Heaven and Earth

054

Kittens:
“We don’t know where we are. Buddy thinks we may have landed in Kitten Heaven because there are a lot of other kittens here who don’t seem to remember too much of a life.

“We know we were separated from our Mother and run into a small, hot container. Then we took a ride…

“Now we’re somewhere strange. We hear our Mother’s cries, but we can’t find her, and she can’t find us. We miss her warm body and her cuddling and her milk.

“It all happened so quickly. We barely had learned to climb on our board pile home and to play with one another.

“Everything now is different and frightening. We wonder how long it will last. How long will it be before we see Mother again?”

Kitten of the Mountain

Playful kittens attempt the game “King of the Mountain” on a pile of siding boards:

Golden (left) and Cale begin the warfare.

115

Golden goes on offense, then quickly deserts Cale to begin his climb.

088

GOLDEN: “Oh, Cale. What’s holding you back?”

089

CALE: “Golden, c’mon. Give your li’l sis another chance… C’mon… That was too fast.”

085

GOLDEN: “Hmm… Well, it is kinda lonely up here…”

Back down Golden goes, and Cale dances around him.

Then, Cale deftly gives Golden her best move: fake flop and cry;

116

fierce and startling spit; and

095

the over-your-head leap upward;

065

and to the top!

124

CALE: “Haha! Now who is ‘Kitten of the Mountain’?”

130

GOLDEN: “Okay, Cale. That was clever. Draw?”

112

CALE: “Sure, Golden. You’re my bestie!”
