Our favorite grandkitty, Miss Darcy, had her first outdoor adventure while she stayed with us this past week!
Our cats have mainly been inside cats, but we have always let them outside under supervision so they can explore their natural feline instincts. Eventually they get old enough (and some of us think sensible enough) to go out for awhile in the mornings and evenings and not leave the backyard.
Of course, Darcy is not near that stage yet as she doesn't live here full time, but she enjoyed her first taste of the outdoors and the bostons after they have had tennis ball time.
Who wouldn't be slightly cautious when this face is sitting in the grass?
Nevertheless, Miss Darcy put a brave paw forward and explored.
I'll let her tell you how it a went down:
Do I dare go out to where that "post-tennis-ball" face lies?
Oh, yes I do! I've seen it all here at Boston Manor and those dogs don't faze me at all!
Well.... maybe I took that a little too fast. That is one scary face! She's not like that on the inside!
I'll check out the patio and it's surroundings.
I sure hope they won't have to use this electricity-maker during storm season this year. I'm told it's very noisy and I am soooooo sensitive.
I'll just stretch out for a bit and relax.
As if I can with that flaming torch thing looming above me. What is with these people?
It must be safe to venture out again, Sadie seems to be relaxing with the guy who feeds me bacon in the morning - have I got him trained!
I'll get out there quickly while THEY are busy with other things.
Holy Catnip! That Sadie sure moves fast! When can I have the yard to myself?? Never, according to Aunt Bumby.
Guess it's time to head in and reclaim my throne.
Aaaahhhhhh. Now, all is right with Princess Darcy's world. Meow!
Next time I will know what to expect!
Miss Darcy out!
