A letter to Bobo



Dearest Bobo,

I know that you love to play outside; I know that you don't like to be locked up in the house; I know that the outside world is exciting and filled with temptation; I know all that and I'm sorry but I have no choice but to keep you in the house; it's your safety I'm concerned with!

We live in an unpredictable world with busy traffic, wild dogs, harmful reptiles and poisoned food! I've lost many of your seniors due to these reasons! You're always at my side, watching me cry badly when something happened to our fellow bloggers' pet -- that's the moment I remembered all my beloved in heaven, and then I will give you a big hug whether you like it or not, thank you so much for your company.

You should know by now how much I love you and how anxious I am when thinking of the probability of losing you, and I'm not going to repeat my mistakes with your seniors! Please be a good girl and make me less worried, for goodness sake at least you could help in reducing my grey hair!

Love,
An anxious slave of yours




亲爱的 Bobo,

  我知道妳很喜欢到外面去玩,我知道妳很讨厌整天被关在家里面,我知道妳很响往外面多姿多采的世界,我全都知道,但是还是要请妳体谅,这么做全是为了妳的安全着想啊!外面车多人多野狗多,蛇虫鼠蚁也多,还有喜欢下毒害猫的黑心人,我曾经因此失去好多心爱的猫咪,直到现在仍然怀念和他们在一起的点点滴滴。当妳看到我因为某个博客的宠物的坏消息而哭得淒淒惨惨,仿如感同身受,那就是我想起他们的时候,而且不管妳愿不愿意,在这之后我都会给妳一个大大的拥抱,谢谢妳的陪伴!

  好了,现在妳该知道我有多爱妳,有多担心妳的安危!我也不想重復过往对妳的前辈们所犯下的錯误,所以可否请妳行行好,乖乖不要闹別扭,至少不要再增添我白头发的数量了!

爱妳的大人 书

Oh, sweet Bobo, listen to your friend who loves you so much and don't wander outside. I'm sure you have plenty of fun toys and interesting places to play indoors. We all want you safe and sound! :-)

Awww, Bobo, you are such a lucky kitty to have such a loving slave/mom. It may not seem like it when she won't let you out, but she doesn't want you using up all nine of your lives too soon!

Julia, such a heartfelt, sweet little drawing. I love the sepia tones and the expressions. I totally know where you're coming from.

Bobo is a very lucky cat.
Hugs to you, Julia and Bobo!

I am wondering what Bobo's reply will be. Maybe he sleeps and dreams the memory of being outside knowing he is safe inside with you. I love your style.

Julia thank you for being patient with Bobo. She is lucky to have you for her Mama. Our neighbors cat was just killed and the whole neighborhood is grieving because we loved her so much. Her name was skittles and she had so much spunk and spirit. Peter and Dahlia have never been outside except when I found them in the bushes when they were kittens, but Prancer he is such a whiner if he can not go out! When we adopted him, he was already acomstomed to the outdoors. We proud owners (slaves) of a Cat-on-a-leash!!! We use a harness for him and a leash so he can enjoy the outdoors.

My cat Bliss is totally indoors too, and we live in a tiny place. She's very happy! She sits in various windows and breathes in the frsh air. I think her street life was so hard before we rescued her, she doesn't even try to go out the door even if we hold it open! Bobo is lucky to have a loving, safety-conscious mom!
Lovely drawing Julia...sweet and tender.
(Have a look at my last Animal Wednesday!)
