"I have a very important job, watching those kittens, I will not let my mom down!"
"Hummm, I will not let those kittens out of my sight, ...I don't see them but if I stare at the spot they used to be ...I am sure they will reappear and mom will never know they got out of my sight!" The kittens remind me of the Siamese Twin cats from Lady and the Tramp-they like to tease the poor dog who is just trying to keep up with her guard duties!
Here Pixie has left...and Ashe is getting ready to make a break. Cricket says "Mama I am watching and I will let you know if either of those cats try to make a break for it-don't worry I am watching!" She really never turned and looked at the cats, LOL, she is such a funny girl, but you can sure tell the cats are not afraid of her anymore.
HOW DID YOU GET THERE ASHE? And WHERE is that durn Pixie?
I think that Cricket is in reality a little afraid to actually stare directly at the kitties, she thinks she will lose them if she looks at them with her powerful stare, so she does a lot of sideways stares or looking right by the side of them,-that is the only thing I can figure out she is doing when she looks like she is so intently staring at the cats and I can see they just are not there.
