Dolce is a troublemaker

I don't have any pictures of Dolce's antics this weekend, but you have to trust me she is a troublemaker.

This weekend was the work in the yard weekend. I hadn't mowed the lawn for a while and it was quite long. We won't go into too many details about how Dandelions became the dominant perennial in our flower beds. My Wife was busy with work this weekend, so I decided to enlist my nephew and the two worked on geting all the yard work done. He is still in High School, and never says no to the opportunity to earn a couple of bucks.

My nephew met Dolce when she was a wee little kitten. She took to him instantly, but then again she is a little heart breaker. She was hesitant at first but then it seemed she suddenly remembered him and they were best friends again. Now that you have the image of two guys working hard outside, with a couple of cats running around and investigating everything we were doing.

Before Dolce was on a leash when she went out, but since we were outside the entire time, I let her go leash free. Well, she ran, and she ran, and she chased bugs, and she attacked bushes, and she ran and she jumped. Of all the activities she did, bug chasing was her favourite. My nephew laughed that she was even trying to chase after a couple of bees.

This leads us to the complaint of Dolce being a troublemaker. I don't mind her chasing bees or wasps. Sooner or later she catch one, and maybe she will get stung. If she does, I'm pretty sure that will end the lure of bee-chasing. But, damn it Dolce, don't swat at the bee flying by while I'm carrying you into the house. All that does is tick off the bee. The bee doesn't separate you from me when he gets whacked by an overeager kitten paw. Now, my nephew and I have to deal with the ticked off bee. Luckily no one got stung. Getting your dad stung by a bee is a real quick means to end your yard priviledges.

  3. I stay away from the bees and wasps or anything that can bite back. A nice slow spider is more of my liking.

  6. Dolce, if I didn't know better, I'd think you did that on purpose... (Our Eldest Boy is in HS, and he's been helping our grandparents out with yardwork this week for a few extra bucks. HS boys are good for that kind of stuff, Mom says.)

  7. Hmmmmmm, we're not so sure Dolce doesn't know exactly what she's doing. Perhaps she's testing to see if you'd still love her EVEN if she were responsible for a bee bite or two ... Alberta, Sky, Blackie and Charlie

  11. Happy Belated Purrrthday, Bella!

    As for the bee-swatting, that sounds mighty dangerous. My human pet yells at me when I start doing the same thing when a wasp enters our house. Doesn't she know I am doing it to protect her?
