King Of The Jungle - Thankful Thursday




Hi Pals,

Excuse me while I see if I can find that chippie - I saw him run in here.









Maybe I'd better sit down and wait for him.  He has to move sometime.














Might as well rest until that little guy shows himself.


I sure am Thankful M and D take me outside in a harness with leash cuz M says out of the 4 kitties they have had, the first one got to go outside on a leash and now me!  Guess I'm pretty special.   

She also says if your pawparents don't let you outside, it's probably better cuz I ask to go out almost every day, and I don't understand when M says "No, not today Mario."   It also means that either  M or D have to sit outside with me so I don't get into trouble I guess.   They don't mind doing it cuz they are retired and have the time.  

Thanks to @PepiSmartDog for hosting the blog hop again today.

Until next time

Mario

It sure looks like fun Mario, but the chippy might not think so!

Prudence said...

Aren't the great outdoors wonderful buddy! We're very glad that you like going out in the yard w/ M & D!

We aren't allowed outside because we are supposedly "skittish." :-(

The Island Cats said...

Mario, I'm the only one here that gets to go outside sometimes...always with harness and leash. Like you, I'm always asking to go out and I don't get to go nearly as much as I would like.

I'm glad you're always on a leash when you go out. It's dangerous for cats out there. Nicky used to go out and would stand at the back door crying all the time. TW said it was very annoying.

You are one lucky kitteh, Mario and it looks like you have a great place to investigate! Hope your little chippie showed up. Have a happy Friday! xoxo

Christine said...

Lucky You, Our cat doesn't want to go outside, because our goats are really big!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Lucky you, Mario! So, did the Chippie reappear?? My Human used to take the boys before me out for walkies on a leash, but once she tried to put that thing on me and I ran SCREAMING in the opposite direction dragging the whole thing after me so now she doesn't try that anymore, MOL!

Ann Staub said...

You are a pretty lucky kitty indeed! Your mom and dad are right about not going out all the time. It's kinda unsafe out there.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We much rather watch the outside from the catio. OR be outside WITHOUT a harness (to which Mommy says NO).

Did the chippie finally showed himself?

Tamago said...

You sure are very lucky kitty, Mario, to get to go outside and enjoy nature safely. You do really great walking in harness. I hope chippie shows up again for you :-)

We know you have your peeps trained up right, Mario! And, what does "no" mean?

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Hey, that's pretty neat. You get to go out sometimes. Jan used to have cats she took outside on a leash but now there are too many of us. :)

meowmeowmans said...

We think it's great that you go outside on a leash and harness, Mario! Did you ever find that chippie?

ABBY said...

Oh Mario that looks fun!

Caren Gittleman said...

so glad that you go out on a leash Mario! It's MUCH safer! Love your new blog photo!

Terry's Tete-a-tete said...

What a lucky kitty to get to go outside like that. I wish others in my neighborhood would do that with their's. Poor Oreo gets so frustrated with them prancing threw his yard and he can't play with them.

Deb Barnes said...

We get to go outside on special occasions, completely supervised, in our enclosed yard. But still, some of us kitties have to wear a leash and a harness for some unknown reason... ahem, Zoey and Kizmet.

Good luck catchin a Chippie! We cant get close to them.

We're thinking yer Bein might find the hole they live in iffen ya show them and put a rock down the hole when they re outside.

THAT would sure surprise them...

CATachresis said...

Well, did you catch the chippy? In the UK a chippy is slang for a fish & chip shop mol xox

Oui Oui said...

We don't like Out There at all! Those of us who had to live there had enough of it, and those of us who didn't, have no desire to. The mom tried to walk Oui Oui on a leash one time and it was embarrassing dragging her around, because she refused to stand up or walk.

You're lucky you have all that stimulation to keep you busy! Hope you've been well, Mario. We have missed you!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi Buddy, Hope your week started out with a bang! Like maybe catching that chippie ;-)

Oui Oui said...

Hi Mario & Mom!
Isn't funny how Katie's mom loves that post? She has left 4 or 5 comments on that post and referred to it in others. I'm so glad someone really enjoyed it. I take a lot of pictures, probably more than a dozen for that post, then pick the best (and the in focus) ones.

I wanted to capture Oui Oui's assumed innocence each time I got out of bed because of her scratching and convey what she might have been thinking as well as the passage of time. She really is a character. She often looks me right in the eye while doing something she knows she shouldn't, like chewing on cords or plastic. I never know if its her sense of humor (which I'm sure she has) or she wants attention. Maybe both, but I lean towards her humor.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Maybe you need a GPS chippie-locator. We just read Easy's bloggie about geocaching. I bet he could help you find that impudent little rodent.

Katie Isabella said...

MARIO! How in the world did I miss this post with your handsome self out there JUST the way you like it! And in the flower bed too..a catloaf! Kissies and lovins to you sweet boy. xoxoxx

The Florida Furkids said...

Thank you for your kinds words about our Clifford. We're still in shock and the thoughtfulness of friends really helps.

Marg said...

Oh Mario, you just have the best Mom and Dad to take you outside on a leash. We know you enjoy that. We sure hope you found that Chippy. Also hope that all of you have a great week end.

Kjelle Bus said...

Mario you are lucky that your peeps are retired and can have walks almost efurryday !
XOXO

Simba said...

We also call them chippies here. We seem to see fewer nowadays than previously. We think a few feral kitties (we assume they are feral though they look very healthy) have clued in that the yards around here with rock walls are a chippie haven.

Yeah, Dad does the same thing with sitting on the deck with us. Sometimes for hours in a day though not continuously.!

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Maxwell: Dood you got that right. Ever since momma took Faraday out on a leash all we hear is his demanding MEOWWWWW to go OUT!

Kitties Blue said...

And because they love you. We have our catio and so can go out almost everyday! Yippee! Did your chipmunk ever return? We don't have those, but we do have squirrels and lots of other critters. Enjoy your outside time. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo.
