We had some lovely weather in Melbourne last Sunday. The sun was shining and crowds of people were outside in T-shirts and singlets enjoying the spring weather. A & I packed a picnic lunch and took the cats out for their first outdoor adventure. We placed the girls in their harnesses and carried them to the nearby Carlton Gardens, laid out a picnid rug and let the cats out of the bag. At first, they both stayed close by A, getting used to their new environment.
Soon, however, we noticed Bella creeping off the picnic rug to lay on the ground. Look at her reaching out with her tongue for the blades of grass! She was just soaking up the glorious sunshine and keeping a sharp eye on her new surroundings, her curiousity aroused by the movement of people, birds and bees around her. Tasha remained too cautious to stray off the rug. She remained close to A the entire time, content to sit in front of him and to share some gourmet cheese offerings that we had picked up from Simon Johnson. Look at the way she is gazing adoringly at A in this next photo:
Head over to Clare's at Eat Stuff to see photos of the other gorgeous felines...
