Surprising the cat through the window did not require a strong intellect or even an intent to surprise. All it took was a pause from the task at hand, the peeling and slicing of a juicy orange mango, and a small, squeaked “meow kiss kiss” and a face suddenly thrust forward through the cobweb framed opening. Cats are not often surprised, and to pull of such a coup with so little effort was delightful. I didn’t even know I liked to surprise cats, but it turns out I do.
