Rough and Tumble

These boys have endless energy! It is all or nothing with these two... either fast asleep or operating at full pelt! The house furnishings barely stand a chance...
Bingley can take a corner at speed and on two legs!

Darcy can leap like a ballet dancer.. (or a slippery eel)..
I wouldn't want to bump into these two on a dark night....although having said that, it would of course depend on whether or not they are asleep!

Hum... more outdoor adventures, but am feeling edgy with Darcy. He is suddenly climbing EVERYTHING... up the apple tree.. Then the plum tree which borders our garden .. now that is a worry because he can easily jump onto the wall from there and be gone (eek .. sob).

He even lobbed himself at the wall before slithering along the conservatory drain pipe. I thought Birmans were more placid.. stay around types? Bingley stared at his brothers antics with his tongue out then attempted a shimmy up the apple tree, clinging uncertainly there for a bit and then, unsure how best to complete the trip... just let go and twisted in a poor impression of a stunt man.
No, this outdoor business has me in a lather. I can't see me ever sitting relaxing to read, doze, sip wine with my hubby again but forever alert to feline escapees. I love them too much to ever lose them. My spirits were distracted, indeed lifted, by the most gorgeous Birthday present from the dearest of friends - all handmade of course... thank you to Denise XX

Green World

...One late afternoon the time finally came to open up our conservatory doors and lead the boys outside. Flying insects, breeze, fluttering petals, pond water, spiky grass, cobwebs and MUD! They loved it all.

Cautious at first.. but quite soon jubilant, delighting in everything.
The alabama pot much loved by Darcy.. even from inside....!

They drank from the pond, hid before pouncing upon each other, charged head long across the lawn, up and down the paths.

... lay in wait..

..spotted something extra interesting only to have a mishap...
...Darcy thought batting a bee was fun and stung his paw. We came in after that. But back out together another time soon...
