Friday Flashback and Caturday Art

 This flashback comes from October 2007

One side of our garden has a high hedge but the other side had an ordinary hedge which we could jump over. That meant mum had to keep stopping what she was doing to make sure we hadn't wandered off, or worse still, we had to stay indoors until she took us for a walk. Dad decided to take the hedge down and build the Purrizen Fence. Now we can stay in the garden all day and mum calls us in when she goes to bed.

THE PURRIZEN FENCE

Yoo mite be wondering where the nice hedge that has lots of mousies living in it has gone. Well dad got a big masheen and it ate it. Cuz there wuz nuffin there after the masheen eatid it, dad had to build a fence to keep us in. It's like a purrizzin.

What's this ladder doing here?

I better go up and haf a look and see what's out the uvver side

Hmmphhh nuffin diffrunt than yooshull, mite as well go back down.

Well if yoo had a look, I'm going to haf a look too.

Can't see ennyfing at all.

That's better, now I can see.Dad sed he built this big fence so we can stay in the garden all day if we want, and mum won't haf to keep watching us all the time. It's ok cuz she's still going to take us furr walks around the feelds too.

Did yoo see that skeery pikchur yesterday? There is a ghost living in our fence. Mum sez it is watching us to make sure we are good boys. Yoo bet we are going to be good!!


I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.


I used Gaugain3 at 70%, then added Abstract at 30%. I was trying to make it look more scary!

The fence was a great idea although i feel sorry for all the mousies that had to find new housies.

II bet mouse hunting was easier in the field than that dense hedge...and that ladder sure made for a sky high perch!

The fence was genius and loved the ladder pics heheh they were very nosey ha!

Have a laddertastic McWeekend 👍

Kea said...

Your dad built an amazing fence, so high! You both certainly were excellent ladder climbers!! We suspect that our angel Nicki might have jumped down the other side if he were there, wild cat that he was.

The Island Cats said...

Impressive how those boys climbed the ladder!

Sandee said...

Ladder climbing is an art and you had it down. Purrfect.

Our Power has been out all morning: According to power company "outage due to an object falling on lines" aka somebody ran into a tree or pole knocking out power
OMCs look at your grand balance up and down the ladder.
I can hardly do it with 2 legs and you have 4

That is a very high fence, and it has a very scary face!

Eastside Cats said...

The gilded cage is still a cage, huh Angel Boys?
The Hubby's father was a carpenter, and he put in miles of knotty pine wood.
That wood has faces and eyes!

The Florida Furkids said...

That ghost would have scared us too. Nice art and thanks for the puzzle.

In Lucy's memory said...

This is a fun flashback. What a nice high strong-looking fence. And with its own resident scary face to keep you boys inside your purrizzin! Mom's catwork did the trick with making the face even more scary. Hope Mom and Dad are doing well. Until next time...Jean

Wow, that is a creepy face in the fence! MOL...the boys are braver than I am when it comes to climbing ladders!

pilch92 said...

Great flashback. I would have been nervous of a kitty climbing that ladder. They sure were brave boys. That looks like a wolf face in the fence- creepy. Thank you for the puzzle. XO

Yvonne said...

Great pics. What an interesting scary face in the fence.

Mickey's Musings said...

MOL! That ladder could be good for escaping too ;) Good thing your mum took you for walks often :)
That plank with eyes looks scary!!!
Purrs, Julie

Creepy fence!

John Bellen said...

I'd be sorry to see the hedge go, but what a fence went up in its place! That provided a real spot for the boys to play in all day. And that ghost is kind of scary; I saw his eyes as soon as I looked at the picture!

CCL Wendy said...

Great used of your art filter to make the ghost stand out even more. Of course I saw it right away when I looked at the closeup of the fence, but enhanced it is truly amazing.

It was a great idea to have a fence instead of just a hedge to keep the boys in. Less worry for Mom! And the pictures of them going up and down the ladder is PURRiceless!

meowmeowmans said...

Such talent, climbing that ladder like that! The purrison fence is great, but that face is scary!!!

The J-Cats said...

OMC! As if having a fence isn't bad enough, but it has eyes that watch you wherever you go!!!

that is a pretty cool ghost!

Marvelous Marv said...

WoW! That is a totally super tall fence! We have pretty high fences around here to keep the evil deer out but they are NOT as tall as yours. Mom is loving the new floor, her and Alex have their bedrooms and hallway left to finish, and she will be furry happy when the painting is finished too...It takes far too many coats to cover up some colours (and to get rid of the cigarette smoke).

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

That was sure some good ladder climbing! We only ladder inside, here.

Katie Isabella said...

Thank you for your kind and loving words on Katie's bloggie. Both she and me...we are grateful. XX

Three Chatty Cats said...

That ladder certainly did lend itself to some adorable photos!

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

that sure was a tall ladder!! I don't recall ever seeing this post before, probably because you posted it before I even started blogging! xoxo

At our house Daddy cannot leave a ladder unattended because my brofur Wabbit will climb it. He once tried to climb a 20 foots ladder in our living room while Daddy was painting the ceiling. Momma nearly had heart failure. So sad.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Nothing got by you two boys, did it?

Cathy Keisha said...

That's one scary fence!

Pam and Teddy said...

I remember these - one of my FAVORITE set of photos of the boys exploring that ladder.........SO DARN CUTE!

Hugs, Pam
