The call of the wild

There's this cat in our building.
Some of the neighbor kids told me her name is Sorte Mathilde (which translates into Black Mathilda), but that's almost too cool to be true.
Anyway, this cat has started stalking and chasing Lucifer when we're in the backyard, and she's even smaller than him.

There she is, stalking her prey like a panther
And Lucifer, my sweet boy, has developed this nervous tic; whenever she's around he'll start eating weedy plants and grass and leaves, almost as if he's trying to make her believe that he's a very busy little cow that means her no harm

My mom is taking Lucifer with her to Bisserup today, and i miss him already.

  1. That is so funny, timid boy! I do similar things when I'm nervous. Well, haha, not eat GRASS necessarily, but try to appear to be too distracted to notice anything else. I love kitty's name, too!

    But i know what you mean, i do it too, i usually yawn and go into my own little world!

  3. OMG I laughed so hard at the image of Lucifer trying to be a grazing cow...I forwarded the bit to several friends who all thought it was a riot :) Oh and Jasen, my man, happens to also be a very good writer (yes my writing drives him nuts) BUT he thought it was a superbly well crafted sentence!! LOL I just loved the mental image!!! Made me giggle to myself for the rest of the day. Thanks
