On Point

Ouch - sharp - ouch - stupid pointy rocks...

In case you ever wondered why I don't try to make a break for it - it's the stupid desert landscaping that surrounds my place. I did make it all the way around to the front yard once and was locked outside. It was very scary!! I pawed and meowed my little heart out on the front door until Mommy heard and rescued me. I've kept close to the house ever since. I am a true Housecat and proud of it!

  1. There's nothing wrong with being a housecat! Those rocks look like they would hurt your delicate little paws Fin!

  2. Being a housecat is da bomb! Plus your little paws are so supple, you don't want them to get hard and callused

  3. I don't stray far from home either (Mummy only gives me supervised outdoor time during the summer).

  4. I'm about the only cat around here that can't go outside...only on the deck in the summer. I like it that way most of the time. If there were a bunch of rocks round to slice up my tender paws, I'd just stay inside all the time. Instead I have to look out the window at the grass and the nip forest...sigh.

  5. There's not a thing wrong with being a house cat Fin. Some kitties are good adventuring, and some stay inside most of the time. We live vicariously through the adventurers.

  6. Fin, I don't think I would like walking on those pointy rocks either! Sometimes when mom takes me outside, I don't even like to walk on the grass! Go figure!

  8. I would like to be an outdoor cat. When the back door is open I sit at the screen and look out. But it has been so many years since I was truly outside on my own.... and my mom doesn't trust me. Sandusky and Spooky are the ones who get to go out!

  10. Hehehe, those rocks! Fin, after all being a Housecat is much better for your parents nerves and you do have the patio to soak up real sun... Best of both worlds!

  11. P.S.: What's up with the fountain? Still not filled?

  12. That looks like a reflexology path! You're a brave ladycat, Fin. Mum tried a reflexology path once, and it brought her to tears!

  14. WE are mostly housecats too. I go out briefly in the morning about 7am and I'm back in within 1/2 an hour. Alfie only goes out under close snoopervision wiv a harness on becos he's still a pip-squeak baby.
    Being a housecat is nice!

  15. Fin, you are such a character... and always a lady.

  16. The big world outside IS scary so best to stay in one's own backyard. GK has the same much the same thought. Tiger, on the other hand, will NOT stay in the yard, and he has a little beat around our house that he patrols -- big responsibility....we don't want any riffraff round here, you know!

    I'm quite keen on having a desert garden -- since seeing the one at the Huntington in CA -- but they don't do well here, too humid, sigh.

  17. Those rocks look rather nasty. Good thing your Mommy saved you. We're housecats too, but when we're in the summer house we'd like to be outdoor cats - we have no nasty rocks though.

  18. Yow! That look like a painful excursion!

  19. I don't think I could handle stepping on those rocks. You're a better cat than I, Fin!

  20. Absolutely nothing wrong with being a housecat. Its a rough life, but some of us need to do it!

  21. Ahhhh, yes. We had to look at your profile to see why you have desert landscaping.

    My advice...stay indoors, Fin. It's much more comfortable.
