Today it was raining (as usual), so as Les and I were standing in the rain, while the boys were smartly sitting under trees. Tanji managed to get his leash tangled around a little fig tree by the bird feeder, while "watching" birdies, and panicked !!,... maybe thinking something had grabbed him. By the time I got him undone, he pulled out of the bottom half of his harness and was struggling desperately. He was freaked out, so I quickly carried him back to the house. He was a very wet unhappy boy.
Once the entire family came inside (Vladi was already home), Tanji wanted reassurance and tried to get Uschi and Vladi to lick him, by putting his neck right under their heads. But U was wet and licked himself, and well, Vladi is just a kitten and isn't big on licking back, yet.
Les rubbed Tanji's neck dry with a towel,...
and Tanji did some spot clean-up.
That is an unhappy baby-cat, with a little
broken whisker hanging down by his left eye.
a lot of reassuring pets and watched him closely
(of course, he is always near by anyway!)
