posers and the cat next door

Looking out of the kitchen window today frolicking across the lawn was a little family of baby rabbits ~ they were hopping all over the place ~

I wonder what Nin and Barney will make out of the scent they leave behind ~ and I thought to myself I hope they can hop out of the garden quickly when the boys are let out ~

Or shall I go out first making a lot of noise so they scatter back into the field next door ~

Oh the decisions I have to make for the wild life that live here ~

Next doors cat was under one of the shrubs when I let the boys into the garden the other day ~ and Barney spotted it ~ now this cat is as big as Barney ~ it turned and clawed it's way up the apple tree ~ when it reached quite a way up it then jumped at least 4 foot onto the fence that separates our gardens and disappeared into the undergrowth ~

when Barney see's something he wants he can't forget it and he circled the garden so many times I felt quite weary for him ~ I hope the day never comes when he actually catches something ~

Hi Ally,  that must have been lovely seeing a whole family of bunnies.  We don`t get rabbits in our garden thankfully, if we did I`m sure Jake would have a wonderful time.  I`m sure Barney and Nin would too!  Great photos. :o)

I like the pictures of your cute doggies.... we have 2 little baby rabbits in the yard too and the cat was looking out the door and one came really close and he jumped up on the screen and was shocked that he wasn't out side I think.... good thing we put that new pet proof screen in the door. lol  Sandra

I'm sure the wildlife in you garden is very grateful to you for helping them out. Hope the rabbits don't go eating your plants after you being so kind to them. LOve Joan.

I love watching rabbits and other wildlife playing. I once had a mummy and two baby badgers in my garden! Lucky my two Border Collies weren't out there! I hope Barney never catches anything too! Have a lovely evening. Jeannette xx
