We knew there was a depression heading our way, and early yesterday morning we had a heavy rain. But then the rain stopped, and we were left with overcast skies and a nice cool breeze. Not bad, really.
By midday I was thinking we had escaped the tropical depression. I took a nap, and when Miguel came home, he took one too. Around 5 pm it poured again, and I got up to watch the rain.
The animals have a way of being where we are. Loco was under the bed and he stayed there in the bedroom with Miguel.
Luna was outside somewhere, she seems to have a secret shelter somewhere. The other three cats were wandering around but as soon as I sat on the couch to use the laptop, they decided they wanted to be on the couch too.
Maya made herself comfortable in Miguel's usual spot, and Smokey joined her. Minina snuggled in beside me.
It didn't take long for Smokey to start poking at Maya, and then the two of them hit and bit and wrestled on the couch.
As Minina and I watched the two cats go at it, I thought of my brother and sister. As kids, they were always annoying each other, and on car trips I had to sit in the middle to stop them from fighting.
I wondered how long they would keep it up.
I guess the answer was...until Maya gave in and Smokey got the space all to herself.
Minina grew bored watching her 'sisters' annoy each other, and spotted a baby gecko on the ceiling. She amused herself with staring at the gecko, willing it to come lower so she could catch it.
Around 7 pm there was a break in the rain and I managed to get Loco out for his potty break. This morning however, there is no break in the rain and Loco was forced to go out in the downpour. It didn't go over so well...
