Finally, Outside Again, Part 2

AYLA:  First, we are sorry we havent been visiting lately.  Things have been kinna busy sometimes, and we were hiding from the noise a lot.  We are tryin ta catch up with the posts.  TBT says he will help us visit later tonight or tomorrow when we are all feelin calm again.  We DONT wanna visit our friends while our tails are still twitchy.  Cod only knows what we might say wrong...

So, Wensday afternoon, when we all finally got out again a second time, I watched from the deck.  No way I was going out there first (besides, I LIKE stayin on the deck most times annyway).  I let Marley and Iza explore, while I watched...

Marley actually went out first.  Well, he was ecited.  From the deck, it looked like TBT had arranged fer a HUGE pile of litter.  But he was disappointed.  He meowed back up ta us "Its not what it looks like - its like chunky sawdust").
He was back in "tail-down" mode.
Iza ran down ta check fer herself.  As ya can see, they were BOTH a bit disappointed.  And they said it smelled kinna odd.  Like I couldn't tell THAT from downwind!
But they both felt a need to explore the changes to the yard.  
Marley thought the ripped up bare dirt was "pretty inneresting".  Lots of rather differnt smells.
Iza decided to walk on the stuff.  Its a lovely picture, isnt it?  And yes, she "initiated " the pile of wood chips, both #1 and #2.  Well, of course ya gotta try both ta see if there is some difference.
She declared "its like leaf litter but better fer covering".  Hearing THAT, Marley returned and examined the wood chips with new interest. 
He found a spot fer hisself and "used" it. 

I may try that myself soon.

Thus ends the story of the tree removal...

The moment I saw that pile, I figured somekitty would need to test it out! I sure would have.

Derry would make a bee line for the pile!

We read several previous posts to see what was going on -- tree removal! Sounds scary and we're sure you're all relieved (no pun intended) that it's over and done with.

What's TBT doing with the back yard, then? Did we miss reading that?

Thanks for stopping by...We never took to Wellness, our human wishes we weren't so fussy! Nicki seems to really like the Weruva chicken and chicken and pumpkin, though, paws crossed he keeps eating it! (And she's cut way back on his kibble treats too. We get only 2 TBSP kibble a day each, but Nicki's been getting more because he gets some after his Flovent. Now he's getting only a few pieces after his Flovent doses, not another TBSP worth.) In the end, it likely won't make a difference, he seems to have a predisposition to running high (his calcium).

Purrs and peace.

Fuzzies - Our backyard is still mostly wildish with lots of other trees, shrubs and undergrowth ta sneak around in catching mousies and moles and voles. TBT just got rid of 2 big trees that were threatening ta fall on our house and were dying from the high tops down. That HUGE oak would have crushed the entire house and mebbe us too.

So those 2 trees had to go. The tree guys said we shold have 2 other big ones cut down too, but they dont threaten the house so TBT said they can stay for now.

As far as wet foods go, we get whatever TBT buys. We like some stuff what isnt all that healthy, but he wont buy it fer us. So we havta eat what he offers.

Boy, we sure wish we were lion-sized. He'd buy what WE wanted then fer sure!
