[ A broad pile of boulders, probably thirty feet high, looms over a stretch of ground dotted with confiers. ]

[ Loiosh, an orange tabby wearing a green harness, stands in the shade of a couple of really big boulders stacked atop each other. He’s looking off to the right, ears and whiskers perked forward curiously. ]

Loiosh does love scrambling around on rocks, just like his Momma. He’s better at the jumping part, though. Continue reading cats: little boy on a big rock edition
[ Loiosh, an orange tabby wearing a green harness, has his head turned to the side, muzzle pressed right up against the spot where his harness is mussing his fur. ]

[ A close view of Loiosh’s face — he’s an orange tabby, with white whiskers, and a couple of black freckles on his pink nose. ]
… but how could such a sweet, adorable boy possibly be such a trouble, you ask?
Like this, y’all. Like this. Continue reading cats: halping edition
[ Major Tom, a big grey tabby, stands at the edge of a big rock, looking down on the trees below. ]
Tom is usually all about Woods Day, and he followed me along happily enough when I went rock climbing.
