Mycah has always been an indoor cat. Her exposure to and experience in the Great Outdoors has been limited to her occasional tenative forays out through an open door. She'll guiltily creep out, and then go no farther than the nearest patch of lawn, where she proceeds to graze.
She loves grass; I think it's because no matter how slow she is, the grass isn't going to get away from her. In lieu of treats these days, she gets a handful of grass from the lawn. A handful of blades on a plate and she's good to go.
Lately, her plate goes near the sliding glass door. From that vantage point, she can watch the birds and squirrels that frequently visit my back deck. Sometimes, there is a close encounter.
Seconds after this photo was snapped, Mycah lunged for the squirrel. Fortunately for all concerned, the screen door stopped her pounce in a rather precipitous manner.
I've seen her take down moths in the house, but I suspect a squirrel is beyond her capability to handle. She simply doesn't have the experience.
Later in the day, though, I saw her scouting around for a knife to cut through the mesh.
Always plotting, she is.
If it's Friday, it's time for the Friday Ark.
Over the weekend, expect to see:
- the Carnival of the Cats, at CatSynth
- Weekend Cat Blogging, at Chey's Place
- Bad Kitty Cats Festival of Chaos, at Bad Kitty Cat's Journal
