cats: flopping edition

It’s mostly been too HOT for Woods Day, & anyway I need to make a BUNCH of soap, so we’ve been sticking close to home. Which is fine; the boys are getting a chance to get used to new roommates. Mostly Jasper, who also took all these pics.

cats: st0ner edition

okay STRICTLY SPEAKING spider plants are a mild hallucinogen for cats, so it’s not QUITE the same as being st0ned, but close enough

Loiosh really loves being st0ned. It’s totally worth the really precarious perch.

cats: everything but the alpacas edition

Loiosh also got to visit the lambs, who were VERY curious but VERY loud about it, which he really didn’t love.

cats: Fountain Creek part two

Having (mostly) dried off from my creek adventures & wrangled Loiosh back into the van, I consulted Jasper for his opinions of how to spend the rest of the day. Turns out he hadn’t slept well on the train (as who WOULD have) so I drove us to Fountain Creek Park, near the fishing ponds, & parked there for the rest of the afternoon.

Mostly there was napping, but Tom was a wigglebutt & had a lot of fun wandering.

cats: Fountain Creek part one

I spent last week in Colorado! I went up for a bunch of reasons, but the biggest one involved alpacas. Before that happened, though, I visited a favourite old haunt, Fountain Creek.

(confidential to Dragonsspine: I know, I know, but I didn’t know I was gonna be there ahead of time)

The day’s FIRST task involved driving to the absolute center of Denver to pick up Jasper from the train station, which, having nowhere to drop off Tyrava (nor time to do so), I accomplished with Tyrava in tow. It wasn’t FUN but I didn’t hit anything or get arrested, so I feel like I did okay.

Having managed that … well, I needed a break. & thus, Fountain Creek.

Loiosh immediately recognized our old stomping grounds.
