Hangin' With The Bean

Yay! Finally, we got another sunny afternoon so Craig and I took The Bean out on the deck to hang out enjoy the weather. She was super squirrelly. She rolled around and enjoyed the warmth. She chirped, and played, and poked her head and paws between the boards. She hung over the edge and watched Craig fuss with the plants below.

She was one happy Bean, and we had lots of fun watching her have fun.

  2. Aw, those are great pictures of her hanging off the edge. In the sunshine, you can really see the gorgeous colours in her coat. She looks very happy and content! :)

  4. So she doesn't trying to get down? It looks like only five feet or so down, it seems like she'd try to jump.

  5. She's allowed to come down (we're right there supervising). There are stairs, so there's no need to leap. She's pretty happy up there, though. As you all know,, cats like to be in high places. From the rail around the deck, you can see all sorts of interesting things.

  9. Anon,,, Once or twice we've had a kitten on the deck, but besides that, no. They're not fully vaccinated, and I would never want to expose them to anything harmful.

    Jerry Lee Pickett was the only one who got a chance to feel grass between his toes while in our care. Here's the post documenting the day. If you weren't following the blog when we had The Picketts, I should warn you, it's a tear-jerker.

    I love it when kitties splay their legs out like the first photo of the beautiful Bean. I read the sad story of Mr. Jerry Lee and oh what a sad story. I am trying to hold back the tears as I am at work on my lunch break and it won't do to look all puffy eyed there. Laurie you are an angel to all these kittens. Bless you for helping make the right decision for Mr. Jerry Lee. He felt your love before and after leaving this earth.
