Adventures of Leon

..the wide-mouthed cat.

I let the kitties out for a run in the back yard today.  Not because I really wanted to, but because Ben let food fall onto the bottom of the oven and it filled the lounge with smoke, so I needed to clear the air.

I originally had the kitties closed out of the lounge, but their pitiful cries made me open the door so they could have some adventures in the back yard.

Damara didn’t want any pictures taken, so I played paparazzi to Leon.

He thought it was brilliant, and happily mewed to me while I followed him around.   Mewing is not to be confused with meowing.

Mewing is the sound of a happy Leon!   Meowing is the forlorn sound he makes when I bring him back inside.


He obsesses over this tuft of grass.  I know I need to trim it back again!  Leon’s quite happy to do it for me…


Hmm, yes.  Wonderful taste, this grass.  Strong notes of summer with a hint of rain.

Leon says, "AH!"

This one makes me laugh so hard.  Yeah.  That’s my Leon. :)

    He he so cute. You only have your cats inside normally right? Why is this? I know in a lot of US states it’s illegal to have cats outside due to their destruction of wildlife is this why you keep yours in side? Very responsible

      We keep Leon & Damara (the two youngest) inside, but our two older boys, Winters and Moose, are inside/outside cats, because they have been all their lives. The last cat we had, Zeus, got hit by a car in front of me and died in my arms, so I don’t want that happening again. I know I’m taking a risk letting Moose and Winters out still, but they turn into really unhappy/depressed cats when kept inside for long periods of time, whereas Leon & Damara don’t know that they’re really missing anything once they come back inside. You double the life expectancy of your cat if they are an indoors-only cat.

    Cute. When you have people babies, they are going to be the most loved and photographed children ever. I can see it now.
