Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Man Cat Monday Adventure

When I'm outside, I don't like to be coddled by Mom. I have my Man Cat image to uphold after all. She followed me down to the bottom of the yard hoping to snatch me up and cuddle.
I jumped into the empty firewood stand (Mom doesn't feel like bothering with firewood and fires now that Dad is gone).

From there I decided to hop the fence into Mr. Stuff's yard. He has something called a "catch basin" in the easement between his yard and mine.

I like to explore around the catch basin.

And sometimes I like to jump in there! If it hasn't been rainy, it's not TOO wet down there. I can follow the sewer down to the creek, or I can go in the other direction and end up at the street gutter. I'm not going to let Mom baby me; a man cat's gotta have his independence.

But don't wander too far! We would hate it if you got hurt or something!

Jake, you sure got some good places to explore! Just be very careful.

That is a very scarey looking place. Please be very careful. Even big strong man cats need to stay safe and sound. Come home soon.

I understand how important it is to maintain the mancat image.

Mom would have a fit if I went in da naybors yard and down into the sewer! She'd be furry acitable and panic and stuff. Mom's can be furry silly.

Please be very careful Jake. I hear sewer mice can get pretty big!

'Sheba, why would I be anything other than proud of your squirrel hunting skills? I WISH I could hunt those creatures that torment me. At least I know you've had some success. One got in our house when I was a kitten and I was too small to catch it.
