I have officially survived finished my first year as a Cub Scout leader. Sure, there are a few activities over the summer, but I don’t have any meetings to plan until August.
Yes, it’s time for me to relax…
This kitty was napping outside the ‘Ulupalakua winery on Maui. (Don’t ask me how to say the name; it took me long enough just to type it :))
The cat napped right by the sidewalk and there were people milling around nearby. I grew concerned because the cat didn’t move. It’s not unusual for a cat not to bother opening its eyes or raising its head, but at least their ears usually twitch as some kind of acknowledgement of our invasion of their space presence.
Another couple had stopped to stare at the cat and assured me the cat was indeed alive. I watched the cat for several seconds and saw its side rise and fall. Once I confirmed the cat was breathing, I went ahead and took the picture. (It seemed creepy to take a picture of a dead cat.) Even with the hum of the focus and the click of the pictures, the cat didn’t open its eyes.
I wondered if the cat was so relaxed because he lived in paradise. I thought maybe he stayed up too late on rodent duty. Then I remembered his residence – a winery. That’s it: he’s the pineapple wine quality assurance tester and he worked overtime! No?
Why do you think the cat was so relaxed? Get creative!
