Tuxedo Cat in a Tree
Patchouli goes out side a couple of times a day. She is happy staying inside when it is too hot or too cold, but in the spring and fall, she really enjoys spending time outside. Unfortunately, she is a huge chicken and all the other kitty cats know it. Even though she is bigger than all of them, she is a lover not a fighter. As soon as she is approached by another cat, she cowers and yowls like she is being killed. If she would just turn around and give them a slap or two, I'm sure they would leave her alone. But she doesn't. She cowers or runs.
Anytime I go outside to bring her in, one of the first places I look is in the dogwood tree. It is her favorite place to get away from mean kitties. She is pretty comfortable up there and will stay there as long as she needs to. It's been tricky getting her down, but I have a super soaker that I use on the mean neighborhood cats, and it comes in handy. I squirted it once near her and she got down, now all I have to do is pull the trigger and when she hears the motor sound, she climbs down.
For my artsy photo this week, I again used the Topaz Labs plugin.
