Cats Tuesday: George the Butterfly Hunter
Yesterday I was out butterfly hunting on my land (and I found that I have a butterfly sanctuary out there in the two fields — it is simply spectacular for the butterflies and moths out there and there were hundreds) and George came with me. He loves hiking with people, just like Buddy does. I posted other photos of George in action but this was the best shot of all. He was running towards me after I called for him. But a butterfly caught his attention and he tried to capture it. Luckily, he failed. He wasn't upset about that — he continued leaping through the buttercups, vetch, bedstraw, hawkweed and other wildflowers to run with me. Is there anything more beautiful than a cat running freely and safely in wildflowers? I am blessed that George decided to live with me. Please click the photo to view it large in a new window.
