The other morning we were in a bit of hurry to get off to school. We jumped in the van and pulled out of the garage and started speeding down the driveway. I am pretty good at making up time on the road when I need to.
"Do you hear a cat?" I asked a Munchkin.
I could hear Frodo meowing sort of nearby, but I couldn't see him.
"Frodo's not in the back of the van, is he?" Master Munchkin looked around.
I slowed to a stop, opened the door and stepped half-way out of the van.
"Frodo.... here kitty, kitty...."
There, on TOP of my van, was our wide-eyed orange cat. I have no idea why we didn't see him earlier. I picked him up and craddled him in my arms.
"Poor baby!" His heart was beating pretty quickly. After a good petting, I set him down and pointed him towards home. He had ridden almost a quarter of a mile at a pretty good clip.
That gave us something to laugh about on the rest of our ride to school. :)
