Friday Felines

The lovely Maine Coone Ollie has made himself a pretty regular visitor around here. I've stopped feeding him, so he doesn't come every day, but he generally pops by once a week to check in on us.

On one of the relatively warmer days,  I was puttering about in the backyard when I was startled by a noise at the fence. But it was just Ollie popping under to say "hi".
 He followed me around the yard while I checked on the gardens
Keeping an eye out for Buddy, the neighbour's Yellow Lab.
We also played a game of "Chase the garden stake"
Just look at the size of paws! They leave beautiful prints in the snow.
 And after a fun little play session... I gave him what he really wanted...

A couple sprigs of the fresh catnip I have growing in the house.
He's such a handsome visitor.

Ollie is wonderful! Big and handsome like Snowball that comes to visit us on occasion. Nice of you to treat him to some catnip.
Have a wonderful weekend!

GOSH HE is so handsome. I love his coloring and his eyes. I can't believe you are so far north and get out in your yard so much in February.
