a Rainy Tuesday with Cassie

Pray don’t talk to me about the weather, Mr. Worthing. Whenever people talk to me about the weather,
I always feel quite certain that they mean something else. And that makes me quite nervous.”

― Oscar Wilde

I made Cassie’s acquaintance one cold and rainy Tuesday morning at the riding stables.

Although still playful, she is no longer a kitten.  Cassie is 14 years old.

October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces.”

Cassie is a sweet, gentle girl.

After three days men grow weary, of a wench, a guest, and weather rainy.”

Such is the nature of fox-terriers; and, therefore, I do not blame Montmorency for his tendency to row with cats; but he wished he had not given way to it that morning.

Montmorency went for that poor cat at the rate of twenty miles an hour; but the cat did not hurry up — It trotted quietly on until its would-be assassin was within a yard of it, and then it turned round and sat down in the middle of the road, and looked at Montmorency with a gentle, inquiring expression, that said:

“Yes! You want me?”

Montmorency does not lack pluck; but there was something about the look of that cat that might have chilled the heart of the boldest dog. He stopped abruptly, and looked back.

Neither spoke; but the conversation that one could imagine was clearly as follows:-

THE CAT: “Can I do anything for you?”

MONTMORENCY: “No — no, thanks.”

THE CAT: “Don’t you mind speaking, if you really want anything, you know.”

MONTMORENCY (Backing down the high street): “Oh, no — not at all — certainly — don’t you trouble. I — I am afraid I’ve made a mistake. I thought I knew you. Sorry I disturbed you.”

THE CAT: “Not at all — quite a pleasure. Sure you don’t want anything, now?”

MONTMORENCY (Still backing): “Not at all, thanks — not at all — very kind of you. Good morning.”

THE CAT: “Good-morning.”

Then the cat rose, and continued his trot; and Montmorency, fitting what he calls his tail carefully into its groove, came back to us, and took up an unimportant position in the rear.

It was a sombre morning well spent in the shadowy company of this beautiful soul.
