Jacques (AKA Joe Cool) knows how to seriously relax.
Here’s another video by Tuffy P, this one starring Jacques and Jack Shadbolt, our two red cats. Not a lot happens in this video until the very end when they take off after a bird (no birds were harmed in the making of this video), so if you were expecting a plot line or anything like that, you’re in for a let down.
I’m mentioned here before that our cat Jacques likes to go on walks with us. Tuffy P caught a bit of the action on video on this cold frosty morning.
Every year I plant some catnip in different areas of the garden for the cats to enjoy. It never gets a chance to naturalize because they eat it, roll in it, drag it away, dig it up and so on. Jacques discovered the catnip today. In the first photo, he has completely enveloped the plant with his body.
I posted the other day about Jacques tagging along on the morning dog walk. My friend Az commented and requested photos. Well, most days Tuffy P does the morning walk but I normally do it Sundays, so this morning I brought a camera along, thinking that I could snap a few photos if Jacques joined the party.
It was dark still when we left. We walked down to Lake Prom and across to 25th and then north. We were about five or six houses up when Jacques greeted us. Here he is saying good morning to Ellie Mae…
It turned out to be a challenge to photograph Jacques walking with the dogs. This is because I had the dogs in front of my on leashes and as well, Jacques is very active bopping around all over the place on the walk. The camera is slow in the darkness with the flash on, so almost every time I took a shot, Jacques was gone when the shutter activated. I did get this one shot of Jacques leading the parade…
I think the only way to photograph the everyone together will be for me to go along with Tuffy on another day, get ahead of the pack and photograph her, the dogs and Jacques together coming toward me. For today though, this will have to do.
