The Dad says there are these wildfires out and about and that we need to take care for air quality and such. I think it sounds like a bunch of alarmist nonsense. At the worst, it sounds like an opportunity to stare down some danger.

But then he tells me he’s going to close the window for a few days until things are less dangerous. You tell me how I am to respond to that!

For a moment, I think “I can take him,” and prepare to leap with bare claws the moment he starts to close the window…

…but he is a very big human…

Yes, he is very large, and he’s been a pretty good guy to date. So in a monumental harnessing of the danger gene, I resist the urge to leap.

Instead, I lobbied for at least some last whiffies of outside before the opportunity was gone.

  2. OH no, don’t do it! That would be a HUGE time out, Danger Cat.

  3. Stay safe indoors and keep the windows closed Tessa please don’t breathe in the wildfires’ smoke in case it makes you choke.

  4. Tessa, of course you could take him down! Such a sweet kitty to withhold that instinct, bc you know he’s protecting you from nasty stuff in the airs. Hoping all the burning stuff goes away soon!

    We sure hope those wildfires are gone soon!

  10. The closing of windows is always a mournful time here, too. But we think you could wrap him around your little paw and get him to reopen them.

  11. We’re sorry about those lost whiffies, Tessa, but your dad is right. Please stay inside away from those wildfires and that smoke, and be safe, okay?


  12. We’re sorry the windows have to stay closed, but we want you to be safe. We hope things settle down soon.

  13. It’s frightening, how many wildfires there are near you right now! The air quality must be terrible. There haven’t been any really huge fires near our area since I’ve been here, but my human remembers some that have really created a lot of smoke and some ash for our neighborhood.

  14. Hope dose fires stay away from y’all!

  15. Yes, those fires. The fire whiffies are harmful so you best listen to your daddy.
