The cat came back

“The cat came back the very next day the cat came back he couldn’t stay away”

Pepper use to have a bad habit of peeing everywhere. As a cat I’m  sure he was only marking his territory but it was disgusting. My sisters and I  would fight over whose turn it was to clean up the mess. At first it was squirts just enough to know he’d  been there and we thought he may be spraying. This was impossible though. Pepper had parted ways with his boys long before my little sister rescued him from our uncle’s. My mother took him to the vet and explained our problem. The vet squeezed Pepper where his manhood once was and made it clear there wasn’t anything left to spray.

My father was determined there was only one thing left to do. He sat Pepper in the passenger side of his truck and drove a mile down yonder to a family farm. Maybe Pepper was always meant to live on a farm. Dad placed Pepper in the grass “Bye bye Pee pee head” he said to Pepper as he meowed in protest. Then he drove away.

We didn’t  notice for a couple days that he was missing because he was an outdoor cat and roamed the neighborhood and terrorized others with his sweet but odd behavior. On the third day he was back. Dad said nothing as to not upset us but a week later tried again. He said farewell to Pepper at the farm then headed off to do errands. By the time Dad came back, Pepper was waiting in the front yard for him. The cat came back he couldn’t be away the cat came back to STAY.
