Chessie and Ishi Go for a Walk

Hi there people persons. It is Chessie and Ishi, Tina's cats. We took a really fine walk the other day, it was warm and clear and the flowers smelled so good!

Ishi was first out the door and down the stairs.
Chessie wasn't sure if he wanted to leave the porch. You can see him behind the bench in the center of the picture below.
Ishi checked for lizards and waited on the rock wall for Chessie to get his act in gear.
Nope, no lizards.
Also no Chessie. Where the heck is he?
Gonna hafta go get him!
Okay, now we're talking.
Told you it smelled good out here!
Nope, Chessie, no lizards. You never listen to me.
These rocks smell really interesting. Something has been living out here.
When we take a walk we really take the time to stop and smell... not always the flowers, though.
 Reminds me of that song, something about slimy guts. A cat's dream.
 Time for a rest, my nose is tired. Chessie says, come on, you are the slowest walker.
 Okay, I will speed it up,
I think that is a deer over there under the scrub oaks.
 Let's go check out the truck, looks like that's where the deer are going,
 You go first, Chess, I am going to take a break, right after I smell this rock.
 Well? Are you going or not? I am NOT going first, I don't like deer.
Mom, make him go first!
 Finally. Whew, got another whiff of this rock. Something has been sitting on it. Maybe a fox?
 Yes, a fox. They like to sit on the rocks and they leave little poops there.
 Wonder where the fox are now?
Wow, just can't get enough of this rock. Maybe Mom will let me bring it into the house?
 Sorry Chessie, I am not leaving here, you go on ahead.
 I will hold the fort.
 Chessie stalks the wild does.
 Well, they are gone now, Ishi was so slow.
Ishi are you still smelling that rock????
 Trying to get this rock to the house, maybe if I bump it with my hip?
 Mommmmm! Come and get this rock for me, please?
Chessie says, give it up, Ishi! Mom only brings the crystals into the house, not big smelly rocks that had fox poop on them!
 Time to go in and get our numbles. Luna sure missed a good walk today.
The fox and deer will have to fend for themselves for a while.

Cat's are so funny! Our Annie is always checking out her territory and looking for lizards unaware of her presence.
They are fun to take pictures of. Nice photo shoot.
Happy Springtime.

was ishi the one that went missing a while back? i have been wondering....glad to see both cats are having fun outside. our cats are going out again but there is still some icy spots so it is hilarious to see bobalu is slow motion on those. sadie is 15 and we are hoping she continues in good health for many more springs.
