It seems so long ago, considering all that has happened since, that my Omar Blue decided to let me in on his other life. I still ask myself, how I could not have known, with so much going on around me.
One evening, not long ago, Omar came in from visiting one of his best friends, King Cat Sateer. Yes, King “Cat” Sateer.
I asked how the King Cat was doing and that brought to mind our first meeting with him. I was at their first meeting. As a matter of fact, it took place right here.
In the calmness and comfort of our living room, everything stopped (except his nibbling,) as we started to reminisce. I’ll never forget that night……
A scratching sound came from the direction of the door. I got up to see what had made it. Omar at my side, I opened the door and was surprised to see a large Sphinx Cat glazing up at me.
He said, “I’m King Cat Sateer. I would like to talk to Omar Blue of K-9 Town.”
I understood every word. Omar has many visitors now, but then, it was very unusual.
The hairless Sphinx Cat was standing as proud and regal as could be. Not a trace of fear. He and Omar looked each other in the eyes, then Omar looked at me.
I knew they needed privacy so I pointed upstairs and off they went.
I went running for the camera. A habit I still have today, because if I didn’t give you pictures, you probably wouldn’t believe a word I tell you.
They weren’t gone long but when they came down I could see that something big had just happened.
Omar later told me why King Cat Sateer had come……
