Remember Peanut? Me neither, until he showed up at our doorstep this morning. I had heard about the infamous Peanut after Jesse and Adam met Kim (“Ms. Kelly”) and her son Brady while crashing a hotel hot tub last year. Did you know that a peanut isn’t actually a nut at all? In this case, it’s a cat.
About three months ago, long after their last visit to Indialantic, Peanut ran away. After reuniting with Kim and Brady this week, we discussed various possibilities on where he had gone. Did he run away and join a cult? A gang? Meet some other friendly, cool cats and is now living the good life? Did he take off on a moneyless adventure to try to make the world a better place? Was he the noisy critter the neighbours kept hearing in the wall, worried that whatever it was would break through at night to attack them? Okay, we only discussed a couple of these, but I think about cats a lot.
No one knows for sure what really happened, but he’s back and skinnier than ever. I guess whatever happened, we do know he’s not one of those mean cats who kills more birds than he knows what to do with. Unless he didn’t know what to do with them at all. Either way, it worked out for Kim and Brady. A cat has to eat.
Epic life events happen when “we” visit, apparently, and this time it was in cat form. Last time Adam and Jesse visited, Kim’s partner left. This time, a cat arrived. One door closes, a cat jumps through the window. Or however that saying goes.
from Indialantic, Florida, with heat and rain and friends and a happy Peanut
