[ A no trespassing sign is posted n a tree trunk that leans towards a dirt road. A thick cable is locked to the tree as well, & stretches across the road, though it’s laying on the ground & doesn’t really block anything. ]
I found this sign right next to where I’d set up for Woods Day last week. It was in the middle of the national forest, but whatEVer, I GUESS.
I waited with bated breath to see if NO TRESPASSING applied to cats …
[ Loiosh, an orange tabby wearing a green harness, stands facing away from the camera. He’s looking at the cable where it stretches across the road. ]
… yeah, nah.
[ Loiosh is straddling the cable like it’s just another fallen branch; he’s more interested in sniffing a big hunk of wood. ]
Tom, either, though he took his time at it.
[ Major Tom, a big grey tabby wearing a black harness, steps determinedly across the cable, right in the middle of the dirt road. ]
There was extensive Dramatical Posing on top of those big trunk pieces.
[ Loiosh is standing on a BIG hunk of tree trunk, probably two feet wide & three feet tall; he’s looking left, over his shoulder. ]
[ Tom’s sitting, mostly facing the camera but looking off to the right. The purple chestplate of his harness is visible. ]
Also Loiosh got to show off his continuing lack of manners!
[ Tom’s sitting on the truck platform, facing away from Loiosh, who’s got his front paws on that one & his hindpaws on another & is looking interestedly at the back of Tom’s head. ]
[ Tom stood up, which means that Loiosh could stick his nose into Tom’s butt, which is precisely what he did. ]
[ Tom has spun around to face Loiosh, with his ears at VERY alert angles & his tail lashing. Loiosh is backing off, holding his head at that ‘oh please don’t hit me’ angle. ]
… look, he stopped BEFORE Tom hadda punch him, this is an IMPROVEMENT.
