Time for Cat to go solo, from city cat to rural cat, house-cat to outdoor cat, time to explore the great outdoors. A dignified walk around the garden on the lead, seemed he was ready for independence. Spent the first two hours exploring the shed and perplexing the swallows.

Explored the front garden; see how relaxed he is?

Those pesky swallows again…

Pheasants wander off to check out the bird feeders, cat follows at a distance, Mr Pheasant espies the errant feline: “Tuk! Tuk!” he calls, walking toward the now hunkered down cat.  Cat lies very still, pheasant walks toward still cat before turning his back, returning to the ladies. “Don’t turn your back on the cat!” Cat. Bird. Whirring wings, startled birds, startled cat. Lessons learned?

Pheasant – Maybe shouldn’t turn my back on the cat – thought he was asleep!

Cat –  Well that was big and noisy and curiosity did not satisfy the cat…

And the chimney?

Free to explore the roof that he has eyed for the past few days; suddenly in reach. Heads straight to the top of stone ridge; peers into chimney, “Don’t you dare. No! don’t you dare!”  Left staring at cat’s rump –“No, no, noooo!”  Cat reappears; curiosity did not kill the cat!  Think I came close…

Cat relaxes after a busy day!

(No pheasants or cats were harmed in the writing of this post!)
