The Outside!

There now exists a plan for enclosing our back courtyard. Mum's been a bit too busy to actually go to Bunnings and get the supplies required, though.
So I have been going on excursions in my harness. I'm really getting used to it now, and don't do the "my harness is so heavy I have to drag my belly along the floor" walk when I'm outside.
It's nice to be out there chomping on the plants and rolling in the dirt again. One of my favourite ever things to do is to writhe on the concrete, and I have some good concrete blocks to roll around on.
The vet cat, Kitten, has been in our courtyard a few times, so I've been having a good sniff of the areas he has been in.
I blow raspberries at the idea of Kitten in my garden!
At the moment, my courtyard is full of dust. It is red dust from the dust storm yesterday! Mum and dad sleep with a window open, so their bedroom is full of red dust too. This is what the sky looked like when we were having breakfast yesterday.
It was like looking through a piece of orange cellophane, and a little bit spooky.
Here are the requisite kitten photos for the day.
I must admit, they are growing me. I like to sit on top of my cat tree and watch them wriggle around and eat their dinner.
They still aren't as cute as me though:)

The red skies are amazing.

Those kittens keep getting cuter and cuter. Look how big they are now!!

They could never be as cute as you Suey. I am glad you get to go outside a bit now!

We saw your skies on the news yesterday - amazing!
I'm glad you are better with your harness too - when Mommy tries one on me, it steals all of my bones and I can't walk!
Smoochies to your and those kittens!

You look gorgeous in your Puppia harness, Suey! We hope you'll get your enclosure soon!

Those red photos are very impressive. As for the kittens...... we just love'em!

We have never seen such a sky!
This outdoor enclosure will be wonderful, Suey. What lucky kitties you are! The babies look so cute and happy it's a joy to look at them.

That sky and red dust is askeery! Do you get that often or iz it a fluke?

You look very kyoot un your Puppia Harness. Mom keeps saying she might get us some since we are Not Allowed Outside anymore, but she iz very confused about the sizing.

Thanks for those extra-kyoot Harry, Ron and Hermione photos! They are growing! They look nice and fluffy now! We can't wait to see their eyes and ears open!

We see sand storms sometimes, too! Our sky's don't get that red.

Hooray for Puppia harnesses! It looks lovely on you.

The images from the dust storm are amazing. I had no idea it looked like that. Scairty!

That dust storm looks pretty bad, looks like it would choke you if you were caught out in it. Love the pictures of you, very cute and I like your harness.

Looks like you had a nice excursion in the back yard and we're very glad that you weren't out in it when the red dust was blowing around - that would be scary!

We're so glad to see that the kittens are doing so well - you and your mommy are great to take care of them!

Wow those are crazy sky pictures! We never get anything like that here. It is very cool looking but I am guessing it isn't fun to be in. I am glad you are having fun outside and are used to your harness.

And it is great that the kittens are doing well - they are so tiny and cute!!

Suey,you look SO good outdoors!!!!!
That is where the grass is :o We need to get Mom to take us out, but Winter is coming so we know she won't this year ;)
That red sky is pawsome. We had a similar thing some years ago. Big fires in Quebec caused us to have red/orange sky for a few days.
We have never seen that happen due to dust storms though!!! Bet it made a big mess and your folks have to clean everything :O
The kittens are looking great too :)
Maggie may, you are a pawsome kitty!!!!!
You have been through a lot, but we bet it was made easier because of all the love in your super forever home!!
WE wish you the best life!!!!!
