Up A Tree

There is a new cat in the neighbourhood (from a couple houses down, we found out). It's black, very young, and super friendly! So friendly, it has tried to come into our house on a number of occasions. Our male cat, Isaac, who is a big and old boy, considers himself the alpha around these parts. He does not like this new one poking about, but he's pretty calm about the whole thing, as long as he asserts his dominance once in a while.

It's (Evan called him "the new Isaac") a very adventurous cat. The other day it decided to chase a bird, who was perched in the highest branches of one of our trees in the backyard.



That silly bird thought it was safe that high up.



After some coaxing, and a few scrambles to not fall to his death, he made his way down low enough that I could grab him as he was dangling from a not-so-stable branch by his claws.

At least it made for some good entertainment for the kids (even though I practically had a heart attack, thinking I was going to have to clean up cat guts from the lawn if he did fall).
