away with hiding the fact that Fuzztastic had gotten outside if it wasn’t for the fact that he ran straight for the sandbox and pooped in it. Mama Monkey knew he was outside because he won’t poop anywhere but in the box. She explained as she trimmed him that she even knows he goes in the morning. I think Mama Monkey is too preoccupied with Fuzztastic’s toilet habits and I think Fuzztastic is a strange cat.
