It is FINALLY and ACTUALLY spring out here!!! Mom's been taking us out on leash walks in the yard and watching all the birdies at the feeder and eating grass that sprouted up in the gardens and and and I peed on a peon plant! Mom was a little surprised since we usually just "Do the Captain Dance" as Mom puts it. That means we back up to something and pace our back feet up and down and twitch your tail in a funny manner. Mom read somewhere that this is a form of marking territory that sprays a smell humans can't smell, and doesn't seem to affect colors of woodwork or anything. And since Captain Morgan does this at various places around the house (The fridge, Mom's dresser...) the humans have taken to calling it the Captain Dance!
But anyways, I wasn't doing the Captain Dance! You see, there's been an alien cat in our backyard twice! And he's super super friendly with the humans. The first day he showed up, he howled at the back door, then climbed the screen and hung on it, looking in at Mom and screaming. She was so startled, she started calling vets, animal control & eventually asking neighbors if they knew this guy. He was just too tame and older and friendly. Turns out the mail man's seen him around. He's someone's cat that they leave outside a lot... That's stupid and dangerous!
Well, Mom that's not my response, to be all concerned for his well being. Oh, no! I took action! And I sprayed a dead looking, dormant peony! It's somewhat near the back deck. Mom told Dad, and he said "Well it's called a Pee-on-me plant!" They seem to think it's funny and cute that I did that. Said that's fine as long as I keep doing that OUTSIDE... I'm not cute! I think I'm MANLY! And fierce! That cat won't be coming back here! Or I'll pee on the pee-on-me plant again! Ha! Take THAT alien cat!
Mom's changing out my leash. That's weird! Did I pee on my leash?! Oops!

Way to let that stray know that your house is protected!
Oh don't you just love spring time, seeing everything wake up from the winter! We don't have cats coming into our yard, just the front, but we don't go out there only the back...
Yes you are a manly cat now!
I spray sometimes, but trust me, everyone smells it.
