My Nose is Running!


As winter begrudgingly moved out of the way for spring, Boris and his siblings looked forward to being able to go outside and play in the yard. They were too young last spring because they had just been born. It wasn’t until fall they had the pleasure of the lying in the yard with the sun heating their belly or being able to chase anything that moved.

They were so excited to be able to go outside again! But things were quite different. The leaves were all green and small instead of red, yellow or brown. The grass was a pretty green and quite wet instead of turning brown and dry. The flowers were just starting to grow, so they didn’t offer any shade if the cats wanted to lie down in the garden. What was going on?

Mama explained to him that this was a different season; it was a time for things to begin to grow. It was also the time of the year for things the humans called “allergies” with sneezing and running noses. Boris, as a cat, didn’t think he’d have to put up with such silly things until one day…………

his nose was running! Welcome to spring, Boris.
