Everyone wants to know…
What’s That Wally Doing?

Today we’re thinking about Scooter, the Original Island Cat.  He went away 4 years ago today.  Mom says he went to the Bridge where he’s waiting for us.

When I first came to live on the island, Scooter was already living here.  He was a lot older and wiser than me and he didn’t like me much (or so he said).  But I liked him and I think deep down he kinda liked me too.  I learned a lot of stuff from Scooter — like how to be a good Island Cat.

I miss him sometimes…and I know mom does too…

Me and Scooter
