3/30/15 Timberrrrr!

Today was an interesting day. There were human men climbing up the trees in the woods that back up to our house.

We could hear their buzzing saws early. Mom had opened the windows to let in some fresh air, and she let the noise in, too. (Yesterday, it was hailing. Today, it was beautiful. Go figure).

I perched myself on the side of the human bed where I could keep a close eye on the activity. Mom thought they were going to cut the whole tree down. She said, “Maggie, I hope they don’t disturb the Feral Cat Sanctuary!” But, as you can see from this picture, they did not.


They also did not cut down the whole tree. Just trimmed the branches. I think they were from the utility company.

There were many men outside, and we could hear them from our room, talking in mixed English and Spanish, whistling, laughing. Bzz! Bzz! Bzz! They were very busy until about lunchtime. Then they all went away.

About an hour later, they came back and moved on to a different area. I thought for sure they were coming in the yard this time, and I stood at the kitchen window, with my hackles raised and a few soft but serious, “Woofs” to warn them away. Mom patted me and said everything would be fine, and I turned my head and smiled at her, wagging my tail, and put my hair down again.

Finally, I’d had enough of sentry duty and curled up and took a nap. By that time, all the workers had left the woods.

Woof! Love, Maggie
