Max 's Story: Episode 2

You asked for it, so here is more of my mystery novel starring (who else) ... ME! As you remember from our last episode, I had just stuck my head out the cat door from the apartment I share with my food human (Her Highness) when I caught movement and the glint of something shiny...


If Max lived in a regular house where the door was on the first floor, his inclination would have been to scoot straight ahead at lightening speed. No robber or murderer would even be able to identify him as a cat because he'd run into the bushes before they realized what was happening.

But, alas, Max and HH lived on the second floor above Writer's Creative Studio, HH's office and business. Max's door to the enclosed backyard went out onto a landing on the second floor - a set of stairs to his right his only way to the ground below.

During ordinary circumstance Max would merely walk through his cat door, turn and happily skip down the stairs. However, that night his usual route was not an option.

In a split second, Max had to decide what to do in order to evade the
nefarious interloper. Instinct took over; and for better or worse, he ran
straight ahead in a flash. Unfortunately, he discovered the error of his
thinking too late.

Whooooooooooosh! Max flew off the landing and found himself airborne, praying that the saying, "Cats land on their feet" held true ...

Oh noooooo. I do hope Max is okay. Hope we don't have to wait too long to find out.
