The God and Goddess of Thunder

Last night, we had a wicked thunderstorm. It happened around one AM. I thought for sure the storm would cause Chyoko to finally have her lambs, but no go. Instead, the Zanimal had a crazy story to tell in the morning. 

Our two cats both love the Zanimal lots. They like sleeping with her. These days, Grenix sleeps with her. Last night, though, Tigery started missing the Zanimal. Tigery attacked Grenix in the middle of the night, over Zanimal in bed, during the thunderstorm.

Their attacks were vicious and noisy, and they coincided with the flashes and bangs of the thunderstorm. Every time they attacked each other in the night, over top of Zanimal’s body, the thunder clapped. Zanimal, in her half awake state, felt as if the cats were controlling the thunder. Every time the cats attacked, the thunder clapped. 


They were clearly the god and goddess of thunder.

Zanimal slept late this morning. She claimed something kept her up. 

There were no new lambs.

  1. Maybe they thought the bed was a refuge from the storm. I would have thrown a blanket over both of them to calm them down.

    1. Yes, that would be a good idea. But they also seem to enjoy fighting. A lot.
