Scout disappeared yesterday. I searched for him for several minutes, making a few passes through the living room.
Turns out, he was lying on the arm of the couch staring at me with confusion. “What’s your problem?” his eyes gently asked.
When I stopped to chat with him about his preference for hiding in plain sight, he yawned big as though to say he hadn’t the energy to trifle with my incompetencies.
That’s the thing about having a black pet in the home. They are and will always be the hide and go seek champs of the household. Don’t bother trying. You will not win but you’ll have a great time trying!
Adopt a black pet if you have a chance. Animal shelters are full of them as people, for reasons beyond my comprehension, don’t like them. They’re passed over time and again as people choose litter mates of other colors. Plus, they’re at risk of abuse and the evil acts of superstitious people who will hurt and torture them.
Scout found me in the street and adopted me on the spot. He clearly knew that I lacked a great hide and go seek partner and could benefit from his sweet kindnesses.
That was a lucky day!
LOL that yawn!
I find that odd about black pets. I’ve always been partial to them. I chose my first two dogs specifically for that color. Our new dog is mostly black. Since Sterling is off-white, it’s been odd to find black dog hair on the carpet. Oh, and he does hide well. Took me forever to find him in the cubby under my desk!
I’ll never understand it either. People are strange and misguided in this department.
Scout can hide simply by sitting still so I keep a little bell on his color. Without it I would never find him!
Hahaha silly Scout! Just laying on the arm of the couch wondering what’s got his mama all freaked out.
Lol. This happens more often than I care to admit. He thinks I’ve lost it.
