Yesterday, we took some recycling out to the bins, and of course the cats came with us. Which, of course, drew the kids in like a magnet.
This one little boy, who we’ve seen outside as long as we’ve been taking the cats out, loves the cats…
…but his love tends to involve happy shrieks and picking them up. Alfred and Izaak generally get enough love and prudently run away and hide in the bushes. But Lorelai on her leash is a captive audience for his attention.
It’s funny. This boy loves the cats, but is also a little afraid of them. I don’t know what he thinks is going to happen or what he thinks Rory is going to do.
Eventually Rory went into one of our recycling bags. This fascinated the boy.
It also brought a little girl to look at Rory in a bag.
They had a pretty good time playing with the bag, Rory and the kids. It was cute to watch.
