Chasing the Squirrel (December 2009)

Early this morning, cats and humans looked up to see Hershey higher in the trees than he has ever ventured before:


What could he possibly be doing up there?


Aha! It's a SQUIRREL! (if you don't believe us, click the image to enlarge:)



Just a tiny bit further now . . .


"Almost . . . GOTCHA!"


Hey!! No fair jumping to that other tree:


Tootsie and Schooner come running:



In hopes of heading off the squirrel, Tootsie scurries up a neighboring tree . . .



But even with two cats in pursuit, the squirrel manages to evade capture:


Carefully, Tootsie makes her way back down . . .


pauses for a sniff . . .


and continues her descent:


On the ground again, she and Hershey come to terms with their disappointment:



"I guess he really is gone, right, Toots?"




"At least we still have each other, Hershey":


Blackberries Go Hunting (November 2009)

It was a quiet November day in Charlottetown. Boris was attacking the Flame Bush in the backyard:


Cocoa was relaxing underneath the deck:


Suddenly, Boris notices the arrival of his mother, Nasha-Tasha, who seems to be carrying something in her mouth:





Inside the pen, Farah also senses that something out of the ordinary is happening:



And she's not the only cat wondering, "What does Nasha have there?"


Boris moves in for a closer look:



Nasha seems willing to share with Boris. But Cocoa approaches more tentatively:





And then, somehow, the prey manages to dart into a pile of leaves!



WHERE DID THAT VARMINT GET TO?


Cocoa joins in the search:




But the Varmint is nowhere to be found:




Boris is sorry to give up on the search. But, he might as well get back to his Flame Bush, while Nasha goes off in search of new prey:


Maybe the Varmint is still here, somewhere?


That's all, folks!

New Furniture! (August 2009)


Today Pat told us she was going to the store to buy us our favorite wet food. But, she came back with NEW FURNITURE!












Summer and Hershey compare notes: The New Furniture is GOOD!


By day . . .


And by night!
