TWOTON GREEN BLOG... a twist on the way I would say my name as a small child, TwoTon Green Book. This, however, is a blog and not a book.
What is it about dogs and foul dirt? Mine used to come home from the woods covered in unmentionable rancid stuff. So pleased with herself about it, too!Glad ye got sun. I'd swear, it's forgotten it's summer...
i swear dana, i give him a bath and first thing the next morning, when he is let out to do his business, he runs to the driveway and rolls until he has given himself quite a dirt bath*le sigh*
Suz, it's just how he rolls (pardon the pun!). Cute pic of the little guy. Love the scenery pics too, those fat fluffy clouds over the water are gorgeous! Glad you got some sun, too.I'm up waaaaay late, I think it's the full moon...may as well stay up now!
hey ll -- folks seem to be in full blown crazy this full moon. token's rolling in the dirt until he is brown instead of black is causing him to have a lot more baths than he usually gets -- i doubt he is seeing the correlation.of course, his rolling is nothing compared to bailey cat deciding that she's gonna catch every field mouse she can and bring it indoors to share the present. oy
Oy is right - how far indoors does she bring these presents? My parents once had a hunter cat who only left the, uh, innards on the mat outside the kitchen door.
until yesterday, when i caught her bringing one in via the cat flap in the kitchen door, i was going nuts trying to figure out where the mice were getting in at and thinking she was keeping the house clear. she's left their carcass in the doorway to the kitchen from the hallway, in the living room at the foot of my chair (several times) near my wastecan, in my bedroom, in the hallway, and on both rugs near the front door. she got yelled at yesterday and that mouse got away via the back deck and so far (knocking on wood) she's not brought any into the house.
Yell at her and she lets the mice get away.That'll teach ya!
teddy -- she was bringing the mice into the house -- not chasing them away!
Hey, you can't go around smelling like a bar of soap when you're tracking critters - they'll smell you before they see you if you're upwind.Of course, if it's dry for too long Token may run out of stuff to roll in...
hey cujo -- the dry spell has broken -- its raining again and he doesn't roll in mud (thank goodness)on the other hand, bailey cat brought in another mouse today. i was able to stop her before she did it harm and set it free in some ivy on the other side of the house (paper towels do come in handy)
Eeewww....you picked up the mouse? Even with a paper towel? Ewww again!tejanarusa
tejan, it was a nice change to pick up a live critter than the dead carcasses i had been picking up from the floor in various rooms and putting the trash. it was a very small mouse and i guess it was stunned so it isn't like it was moving. i saw the whiskers twitch, realized it was still alive, grabbed a paper towel folded over twice and gently scooped it in the towel. holding the towel by the edges so it was sorta bag shaped, i quickly walked outside and partially opened the towel pouch up. the little head was just popping up as i was gently dropping it in the side terrace that has lotsa ivy.
