Spring - On the Ground, and in the Air! (May, 2010)

Although we had a mild winter, spring never comes too early on the Island.  But recently the cats have noticed a great deal more greenery in the yard:

Very strange: Pat brought home this oval-shaped plastic thingy, which has its own matching lid. She seemed to assume we would know exactly what to do with it:

Inside the thingy, there is white sand:

Pat puts the lid on top every night to keep the sand dry.  She told us we should "use" the sand instead of going to the next door neighbors' flowerbeds. What in the world does she mean?

The white sand does feel good against our toes! And we are certain we can find some use for the lid . . .

Boris and Natasha think their black fur looks particularly beautiful next to this shade of red:

Bored with trying to figure out the purpose of the new red thingy, Tootsie takes to the treetops:

Natasha gets SO tired of hearing that Hershey and Tootsie are the VERY best tree climbers of them all! so she decides to do some showing off of her own:

oh-oh . . . getting down is not as easy as it looks!

Boris, Schooner, and Farah resolve to stay on solid ground:

What a great post, guys! You look like you've been having a grand time outside. Excellent tree-climbing skills!

BTW, We think you'll get the hang of the "sandbox" soon enough. At least we hope so. :-)

Oh my! What a wonderful place you have - we love all your photos! It's nice to see a bit of green life coming up after winter, isn't it? We're just so impressed by your tree climbing, Tootsie and Natasha - we hope to get know all of you!
That red thing sure looks interesting!
