To Grandmother's House We Go

A blast of real cold is headed this way, 20 degree cold. There may even be some flakes involved. While the day was still nice the kitties and I headed over the stream and into the forest for a visit to grandmother's house where the plumbing needed to be winterized and prepared for a blast of real cold.

This is baby kitties first complete trip there and back. Miss Collar came along of course. They are forming a cooperative and functioning herd, but they are still cats. Three in one picture is asking a lot.




















There's a big rock on the way.




















The dark clouds rolled in. A fine mist has started. The wind speed is increasing. It's dark now and the kitties are inside. I like to get them in around dark before the varmints come out. They are doing the usual bouncing off the walls, hyper energy, spazz attack that occurs every evening between dark and about 8:30.

It is tempting to toss them back outside until they have calmed down. Instead I'll just have to wait until they grow out of it.

Maybe some of the kitty toys would help.

They have already played with those toys. They're not as fun anymore.

An empty box, perhaps?

Cindy they do like the box I use for laundry when it is empty. I could get another one.

Puppies are no better. Run, bite, jump on something, then do it again. Toys are not nearly as much fun as another dog, Kitty, or the humans.

The box should work fine. It's even a good play toy for the human child.

That's the Cat Crazies - I just look at it as "Better than Television Entertainment."
