Saturday Special: On the Lookout with Simon

saturday special simon 01 10012022

Hey everyone, I know you remember this, but I like to look out front from up here on the stairs, it’s a totally different view that anywhere else. Sometimes Seal looks out from here but this is mostly my lookout spot. So what am I on the lookout for today? Well, small parts what was left of Hurricane Ian went through here yesterday so today I’m making sure that the coast is clear.

I’m looking out, way down the street and way over to the lake, and I don’t see much going on. I’ll keep looking though, I might see something important.

What are you laughing at Seal? There she goes, she is giggling at me and she’s not telling me why. All I’m doing is making sure the coast is clear.

Really Seal? She said she is giggling because I can’t see the coast, it’s seven hours away from here! I’m going to keep watching anyways.

I hope you all have a good weekend, I’ll see you soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

It’s always a good idea to keep watch Simon…..I do that too from the windows at the front door. Someone needs to know when introoooders are approaching right?

Doesn’t Seal know you have purrfect vision? Of course we know you could see that far all the way to the ocean. So glad you’re safe up here in Ohio we’re now getting high winds and ugly gray sky but that’s probably all that will come up from the hurricane.

It’s always best to be prepared and to be on guard, Simon. We’re relieved you weren’t impacted by Ian. (We’ve been thinking about Marg too, hoping she’s okay, as we don’t know if she would be impacted.)

What a delightful pose, almost an impossible image like fitting the camel through the eye of a needle . . . . except you’re a cat and those are banisters, MOL. Don’t let your sister tease you. It’s an important job, plus you’ll get to see the treat deliver before her! 😉

Simon I say you are one fantastic neighborhood watcher. And your steps and are gorgeous and shiny
Happy to say Ian has left the state…We have 4.7″ of rain in our guage……however, my friend in Palm Coast Florida wins the prize at 17″. Amazing we kept power the entire time…sometimes on a sunny day power will go out for hours just crazy.

No reason why you can’t keep looking even if the coast is that far away, you can be prepared that way. Simon, you are the most handsome fur feline I know. Are you a long hair tabby or do you have Main Coon in you?

I was laughing because the expressions on Simon’s face are so very funny. He kept me giggling. It’s those big eyes of his that are so compelling. I think there’s some LOL-fodder here for sure.

Doesn’t the English language have some funny expressions? You just keep making sure the coast is clear, no matter how far away the real coast is, okay?

From the photo on the wall, I see that you have or had a Siamese. I’ll bet they’re delightful cats.

I said it before, and I’ll say it again, Simon is adorable.

I’m so glad you didn’t sustain heavy damage from the hurricane.
