Backyard Stroll for Two

This evening I opened up the back yard for adventurous cats.  For some reason, Davout was not interested in going out, even though he’s usually the first one out.  He and Rhea had been scampering all over earlier, so he’s feeling ok.  Rhea went to the turn of the path and was getting a close look at the little birds up in the tree chirping at her.

The only thing that distracted her was when Harrison strolled by.

He came out soon after Rhea but went right around into the side yard almost to the gate.

Along with the birds, there was some strange noises over the wall in the pool area.

Birds?  Kids in the Pool?

Suddenly being off on your own doesn’t seem like such a good idea.

She went down and gave a polite nod to Harrison and sat with him listening first to the birds, then to the pool kids, and felt a lot better.

They sat for a while until Harrison gave up and went inside, and a bit later I induced Rhea to follow him and end the session for the day,

I had a call from the vet about Harrison and we talked about his progress.  I’d been wondering if his congestion might affect his dental surgery, and she said aside from the possibility of a post op flareup there’s no worries there.  But we are going to hold off a bit on that and try some food additives and fiber to see if we can further help his issues, and give him that much more time to beef up.  His teeth are quite a mess, but it doesn’t seem to be giving him issues this moment.

There’s even a little Anna story.  Last night she came up to her gate and wanted out, and of course I let her.  She took a small tour down the hall with her tail switching hard, then decided to head back in.  None of the other cats were about to make her regret her little trip.

This is what I am aiming for – it matters only a little if she decides to spend her time in that room, but I want her to know she can come out anytime and extend her world.

    Love the 4th photo of Harrison and Rhea sitting together, and Harrisons beautiful blue eyes really show up.
    Rhea is such a pretty girl.
    Hope you and the fur kids have a nice 4th.

  3. Purrs for Harrison’s upcoming mouth surgery. We’re glad to hear Anna is starting to move out from the bedroom.

    Anna: “I’ll come out, but I won’t ENJOY it.”
