Freewheelin’

boomer-bored.jpg“He” has always been a risk-taker, but this really takes the cat-nip. Now he has gone and gotten himself a Unicycle! He has told us he used to ride one when he was a kid, but let’s face it, he’s no kid anymore!

Amazingly enough, he still has cat-like balance. Well, maybe more like weeble-like balance.  He has actually done very well. Only one bad fall that I know of, and he tucked and rolled like a stunt-man, that time. I don’t think his boss is really pleased about his latest antics. He is needed at his job and as an IT Systems Specialist, it might be hard to work with both arms in casts!

“She” has mixed emotions about the whole thing. While she is worrried about him getting hurt, she is overall amazed at the things he can do, and actually encouraged him to buy the thing. What was she thinking??

I’m amazed, too. I might have natural cat-like balance, but I’m such a whiner, I would never do anything that might result in bodily injury. I have issues…big deal! You would have issues too, if you were born in a barn with five siblings to a young unwed mother, then adopted to a home where you couldn’t stay because someone was allergic to you, then neutered and returned to your orignal home, and named “Boomerang” because you came back. But, this is a great home. I’ve become best buds with Jazz. I love him and look up to him and want to be like him. He’s a cool cat. We nap together a lot.  Also, I have my Mama, Barny. We curl up together and take long naps until I start to aggravate her and she swats me away, even though I am twice her size! She’s got “mama power” that’s like a superhero power where size and age no longer matter! Even when I’m with her, though, I still get scared and hide. Speaking of which, the exterminator is here.  

If you need me, I’ll be cowering under the bedspread, because if I can’t see you, you can’t see me!
