Brave new world

A month since she came to live with us, Lucy finally made her first foray into the outside world today. We offered her an opportunity to go outside last Saturday but she seemed rather reluctant, although this quite possibly something to do with the fact that it was pouring with rain at the time! This morning was yet another grey one but it wasn??t wet so we decided to give her another chance. She didn??t need much encouragement this time and before long she was scampering all over the garden, exploring the undergrowth and climbing up the trees and fences.

The first step over the threshold….

Lucy's first port of call was this wooden shelter which my Dad built for our first cat, Bob. It was obviously full of interesting smells!

Lucy in motion

She figured out how to scale fences very quickly!

Back inside for a moment to take it all in…..

….and we're off again!

Lucy found the bamboo fascinating.

After scaling the trellis behind the bamboo she sat on the fence for a few moments, surveying her new territory.

After a brief trip down the side of the shed she came back looking a rather scruffy. She didn't like the cobwebs at all!

      Was she an outside cat before she was in the pet shelter? and by the way, do you know "simon's cat"? this strip makes me remember the comic named "first snow" it is really funny.

      What a beautiful wide eyed pussy cat! Lucy looks like a hunter......I know I know she's your pet and gets spoiled....a lot. She's so pretty how can you help it.....haha
      I live in the country and cats are for keeping the rodent population down that's why I see her as a good hunter! Beautiful set of great photos!
