It’s finally spring here in midwestern Sweden.
We can tell because there’s no snow, the temperature is getting up above 5°C, and the swans have returned to our little lake (See those two little white dots in that photo up there? Those are our swans).
Even though it was still a little chilly, I took Lorelai and Izaak outside to run around. It has been ages since they really got to run around, and run around they did.
Rory got out the door and immediately started bounding down the hill, with Zak in hot pursuit.
It is amazing how far they can get in such a short time. They are almost down to the road at the bottom of our hill.
Rory was fascinated by something in those sticks…
…Whilst Zak was more interested in trees.
Finally I got them back up the hill…
…and into the open area behind our apartment.
They’re very familiar with the back of our apartment.
We had an audience…apparently that other cat we saw on the balcony last summer has a roommate.
As much as they enjoyed running around on the back lawn, it was pretty clear that there was only one ultimate goal…
Rory did her usual digging holes in the sand and then running away from them.
Finally we all got cold enough to go back in the apartment. But we had 45 minutes of fun and bonding before we went back in.
