...when plans change

When Gussy looked back on our way out yesterday I knew I had to follow his gaze.
Behind, Ollie was rolling on the floor seemingly practicing a good back stroke probably because it had rained some days ago.

Then he pretended to be an opera singer, a worth effort in my opinion because he has the most beautiful vocal cords.

Augustus said that he could not look anymore.

 Then he checked with me to see what to do.

 Ollie showed me a good portion of his beautiful tongue to indicate that he was not delirious.

 Augustus thought he'd better check for himself.

 Then I found the two of them rolling on the ground.

 Augustus tried to peel off the ground

 and escape.  Next we heard the parrots on the tree outside the complex and the cat boys were off to check these birds pronto!

Sometimes we step out with the intention of observing, reading, and reflecting, and we succeed.  Other times, a certain orange cat starts playing and the plans change.

In my feline excursion that day I was thinking about this:

"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay undiscovered before me."- Isaac Newton.

I am certain we all have experienced the pleasures of discovery and pondered over magical mysteries.  Cat boys said that they had.

The weekend is around the corner.  Enjoy.  Cat boys sent you kitty kisses and purrs!

Ciao everyone!

  6. There always seems to be some magic and new discoveries out on the patio belonging to our favorite cat boys. The synchronized rolls, the singing and a parrot or two. Such a happy place!

  7. Oooh belly fur! That's my discovery. I love those boys. I think the more we discover, the more we realize we don't yet know. At least it seems to be this way with me. Great post.

  8. Your cats are beautiful! I love this post so much. Watching cats is so much fun, you can never guess what they're gonna do next ;)

  9. Oh what a beautiful sight! Furry bellies and athletic postures. I'm happy spring is here :-)
