A Gauntlet of Cats.....

Because it's dark in the mornings, we are now going for
Street Light Walks.
It also means the cats of the 'hood
are still on the prowl.
We call the cul-de-sac end of our street
the Gauntlet of Cats.
There are always felines in front yards
on both sides.....
and we have to stay close to HER with our
retractable leads LOCKED so we can't lunge.

After Marmalade, the big ginger tom, moved out
most of the cats now are black with a splash of white.
SHE doesn't see them in the dark--we DO!
But the past few weeks there has been a new
kitty.  We call him Ghost Kitty.
This is an Identikit picture we made of him.

We don't know where Ghost Kitty lives because he is always in a different front yard!
Sometimes he will flatten himself when we pass, but
sometimes he rears up and hisses at us!
Yesterday, morning he was gone.
We didn't see him anywhere....
Then Dui STOPPED and stared behind us.
Ghost Kitty was walking down the street BEHIND us!

Happy Birthday Dr Seuss!

Yes, it is March 2nd here.  Dr Seuss Day.
As a former Infants teacher, Dr Seuss books were  a favourite
'after lunch' read.
In fact, some of them, SHE can recite!
HER favourites are:

But Dr Seuss had a varied career--not just the author of children's books.  Unbeknownst to most people (including us) he was a political cartoonist during WWII.  
Happy Birthday, Dr Seuss!
