This morning, I stood at my sink looking out. I see a cat lying outside. The way it lay, it didn't look good and I thought, ' Oh the dogs, look what they did!' although there was no sign of blood anywhere. I watched it for a while and then went off to make myself a cup of coffee.
Later, when putting the empty cup in the sink, I looked out and the cat was still there in the exact same position. After a bit, I went outside to take a look at it and then get it buried soon. I walked towards the still cat and felt sorry as he/she had been living on my rooftop for quite a while. When I got within touching distance, suddenly up comes the head and two yellow eyes survey me. But as it didn't seem to be making any move to get up, I thought maybe he/she was injured. I figured to take a closer look, but before that, shouted to my maid that the cat was alive, but maybe just. The next minute the cat was up and away in a bound!
I've been smiling the rest of the morning, at how completely I got fooled :-)
