She found the small beautifully decorated box sitting on her doorstep. There wasn’t any postage; therefore, someone must have hand delivered it.
” How strange!” She thought aloud. ” Charity, no. It’s not a cat toy, that I’m sure!”
Charity has been her sweet Himalayan princess for seven years, now. If it weren’t for her, Kim would have had some much longer and darker nights.
Kim looked around, but there wasn’t any indication of whom left this gift. She bent down, carefully, and retrieved the box.
Once she was comfortable on the porch swing, she slowly pulled the left wing of the ribbon. She was hesitated to proceed, for no one can be too careful with suspicious packages these days.
As Kim fought with herself, Charity peeped out the midsized opening, at the foot of the screen door.
“Mmmeeoowww!” She declared.
Kim didn’t acknowledge the request.
She announced her presence again.
” Mmmeeoowww!” This time a more perturbed.
Kim looked at her cat and responded,
” Oh yes your majesty. It’s time I served your breakfast, isn’t it?”
Charity jumped upon the cushiones seat, and rubbed her head up against Kim’s arm.
” I need another cup of coffee for this adventure anyway. Let’s go.”
With that, the ladies made their way inside, and back to the kitchen.
