Page Two, Monitor, Monroe, Wn., July 27, 197_2 i The Beat Goes On... ~. By DICK BALDWIN j News Editor You really wonder if George Orwell's "Anim~ Farm" might someday come true. The further you move away from the city, naturally the more animals you see. We're sure you've all seen how intrigued a cat or kitten is with a ball of yarn. They seem like they lay in the sun and play with it all afternoon. We have a cat that can probably do one better. And not really being a catlover, we are amazed. Our cat, we call him "Beaugart", retrieves. Yes, you read right, just like Rover, he re- trieves. The trick is, crumpling up a small piece of paper that makes a distracting noise as you roll it up into a little ball. The noise attracts the cats attention and when it wanders over to you to inspect it, you throw it across the room. All cats, being curious of course, skip along in chase to get a closer look. Our cat, upon pawing it for a couple of seconds, picks it up and brings it back to you so it can get a better look at what makes the noise. Of course, after doing this a number of times, and the cat figures out that he can't repeat the noise by pawing aRer it, he gives up. But it's great fun while it lasts. You must admit though -- a pretty smart cat. Then there is the young puppy around our house answering to "Take". Although he's a hand-me-down stray and ap- pears to be a mixture of flavors, he's quite amusing to observe. First, there is the guard dog trick. Most outdoor dogs seem to have an instinct for protecting the master's home. Take is no exception. We have a long driveway and since we're away all day the dog has no one to play with. When we pull into the driveway we can ob- serve the dog stretched out lazily on his grassy chaise longue. As soon as our tires hit the rocky driveway he springs into action and goes barking off to the side of the house like he is chasing away all uninvited guests. When we finally come to a stop he's right there, panting like he has had a hard day with his tongue hanging out, ready to greet us. We do think there is a bit of pointer in our dog because when we go out to mow the lawn, he follows along to chase all of the moths our noisy mower scares into flight. :~Have you ever seen a dog thai'buries milk b~iies? Ours does. He's really pretty intelligent. The cat and dog are fun, but that's not nec- essarily what George Orwell wrote about in his classic. We also haven "pet" wild rabbit, an owl, cattle across the street, squirrels and many other creatures wandering around. Those too are fine. Our problem though is a family of Barn Swallows. Yes, you lmow, little birds. We can remember sitting on the front porch the past number of weeks watching them build their nest under our eves, seeing the mother warm her eggs and the final end result. It was really beautiful to watch mother nature's reproductive system at work. The young brood has been cherping now about two weeks. So, being a nice evening the other night, we did our usual relaxation ritual of sitting on the front porch. Worry Is thcJ~ a hole in, your home insurance big enough to drive a car through ?
