Mountain House Spotty Sunday

We have been having a wonderful time at our mountain house. As I've already reported, it was a great trip up. The weather has been glorious. We go for walks and play in the mornings, take long naps in the afternoon, more play and walks in the evenings, then snuggles in the bed at night. And lots of food and treats. Its been great.

Its a little too warm during the day for my regular outfits, but the spotted pink bandana from Lilly Lu is the perfect way to stay stylish and cool. Our backyard is pretty native, with lots of lizards, quails, cottontails, and chipmunks. I went hunting.

I actually spotted a lizard in this corner and chased at all the way down the length of the fence. Was it George all the way from Florida? And guess what? I CAUGHT IT!! I was so excited I flipped it over, Mom could see its belly as it sommersalted through the air. But then it ran under a sage brush, and alas, I lost it. Mom was relieved.

I finally got to go out in the front yard. Its a little less wild there, with some pretty shrubs. I had to take a break after my exciting hunt and sniff the air.

Don't forget Weekend Cat Blogging #103 at the House of the (Mostly) Black Cats!

Oh, and sorry I haven't been visiting and commenting as much as usual. Our dial up here in dreadfully slow! We will try to catch up when we get back...

Tara, that bandanna is very cute on you. I think your mountain house is so beautiful, too! You are very very lucky to get to go lizard hunting. I am pretty sure that was George.

Tara, I think you're kind of like the Pied Piper to those lizards -- they follow you everywhere!

We're SO envious of your mountain house! We're stuck here in our city house, with noise from the basketball court in the park and from the nightclub on the corner, and from the streets, and the park .... oh, for some QUIET!
