Giveaway, Musette

The Boulder Dinner Theatre called yesterday and donated two tix to my big giveaway (it promotes  my May 5 romantic-suspense book about Elves in Boulder, Stolen Magic). Lessee…Prize now includes three nights at the Boulder Outlook Hotel, dinner and drinks at The Kitchen, dinner at Old Chicago, $50 at Dragonfly boutique, original art from Laura Hansen, $25 worth of jewelry at Thyme2Dream, hand-crafted soap from the Olde Soap Crone, and now dinner and a show for two. Dude.

I wrote a testimonial for Musette’s CatBib, and they sent me a freebie. The next day, I heard her crashing through the living room. I ran downstairs, clapping and yelling “NO!” When I got there, a bird was lying on its side in the bay window, panting, and Musette was sitting on the edge of the couch right in front of it, looking chastised. I picked the bird up and took it outside, where it flew away. I had trimmed the old CatBib (it’s made of neoprene) to make it shorter. This new one I left long. I might have to get the wider CatBib, for “aggressive” cats. I wouldn’t call Musette aggressive. More of a stone-cold killer. Anyway, she’s down to three kills over the last year, as opposed to the three a week before the CatBib, so I’m sold.

This morning, I woke because I heard an irregular squeaking sound. At first I thought it was Joe making a little noise when he breathed, but as I woke up more I realized what it was. I reached to the space between us and sure enough, there was Musette, curled into a little ball between our shoulders. This was a surprise, because we shut her out of the bedroom for the sake of my allergies and Joe’s sleep issues. I remembered Joe shutting the door when he came to bed, but it must not have latched. I assume she pushed it open. If she’s managed to open doors (lever-style knobs), then it’s all over.

I petted her, but that just made the squeaking more frequent. So I got up and went downstairs, where I shook out some treats. She came running, and I went back to bed. I have no idea what time it was.

    VERY stylish.

    Isn’t she just the little fashionista in her little Alice Blue Bib?
    Amazing that she can climb a tree in that getup. How can she see where to place her little pitty paws?

    Aw, she looks so at one with nature up the tree 🙂 Though in the third photo, she totally looks like she’s considering how far she’d have to leap to make it to the house…

    “If she’s managed to open doors (lever-style knobs), then it’s all over.”

    No – when she manages to hack into your bank account, then it’s all over 😉 (She’ll do it, too; just look at her…)

    She looks so totally regal in that last shot. How very kind of her to allow you and Joe to share her home and sleep in her bed. 😉

    It’s all true. All of it.
