Cat Tails

Now that she's a little older, we've been giving Ember more access to the great outdoors. To say she loves it would be an understatement. She thrives on being able to explore and I imagine, in her eyes, our two and a half acres is a veritable new planet full of discoveries yet to be made. From the pine forest to the tents of willow branches there are more changes in landscape than she could or ever will comprehend. After six months of exploring every inch of the old farmhouse and I do mean every inch this is exactly what the doctor ordered for a kitty with a bad case of the curiosities. 

While I was out clipping cattails for an indoor arrangement, I heard heavy footsteps through the reeds. Caught up in finding some that were still intact, it was a few minutes before I looked down to say hello to Callie because surely that was her romping her way through there. Nope. It seems a drain pipe and tall, tall reeds and cattails are the best place for a kitten to explore on a sunny Saturday afternoon in October.


~Be well friends~

Photo edited with two of my fave textures from Kim,
Portrait and Warm Sun with a little Serious Scratch Magic added in.

What a great photo! Curious cats are so much fun to watch! I'm sure she's exhausted each day from all the 'new' stuff she's discovering!

I'm allergic to cats and I've never owned one, but if I did I would want an orange one like Ember. She's so beautiful and this is a lovely photo!

Oh Ember you lucky girl, you have the perfect land to explore. Watch out for the big scary animals!!
Can't wait to get a cat, and a dog :).

I love this post. My "elder" cat is enjoying more time outside. She loves to roll around and pretend to stalk and hunt. Very sweet picture!

Oh, what a cutie patootie!
Ours get outside play-time each day, too! The back-yard turns into a jungle in the Amazon for them, I am sure!
Give all the critters smooches from Auntie misha!
LYLAS!
