Blogging slow down...

I know that many of you out there enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it. The only problem is, its nice outside now, and sitting inside at my computer seems like a waste of perfectly good outside time. So the blogging is slowing down.

E has suggested that I should give myself a twice a week deadline, and make sure that in the evenings I have a go at a blog. Maybe I'll do that. We'll see.

In the mean time, there could be less blogging, but I'll try to include things that come up periodically. And who knows, maybe I'll get a lap top and be able to blog from outside, the best of both worlds!

Noki the Hunter?

Mosa is a great little hunter, if for some reason she ended up on her own again, she would be OK. And then there's Noki. He understands that little critters are interesting to cats, but he doesn't understand how it is one catches them. He sees a squirrel under the bird feeder, trots across the deck, and then launches at a run toward the squirrel, to watch it scamper up a tree.

So, it was with a lot of surprise that I found Noki had caught himself a vole. Noki was really surprised too. I had noticed that Noki was watching something in the leaves pretty intently, and figured it was a bug of some sort. I watched for a minute, and he pounced on what ever it was. And then he looked up at me, and again at his paws. He picked up one paw and out scurried a vole. Noki pounced on it again, and stood there looking confused. He couldn't figure out what to do with it. After a minute he picked up his paws again and off the vole went. By this point Mosa had come to see what was up. Mosa and Noki tracked it across the driveway and into the brush. After a few minutes they came back up the driveway, without the vole. And Noki went back to the leaves to see if another vole would scurry into view.
