Someone (ahem) left the shop door open this evening and later, Marley was nowhere to be found. I was in the middle of making tuna salad for tomorrow's lunch (You have to do something with all of those Easter eggs. And to think that we haven't even colored our eggs yet), so I sent Jake outside to scout the yard. He told all of the neighbors about his missing cat. The one neighbor was nice enough to walk around the neighborhood and look for Marley.
Anyway, Jake couldn't find the cat anywhere, so he wanted to walk around the neighborhood as well. I went out with him, but I wanted to check out the yard first. We didn't make it far before I found Marley. He was laying on the grill cover which was on our patio. I wasn't about to pick him up, so I tried to tempt him with some tuna. He wasn't interested. I sent Jake into the house to unlock the back door. As soon as he opened it, Marley got up and walked into the house. So much for that dilemma.
Like I told Brian the other week...we need to move Marley upstairs before someone leaves the door open and he gets loose. I guess I'll have to put that on the agenda.
