In Hot Pursuit

When Thomas, the neigbors' cat, comes to visit, it's usually for a meal, some affection, a little catnip and an occasional nap. But now and again he turns his ears just so, and that means he's ready to play.

We pull a thin length for him, with beads on the end. He loves the challenge and chases it all over the yard. Running and jumping, he literally bounds across the grass and launches himself into the air.

He shows great form in the last photo - Mikhail Baryshnikat! We tired him out and he headed to the shade by the bird bath, to rest and recharge.
