MANCAT MONDAY: SPRING IS IN THE AIR (AND ELSEWHERE)

It may only be the first of March, but my mancats are definitely sensing the approach of Spring.  Aside from doing their sniffing duties around the perimeters of their territory, they also just sit quite still and sniff the air around them.

There are so many new scents and smells once the snow begins to melt.  Even I can smell the difference -- it's a multi-layered scent, much of which I can't identify.  I'm sure my mancats can detect every nosy nuance, though.


Here's Dylan ears back and nose thrust forward.  All senses are on the alert; smell front and foremost!


I love this shot where Dylan lifts his head, nose in the air, all the better to sniff with!


Dante, too, has a twitchy nose!


He turns his head in every direction to make sure he captures everything worthy of his delicate sensibilities.


And his brother would be one of those things. 


As long as Dylan doesn't get his back up, everything should be fine.


Dylan must smell like Spring as well!  He's been soaking up the scents from all around him and rubbing all over whatever he may come across.


Then, there is the self-sniff!  Let's see what it smells like back here! 


And Dante's paw has the aroma of damp grass and rotting leaves! Simply heavenly!


Meanwhile Dylan relaxes and steeps in his scents of self!

Both of my mancats are extremely SCENTSible whether they're sniffing from near or from far!   There's no nose quite like a mancat's nose.  Ya knows?

That is a great shot of Dylan. I've seen Angus do that a few times with his ears slightly back sniffing the air while he sits on the top step.
