It sounds weird when I tell this story.
‘Cos cats don’t usually.
But Mikey is special.
He was only a baby at the time. Six months.
I was only six or something. Maybe eight actually.
So I was walking to school one morning. I didn’t see this car coming. I was so dumb not to!
I’d only just turned eight.
My dog Harry had just died:( (RIP BIG GUY X)
So I was walking up the lane.
And this car shot round the corner.
I was in the middle of the road…
Mikey made a big REEEEE OWWWWW noise.
Really, um, strange!
So I turned.
The car was really really coming fast.
But Mikey had made me see it;
And I got out of the way sharpish.
Maybe he hadn’t meant to?
maybe it was just coincidence?
But I like to think it wasn’t.
Mikey’s four now. I still love him. Like mad.
