Binky to the Rescue: 10/01/12
Binky to the Rescue by Ashley Spires is is the sequel to Binky the Space Cat. This time Binky gets to put all his training to the ultimate test when he accidentally finds himself outside!
For anyone who has ever owned a cat, especially a house cat, Binky will delight. It will also ring true. From Binky's point of view, the house is a space station and the outside is outer space.
Of course outside isn't outer space, but Binky does his best to survive under the rules of his delusion. He tries to breathe air through a garden hose. He fears an alien attack when he sees wasps.
I currently have two house cats. The older one does go outside sometimes but the youngest doesn't. The on time she followed me outside she reacted as if she'd walked into the vacuum of space. She froze. She poofed out. She ran right back inside and stood there staring at me, expecting something bad to happen to me.
