Cats Are Ready To Pounce on Spring!

Annie and Eddie wait for springWe cats are ready to pounce on Spring!

Spring is scheduled to arrive at our habitat at 12:57 pm today!   Eddie and I are anxiously waiting and are taking turns keeping watch in all directions just in case Spring decides to surprise us and come early.  Lazy Leopard told us that Spring is not something we can pounce on, like a toy, but we told him we aren’t taking any chances after this winter. He just shook his head a little but I think I saw him smile.

We are getting warmed up.

Eddie is practicing his gripping technique with his Greenmouse so we will be warmed up and ready to catch Spring. We don’t want  to be napping for the big arrival.  We couldn’t help but wonder if at 12:57 all the flowers will bloom and the birds will sing.  Lazy Leopard just sighed and told us Spring is  subtle and takes its time displaying all of its magic.

How much time does Spring need? Lazy Leopard just kept saying you will see and understand in time.  I didn’t really understand so it must not be my time to understand so I ran through my agility tunnel a few times to limber up in case I needed to run Spring down.

Lazy Leopard telling Eddie about Spring

 Lazy Leopard is starting to like us.

This time, Lazy Leopard laughed and said it was good to have kitten enthusiasm in the habitat again.  I am not sure, but I think that means he is starting to like us.  I must admit that Eddie and I are pretty excited to meet Spring.  This is the first one we will experience in our home.   I was having trouble staying awake so I tried to amuse  myself by imitating Lazy Leopard.

Annie Meets Lazy Leopard

i think I am doing a pretty good job.    In fact, I wonder if Eddie can tell us apart.    It won’t be long now, so Lazy Leopard told us to take our places and watch really close for Spring’s arrival.

Eddie and I returned to our lookout spot, taking turns looking in all directions.  Lazy Leopard must really trust us now because he said to  just wake him up when  Spring appears.    Are you waiting for Spring too?
