A Few of My Favourite Things!

WCB 18


We had some lovely weather in Melbourne last Sunday. The sun was shining and crowds of people were outside in T-shirts and singlets enjoying the spring weather. A & I packed a picnic lunch and took the cats out for their first outdoor adventure. We placed the girls in their harnesses and carried them to the nearby Carlton Gardens, laid out a picnid rug and let the cats out of the bag. At first, they both stayed close by A, getting used to their new environment.


Soon, however, we noticed Bella creeping off the picnic rug to lay on the ground. Look at her reaching out with her tongue for the blades of grass! She was just soaking up the glorious sunshine and keeping a sharp eye on her new surroundings, her curiousity aroused by the movement of people, birds and bees around her. Tasha remained too cautious to stray off the rug. She remained close to A the entire time, content to sit in front of him and to share some gourmet cheese offerings that we had picked up from Simon Johnson. Look at the way she is gazing adoringly at A in this next photo:

Head over to Clare's at Eat Stuff to see photos of the other gorgeous felines...

  • Awww, they are both so adorable! I love how Bella is enjoying the grass, soaking up all that sunshine and Tasha is looking so sweet on A's lap.

  • Your little ones seem so calm ~ I suspect Agnes would throw a fit if I tried to take her out on a harness. She is very timid.

  • boo_licious & sweetnicks: isn't Bell's expression just one of pure bliss?

    linda & indyfoodie: we don't try to walk them on the leads! Tasha gets a little frightened at first, but she was quite relaxed by the end of our picnic

  • You have such beautiful cats! I tried to take my cats out in harnesses when they were kittens. It didn't go so well for us. One cat wouldn't stop playing wih the leash and the other cat laid on his back and refused to move! That was the end of my cat walking days!
