You may recall the time I looked out the window and spotted Mama Cat on the roof next door. It scared the hiss out of Me and I told her to get back down to the ground ASAP. Well, yesterday I looked out the window and saw Mama on the roof again! But this time it was the roof of her garage.
The window I was looking out was closed, so I couldn’t even yell at Mama to get down. All I could do was watch as she stood way up there in the air. I saw her pause for a moment and close her eyes. I hoped that she wasn’t having a bout of vertigo or something from the height.
Next, Mama began to walk along the roof. She was right near the edge and I found Myself holding My breath as I watched her. I was so worried that she would fall down to the cement wall below!
Mama walked until she reached the edge of the roof by the fence. She stood on the rain gutter and crouched as if she was getting ready to jump. I tried to shout, “No Mama! It’s too far! Don’t do it!”, but My voice caught in My throat.
I watched, horrified, as Mama launched herself off the roof.
