Like all cats, Tabs had a darkish facet… He might see at the hours of darkness, beloved sneaking round at the hours of darkness, beloved stalking different cats at the hours of darkness, and simply typically beloved the darkish. The one factor he did NOT love in regards to the darkish have been the opposite cats who got here sneaking round…like Harris, his long-time nemesis. Legend has it that Harris nonetheless haunts the circle. Effectively, a minimum of that’s what they are saying. Right here’s a glance again at Halloween time, 2017, when Harris was going by means of his Michael Myers part. 🤣
As quickly because the door opened, Tabs shot off like a rocket! This morning he was over the moon to be going for his stroll proper earlier than daybreak, as a result of, as you already know, cats are crepuscular, and so they get further fired up at nightfall and daybreak.
It began out nice, too. He had a spring in his step. Very first thing he did was dart across the nook towards his favourite bamboo plant, after which doubled again like a kitten and scooted up the steps towards the frequent space grassy knoll, the place he likes to chomp down on grass.
Issues have been going positive till… Holy crap! That very same long-haired tabby interloper confirmed up! We each appeared up and there he was, silently watching us like Kitty Krueger from Caturday the thirteenth.
Tabs freaked-the-eff out! Mewling, tail puffed, hissing, haunches raised, and the opposite cat simply stood there for a very long time, however then he bolted at full velocity and tried to flank Tabs to get round behind him.
Tabs wasn’t having it. He saved his eye on the opposite cat because the interloper zipped below a purple truck.
That’s the place they’d an excellent old style cat standoff.
Lastly, the opposite cat backed down and skulked away.
Fortunate for him, as Tabs would say.
