Lion In The Snow

Earlier today I was stalked all the way out to the compost pile. And I was repeatedly pounced on, also.

The Neighborhood Lion paid me a visit. I hadn't seen him in quite awhile, but I knew he'd been around. He'd been leaving tracks on the deck, and up and down the paths we shovel in the yard. He's the reason I didn't shovel a path to the bird feeders.

After he followed me all the way out and back, he insisted on some petting. I love the sound of a cat's purr, don't you? 

He rolled around in the driveway for a few minutes, showing off his flexibility. And then suddenly, something caught his attention.

He was off, stalking something else, and I was forgotten. That's the way of a cat, hmmm? Only the tracks left behind.

That's a cat for you! We have a few neighborhood cats that come and go. Sometimes they come up on the deck and look in through the slider. By the time I get the kids' attention to look at them, they are gone!

It must be nice for the neighborhood to have a lion on patrol, but you really should shovel him a path to the bird feeders so he can check on the birds' well-being.

The neighborhood lion is quite an adventurer, messing around in the snow in this extreme cold!

He is a handsome lion indeed, and how nice of you to help jumpstart his engine in this cold weather. :)

I do love that lion. He is quite entertaining and such a flirt.
Made me laugh about not shoveling the snow to the bird feeders. Smart gal you are.
