Krishna got out twice today. He quietly stepped out when we did this morning. I found him peeking at me through the back door as soon as we came back a few hours later. I hadn't even noticed him missing because we weren't home. I quickly picked him up and put him back inside.
He got out again a couple hours later.
Belle screamed and cried when she watched Krishna scale a fence and disappear behind it. I eventually found him in our overgrown backyard. I secured Belle in a cloth wrap on my back, walked through weeds and lured Krishna back in with a sardine. I grabbed him by the neck, pulled him up and wrapped my arms around him.
I must have been a sight to see: flower petals in my afro, disheveled by thorn bushes, cat squealing in my arms, toddler eating a scone on my back and a sardine on a plate in one hand. Belle seemed pleased to have her furry friend back home...until she started throwing toys in her attempt to process it.
