June 26, 2022. Teeny Tiny Treehouse
Earlier in the month, our kurious Kat visited the local Zoo’s Bugatorium where she had a surprisingly good time. But it was exhausting dodging all the creepy crawly residents as she had no desire to squish or squash or slip on her new cast of “friends.” Wow! Time for a Katnap. At that moment an army of harvester ants, marching only inches from Flambé’s paws, heard her yawn of exhaustion. Without breaking formation they hollered up in unison, “follow us you fatigued furrball!”
Perhaps not thinking clearly, Flambé fell in line, and even though she was so drowsy she managed to keep pace with these hungry ants as they led her to who-knows-where.
After many miles, hours, days and weeks of sleepwalking (maybe she was dreaming?) Kat found herself at the base of an ancient tree. While the ants scurried up the trunk to harvest a meal for the colony, she was greeted by a litter of skyward-gazing kittens. Wanting to know what they were looking at Flambé looked up too, and to her surprise discovered a Teeny Tiny Treehouse sitting high in the tree.
With only a few minutes of energy remaining in her legs, Kat managed to climb one of the knotted ropes up to the ladder up to the platform to the turquoise stairway and knocked on the turquoise door. No answer! “Oh no, now what,” cried Flambé. Of course not having thumbs she was not able to turn the doorknob to see if anyone was home. So rather than break in, she found a comfortable corner on the large wooden porch, curled up and instantly went to sleep to the excited calls and songs of a tree full of birds.
What happens next? Who is the Teeny Tiny Treehouse owner and where is he/she? Will the Teeny Tiny Treehouse owner come home and surprise Flambé awake? Will Flambé be invited into the Teeny Tiny Treehouse for a warm bowl of milk, or will she be told to leave? What do you think will happen next? Stay tuned for the next episode of the Misadventures of Flambé.
As always, Flambé invites you to follow her Zentangle-inspired antics (ZIAs) by visiting her page called Tangled Up, to see what trouble she always seems to find, past and present.
