Good Boy!

Last night I was working in my kitchen, getting things put away, cleaned up, food pre prepped for today.

We were told to expect high winds in the 50MPH range today. I hate surprises so I was making sure that back up meals were ready to go. Candles bagged just in case the power goes out, neighbors stop by and pick them up.

The winds really picking up all ready this morning.

My GR came into the kitchen, he was just throwing a fit. Whining, wrapping himself around me in circles, pacing all over. I thought he was sick. Or his sister Sophie hid his toys again where he can't reach them. She does that to annoy him. I checked to see if that was the case. Both girls were asleep in their beds.

I knew my son was late, a little too late getting home.
Not 10 minutes later he called. He had broken down in my car again! ( left the lights on)

He just wanted to let me know AAA would be an hour at least to jump the car, that he was ok.

Once he called my GR calmed right down. How did he know his Boy was in trouble?

This doesn't sound all that mysterious to me. The GR knew your son was late. He heard your son's voice on the phone, so now he knew your son was okay.

What's a GR? Sounds like a cat, but still........what's a GR?

Thanks Andy. I should have known that behavior was far too advanced for a cat! Ducking and running.

What do you mean?

I once had a cat who would run to the phone when I was out of town and calling home. She figured out that it was me if it was late at night. She would purr and meow at me over the phone.

Well, I will admit it is unusual behaviour for a cat.
