It is getting warm enough for the balcony window to be open again so Samson and I have been at our posts soaking up the smells and sounds of a thawing city. We don't have a great view here but we can smell and hear everything! Mommy laughs at us because she thinks our noses look like bunny noses while we try to inhale as much of the smells as we can.
The screen is a little beat up because Samson still tries to climb it and he's busted through it a few times. Mommy doesn't want him on the balcony (or me, for that matter) because there's an adjoining balcony with a sheet of metal that separates it and there's space for a cat to get under to the neighbors. The neighbor doesn't like cats (what's wrong with her?) so Mommy doesn't want us over there. Plus, we're pretty high up and because we're still young, she doesn't know if we'll try to balance along the balcony edge. Her old cat, Muddy was allowed out there but she said he couldn't jump up to the top of the balcony if he tried!
Here's a video of Samson trying to burst through the screen again. There's a little bit of swearing near the end when the Ball Guy watches our reaction to a seagull squawking (Mommy has to learn more about editing video). If you're offended by that type of stuff, keep the volume down. Samson still thinks he's a kitten and that old screen will not hold out long against his big body!
Speaking of Samson thinking he is still a kitten, he is competing in the Kitty Fight Club competition and today is the last day to vote for his round. Personally, I'm a little offended that Mommy didn't enter me in the contest but I'll let it slide this time.
Happy Spring everyone!
