Freaky Venus And Madame Mim Go For A Walk...
I opened all the windows today, and the Bengals went into such serious Spring Fever, I thought I would take them out for the First Walk of the year. They have little harnesses and I wondered if they would remember them. Stupid, they are not. When I took them down, they both ran for the door in a cacophony of mews.
Venus wasn't real SURE this was ok, but that is sort of her take on most things that aren't lying on the floor with me or playing Featherstick. She has a suspicious mind, she does.
You may have heard that most cats do not take well to leashes and will not walk on them. No, really. Bengals seem fine with it tho. You can't exactly get your workout walk in, like with a dog, it's a little more rambling with lots of stops, they won't Heel. And if they decided they wish to go elsewhere, you go, or risk looking kind of silly dragging your now boneless Bengal along behind.
Adventure Kitty Mim climbs trees. Any tree. All trees. The shots I missed of Mim coming DOWN from her tree climbing would have made me a rich women. Going up, she is a graceful Leopard in the Wild. Down, not so much.
Venus got over her suspicions, and had a fine time, until my Neighbors 2 year old came by, and that was enough. Bolted for the door. She likes Mariska well, but anyone new could be Trouble, and she is gone! I let her in, and went back out. This was, judging by the HOWLS of Mew coming thru the open windows, far, far worse.
Thru the magic of my zoom lens (Am I a photographer or WHAT?) we get to see King Lear the Huge and Little Queen Mab, who also got in on some Window Action way at the top of the house. Sadly, tho Magic got a Window as well, he declined to be photographed for tonight's post.
Love and Leash Walking,
