Aby-a-Day – May 9: Holey intervention

Next to the Everett Arena, where the cat show is held, is a really pretty park along the Merrimack River. After a hard day of being judged, a cat needs a little nature – we went there after the first day of the show last year, too.

Jacoby was so excited to get outside for a while.

I let him walk wherever he wanted and just followed him.

He really had a good time out there.

I think after a whole day of being a pampered show cat, I guess he needed a little wilderness.

There were all sorts of interesting holes and hollows to explore, like this one in the trunk of a tree.

“Anyone in there?”

Guess not.

Then he found a super interesting hole in the side of a bank…it may have actually been an animal’s burrow.

He really wanted to go in there!

And he was pretty upset when I wouldn’t let him. Besides not knowing what was down there and where it went…it was dirty and we still had another whole day of a cat show to go to!

Finally we got away from all the holes and out under the trees.

“I’m still mad about the not getting to go inside one, though!”

It was such a gorgeous day. There really is nothing like spring in New England.

The air smells good, the flowers are coming up, and the sun feels so warm!

“And Mom’s a big meanie who won’t let SOME PEOPLE go down really cool holes!”
