Mom was too busy getting ready this morning to realize I had escaped. She always leaves the bottom door of my condo open in case I want to come out and run around, but usually I opt to stay inside. But today, while she was making hot chocolate, I ran out. I had gotten to the other side of the office (I found a shortcut that involved jumping over a plastic bin and some newspapers) to scope out the other side. There were lots of good, dark hiding places for me to go. But unfortunately, she must have heard the scuffle I made when jumping over the newspapers, because she showed up shortly thereafter! She scurried me away, and kept saying, Not near the wires! Not near the wires! What a weird woman she is!
