An Exhausted Conrad the Kat

Three Deer & a Cat atop the Mountain

This apartment complex is beautifully situated atop, at the very least, a “hill” that overlooks the beautiful, mostly undeveloped hills, mountains, and valleys of the wine country. The views really are gorgeous.

As we are mostly out “in the woods” up here, I’ve seen a lot of deer casually meandering about. Three spent the day outside the balcony of the apartment one day last week. And, this week, three other deer were nonchalantly strolling about the apartment complex as I drove out. I slowly drove within 5 feet of them as they stood there and watched me go by all but disinterested in my existence. They seem to be very accustomed to people.

You can only imagine the excitement this provides Conrad the Kat, the animaux sauvage! He spends his nights roaming intently back and forth in front of the sliding glass door to the balcony wanting to ferociously attack the beasts who taunt him by lurking just beyond his grasp. By day, perched atop his chair, he looks attentively out the window, until… alas, inevitably, he succumbs to the exhaustion of the hunt.
