I missed the shot!!!

I was thoroughly enjoying touring my mother-in-law’s garden with her. She was describing different flowers and what changes she wanted to make, which plants we could come and get some of for our gardens. It was relaxing and pleasant and beautiful.

But we were not alone. Cory was hiding here and there among the plants, never far from us as we wandered around. Was she attempting stealth, or was she trying to capture our attention because “cats are the only important thing in the world, more importantly Cory is”.

We came back around almost to where we had started, and up Cory went into the tree over my head. Silly kitty!

I took some fun shots of her posed on the branch above me, hoping that I wouldn’t wear her on my head. Then I went on about enjoying the pretty flowers.

As I turned away it happened…there was first a noise…I turned…I looked…Cory was dangling from the tree by a single paw!

“CATCH HER” Screamed in my head! “QUICK GET A PICTURE” Came from my mom- in- law! It all happened so fast, no time to react!

I fumbled with my phone, but Cory was safely on the ground, walking away as if nothing happened.

I missed the shot.
