Letter : E

I was laying on the beach, the sun was shining, it was warm and I felt so good ! I heard the sound of the waves. Suddenly the ground started to shake and I swang back and forth on  my beachbed ! Something heavy dropped on my belly. Rubble ?  Fear came over me I tried to open my eyes but I couldn't ! I hardly could breath, I panicked and sat up.

It was dark around me, and I shivered. Suddenly I realized that I wasn't laying on a beach, but in my bed in my room ! I switched on the light and saw cat Arthur sitting on my belly, scratching himself vigorously ! He had jumped on my belly so that I thought a rock had hit me and his scratching made my bed or rather mattress shaking as if it was an earthquake ! That at least was what I imagined because I never had experienced one.

Very relieved I fell back on my pillows and pushed my nearly 6 kg (13 lbs) heavy cat from my belly. The earthquake stopped immediately and a very offended cat disappeared through the door !

Arthur the earthquake !

Phew, although Arthur has a large pink belly like Ginger, he is two kilos heavier . That was some earthquake!

Let's hope that is the only earthquake you ever experience.

He needs to be told not to scare you like that.

Given where you have been, it could have been a falling coconut.

That's a heavy cay. Arthur is always up to mischief. I haven't been commenting as I was studying :( But now I'm back.

You had me fooled. I thought you had really been in an earthquake. My cats like to stand on me until I get up and feed them. Groan.

What an enjoyable earthquake to endure!

Thanks for the laugh.
