I've talked before about how Patchouli doesn't get out much. She is such a scaredy cat and all the other cats know it. They rush at her, just to watch her cower. The thing is, she is a pretty good sized cat with lots of muscle. She is bigger and stronger than any of them and could easily kick their butts if she would just stand up for herself. But she won't.
She doesn't make it on the blog too often because she is usually in her basement apartment, laying at her window, which looks out onto the bird feeder. So, when I saw her up in the dogwood tree, I just had to snap a few photos of her. Everyone loves a good cat in the tree photo, right?
You might think that she climbed up there to enjoy the view. Oh, there are times that she gets frisky and dashes up the tree. I don't think this was one of those times, though, because this was what was at the base of the tree.
Yep. I have no idea how long it took me to resolve this situation, but it was a while. As soon as I bent down to pick up mean old Coco, she took off running. I finally captured her and carried her inside. I just hurriedly slipped her inside and went back to the tree. My husband, who had no idea what was going on, saw her at the front door wanting out, let her out! So, while I was trying to coax Patchouli down, Coco shows up again. I finally caught her again, put her inside and told the hubs to not let her out under any circumstances. I went back outside to try and convince Patchouli that Coco was gone. I tried cat toys, string, yarn, and even catnip to try and get her down. Finally she came down and the crisis was over!
For the artsy photo, I used Topaz Labs.
