On Friday evening Äiti noticed Lewis-veli was glued to the catio boundary. This photo wasn't taken then as Äiti -for once - was more concerned about what was going on. Lewis-veli was showing 100% focus and he didn't run off when Äiti came outside.
He was scrabbling away and I thought it was great fun to pounce on him. And he ignored me! There must have been something special. Äiti investigated, Lewis moved away, and then a little shrew ran out. And all us mancats were far too slow! Pah! If only we had realised. It escaped. But I can tell you, there were five of us on mousewatch for several hours after that. Paws up to Lewis - and Äiti did feel very sad that she had spoiled his fun.
But I have had some consolation with my favourite mouse.
