A semi-black cat for Hallowe'en

I was startled to see Lightning go by this morning. The black spot on his side was spreading. Deanne said, yeah, he's gotten into the fireplace again.

We lit the gas log in the fireplace last night for the first time. He loves to explore, and the back of the fireplace is filthy. Which accounts for his spreading spot.

Right now, he's a happy cat. Boys covered in dirt usually are. But judgment will ensue, and he shall be scrubbed clean this day.

The best things in life are dirty The best things in life are dirty
but bath time's a-comin'.
