Is Herbie Trouble?
I must apologize to Alice. Yesterday when I posted about all the new pet arrivals of the Pet People, I forgot to mention Alice's new cat, Herbie, who she adopted from Cats Are Us. If you remember, Alice lost Trouble a few months back. Remember the great picture of Trouble trying to take care of the paper jam in the printer? Well, Alice sent me this photo of Herbie, top.
She says: "I see Trouble in Herbie a lot. Her spirit is definitely in there. Herbie comes running when the printer starts printing, just like Trouble used to do. Here is a pic of Herbie trying to find the gremlin that lives in my printer."
I love the picture, even though we don't see the face. It's like he's looking at a doorway, trying to make sure he can finish his task before Mommy comes into the room. The typical hand caught in the cookie jar. In Trouble's picture,below, he was caught in the act, and had that caught look in his face!
This got me to thinking. Dangerous, I know. Do you all have any supernatural stories about your pets or those of others? Ever see the show miracle pets? I'm a believer, as I had my own other-worldy experience with Yogi and the cookie I told you about a while back. Spirits abound in the universe I truly believe, a universe we know so little about, really.
Alice, tell us more about Herbie since you've adopted him. Anyone else plan to add to their pet family any time soon. I would love to get a little dog, but I know The Boss would have a fit. Sometimes I do let him get his way. One day though, when the three I have join Tramp, Yogi and Penny! I just hope Scooter never comes back in another pet body!
