Wild Cat Invasion

Our camping trip took an quite unexpected and exotic turn when Mother Nature subjected us to a vicious wild cat invasion.

Hey dogs. Whose picnic table is this?

When we hang out in our campsite on our picket line, Hu-Dad expects us to be calm and quiet no matter who walks past. We questioned the rules when these creatures tried to claim our campsite as their own.

Yes, they are IN our campsite!

We yelled at them, but reinforcements appeared from the woods.

Are you yelling at my friends?

Oh, sure, some of you are saying they are cute, but let’s be clear they are armed and dangerous. This photo proves it.

P.S. – Yes, this is a colony of feral cats living in the woods right behind our campsite. The gray one has been particularly brave and taunted us several times.

    Charlee: “Wow, our feral cousins seem to have quite the attitude.”
    Chaplin: “Mama says I have an attitude too sometimes.”
    Charlee: “Not to the point of taunting an entire pack of dogs.”
    Chaplin: “Well, I have attitude. I’m not crazy.”
    Charlee: “We wanted to come and thank you all for being Dennis’s good friends for all these years.”
    Chaplin: “Yes, it meant a lot to him, and to Mama and Dada too.”
    Charlee: “Dennis told us to come and tell you ‘ok bye’.”
    Both: “Ok bye.”

    There is a colony of feral cats in the farm behind us (they are barn cats). Every once in a while they venture through the field into our property … I’m not sure if it’s a rite of passage for the cats or for them to laugh at how stupid they can make the dogs act

    Nice, healthy looking kitties. Did they drive Landon nuts?

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
