I realize it has been a while since there was a Motzie story, such as Motzie caught a snake, and no they have not stopped. Living with Motzie can bring in daily delights or even shockers. Where we live there is a constant changing of residents because of the college.
Please note that Motzie is a very famous F2 (second filial – 2nd generation) Savannah cat of stature. He is large and impressive. Savannah cats are wildcat hybrids.
After 3 visits from Animal Control they now say to anyone calling in about the “leopard” (how they get leopard out of solid spots is beyond me) “Yes we know and have met the ‘pet leopard’ and yes he is legal!”
Maybe it is because Motzie loves his daily walks but with the heat he has refused to go out, can’t imagine why? But talk about a pampered cat now his friends old ones and new come to visit him!
His recent friend was very intimidated by Motzie’s size and she came over to visit and have a soda. Scarlet was sitting on her owner’s lap and Zeus was on my hassock watching. Peanut was hidden (unknown animal) and Motzie was trying to make friends with Scarlet! Finally MJ put Scarlet down and as she wandered around the house her leash began to create problems so I unleashed her.
You see Scarlet is a 3 pound Yorkie and Motzie is now at 24 pounds of weight. Peanut is 18 pounds and Zeus is 14 pounds so this animal is out done no matter how you look at it. As Scarlet approached the hassock Zeus assumed the position of paw up and do I hit or don’t I hit. All I asked of my cats were to be nice. Then Scarlet began to run around the house with Motzie prancing and front feet bouncing after the dog. Then out of the blue she ran under the hassock and Peanut ran to it like what went into my play domain! Zeus looked over and fell off the hassock, Peanut jumped straight up like he was launched into space and Motzie hit Peanut for freaking him out!
MJ and I were cracking up laughing so hard with tears rolling down our face and holding our sides. Now that MJ has realized that Motzie is really harmless and can be protective of something smaller than himself this home has become Scarlet’s daily pit stop for fun, laughter and treats.
