Jungle Grass - We Return to Our Story!

Freckles:

The tall jungle grass surrounded me and hid me from any dangers that might lurk in this wondrous place. Although it felt safe in this circle of security, I kept my senses alert for any strange sounds that might precede a predator’s advance. I sniffed the air and rejoiced in the splendiferous odor of uncut grass. I nibbled a bit of a blade that tickled my nose. Delicious! There is something about gathering one’s own food that ignites a spark of satisfaction deep inside. The feeling can’t be duplicated by food laid before one by a well-meaning person.

Not far ahead of me I saw a yellow flower poking it’s head through the grass. I binkied in the air and plucked the flower from it’s stem.

Oh, you're outside. How neat. You can taste the grass and eat a fresh flower.

Freckles really loves being outdoors, doesn't she!

I hope she doesn't start snubbing the food that you provide her with, Deb ;)
