The mancats were really taking advantage of the warmer weather. After many days inside, they were as squirrelly as those evil black squirrels. No amount of wrestling and THoE can make up for a little fresh air and change of scenery.
Dylan took the opportunity to check out the old territory and refresh all his scentmarks.
Here's Dante just taking it all in. You may notice a plethora of tiny footprints in the snow along with some peanuts. Although we didn't see any at the time, the squirrels are around in hiding somewhere, and come out in force to feast once the peanutty scent wafts their way.
I made sure the squirrels had a decent holiday dinner, as well. Friend or foe, it matters not at Christmas.
Dante is obviously startled by something going on in the neighbourhood. He's got the owl ears going on and stunned look on his face. Mancat on alert, he is!
Dylan's still busy checking out all areas of his territory. From our driveway ...
... to our neighbour's driveway. Hmmmm, here's something new!
Dante's standing at the corner of the garage, watching as something approaches.
And look what it is! The mancats reunite!
Just a brief greeting to check in with each other. And then they're off again.
Dante looks mysterious, here, peering through the bushes.
Then he's off to parts unknown with Dylan looking on.
Time to do another tour while the weather permits. You can never be too careful when it comes to the security of your family!
The mancats thoroughly enjoyed their outing because they never know when they might get another chance to breathe the winter air and roam at will. It was a good remedy for the "stir crazies", that's for sure!
