Friday Felines

As mentioned earlier this week, despite the door being open, Rupert seems more than content to be a house cat. When I'm out in the garden, he come, poke his head out - maybe walk across the ledge  or the plant pot...
but almost always...
He settles down on the inside of the door frame and watches from the safety of the house. That is of course, if Peno doesn't wander out...
While she was never as adventurous as the boys, she did like to go out and nibble on the grass or roll on the warm patio stones. Last year, she didn't get much opportunity. She won't go out if you won't leave the door open, and we weren't ready to give Rupert that much freedom. But, she's realized now that the door is open, and staying open.
But Rupert has to be EVERYWHERE that Peno is. 
So the minute she wanders out, he'll be right behind. Of course, there's really no better cat to show him the ropes of the yard... because the first scary thing, and she runs right back inside. With Rupert on her tail.

That's my two inside kitties. I can leave the door open and they peek out but the minute they see one of the outside kitties they are back inside in a flash.

Too cute to see the cats venture into the 'jungle'!
When Lena is one, I hope to introduce her to bits of outside (she does the screened in pool area now, tho) but it is such a big step. Her leg will always hamper her efforts to outrun a stray dog which happens around here and I just couldn't bear to think about that........so I won't!

I have an indoor-outdoor cat who can scale the 6' privacy fence with ease. His MO is to be gone all night, sleep inside all day. The other cat is indoor only, but against his will. He is such a doofus he wouldn't last long out in the real world... nor would the birds.

I find them beautiful outside. My own cats do not go out but I love seeing a cat outside watching a butterfly or a bird. Cats and and nature. Such the perfect mix

Ru and Peno are so cute!
