Tanj The Protector

There is a feral farm cat that has regularly visited our property,
ever since we moved in several years ago. The cat knows we don't
want it around, and runs whenever it sees us.

Now with the boys, we don't want them to get social.

Tanji does not like this "intruder" and
is very vigilant at chasing it off.

Tanji patrols his yard.

Someone was up here,...

I think they were here also,...

They better not get on my picnic table,...

After a high speed chase across the yard and through the woods,
Tanji puts on the brakes as he approaches the fence line.

Another day,

Tanji patrols the woods,...

Hmmmm,... There it goes,...

Tanji took off, I ran after him,...
But with T's speed it was a split second before
he was on the cat and,...

the two shot waaay up a tree.

As I caught up,...

Tanji lept out of the tree,...
(from at least 15')

AAAAAKKKKK !!! TANJI !!!!!,...
Luckily Tanji is a super athlete and knows
how to land these high altitude leaps,...
I don't know if I can handle them however!!!

The feral cat knows Tanji is not its friend
and stayed in the tree until we were gone, but

Tanji is always on alert.

OMG, Lavs. I think my heart would have launched right out of my throat if I witnessed a tree dismount like that one! I'll bet it got your heart going.

That's a longggggg way down to the ground there. My Bengal boy got out the sliding glass door on my second floor porch and dove off to the ground without much trepidation, which amazed me, but Tanzi is jumping from even higher. How many feet high was he when he jumped?

Whew, it's a wonder you didn't have a heart attack! I wonder if the farm cat comes round because he is hoping you guys will adopt him and give him a nice home and good food. No good if the boys don't like him though! xxx

OMG. The great flying cat.

Brave strong Tanji! We know you are very athletic, but you have to be careful and not give your Dad a heart attack!
