Backyard Visit

Rhea followed a bug or lizard into the jungle below the window behind the palm frond.  I don’t think she caught it.

The kittens were a bit worried about neighbors splashing in the pool.

Sherman decided he likes biting on leaves and pulling the branch back.  He seemed to spit out most of the leaves rather than eating them.

No Irish

I just came to he awful realization that my cats no longer celebrate St Patrick’s Day because they don’t have any green.

Grant, being a British Shorthair, is automatically disqualified.

Quiet Night

Typical day today, with everyone piling into the garage.  I went in after opening the door and Sherman was on the car top, Rhea on a pile of furniture even with him, and Grant between them on the floor.

Aside from that, a quiet night.

Sherman On Top

Sherman wanted to hang out in the garage again, this time I caught him chilling on the top of the car.  Frankly I prefer being able to find him to having him tucked behind piles of stuff.

Grant checked out the garage, but he’s not quite as in love as Sherman.

Action Shot!

Rhea on the Charge

Rhea was in a feisty mood.  She was ambushing and chasing the kittens all over the house.  It was fun to see her crouch and do the bottom wriggle, even once doing the arched back side walk thing cats do.

Crazy Grant was the main opponent, although she did a few chases of Sherman and Davout. He had a blast.

It would have been hard to capture the action in the first place, plus I liked watching it.

Not Busy

Tough life for Grant.

Sherman is interested in the toy angle.

Davout is a bit wild eyed too.

Round Up

Not a lot of anecdotes today since the kitties wanted to play in the garage which doesn’t lead to good views of them since they were under the car or behind furniture.  Rhea did have a moment where I heard her hacking and she had a huge pine needle sticking out of her mouth.  She has a real problem with those.  Perhaps I need to get some wheat grass for her to use instead.

Pictures are from previous days that haven’t made it into the post.

Grant shows how comfortable he is outside on the porch at least by rolling and stretching.

Grant on the alert.

Stepping Out

After taking a walk to get a haircut I let the cat pack out the front door.  Here they come!

Grant takes a step out.  Both the small ones were a little more brave than the first time, although there were a lot of strange sounds from birds and the neighbors.

Even Rhea was a little careful coming out to look around.

Rhea then jumped up onto the “railing” wall of the porch and Sherman soon joined her there.  She was distracted by birds.

Grant followed the path out below the trees, and almost got to the pool area a few times before I herded him back.  I like instilling the instinct for my cats to run home when startled than some other direction.

Garage Visit

The counter surfing of the Generals has started to rub off on Rhea.  I’m not sure why she was poking around up there.

Sherman gave me the goo-goo eyes until I opened up the garage door and let him explore inside again.  He likes to lie against the front door and the door into the garage.  What did I see him doing in the garage?   Lying down against the garage door.

Grant sees what you are doing there.  He has some words to say about it, too.
