Going Outside

I asked The Mom, in my very sweetest purring voice, "Mom, may I please go outside, as it has been, well....... since forever; the last time I was outside. I will be very careful, I won't eat any grass because it makes me sick all over the floor, I will come when you call, and I won't seek out Mistrie to hassle."

I heard her rummaging in my basket. Then she scooped me up, put me on the bed, and proceeded to put my purple confinement gadget (harness) on me, something I haven't worn for several years. It took her forever because it needed to be resized ( I have put on a few pounds, you see.) She snapped on the blue lead rope and opened the door for me. The sun hit my fur, the dirt squished between my tosies, and the air smelled of spring. I immediately sought out some grass to eat; infraction number one. Then I got stubborn and wouldn't go where she suggested; infraction number two. I went in search of Mistrie, but she hid from me; infraction number three. The Mom said, "enough already," but this is just the tip of the iceburg. I shall return for more fun in the sun. There is no stopping me now.

On a serious note, our furry good friend Shaggy of Little Cat Feet is feeling poorly. Please go visit his blog and send him well-wishes.

    Ohh I like that purple thing your wearing. My mommy said she might let me have one when I get older. Yippie. Also that stuff you call grass looks yummy, does it taste like tuna? I like tuna.

    I remember those days long, long ago when I went to the City of Outside once or twice, but those memories are shady. Perhaps I need to ask my human pet if we can have I can have a new chance at it.

    It looks and sounds like you had a lot of fun, Patches! I hope you get to go outside more often!

    Purrsonally, I understand about you and grass, because I do the same thing. It tastes great going down, but after a little while, well... it just... kinda... oh, you know what happens next.

    It sounds like you had a really fun day! That's WAY better than goin' to the v-e-t!

    I eat grass too and it doesn't make me sick, but I did pass some poop-covered-but-still-recognisable-grass the other day, which kind of revolted my mum when she cleaned my litter box. You look like you had fun doing naughty things, Patches! I am glad our friend Shaggy is feeling better.

    I gotted to go outside on Caturday. It was furry, furry nice out, but I was a little ascared, so I went unner a bush. I don't fink Mom was happy cuz she couldn't foller me an couldn't get my leash around the bush wifout droppin it. So I went under the roses. How was I supposed to know they haf ouchy fings? I asplored a lot afore I got too ascared an hads to go inside. I want to go again!

    We get to go outside sometiems too. But only until Kiara runs into the neighbors yard wif the woffies. Then, Momma gets mad an brings us bof insides. Why do I have to go in just 'cuz Kiki isn't behaving??

    I love the sun! I ran ourside this evening. Sometimes mom lets me stay out and she will sort of watch me to make sure I don't go anywhere I shouldn't, but not tonight. I don't wear a harness, but our old Siamese Simone did. Yours is prettier!

    You look really nice out there in the sun beams and green grasses. I have never been scardy me. I like bein' inside wif my Momma. I don't fink I would like dat harness...I have never worn anytink but my furrs. Momma keeps telling me she wants to put a die-mond collar on me...and den she laughs.

    I wouldn't worry about that harness having to be "resized"--my mom says lots of us put on a few pounds in the winter. You sure look like you were having fun...especially the eating grass part!

    Sometimes it is all supposed to happen xactly that way - you go out and do what you want. The heck wif the humans. You been inside waitin forevah to eat some grass. You lookin so purty in the sun is worth it all! Mine Mom said she was gonna get me one of those leashes too.
